It is not everyday that you see a student sporting bright colored pants across campus. This was a lucky find for me, and the mustard color was begging me to acknowledge its presence. But it was not just the pants that grabbed my attention. From the immaculately layered sweater vest and button-up to the argyle print socks, the whole ensemble was absolutely stunning. To learn more about the Fashionisto who crafted this perfect outfit read the interview below.
Name: Zac Lundgren
CollegeFashionista: What inspired your outfit today?
Zac Lundgren: I think partly the weather and the winter. It was supposed to be a dismal, rainy cold day. So I thought I’d wear some mustard yellow pants with gray and navy black to brighten it up.
CF: Who is your style icon?
ZL: Probably John F. Kennedy.
CF: How would you describe your personal style?
ZL: I’d say a classic American, like early to mid-twentieth century. Keeping it old but still incorporating a little bit of modern stuff. But very classic.
CF: What are your favorite brands and/or designers?
ZL: Brooks Brothers. All Brooks Brothers…it doesn’t get any better! Brooks Brothers and Tommy Bahama.
How To: For a bold look just like this Fashionisto, go for bold elements in your outfit. If you want to make a huge statement, try a pair of bright colored pants like these from Brooks Brothers. Another way to make a statement is to go for a graphic shirt, like this floral print from Urban Outfitters. You could also make your focal point in the shoe like this galaxy print high top from ASOS. Keep in mind to balance these elements. If you chose a bold top, neutralize it with simple bottoms and vice versa.
