FASHION FROM ABROAD: Simple Spring Basics

Fashion From Abroad

Whether you’re a Fashionista/o, you definitely need your essential spring basics ready to throw on, especially if you’re studying abroad. Perfect basic pairs can be a great cardigan and tight jeans or a patterned button-down and light colored shorts. The best part about basics is the ability to mix and match them with each other, making your closet appear bigger than you thought.

This Fashionisto kept his outfit simple but sophisticated while sightseeing around the beautiful city of Florence, Italy. He brought out his springtime colors with the lilac chambray shirt that is the perfect pastel color this season. The addition of his gray cardigan made it a layered look, which could also be achieved with a blazer for a dressier look. Layers even during the warmer weather are continuing to be a trend. Try the layered look with a funky patterned cardigan from Forever 21 for under 20 dollars.

Trends throughout Europe start with the Italian boys who overall have fantastic style. Ermenegildo Zegna is an Italian brand exclusively for men which has been setting the trends for the classic European style. This luxury brand is great inspiration for guys to dress well and put their best fashion foot forward at all times. They love their slim cut looks and tight fitted clothing that is now growing more and more popular with the American boys. For example, American men typically wear their button-down shirts with the top two buttons unfastened, but in Italy all buttons are fastened to the top. This Fashionisto rocked this look which creates a sleeker, dressier outfit even for everyday wear. Try dressing up your basics this spring for a classic Euro look that is right on trend.
