Let's Hear it for the Boys

The sun is out and the snow has finally melted, so I knew I needed to go outside to find a Fashionisto taking advantage of this winter oddity. Heading past our university park, I spotted this dude who was totally ready for spring!

Growing up I lived in Annapolis, so seeing this Fashionisto with some classic boat shoes and bright colored shorts made me feel right at home. Also with the amount of fraternities on this campus, the fratty look wasn’t too hard to find. We may be in Harrisonburg, Virginia but if we pretend hard enough we can dress like a Kennedy ready for their summer vacation!

So you want to dress more like a Kennedy? Recreate the look by checking out Ralph Lauren’s men’s summer collection. You’re sure to find the bright colors you’re looking for and look just as classy wearing them! Find some boat shoes and tortoise shell shades to top off the look. I once found a pair of perfectly preserved Sperry Top-Siders in a thrift store and had the most magical summer wearing them along the docks! You never know where you can find exactly what you’re looking for at a cheaper price so shop around! Because let’s face it—us college kids are most likely too broke for anything full price. Finding our favorite items on sale is a dream come true and makes wearing them a little more special. I know I love the bragging rights!

Hint: Boatless but still love the preppy look? Seriously, throw on a pair of boat shoes and some bright colors. It’s an easy way to look a little more dressed up on a casual day. Add a nautical watch and you may just believe you’re sailing like a Kennedy.
