Summer school is finally finished, and yet everyone is now ready to gear up for the real school year! At UVA, we are all so ready to be back in Charlottesville to meet back up with the friends we have missed over the summer. With this excitement in mind, the idea of the looming classes is not too daunting.
This Fashionisto seems to be ready for the upcoming school year. He has the UVA preppy look, but he pairs it with an athletic and comfortable feel. He is wearing a red and navy blue striped Brooks Brothers polo with khaki shorts. Also, I noticed his antique watch and loved it! The white face is adorned with roman numerals and has a gold surrounding, and its brown leather band is so well worn that the yellow underneath is showing – but that just adds to the watch’s personality! Then, for the more athletic and functional aspect of his outfit, he’s sporting blue and gray Asics running shoes with black Nike high socks.
Hint: How do you get an understated but still preppy look? It is totally acceptable to have the traditional Brooks Brothers preppy look and then make it more athletic like he does. So, to do that, you can pair a Ralph Lauren or Brooks Brothers polo or button-down with basic khaki shorts or pants. But instead of the usual boat shoes or dress shoes to finish, go with comfortable running shoes like he does! Finally, you can choose a preppy accessory like his watch, or a more athletic option – a Timex watch.
