The fashion industry in the twenty-first century has made long strides in the past half-century — companies are more focused on environmentally-friendly resources, advertising is increasingly paperless and even consumers are joining in on feel-good fashion. Showing your style can be a fun, rewarding experience and it feels ten tons better when you’re representing a cause close to your heart. Charity has a special place in the fashion world and your fall semester wardrobe!
To show your giving personality and sense of style in one outfit, it’s key to keep the focus on the philanthropic piece you want to showcase. Our Fashionisto proudly sported his Mentors in Violence Prevention International Conference T-shirt by pairing it with cool, casual fabrics. From the H&M jeans and sweatshirt to the graphic black Nikes, his choices are a prime example of effortless street style while playing up the spirit of giving back.
Outfits like this are perfect for those Monday mornings after you’ve been cramming all night — soft fabrics and silhouettes have you looking refreshed and ready to succeed! To hold his outfit together, our Fashionisto added in a belt from American Eagle. That attention to the little details and accessories are what makes a simple outfit like this truly your style!
Hint: Charitable T-shirts often come in random colors and sizes too large. How do you make a graphic T-shirt in these conditions work? Keep the colors of your other pieces similar like this Fashionisto, who paired his navy one with dark wash denim and heather gray hoodie. Having an elongated t-shirt is fine, but use your mirror to see just where it hits your body. If it reaches longer than your middle finger, reserve it for pajamas!
