The end of the semester is finally here! Classes have ended, exams are over and the weather is changing. Living in the Midwest means adapting to every day seasonal changes, so even though most of us want to be in shorts and tanks, this Fashionisto stays stylish in a weather friendly outfit, ready to enjoy his break.
Such a relaxed atmosphere calls for a relaxed look. This guy enjoys his post-exam days in casual yet fashionable clothes. He is sporting basic khakis, a staple in any man’s wardrobe, no matter the season. Khakis have become an essential and versatile item to any closet. They can be paired with any top, from a T-shirt, to a flannel to a classic button-up. He paired his kahkis with a classic blue plaid button-up. This combination creates a timeless look that you can’t go wrong with.
These dark tan khakis can also be dressed up or down. This Fashionisto dresses them down by choosing a fun color and pairing them with casual shoes. I love neutrals for spring transitions, they’re the easiest way to add some light to your dark pieces.
This Fashionisto’s choice in footwear is a popular one for the male student. Boat shoes are destined to be around for some time, especially on a college campus. Uncomplicated and classic, this is one of the most prominent styles. Wear them with rolled up trousers for that casual vibe, or freshen up your workwear with a pair in classic navy, an easy way to look effortlessly cool.
Hint: If the weather is chilly, it looks a little ridiculous (not to mention impractical) to be flashing your bare ankles. Since you are presumably wearing boat shoes for their style instead of their function, I would recommend that your socks be fun and interesting.If you are going to make a statement and wear your boat shoes with socks, then go all the way and really make one!
