His staple is a black leather jacket, working pair of skinny jeans, and when spotted outside school grounds he’ll most likely be rocking a pair of bold sunglasses. Before meeting Fashionisto Jorge Salazar, I admired his edgy style from a distance. He often mixes soft, preppy pieces like a white and blue plaid button-down with something rugged like brown combat boots. Where Fashionisto Salazar draws inspiration for his consistently fresh outfits had been of interest so I caught up with him one sunny afternoon to learn more about the boy behind the cute clothes.
Name: Jorge Salazar
Major: Print Journalism
College Fashionista: Describe your style.
Jorge Salazar: I like to keep it clean. If you’re clean you look fresh. I also like to mix and match kooky patterns.
CF: Who’s your style inspiration?
CF: What are your three favorite items?
JS: My leather jacket, sunglasses, and skinny jeans.
How To: For a look like Salazar’s begin with a quarter-sleeve button down like this navy plaid shirt from American Eagle Outfitters. Next find a pair of dark denim skinny jeans. I’ve heard wonderful things from other Fashionistos about J.Crew’s vintage slim-fit jeans. For shoes, try a pair of leather chukka boots similar to J.Crew’s Sperry Top-Sider boots in dark wood. Or follow Salazar’s lead and be edgy in a pair of rugged combat boots like these black Urban Renewal boots available at Urban Outfitters.
