The Hotlanta summer heat is finally taking full effect, thus forcing us to sink deeper into the corners of our homes, idolizing the sweet, sweet air conditioning. Mandatory daily visits to the pool down the block often leave me with photo opportunities that would make the rest of the Style Gurus jealous. This week as I was making the grueling ten minute journey, SPF 50 and a hat that rivaled those at the Kentucky Derby in hand, my stride slowed from that of a work horse to an abrupt halt. You see, the style gods were smiling in that moment. I quickly abandoned all thoughts involving margaritas, tan lines and pool volleyball and headed straight for my victim.
This week’s Fashionisto comes to us from Cologne, Germany. Gracing Athens for a mere three weeks as he rekindles his relationship with some old hockey buddies, this suave cat does anything but blend in with the rest of the Columbia shirts that frequent campus. Leather boots in the summer? You dare devil, you. Distressed jeans and a Boom Bap v-neck create an effortlessly cool get-up that hints to the land of poets and thinkers. I could lie and say that I didn’t love his Persol sunglasses and manly arm party, but it just wouldn’t feel right.
This summer doesn’t have to be all about jorts, Chacos and that T-shirt you caught at the basketball game last semester. Spice things up by following this Fashionisto’s lead and splurge on a unique graphic T-shirt that will leave all pool-goers drooling.
