Lately, everyone has been on a “vegan leather” product kick, but I must admit, I’m a leather lover. Genuine leather lasts longer, distresses beautifully and most importantly, it’s versatile. It can add a simple elegance, a rigid grunginess or both at once! Leather bags, shoes, headbands and leather embossed sunglasses are great add on pieces for any outfit, casual or dressy. So naturally, when I (the leather lover) ran into this Fashionisto, I admired the small accents first, then noticed the larger finds.
This Fashionisto not only caught my eye with the material of his accessories, like his sleek ALDO lace-ups, but also because of his bag which added a touch of rarity and personality to the look. His messenger bag from the Colombian leather company, Vitello, serves to be both fashion-forward and functional. After admiring the more extravagant pieces, I noticed even more jewels within this outfit. Take, for example, the red Members Only jacket. It’s a simple solid color, but a necessity for fall. Likewise, shorts are taking their final bow for the guys on this campus, so thicker pants, like these from H&M, are working their way onto the scene.
Hint: Whoever told you that “black and brown clash” was wrong. Wear black. Wear brown. Wear them together. Just make sure to utilize some type of balance. Make sure the two opposing colors have a purpose, and your look is ready to be admired!
