I have had a style crush on this Fashionisto for the longest. Today being one of the more casual days I finally catch him, this Fashionisto has the “less is more” thing down pat. He always has such a classic style with a lot of classic pieces. From one of kind vintage-inspired watches to a one of a kind corduoury jacket, his style is very New York gentlemen meets VCU college student.
Name: Robert Sullivan
CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your style in three words?
Robert Sullivan: Keep it simple.
CF: Where do you get most of your style inspiration?
RS: My brother models internationally and I try to emulate some of his fashion sense.
CF: What is a staple in your closet?
RS: It's getting a lot dressier. More straight-laced than it used to be, I suppose.
CF: What do you think about VCU's fashion?
RS: I like it a lot! I'll see someone doing something interesting and I find myself looking at similar styles, colors, etc.
CF: What fall trends have you been into lately?
RS: I've never been much for accessories, but I'll try to incorporate a lot more scarves and watches or rings into what I'm doing.
CF: What are your favorite stores to shop?
RS: Mostly thrift stores but H&M is a sleek and cheap source. Nordstrom and Rag & Bone for the important stuff like shoes.
CF: What style advice to have for others?
RS: Keep it simple but don't be afraid to be adventurous. You can be eye-catching but extremely subtle at the same time. Try a lot of styles and designers — you'll be surprised by what you like or what looks good on you.
How To: To obtain this casual gentleman look, try shopping at Rag & Bones like this Fashionisto suggested. It screams his style, from their casual waistcoats to their boots. Also like this Fashionisto, try adding a spunky graphic T-shirt. Aside from Target's new launch of their Neiman Marcus line, they have also come up with a new impressive line of graphic T-shirts for men. Other than that, I would say to be a thrift shop junkie and you will find amazing one of kind vintage pieces as this Fashionisto does.
