As the weather continues to get warmer and students become distracted by summer plans and exciting new internships, it become apparent that finals week is nearing. The one torturous week that separates college students from a warm summer of fun in the sun. It also happens to be the same week that many of my colleagues choose to wear the same pair of sweatpants five days in a row. But in my opinion, if you look good, you’ll feel good and head-to-toe loungewear just doesn’t do the job. So, I applaud those of you who have managed to still put together and outfit that shows both style and function, even in during the most stressful time of the year.
This week’s Fashionisto definitely did not settle for what was left at the bottom of his hamper. He went all out with an outfit that hits on a few key trends and styled his look to menswear perfection. Starting with a bold graphic tank top, this Fashionisto caught my eye by pairing his shark-graphic tank with a button-down chambray shirt, a trend seen recently in both men’s and women’s fashion. He paired this trendy combo with a pair of dark wash denim and finished the look with gray canvas shoes. The color palette for this look is pure genius, subtle yet eye-catching and extremely pleasing to look at. By pulling most of the colors from the graphic of his tank top, he was able to create an outfit that was well coordinated and made the shark graphic the focal point of the look. The colors all work well together, therefore giving the ensemble great balance and flow. Overall, he aced it.
So this week, don’t be a fashion a failure. End your year in style by rocking a few fashionable pieces and coordinate the rest to work. By choosing one key piece to show off and pairing it with pieces that compliment it, your look will be visually pleasing and make you feel ready for whatever exams are coming your way.
Hint: As opposed to a graphic, try rocking one patterned piece. Pick a few colors from the pattern and use those for the other pieces within the look. It will be eye-catching while still look put-together!
