For plenty of previous seasons there has been a recurrence of stiff, tailored army-like influences. With his short crew haircut and compelling military color scheme, this Fashionisto is totally on trend with his ability to manipulate casual street-wear with a structured and more fitted look.
His lightly distressed khaki trousers are perfect for the fall season as the leaves change color, and are a wonderful and more formal substitution for denim. Even with the colder weather approaching, the shorter the pant the better, whether it be rolled, cuffed or pegged. The skinny-legged drainpipe trouser is timeless for a college student, can be dressed up with a collared shirt and blazer, or down with a patterned T-shirt or tank.
The idea of the pegged pants leg could be attributed to the return of the summery dock shoe, or as this Fashionisto demonstrates: the always-classy espadrille. As the ultimate comfort shoe, the espadrille is popular no matter where you travel, amongst men and women alike. You can buy them in every color under the sun. In keeping with the color coordination of his outfit, this Fashionisto replaces the typical harsh black military boot for a softer black slipper, and with this relaxes his whole ensemble.
Although the thick silver cross around his neck is worn for religious purposes, it ties in effortlessly with his attire, and actually brings to light another trend that has been seen in countless menswear stores this summer. From cross jewelry to crosses embroidered on T-shirts, the faint silver pendant echoes his light gray T-shirt, keeping the relationship between his beliefs and style subtle yet poignant.
Hint: When attempting to apply a current trend, try to do so in an understated manner by wearing colors that resemble the style, or maybe one item seen on the runway, but don’t overpower it with tons of different trends at once. Less is more, so do as this Fashionisto does and keep your outfits sharp and elegant.
