While the winter weather is still upon us, it’s much more difficult to spot a worthy Fashionisto around campus. A tasteful jacket is an essential, eye-catching piece that will reflect the outfit lying beneath its thick layers. Not to mention, a casual scarf and gloves will leave your look coated with class. This week’s European Fashionisto set himself apart from the crowd by wearing a well-dressed and well-accessorized outfit. Dressed in a sea of dark colors, his shoes are an especially noticeable piece that reflect a sophisticated and classic style.
Name: Abraham Keller
CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your style?
Abraham Keller: My style is simple, comfortable but still sharp and classy.
CF: Out of all the places you’ve lived, which location is the most fashionable and how has that impacted your personal style?
AK: Basel, Switzerland. As it is one of the bigger cities in Switzerland, people pay extra attention to a decent dress code. Growing up there, I naturally took on some of these habits.
CF: What are some of your favorite menswear trends for the season?
AK: To be honest, I don’t really pay much attention to the newest trends. I like to dress simple and timeless. However, if I see a new trendy look, I do like to incorporate that into my dressing style. A trend that I especially like right now is the long sleeve V-neck shirt.
CF: What is something that every fashionable man should have in his closet?
AK: Every man should own a decent pair of shoes for every season. I personally think that shoes make an outfit. There are so many variations of clothing styles, but none of them look good if the shoes don’t fit in.
How To: This Fashionisto wore a light, navy Jack Threads trench jacket with a simple grey scarf. He comfortably layered a white button-down shirt from H&M with a pair of grey skinny fit trousers from Zara. To complete this look, he wore a pair of casual lace-up shoes from Aldo. This European Fashionisto is modeling an outfit that works for almost every occasion this winter. It’s a simple look that can be mirrored by every Fashionisto.
