During finals week, staying in style is an extremely difficult accomplishment especially at our campus, University of Pittsburgh. While students rush to their exam classrooms with their last minute coffee dose in hand decked out in sweatshirts and sweatpants, it is almost impossible to spot anyone willing to take that small extra step in putting an outfit together that isn’t too baggy or looks like someone just rolled out of bed.
This Fashionisto, however, stays comfortable, but trendy during this stressful week by adding his own quirk to his laid-back outfit. He wears a dark pink graphic T-shirt and somewhat distressed jeans, which give a certain flair to his casual outfit. Adding gray adidas sneakers, he is ready for a long day of studying and acing his finals. Since he wears just a T-shirt and jeans, this Fashionisto is the perfect example of a way college students can use simple outfit concepts and play around with basic pieces to create the right look. This Fashionisto makes his casual outfit effortlessly stand out through his T-shirt color choice that is balanced out with trendy sneakers. My favorite aspect of his outfit, however, are his jeans with a distinct wash that adds the most character and style to such a plain look. Therefore, boys, when deciding on what to wear for finals week, follow this Fashionisto’s example in his lesson of personal style. There is still a way to get dressed quickly in the morning in a casual, comfortable way while still looking put together and stylish.
Hint: On a regular day, there are many ways to spruce up a casual T-shirt and jeans look by adding different pieces into your own personal style. For example, to grunge up the outfit, you can add a leather moto jacket and combat boots. In addition, if you want to prep it up a bit, put on a blazer and wear some desert boots.
