Every now and then, I find myself looking through men’s fashion magazines or scrolling through The Well Dressed Man and marvel at how creative menswear can get with a few basics and some accessories here and there. A huge takeaway I’ve been able to receive from admiring men’s fashion is the ability to streamline an outfit and show off your personal style through simple yet interesting pieces that make a stylish impact. This week’s Fashionisto’s motto is just that: dressing casually while making an impression.
Name: Fykeson Sarmiento
CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing today?
Fykeson Sarmiento: Well, I'm wearing a button-down shirt from Lucky Brand, 7 for All Mankind jeans, Sperry Top-Siders and a Bulova watch to top off my outfit.
CF: Where are some your favorite places to shop?
FS: I like clothing that has a preppy feel to it, so some of my favorite places to shop are J.Crew, Banana Republic and Gap.
CF: How would you characterize your style?
FS: Overall, I think my style is very casual. I like to dress to make an impression, but without looking like I tried too hard.
CF: Where do you normally get your style inspiration?
FS: I base my style from what I see around me, so my style comes from a lot of different inspirations. I try to pick clothes that make me look like “Fykeson”. I like to keep my look simple and wear clothes that I gravitate towards, not necessarily ones that are trendy.
How To: Like this week’s Fashionisto, grab a pair of Sperry Top-Siders you can wear casually with these jeans from Banana Republic. Tuck in this check button-down and complete your relaxed suave look with three accessories every gentleman should have in his arsenal: a watch, a belt and a bowtie.
