LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Classic Converse

Let's Hear it for the Boys

Every now and then I like to see Fashionisto’s on campus sporting a classic look. This Fashionisto is representing a classic American style with a little hipster twist. He looks casual and chill and ready to take on any class or activity of the day.

This Fashionisto is wearing distressed denim jeans, a blue plaid button-up shirt with rolled up sleeves and one of my favorite pairs of shoes, converse!  Never underestimate the power of pair of Chuck Taylor classic Converse. Not only have Converse proven to have never gone out of style, but also I like to think in the past couple of seasons they have been making a full on comeback. Don’t you love it when you’re favorite vintage accessory comes back into style?

When deciding on which Converse to buy I would always suggest the classic high-tops. They look super edgy and great with shorts and maybe a high sock and can also be camouflaged under jeans like how they are worn on this Fashionisto. One pair of shoes can go a long way. Converse can be worn all summer and really make almost any look a little extra cool and vintage. I think how this Fashionisto keeps it simple while also looks confident with his black and clear rimmed frames. If you are into the hipster look I would definitely say these frames from Urban Outfitters are a great accessory choice for your daily outfit. These rimmed frames sort of remind me of Ray-Bans and are eye-catching.

Hint: Once you have found the perfect Converse you want to find a flannel that you can pair with a bunch of different looks. This flannel also from Urban Outfitters was one of my favorites. I like how it looks vintage and distressed, it definitely has a laid back vibe which is a nice touch for throwing on over T-shirts. The washed out vintage flannel look is perfect paired with Converse to achieve that classic American boy style. Just remember all it takes is a pair of Converse and a great flannel to achieve the perfect laid-back look.
