As the semester gets underway and classes pick up, the glimmer and novelty of the new school year has begun to fade. Consequently, the desire to dress to impress has fallen secondary to homework. That’s why it was such a breath of fresh air to see this Fashionisto out, dressed casually but stylishly in classic pieces.
His look comprises a classic crewneck T-shirt from Polo Ralph Lauren and some flat-front prep length khaki shorts. The Fashionisto keeps his look simple and laid-back by wearing leather flip flops and Ray-Bans.
My favorite part of the look is the pop of color in his T-shirt. This shade of blue has continued to grow in popularity and is becoming a trend in itself. It gives a stylish, modern twist to his classic outfit. It’s a fun and versatile piece that should be a staple in every Fashionisto’s closet.
Every Monday, when I roll out of bed for my 8:30 class, I am confronted with the same decision everyone else faces: what should I wear today? It can be incredibly hard to opt for something stylish over something super comfy albeit unfashionable. That is when classic and simple looks like this come in handy. With an outfit like this, just when you’re about to reach for those gym shorts, you can chose an equally simple alternative instead and look fashionable.
Hint: This is a great casual look, but its fundamental pieces are very versatile. It is an easy outfit to upgrade for a more dressed up, accomplished look by swapping the flip flops out for Sperry Top-Siders. As we transition into fall, trade the shorts for some slim cut jeans.
