School is officially underway. An air of bittersweet fills classrooms around campus as students sit in their plastic desks, leftover summer watermelon still stuck in their wistful jaws. But a change of environment entices students to take that extra step and experiment in their wardrobe. A new school year can be the perfect opportunity to reinvent yourself. Whether you’re going to transform your look with a new hair-do or go for that inner punk you’ve always admired, take a risk.
Summer may be over, but this 90-degree weather has us all wishing we were still at the beach. This Fashionisto finds a happy medium through a little island appreciation. No novice to thrift stores, this cool cat says bargain hunting has often lead him to the best and most interesting pieces. Take for example the island fever button-up that he scored just the other week. This, ladies and gentlemen, is what we call ballin’ on a budget, the right way. He keeps the outfit understated with some green chino cut-offs and then hits you where it hurts with a killer pair of Nike high-tops. An electric blue statement piece can just about always add the perfect amount of spontaneity to any outfit. And of course, our faithful five panel hat that has been taking over the streets of Athens and those alike this summer.
Hint: Want to rock the floral button-up but worried that you might resemble your Uncle Frank who had a mid-life crisis and moved to Hawaii? Do it the right way with this shirt by Obey. Some electric blue for you here from Skulls. Wrap it up with some island inspired kicks like these ones by Vans.
