It’s always refreshing to see a well-dressed man on campus. Men’s fashion is just as important as women’s fashion, and it’s nice to see male students who embrace their individuality and actually put effort into their daily outfits. Among a crowd of sweatpants and crewneck T-shirts I was able to spot this week’s Fashionisto with his preppy and classy style.
Name: Michael Spanks
Major: Political Science
CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your style?
Michael Spanks: I like to wear a variety of things. I don’t like to get caught up in the fad and wear whatever everyone else is wearing. I would say I’m kind of preppy but with a hint of swag. Don’t get me wrong I love to wear snapbacks, Jordans and Lebrons—but I like to keep it classy. I’ll always find a way of making a certain piece of clothing my own.
CF: What’s your favorite accessory?
MS: Other than the bracelet that my girlfriend gave me, I like to wear my black G Shock watch because it’s very sleek and I can wear it with anything.
CF: What’s your must have for winter?
MS: Scarves are a must have for me. They keep me warm but they also act as a stylish accessory. Plus not to many guys wear them so it sets me apart.
CF: What are your favorite stores to shop at?
MS: Ralph Lauren Polo, Hollister and American Eagle.
CF: Do you have any tips for aspiring Fashionistos?
MS: It’s simple. Just wear what symbolizes you. People who criticize your fashion often wish they had your sense of fashion.
How to: Dress up your favorite pair of jeans with a button-down shirt. There are countless of ways to style a classic button-down and it can easily dress up any outfit. If you like this Fashionisto’s preppy style, recreate it by adding a cardigan on top of your shirt. Not only will it keep you warm, but it looks very polished. Finish off your outfit with a belt and your favorite sneakers and your ready for the day.
