Let's Hear it for the Boys

Finals are just over the horizon, and many students are cashing in the time they would have spent picking out a stylish outfit for more study time. But just because you’re eager to hit the books, that doesn’t mean that you have to hit rock bottom and succumb to sweatpants. Not all students are willing to give up that precious period in the morning where they craft their look for the day. Take this Fashionisto for example — he prepares himself for finals week without sacrificing his style.

Today’s Fashionisto goes for a relaxed look that was surprisingly accented with signature pieces. He starts the base of his ensemble with a couple of classics: dark washed denim and a pair of black Chuck Taylor All-Stars. Although black Chucks are timeless, the trend has recently been moving toward white Chucks. These pieces provide a wonderful foundation for the rest of his outfit.

This Fashionisto focuses his outfit around his shirt. It is an off-white, silk, short-sleeve button-up that boosts a charged print. Silk is the perfect fabric for this time of year because it feels great on the skin and it keeps you cool. Quirky prints on men’s shirts have exploded in popularity. It you don’t believe me, check out this avant-garde print by Dolce&Gabbana. He concluded by accenting his shirt with a cap that matched it in color scheme: red, white and black. Finals week should be afraid of him because he’s dressed to kill.

Hint: Make sure you don’t overload your outfit with different prints. I assure you that it will get messy. Your focus doesn’t have to be a printed garment; instead your ensemble can revolve around a printed accessory. Try on this floral snapback or this patterned scarf and follow through with a simple outfit.
