Let’s face it: we’re all getting to that point in summer where we’re starting to care less about what we look like and more about how precious, little time is left before our fall semester begins. With all of the hullabaloo of dorm shopping, summer reading, and class preparation among other things, it’s often more than a little difficult to put effort into coordinating your clothing options for the day. However, making yourself look casual as well as polished is not the daunting task that it may seem like when so many other things are weighing on your mind.
This Fashionisto has created a look that seems effortless but also expresses his personal style. The American flag themed tank top shows off his patriotic side while actually being a versatile addition to any wardrobe. While the uniqueness of the screen print adds character, the thin cotton material of the shirt allows for ultimate comfort and breathability in the peak of summer heat.
The seafoam green shade of his chino shorts contrasts the blue of his shirt, while the pair also adds a difference in clothing character as a whole. Even though these shorts have been paired with a more casual top, they can also complement any button-down or dressier style shirt for a more formal look for going out on the town or attending an important meeting. Pastel dyed shorts have the adaptability to make any effortless outfit look like it has been masterfully put together.
As with any ensemble, the shoes and accessories are what tie it all together. This stylish guy decided to sport Chaco sandals that again highlight the relaxed look that he’s going for while actually being useful should he decide to venture out for a mountain trip or swim in the local quarry. He adds a thick leather belt and a pair of aviator sunglasses, and his outfit has officially equipped him for an outing to the park, the mall or just downtown, giving him a unique sense of coolness and effortlessness.
Hint: Sometimes a belt can cinch that certain look you’re going for, no matter the occasion. Adding a thick belt to khakis or a dark pair of jeans can make a world of difference in defining your outfit. If you suddenly find yourself in need of more fancy attire, you can always cheat by tucking your shirt into whatever pants or shorts you’re wearing, showing off that nice leather belt that you’ve been waiting to display.
