It seems like plain denim jeans and chinos are the go-to for many of our fellow male students. An alternative to these popular styles are corduroy pants that are still fashionable and are items that work well with basics. I spotted this Fashionisto with his pair of corduroy pants as part of his down-to-earth look.
This Fashionisto wears a simple basic white tee. The humble T-shirt is the best foundation to an outfit. It’s so simplistic that you could dress it up with different layers as this Fashionisto has done, or just keep it modest and wear it with plain jeans. Also apart of his outfit are a buttoned shirt in a lightly patterned blue color and a jacket, both from General Pants Co. As for accessories, he wears a blue cable-knitted beanie, black laced shoes, a gold earring and an underrated band of hair ties around the wrist.
And at last, we’ve arrived. The hero of this Fashionisto’s outfit: corduroy pants. This particular pair is in a light brown color and is rolled up at the hem; it’s neat and polished, contrasting against the laid-back, casual vibe he achieved through his mainly unbuttoned shirt. Corduroy have been recognized by leading designers Ralph Lauren and Gucci, and it has been utilized for some of their runway looks in the form of pants and tailored blazers.
Hint: Although corduroy is so ideal for winter weather, it would actually be a great wear for summer as well! Just team corduroy pants in a similar style and color as this Fashionisto’s pair with a simple, basic white tee and Ray-Ban Clubmaster for a foolproof outfit. A good pair of corduroy pants could transition seamlessly through the forth coming seasons.
