Although I am personally the farthest thing from prepster, I can’t help but admire the look of those Southern college boys. The Southern gentleman is channeled through the sea of Vineyard Vines button-downs and Southern Tide colored shorts on campus, and believe me, it’s an attractive sight. Back-to-school means back to reality, and a well-dressed student portrays the determination for success and self-respect. Who wouldn’t be attracted to that?
This Fashionisto was spotted between classes boasting a sky blue, lightweight sport shirt perfect for the transition from warm to cool weather paired with salmon colored shorts. The two colors complement the look without overwhelming the eye. Everyday boat shoes are perfect for a long day of walking to and from classes. Black frames protect our Fashionisto’s eyes from the Southern sun, as well as give off a very sophisticated vibe while walking on campus. He keeps his schedule in check with a silver mid-sized watch, the perfect accessory for a stylish man on the go. Altogether, this casual prepster is ready to turn heads for a day of classes.
Hint: With fall just around the corner, both pieces can be utilized as the temperatures drop. The faded red tone of the shorts bring out the Autumn color palette, perfect for those mid-60 degree afternoons; just be prepared to add a pullover or quarter zip sweater to the mix for the cool breezes. A button-down goes a long way, lasting from season to season. Pair it with pants or throw another layer over it as the season progresses into cooler temperatures. Finally, consider a classic watch. When spotted, the accessory speaks for the responsible gentleman with appreciation for finer apparel.
