I’m back in Charlottesville, and we have had our fair share of heat, humidity and rain! I found this Fashionisto after a nice summer shower, and somehow he evidently managed to stay out of the rain and retain his clean-kept look. He is not only ready for his summer classes, but he is also ready for the closest fraternity day party.
He is adorned in colorful plaid shorts with an un-tucked, white Ralph Lauren button-down which lends a summer vibe, but at the same time the solid colored shirt helps him avoid too much going on. To add to his smart, University boy look, he has a pen tucked neatly into his shirt – you never know when you might have to jot something down! To add to his outfit, he’s wearing vintage Clubmaster Ray-Ban sunglasses, which are less common that the usual wayfarers but give a timelessness to his outfit. Finally, he wears a pair of leather flip flops that keep his look comfortable. I love that his attire is both timeless and basic and that his great smile shows that he is obviously proud of his style.
Hint: To get his fun, summery and smart look, find a pair of patched shorts. Then, find a solid color button-down shirt that is in the same color scheme as the shorts since the patched shorts are already quite “busy”. Also, go for the unique vintage sunglasses, which help keep the look timeless. And for shoes, you can wear leather flip flops like his, or you can wear traditional Sperry Top-Sider boat shoes.
