Fashionisto Spotlight

There are certain fashion trends that never go out of style. A classic pair of jeans, a great coat and a worn pair of boots are all perfect examples of timeless pieces that make an ultra-casual and equally cool look. I stopped 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 the belt and the necklace. I completely love and admire how effortless he made this outfit look.
