Let's Hear it for the Boys

Since 1848, the University of Wisconsin-Madison has been full of school spirit. As students, we look forward to representing our school and showing off our badger pride whenever we get the opportunity. In my opinion, the best way to express these proud feelings is with fashion!

When I saw this Fashionisto on the street, I was instantly drawn to his red jeans that expressed his love for the Wisconsin Badgers and his wonderful fashion sense. Colored denim has been a major trend for both females and males for the past few seasons. Jeans are such a great way to add a pop of color into an outfit while still staying casual.

Although his red pants are the main attraction in his ensemble, the button-up shirt, belt, jacket, sunglasses and shoes also add pizzazz. I love how this Fashionisto took an ordinary white button-up and made it look extremely polished by fastening all the buttons. He looks chic and more sophisticated than if he had worn a simple tee. He totally pulls the look together by matching his trendy black jacket with his belt and shoes.

Hint: While this Fashionisto looks fantastic in his hipster get-up, you can still wear colored pants in a more casual, simple way. If you are going for a more understated look, try a pair of blue or olive jeans (cuff your jeans like this Fashionisto if you are feeling extra stylish!). If you want to make a bold statement like this Fashionisto, wear red or purple jeans. With a pop of color on the bottom, it is important to keep the rest of the outfit relatively neutral so the color of the jeans really stands out. Try a classic tee or a sweater in a muted shaded that accentuates whatever hue you choose to wear. Add a cool jacket and a matching belt and voilá — you have an equally stylish and casual outfit!
