February has now arrived and what better way to start the month than with a fresh look? A hip hop urban style look is the perfect way to head to class while being comfortable and fashionably aware. Hip hop fashion primarily originated in the late ’80s and throughout the ’90s. This urban style made a fashion statement throughout time simply because it is bold, unique and versatile. I love the hip hop look simply because it does not require much time to put together, which is very convenient for college students (we barely have time to breathe). Urban fashion tends to stray away from the classic winter look and can make a fashion statement from a distance. Urban hip hop fashion has managed to thrive and develop throughout time and will always remain in the fashion world.
This Fashionisto is rocking a camouflage button-down shirt with a pair of dark denim jeans. I love the camouflage shirt because you can wear it with anything (and I mean anything). Camouflage is the perfect print because of its versatility and bold statement. Button-down shirts are perfect for this February weather. It gets chilly outside but a few days out of the month there is no need for a heavy coat or jacket (Knoxville weather gets a bit confusing). The Fashionisto is also wearing a pair of square black glasses to add to his look. Glasses can be an excellent way of accessorizing if you have may have bad eye sight or just wearing them for fashion.
I absolutely love sneakers! Being a college student, especially at Rocky Top, your feet tend to start hurting with flat shoes. It can be very difficult to navigate throughout campus without the right pair of shoes. This Fashionisto is rocking a pair of Air Jordan shoes entitled “Green Glow.”These sneakers are perfect simply because they are so eye catching with color. I always believe that shoes tie your look together and can say a lot about a person’s personality. Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak!
Hint: Prints allow your look to be more daring and shines a light on your confidence! Confidence will always be key to fashion. With confidence, a person can pull off almost any look. Prints also allow your outfit to stand out rather than the commonly known trends. Be fearless and never be afraid to take risk! Life is too short to blend in. By doing this, you will be a trendsetter on campus.
