Fashionisto Spotlight

While I am searching campus, I find myself noting differences between current trends for women and men. At such a large school, every single style and trend is represented, and it doesn’t take long to scope out a person that definitely put effort into his or her wardrobe choices. And while often times a girl is seen as fashionable when she is dolled up with unique shoes, lots of jewelry or a bold hair style, a boy is seen as fashionable when he resorts to a more classic look. Some would say these Fashionistos are old-fashioned or carbon copies, but I can’t help but think that tasteful simplicity wins the gold medal for men’s fashion. I was instantly drawn to this Fashionisto because of his perfectly classic look. His ever trendy Ray-Ban Wayfarers, paired with a suede, very professional looking jacket was the winning combination in my Fashionisto search. After chatting with him I learned that the amazing jacket he sported was purchased while studying abroad in Florence this past semester, and it made my talk with him that much more worthwhile. Sometimes just the plain fact that a piece of a person’s wardrobe is a  more unique find than from the local mall makes it even more desirable and fashionable.
