LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Not Your Standard Backpack

Let's Hear it for the Boys

As the semester is winding down, the standard backpack can start to get boring. Why not change it up? This week’s Fashionisto does just that. By swapping a standard backpack with this messenger bag, he creates a different look. This simple messenger bag is just the right size for heading off to class. Being gray, the bag is easy to pair with anything.

When it comes to early classes, it is hard to resist sweatpants and sweatshirt, especially on these cold days. Again, our Fashionisto is able to demonstrate how to fix this. He sports a flannel and denim jeans, a simple and classic look. As a woven fabric made usually with wool, flannel has a long history in fashion. We all can associate flannel with different things: lumberjacks, ’90s grunge or the current hipster style. Most importantly, flannel shirts have the to keep you warm with its soft brushed wool surface.

Vans are the perfect shoe to keep you comfortable during the day. The checked print on this pair our Fashionisto wears is unique and adds personality to his look. The slip on feature of these shoes is another added bonus, making them easy to throw on as he rushes off to class.

Comfort and convenience are two of the most important things when getting ready for the day. This Fashionisto was able to achieve this while also switching out a standard backpack for a messenger bag.

Hint: Messenger bags are a great bag to carry with you to class. This Fashionisto used a casual style, but you can also make the choice of using a nice leather or suede bag. Making this alternative choice can easily dress up your look.
