It’s officially rush season, so that means break out your most preppy clothes and best man flirting. If you haven’t noticed yet, I like it when guys dress up. Rush is a lot of fun to watch. During dinner, my friends and I can people watch all the guys trek to the frat houses in their best button-downs and polos. Swoon.
Khaki pants are perfect for rushing. They are more dressy and professional than jeans, but they’re not over-the-top dressy. Khakis are also perfect because they’re so neutral and go with almost anything.
Experiment with fun colors and combinations, but don’t go too crazy. Take one vibrant color, like purple, and pair it with a more basic color, like brown. This Fashionisto pairs his blue button-down with a bright red sweater. Try to keep the two colors you pair in similar intensities. Don’t wear a pale yellow top with a bright red sweater because the red will drown out the yellow. If you wear a patterned top, match it with a sweater in the same colors.
You can really wear any type of shoes with this outfit. Sperry Top-Siders are casual but still sophisticated. The color of these darker Sperry Top-Siders looks so rich and chic, but you can never go wrong with a good pair of dress shoes.
