I love to see Fashionistos and Fashionistas in lavish leisure. When I say lavish leisure, I am referring to class casual or the common tendency for college students to want to be comfortable throughout their long day of classes but not too comfortable where they lose sight of their fashionable senses. For Fashionistas, a great example of lavish leisure is maxi dresses. You can never go wrong with a nice long maxi. Ever. For Fashionistos, it’s all about the perfect T-shirt, preferably graphic. Graphics turn simple into interesting instantly.
Student: Tyrone Shivers
Major: Public Relations
CollegeFashionista: What defines your style?
Tyrone Shivers: My style is a direct reflection of my mood most of the times. I really let it all show through what I wear.
CF: What is a must-have for the fall season for you and all Fashionistos?
TS: Being originally from up North where it’s usually very cool, I always have to have a variety of hoodies. Not too heavy for the warmer days, not too light for the colder days and I am perfect.
CF: Do you have any advice for anyone getting senioritis early?
TS: I suggest for students to just be comfortable but at the same time you must understand that people watch everything. Be mindful, but comfortable.
CF: Where is your favorite place to get graphic T-shirts?
TS: I don’t do too many major labels because I usually hate the fact that a lot of people may have the same shirt. Lately, I have been buying a lot of shirts from up and coming designers, like my best friends brand University.
CF: Any Fashionisto advice for other Fashionistos/as?
TS: Just be yourself. Don’t try to dress like someone else. What you like will be good on you, usually!
How To: Attaining this look is easy and fun. Dare to be different and look for great graphic T-shirt options from local designers or at department stores that’ll never fail you such as Urban Outfitters. Cargo pants can be found at Old Navy. Nike has an array of footwear options that are perfect for all looks! Look into colors because these days, the first glance is in that forward stride direction downward. Remember, someone is always watching. Why not give them something cool to look at Fashionistas/os?!
