Alright boys, maybe in middle school you could get away with mismatched shorts and T-shirts, but you’re in college now and having a sense of fashion is anything but lame! Fashionistas on your campuses are looking for well-dressed men who are confident with their style and have plenty of swag. If you want to be that guy, then look no further than this Fashionisto for some tips and tricks on how to get the attention, and maybe even the girl, you deserve next semester.
Name: Justin Starrantino
CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing today?
Justin Starrantino: Today I am wearing Kenneth Cole leather boots, yellow Ralph Lauren pants, Brooks Brothers suspenders, a black Dimiar Louis Vuitton belt and a black T-shirt from the famous Saved tattoo parlor in Brooklyn.
CF: How would you describe your style?
JS: My style depends on the occasion, but none the less I always make sure to have my own twist on things. Something as simple as suspenders worn off the shoulders can add a trendy, hip look that can separate you from the rest of the people in the room.
CF: For a Fashionisto like you, keeping up with current trends must be easy. However, how do you add your own swag to what you wear?
JS: The way I add my own touch to each of my outfits is by sticking with a sleek look, but adding one or two things that stand out. The yellow pants and the suspenders, for example, are definitely a sign of individuality, which is extremely important to a person’s unique style.
CF: A lot of guys want to try colored jeans this summer, what tips do you have to help them rock this look?
JS: Colored jeans are in and the best way to pull them off is staying far away from trying to match the jeans exactly with any shirt or any pair of shoes. Let the jeans stand out and let the rest of your outfit take a back seat for the night. Turquoise, red and yellow are the big colors I see this summer, so definitely try those out.
How To: As mentioned by this Fashionisto, turquoise is a hot color to add to your wardrobe this summer. For example, you could try a pair of bold jeans. Since a colored denim speaks for itself a simple T-shirt could easily complete the look. This outfit could be paired with sneakers or boots, but if you’d like to add more swag, layer your shirt with black vest. I guarantee you’ll be turning more heads than you ever did in middle school.
