What do you do when you want to seamlessly transition from a formal event to a casual event without feeling awkward? Follow this Fashionisto’s lead. I caught him while he was on the run to an important conference. As I tagged along to chat with him, I found that he was trying to find that mix of formal and casual to blend into the social situations that he had planned for the day. As a college student myself, I understood the need to find an outfit that seemliness fits with every social situation on my agenda.
When you’re bogged down with multiple plans for the day, you too can look fashionable in every situation. This Fashionisto wore a plaid blue collared dress shirt under his gray sweater. He paired this collared shirt with his sweater because both his sweater and dress shirt had hints of green in them. The collared shirt had green lining and the sweater had a trim of green on the sleeves. When pairing different articles of clothing make sure to pay attention to details, like the trims of colors. By doing this you can match more articles of clothing together based on similar details. This type of color matching can help to add more options and make noticeable differences in your many looks.
To help him shift from one event to another, he mixes a casual and formal feel. His sweater adds that casual feel to the outfit but the collar helps him look formal for his event. He pairs his jeans with a brown belt from Ralph Lauren and brown dress shoes. By pairing these three items together it helps bring a new dynamic to his jeans.
Whether you’re on the run to class or have events you need to dress up for, remember these tips so you too can attend your plans for the day in style.
Hint: Try adding some accessories to your outfit, like a stylish watch so you can fashionably keep track of the events of your day.
