As the first day of classes approaches, students are filtering back into the city, leaving their summer duds behind and trading their swimsuits for fashion that is sure to impress on the first day of school. While many New Yorkers haven’t set aside their summer apparel completely – let us not forget it is still in the 70’s here – this fashion-forward student boldly championed the heat and donned this sleek and stylish outfit. So maybe you’re not quite ready to rock the long sleeve, that’s okay too! But let’s give this man a hand and take notice of his Fall-ready fashion choices.
This Fashionisto paired together a blue and white pinstriped button-down with a pair of jet black slim-cut pants, adding a couple additional pops of color by sporting a thin red tie and matching Chuck Taylors—combining fashion with functionality. He adds to his look with some cool accessories —creating a look that works for meeting with friends in the park, but also promises to impress his classmates this September.
Finding ways to stay stylish while juggling the many commitments of the average NYU college student can be difficult, but this student makes it look effortless. My favorite aspect of this outfit isn’t necessarily his keen eye for fashion, it is that he makes this look (which incorporates relatively basic pieces) his own, revealing his personality while sporting an undeniable self-assuredness. And trust me, the most flattering accessory a man can wear is definitely confidence.
Hint: It’s all about the arrangement. You can take your basic garments, add pops of color, accessories, and an attitude to match, and now you’ve got a unique look that shows your personal style. Also don’t be afraid to make bold statements with your clothing choices. The fashion industry loves keeping us on our toes, why shouldn’t we do the same? And finally, if you’re a busy student, wear something versatile to make your transition from class to your internship seamless and stress-free.
