Let's Hear it for the Boys

If there is one thing that observing males’ attire on campus has taught me, it would definitely have to be that menswear is quite stagnant. In fact, it is extremely classic and if a man likes his jeans, he will keep buying that same style. Perhaps he will make a wild purchase and buy them in a new hue the next time. Stores, such as Nordstrom, are aware of this male tendency toward a classic and unchanging style, and they are sure to keep the same designers and styles throughout the span of at least five years. It’s really quite easy to please a male’s fashion taste, contrary to a Fashionista’s.

This Fashionisto’s look as a whole falls into the category of a simple yet fashionable school day outfit. His black denim is not too skinny, and not too loose. It’s the ideal straight leg pair that every true Fashionisto should have in his closet. This type of fit is ideal for cuffing, just as he does.This Fashionisto found this pair at H&M, along with his striped crew neck T-shirt. He sports your not-so-average striped T-shirt as the top half has wider stripes than the bottom. Although it’s a simple look, his denim backpack from American Apparel and thrifted red lace-up sneakers add the perfect pop to keep the look interesting and go against the conventional jeans and T-shirt combo. Denim button-downs have been a popular favorite for the past few seasons, but this Fashionisto explores the versatility of denim with this backpack. This Fashionisto do-gooder tops off his look by rocking a pair of bi-color Warby Parker specs.

Hint: Move away from the mundane with a popping pair of shoes and a stylish backpack. The Italian shoe brand Superga is perfect for achieving this look. Cole Haan colored oxfords made with Nike Air technology are practical and prime to take your look to the next level. Why carry a The North Face backpack, when you can sport a breezy canvas one from Herschel?
