Springtime in New Jersey is a confusing mixture of snowfall and sunshine just hours in between one another. It’s that time of year when everyone is anxious to pull out their shorts and tank tops and put away their flannels, sweaters and parkas. It’s so refreshing to see my peers studying outside of our local cafe and wandering around aimlessly rather than hibernating inside of their dorm rooms. There is something so refreshing about the spring season, especially in regards to fashion.
As Coco Chanel once said: “It is the unseen, unforgettable, ultimate accessory of fashion that heralds your arrival and prolongs your departure.” Fashion, in my opinion, is far from what we see in fashion magazines or on television. Fashion is how you express yourself. It is the finishing touch to every individual’s desired persona. This Fashionisto caught my eye because of confidence and successful ability to show off his personality. His scarf said so much about him and his positive springtime attitude.
He took a basic black T-shirt and paired it with plain blue jeans. This casual look would be fashionable on it’s own; however, he adds a touch of his own personality by adding a matching patterned scarf. His scarf, however, is not the only accessory he wore. He also rocked a pair of black sunglasses. which were the cherry on top of this trendy ensemble.
Want to copy this look? Take any of your everyday basics that are already hanging in your closet: a solid-colored T-shirt, plain denim or even a pair of khaki shorts. Next, add a scarf, sunglasses or even better, both! Don’t go too crazy with the shoe selection. Mixing patterns is always admirable, but be careful not to clash too many colors in one outfit. This Fashionisto wore a pair of neutral sneakers that matched the colors in his scarf. Overall, this ensemble looks chic and effortless.
Hint: Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize. It can be so easy to spice up any outfit with just one small touch. Whether it’s a scarf, sunglasses, a hat or even high rise patterned socks, add a small touch of personality to your outfits this spring.
