Fashionisto Spotlight

Flannels are classic. They are the one staple that has been passed down from generation to generation, of course with some slight changes along the way. Men can be a mystery sometimes but one thing is for sure — they love flannels! When it comes down to it, take a chance and try the bright flannel with a contrast color or pattern. This Fashionisto has pulled off the mixing of patterns and bright colors in a perfect balance of comfy and cool.

CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your personal style?

Bill Geisinger: I would describe my personal style as comfy. I like to be warm and cozy, especially in the winter. Corduroys and flannels are my go-to. Since I am a music major, I wear a lot of band T-shirts and sweatshirts to support the bands I like.

CF: Where do you get your fashion inspirations?

BG: I get my fashion inspirations from bands. I always look at the artist of the bands I like to get ideas for outfits. They normally always wear the clothes I like for example, T-shirts and jeans with beanies.

CF: What are some of your favorite stores to shop?

BG: I like to shop at Urban Outfitters, H&M and T.J. Maxx. Urban Outfitters always has really cool graphic T-shirts. H&M has really good basic shirts and sweatshirts in every color. T.J. Maxx is also a great place because they have good deals on designer items — I always look for jeans there. I also buy band merchandise since I go to a lot of shows.

How To: I love that this Fashionisto has taken a chance with his flannel and used a bright color with a stripe beanie. To imitate this look try a blue and red flannel with a black and white stripe T-shirt, a leather jacket and an OBEY beanie for a effortless cool look.
