Looking good while trekking to class in the heat can be a daunting task, but you don’t have to slum it in boring gym shorts. This Fashionisto makes cruising across campus look effortless by opting for a bright short sleeve button-up, lightweight khakis and some retro Nikes.
As a person who groans at the sight of pajama pants being worn to class, I can always appreciate a man who puts some thought into his outfit. Comfort plays a major factor in what most guys wear to school, which is why college campuses tend to be a sea of guys in ratty basketball shorts and plain white T-shirts. This Fashionisto demonstrates personal style without compromising comfort.
A key component to staying comfortable while looking cool is light colors. This baby blue Polo Ralph Lauren seersucker button-up brings classic elements to the table without overdoing it. The comfortable cotton fabric comes in many different colors and goes well with chinos or even jeans.
This outfit can easily be dressed up with a pair of Sperry Top-Sider boat shoes for a preppy take, but this Fashionisto gives his ensemble an old school look by adding some vintage running Nikes. His tailored khakis slim down the look and accentuate his lean figure by removing unnecessary fabric.
Hint: Instead of shelling out more cash for new slim-fitting pants, take the ones you already own to your local tailor for a cheap upgrade to your wardrobe. Save your money for a crewneck sweater that you can pair with your short sleeve button-up as the weather gets cooler. You can put it on or take it off as the weather fluctuates.
