Spotted: LIM College boy pulling off a classic twist on the schoolboy blazer. For all you Gossip Girl fans, we know that Blair, Serena, Chuck, Nate and Dan did not always follow the dress code. They all added a twist to their school uniforms and made it fashionable and trendy.
No Upper East Sider would be caught dead in the same school uniform like everyone else. This Fashionisto stood out on the streets and caught my eye with his trendy schoolboy look
Blazers are a key piece in anyone’s wardrobe. They can be dressy or casual. Usually a blazer is seen in a school uniform jacket or an office environment. Today blazers are seen as a fashion statement. This Fashionisto kept his color combination a simple black and white. This allows for more intricate pieces, like his net sweater he layered with. He wore crisp white pieces underneath that. The button-down shirt underneath the net sweater creates a trendier version of the preppy layered look. He also wore white pants paired with silver oxford shoes. His glasses also add a “geek-chic” look to his outfit, which completes the schoolboy look. He accessorized with a springy backpack and a light silver chain necklace. This added a pop to his black and white outfit.
Take some inspiration from this Fashionisto and try to recreate the school uniform look. If you don’t already have a blazer, go out and buy one ASAP!
Hint: When wearing a blazer casually, try to wear it with a pair of jeans and a T-shirt. When wearing it for an interview or business related reason, wear it with dress pants and a tie.
