Warm weather has arrived and the boys are stripping down from their Burberry jackets and scarves to board shorts and muscle T-shirts. Unfortunately, San Francisco weather has it backward. Springtime at the University of San Francisco means bundling up in your favorite pullover sweater and jeans. However, on occasion there are days when the weather is as fine and pleasant as the men’s outfits on campus. I approached this Fashionisto as he was walking to the library and insisted on taking his picture.
Three words which came to my mind when describing his style: simple yet sophisticated. What brought my attention to him the most was this Fashionisto’s trendy eyewear. Glasses have always been a classic item and the days where they are only for those with less than perfect vision no longer exist! Black framed, clear lens glasses, whether they are fake or prescription, are trending and everyone wants their hands on a pair. Wayfarer Ray-Ban glasses are the most popular brand among this style of eyewear, but this Fashionisto adopted a sophisticated and intelligent look by wearing glasses by Ralph Lauren. He complimented his glasses with a black pea coat by H&M and black jeans by Levi Brand Jeans. To avoid an overload of black pieces, this Fashionisto brightened his look with a beige, button-down shirt from Forever 21. His J.Crew tan suede shoes finalize his look with the ultimate pop of neutral color and draw attention to his footwear. A similar pair of the suede shoes that are pictured can be found here. The best part about his look is the versatility to wear it anywhere from a study group date to a night downtown with friends.
HINT: If you’re looking for a bolder approach, spice up your look with a splash of color or prints. A solid colored shirt or pants added to this outfit can add character to your overall look. Gap is a great place to find basic, sophisticated clothing at reasonable prices. If you’re a print fanatic, opt for a pinstripe print, or if you’re daring, a floral print to celebrate springtime. This spring season brings you many style jackets to choose from. If this Fashionisto chose a different jacket, such as a sporty jacket, there would be a different feel to his look. Changing up the style of the jacket can make a difference depending on the occasion, like choosing a classic blazer for more serious occasions.
