There are certain fashion trends that never go out of style. A classic pair of jeans, a great denim coat and a pair of suede shoes are all perfect examples of timeless pieces that make an ultra-casual and equally cool look. I spotted this Fashionisto on campus on a rainy day earlier this week. I adored his cuffed jeans and the small details in his outfit, such as his suede shoes and gold watch. I completely love and admire how effortless he made this outfit look.
Name: Brandon George
CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing today?
Brandon George: I’m wearing shoes by Florsheim, undershirt and Chambray shirt are by Ralph Lauren, cardigan and jean jacket by Levi Brand Jeans, beanie by Billionaire Boys and my watch is by Casio.
CF: How would you describe your personal style?
BG: My personal style revolves highly around urban wear as well as the NYC/Brooklyn street wear. However, I do tend to touch into more business/business casual wear whenever necessary. I’ve been told I dress like someone from downtown Manhattan.
CF: If you could trade closets with anyone, who would it be and why?
BG: If I could trade closets with someone it would most likely be Pharrell Williams. I love his creativity and how he always pushes the tempo of men’s fashion.
CF: Where do you find style inspiration?
BG: I get a lot of my style inspiration from a lot of the fashion blogs I follow on Tumblr as well as the fashion blogs I check regularly.
CF: Where do you shop?
BG: I’d feel more comfortable answering where don’t I shop. I really don’t like to discriminate when it comes to stores; however, my favorites would have to be Zara, Top Shop, H&M, Karmaloop, Uniqlo, Johnston and Murphy, PLNDR and a vast array of thrift shops.
How To: To create this Fashionisto’s timeless style, start with a pair of Levi Brand Jeans. Next, add a cardigan like this Ralph Lauren one. Top off the look with a Levi’s jean jacket, casual Florsheim shoes and a watch.
