FASHIONISTO SPOTLIGHT: Mike Gross

Fashionisto Spotlight

This week's Fashionisto embodies wilderness winsomeness with rugged textures and casual classics. Pairing a basic plaid flannel with dark, slim-fit denim, this Fashionisto makes all-American appeal look effortless. To loosen up the look, he shows some shirttail and pairs the ensemble with wool-detailed sneakers. He sticks to the staples in terms of every day dress. Typically pairing a cooly casual tee or button-down with a statement shoe or patterned short, this Fashionisto turns every day classics into a canvas for self-expression.

CollegeFashionista: If you had to whittle down your wardrobe to five items, what would they be?

Mike Gross: My flannel, desert boots, a pair of dark jeans, a white V-neck and some sort of J.Crew shorts.

CF: Where do you typically look for style inspiration?

MG: I guess I look to various blogs and brands. I look at J.Crew a lot.

CF: Is there a trend you've been wanting to try out this season?

MG: Dark brown loafers, brown shoes with black or a new watch I guess.

CF: Do you think that any aspects of your personality are reflected through the way that you dress?

MG: I would say so. I guess I'm sort of artsy so I try and get creative with some of the stuff I wear. I'd say my shoes definitely describe my personality too.

CF: Describe your style in three words.

MG: Casual, functional and earthy.

How To: Get this Fashionisto's look by pairing a heavy flannel with denim and statement shoes. Put a spin on the typical sneaker by opting for a two-toned or patterned pair.
