LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Dress for Success

Let's Hear it for the Boys

When discussing the outfits of the Fashionistos here at Pitt, I often find myself talking about preparing for the “real world,” and how the guys on campus should learn to update their college wardrobe and get ready to wear a suit just about every day. While this applies to a lot of careers out there, certain companies have a more relaxed office uniform, allowing Fashionistos/as to have some versatility and fun with their work-wear. It is true, however, that as juniors and seniors our wardrobe should mature so we don’t go into corporate shock when we graduate. This Fashionisto shows us that paying attention to men’s fashion trends is important, and combining them with your business casual outfits is the perfect way to enter the adult world.

Rocking awesome accessories, this Fashionisto is the picture of trendy. He bundles up for the never ending chilly weather with a navy blue cargo jacket, brown leather gloves and a thin tan scarf — pieces like these will never go out of style, but are also really modern. His red striped button-down and blue skinny chinos make for the perfect outfit to wear into a business casual work environment. He shows some personality with a super stylish pair of blue suede oxfords. Lastly, he opts for a khaki backpack that creates a great color palette and pulls the whole look together.

Hint: When preparing for your future job, make sure to know exactly what the dress code is. Don’t just assume you have to wear a suit and tie every day! After learning about your company, have fun with your look by adding accessories like fun ties and scarves. Also, don’t be afraid to research the current trends that are hitting the runways. Staying up to date will add interest to your outfits and keep people asking you about your style.
