Incorporating quirky pieces into any outfit can be difficult. After all, when wearing an offbeat accessory, there is a fine line between appearing endearing yet fashionable, and looking a bit odd or cheesy. That being said, who ever thought it’s impossible to chicly show off one’s love for a cartoon character through clothing obviously has not see this week’s Fashionisto. In fact, what initially caught my eye about our Fashionisto was his ability to rock a vintage-inspired Mickey Mouse watch.
What allows our Fashionisto to look stylish while having the face of a beloved cartoon character on his wrist is the fact that the rest of his outfit is somewhat simplistic. As the temperatures in San Luis Obispo are relatively warm, this Fashionisto opts for lightweight fabrics and three-quarter length sleeves. His bright and casual outfit consists of a green baseball T-shirt and light-washed skinny jeans. Everything about this sporty ensemble reads as relaxed and effortless. Additionally, this outfit is completely versatile as it can be worn in either a sports bar or at study session in the library.
This Fashionisto finishes off his outfit not only with fabulous tortoise shell glasses, but also dark teal Vans. While these shoes are not the exact color as our Fashionisto’s baseball T-shirt, they are in the same color scheme. This enables these Vans to tie the outfit together without making our Fashionisto look like he’s trying too hard.
Hint: When shopping for quirky accessories, try to keep an eye out for something small, yet noticeable. Wearing interesting pieces can be an excellent conversation starter. Additionally, baseball T-shirts are a wonderful way to feel comfortable while still looking fashionable. Further, wearing clothing items in a similar, but not exact, color is a perfect way to tie an outfit together without looking too “matchy matchy.”
