Fashionisto Spotlight

This Fashionisto was headed to an afternoon class, and his outfit is just perfect for fall. Autumn can be an especially difficult season to dress for, because one has to be prepared for temperatures that dip into freezing but also approach 70, all in the same day! His perfectly executed layers show how you can be prepared regardless of the temperature for a full day on campus.

Name: Nathaniel Weathersby
Year: Junior
Major: Integrated Marketing Communications

CollegeFashionista: Where do you usually shop?
Nathaniel Weathersby: I usually shop online at Asos or Yesstyle. Offline, it has to be JC Penny and Belk. Not many places sell fashionable [by my standard] clothes for men with small frames.

CF: How would you define your personal style?
NW: I tend to purchase things that catch the eye and what you wouldn't normally see on the southern male. If I had to give it a label it would be Hipster-Chic. Without the pretension that comes with “hipster.”

CF: What item do you think every man should have in his closet?
NW: A nice pair of shoes. No boat shoes or sneakers, dress shoes or tennis shoes. I mean, a pair of shoes that look like they were designed more for the progression of fashion than the upholding of a trend.

CF: Where is your favorite place to shop?
NW: Online. You can find almost anything. Also, you can import things!

CF: What inspires you?
NW: Movies and shows such as Ugly Betty and Doctor Who, where everyone looks fabulous. And the odd graduate student who looks like they just flew in from LA or New York.

CF: What are you looking forward to wearing this winter?
NW: Scarves! I've never really worn them before and can't wait to see what I can find and pull off.

How To: Nate’s outfit is comfortably casual, and can more than likely be re-created with many different pieces that you already own. Converse All Stars are an item that I’ve mentioned time and time again, mainly because they are a hugely popular item here on campus. A neutral jacket can be added over any outfit to give an element of style. Add a colorful (and comfy!) shirt, and you’re ready for the day.
