In search of a Fashionisto this week I found that the college campus of Indiana University was at a standstill in fashion. Summer break invited cargo shorts, gym shorts and T-shirts. I was at a loss until I met this Fashionisto. He dressed to impress on his way to class, pairing maroon skinny jeans with an anchor print woven shirt and a cream jacket that balanced his look out. This look is casual enough for class and easy to make your own.
While his whole outfit was bought in China, there are a few stores here carrying clothing like his that can help you dress to impress. Nordstorm carries several varieties of woven shirts in several different patterns. But this blue anchor shirt pairs nicely with a great number of skinny jeans. To help balance the portions and colors, these maroon pants from Urban Outfitters really bring the color to the outfit. Also, during those chilly days you can search through a variety of jackets from Nordstrom to complete the look. To help center the outfit on the color of the pants, choose lighter colors like creme or beige. Now you too can look casual but dress to impress on campus this summer.
Hint: For those sunny days when you want to add some flare try adding some sunglasses. Urban Outfitters have a variety of glasses that help complete this outfit.
