New York Fashion Week has begun and besides the shows, street style is by far one of the most important parts of the week. Most guys (and girls) around campus wear puffy, down filled, black jackets, but this Fashionisto caught my eye because of his black trench style peacoat. I can not stress how important it is to stay warm during the Minnesota winters, but I am not a fan of the marshmallow-like winter coats. This Fashionisto’s winter coat caught my eye and had me snapping pictures!
Name: Skyler Rosendale

CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing today?
CF: What do you think about when you get dressed every morning?
SR: I don’t really think about what I’m going to wear in the morning, but I start with a pair of jeans and then decide on the shirt, jacket and shoes after that.
CF: Who is your favorite brand to wear?
SR: Tommy Hilfiger because I like the different type of shirts they offer. My favorite is the rugby style, but I also like the knits and different patterns they have.
CF: Where do you shop most often?
SR: Macy’s or Nordstrom Rack because they have a large assortment of brands for men, and the quality of the clothes they offer are better than other fast fashion stores.
CF: Do you have a favorite accessory to wear?
SR: My gold watch by Invicta. I think a watch is a good way to show some style and class, but not go over board.
CF: How important do you think it is for men to care about their style and what they wear?
SR: I think in the work place it’s very important. A lot of people judge a book by its cover without being aware, and if you look put together you will make a good first impression and hopefully be memorable. When I’m out and about, I think it’s important to look good just for myself, and I think girls appreciate it too.
How To: If you want to stand out and make the ladies appreciate your style, I definitely recommend purchasing a peacoat. Not only will it last forever, but it is also a good coat to have for any occasion, whether it’s for going to class, going to work or for a fancy night out. A pair of jeans and casual pair of boots to weather the snow will work well for a day of classes. Finish your outfit with a button-down of any print and you’re set!
