Fashionisto Spotlight

The classically scholastic look of jeans and a dress shirt with backpack and sneakers is always an easy go-to for class that will never go out of style. This Fashionisto takes this basic ensemble and adds his own touch through embellished accessories, taking the outfit from D-list to A-list with just simple changes. The studded high-tops, studded black leather MCM backpack and sleek wayfarers add edge and personality, showing off his fashion sense and killing his classmates with fierceness.

How To: Next time you have a simple jeans and shirt day, pair your outfit with various embellished accessories like high-tops and bring back the MCM bag with studs like Niklas does. Add stylish sunglasses to shield your eyes from all of the fashion photographers on the street at NYU fawning over your fabulous outfit.
