With syllabus week behind us, the stress and excitement of yet another semester has officially begun. Besides learning from their classes, Fashionistos are really learning to appreciate the power of colored denim! Eye-popping pants have been a huge trend for the last year or so and it’s great to see guys taking part in it as well. Putting the standard jean on hold for a day is not only refreshing, but a great way to stand out in the crowd, especially on such a large campus.
This Fashionisto kept warm with multiple layers of basic long sleeve T-shirts available at tons of different stores in a range of prices. Shirts like these are total must-haves for all wardrobes. When layered like this, it allows you to wear a lighter jacket instead of the puffy coat that is an absolute everyday piece this time of year. He takes advantage of this by adding cool pieces like a multi-pocket jacket and fingerless gloves that give the outfit a little something extra. His kicks are Keds-inspired and are super popular all over campus. He tops it off with a gray beanie and classic thick-framed specs. The focal point of the ensemble are the burgundy pants. This color is absolutely on-trend and is commonly referred to as “oxblood” on fashion blogs and magazines. A pair like these are extremely versatile and can be mixed and matched with tons of different colored tops. Chic chino pants like these are circulating more and more into the male college scene and, hopefully, they will keep experimenting with these cool colors.
Hint: Have fun with it! Don’t be afraid to add these awesome colored pants and treat them as your new neutral. Choose carefully; these new trousers can be paired with a ton of pieces from your current wardrobe. In case you are weary of adding colored pants to your wardrobe, start off with a simple navy or pale blue pair. This won’t be a stretch from your typical jean but it will be a fantastic start to becoming more and more trendy on campus!
