Fashionisto Spotlight

With a new trimester settling in at Johnson & Wales, that means seeing a new group of students everywhere we go. This Fashionisto caught my eye with his unique style since the first day. He is always fearless in his fashion choices! He was caught wearing a plaid shirt button-up and quilted bomber jacket paired with jeans and combat boots. Also, he accessorized with a camel messenger bag and Vans strap back hat.

How To: This look can be worked to fit into many different styles. This Fashionisto gave the outfit a more grunge feel with the heavy duty combats. The outfit can be paired with a pair of loafers for a more classic look. To achieve the upper part of the outfit, you need a button-up (plaid or plain) and a jacket (either a bomber or blazer) to match with the shoes. Also, there is freedom to accessorize for those that don’t fear men’s accessorizes. You can  finish the outfit off with a sleek messenger bag and you’re ready to go!
