With finals and papers around the corner, we all need a little extra intellectual inspiration. This Fashionisto artfully translates his intellect to his wardrobe with this collegiate look.
This Fashionisto looks ready to hit the books with his oxford shirt, quarter-zip jacket and periwinkle chinos. I love how he exposes his collar over his jacket, giving off an understated preppy vibe. The warm chocolate brown hue of his jacket looks great when paired with his colorful chinos.
My favorite part of his preppy ensemble is his blue pants. By choosing to wear a pair of chinos in a fun color, this Fashionisto added a fun pop of color to his outfit. This Fashionisto finished off his outfit by exposing his classic suede boots. I love how he gathers the hem of the chinos above the boots to bring attention to his stylish footwear.
Hint: If you love the preppy, collegiate vibe of this Fashionisto’s look, try wearing similar pieces in brighter colors. Start with a similar pair of pants in a fun, bright hue like these red ones or these violet ones. Next, choose a button-up shirt in a neutral shade and button almost all of the buttons. Instead of a pullover jacket, try wearing a crewneck sweater for added warmth. Pop the collar of the shirt over the sweater to look extra collegiate. If you are in warmer weather, substitute the full-length chinos for a pair of shorts. This pair of Chubbies Shorts is perfect for a preppy ensemble on those warm summer days.
