Do you ever wake up in the morning and feel like today is the day you need to actually dress up for school? Sweatpants just aren’t cutting it for you and you think it is appropriate to wear a nice shirt and your favorite wingtips. Trust me, I get these thoughts all the time when I feel like I really want to look nice, regardless if I have work to go to after classes. It’s nice to know that I’m not the only one who feels this way some days.
I came across this Fashionisto on my way to class and I was really impressed over his outfit that I almost forgot to ask him if I could write an article about him. He was dressed so nicely, yet it was still appropriate for college.
This Fashionisto wore a simple spread collar shirt, which can be bought at stores like Banana Republic or J.Crew, with a nice navy and red striped tie. You can’t go wrong with a simple tie. On the bottom, he wore tan chinos with brown wingtips with baby blue accents, similar to shoes from Cole Haan. As for accessories, he wore a nice silver and gold accented watch, along with bracelets with sentimental value and a brown leather rucksack. Altogether, the outfit is amazing.
Hint: If you’re afraid of messing with striped ties, test the waters with solid ties before you can try something a little more complicated. Also, layering is key for this season, so a nice beige trench coat would look awesome with this.
