The color coral is consistently popular come the spring and summer seasons. As summer is fast approaching here at Emerson, students are preparing their wardrobes for the warmer months to come. And one way to prepare is by incorporating color! Brighter and bolder colors are popping up all over campus.
This week’s Fashionisto is certainly leads by example, sporting a pair of bright coral red chinos. A similar pair, and many color other options can be found here. Other popular spring colors like jade green or dusky blue could make for great statement pant colors as well. On the top, the Fashionisto goes for a simple chambray button down – a universal wardrobe must for men and women alike. Taking such a traditional piece, he makes it his own by cuffing the sleeves and unbuttoning the top few buttons to display his necklaces.
Sporting such bright coral pants was a bold choice, but it certainly paid off for this Fashionisto. Not everyone is willing to take such daring choices. If you want to work coral into your wardrobe, there are many ways to do so on a smaller scale. As an adaptation of this look, layer this basic tee under a chambray button down, and pair it with khakis and loafers.
Hint: Perhaps an underrated way of accessorizing a look is by adding a belt. A belt can really add to an ensemble and can also dictate the overall style of one. For example, we see that this Fashionisto has chosen a classic leather belt, which gives his look a more put together feel. But if he had chosen a black studded belt, that might not be the case!
