Let's Hear it for the Boys

The art of layering is a skill worth mastering at any Midwest campus. From lecture halls and libraries to game days and nights out, knowing how to appear stylish while maintaining functional versatility is key to any successful look. This Fashionisto seems to know just how to layer up with a style that is laid back and cool for a productive afternoon at the library.

A T-shirt, hoodie, flannel and a vest may sound like a lot, but all together they add dimension and work well to highlight different aspects of each piece that complement one another for great visual interest. Making sure that the hood lays flat over both open collars of the vest and button-down allow for all of the layers to be subtly featured around the neckline and helps to minimize fabric bulk, keeping the look clean and put-together. The overall color scheme of cool tones with various blues and greens is allowing for each piece to blend well into the next for a trendy and cohesive esthetic with intentional uniformity.

Through an eye-catching accent of red, this Fashionisto brings a fun athletic appeal to the outfit with a great pair of Nike kicks. Clean and polished, the shoes are comfortable for trekking across campus and right on trend. He may not even know it but a wave of blue and endless sport references are the talk of the town throughout all of 2014 men’s fashion trend reports. This season’s fashion week had designers such as James Long, Alexander Wang, Gucci and Kris Van Assche exhibiting limitless athletic themes for sporty chic collections.

Bringing this trend off of the international runways and onto the streets of Madison, this Fashionisto subtly reflects this latest style in a noteworthy way and rocks his look with easy confidence. His fashion sense is evident without being overwhelming and keeps his look current and memorable.

Hint: Don’t forget about accessories when putting your outfit together! This Fashionisto is rocking a sleek black watch that is not only practical but also makes his look more polished and put together. A great watch is something every Fashionisto should wear on a regular basis to complete every look with ease.
