The time always comes in your college career when you need to actually wear clothes. I’m referring to clothes other than sweatpants and denim jeans. Every college is different, but here at American University, campus is filled with a large array of style. Daily, the boys on campus wear a T-shirt, jeans and loafers to class. Personally, I find it refreshing when you see someone who doesn’t fit into the norm on campus. I spotted this Fashionisto taking the look a step further in an ever-classic pant and blazer look, with little hints of color that impressed me even more.
This Fashionisto put together a fantastic look that is perfect for any job interview, class presentation or perhaps even a fancy dinner date! It can definitely be used as a day to night look. By wearing a button-up shirt underneath the blazer, it makes it easy to dress down the look for a night out on the town. The shirt, blazer and trousers are all bought from Zara.
As for bottoms, this Fashionisto wears black trousers with red stitching along the seam. Although subtle, the red stitching adds a small detail to the plain black trousers. The red detail is perhaps my favorite part of the look.
No to be forgotten, the blazer is a small pop of color. It is light blue with black and white pinstripes. A simple light blazer is perfect for the summer-to-fall transition. The blue adds some nice color to the whole outfit, so it is not so literally black and white.
The shoes complete this business casual look. A mistake many boys make is choosing to wear a pair of Sperry Top-Siders when wearing a business casual look similar to this Fashionisto. Sperry Top-Siders are not the best option to tie together the look. Instead, chose a pair of oxford shoes.
Hint: Look at the details on shirts, pants and shoes. The details can make all the difference to a look. They keep the look interesting and help to capture the eye. So, go out and be spotted!
