College boys parading around campus tend to stick to the general rule that casual comfort comes before style, especially in the cooler weather. It is rare to see someone on campus who can perfectly mesh the two together. But, just as I had given up hope this put together young Fashionisto walked by me on the quad looking ever so comfortable but had just enough style. Immediately I had to stop him for his plaid shirt, which is stated on Fashion One News as the “hot trend” this fashion month. Now did this Fashionisto know he was spot on? Maybe. Maybe not. But I sure as heck knew and now he does too!
He is seen here wearing a plaid button-down shirt similar to this one from American Eagle Outfitters. The cut and print of this shirt is stylish while the cotton-blend material keeps him comfortable all day going from class to class, rather than feeling like he’s preparing to go to a formal event. His khaki colored pants are once again keeping with the overall trend of the outfit which brings comfort and style together. Many brands have bottoms in this color for the fall for men, but Levi Brand Jeans are a long lasting jean that you can always count on.
This Fashionisto was a minimalist in the accessories department sticking to his basics. He added a lace-up brown shoe which gave his look a finished appearance and was likely a practical option. You can go with multiple shoe styles to suit this outfit, such as a boat shoe like these or a brown suede lace-up boot for men like these. Finally, this Fashionisto finished his outfit off with a backwards tan cap. You can find hats like this in many places, but this one from Tommy Hilfiger perfectly suites this outfit!
Hint: Not one for plaid? Try another print on your button-down like this one with polka-dots! There are so many types of prints available so go big and go bold!
