Let's Hear it for the Boys

As school reopened here at UF, students came dressed to impress to kick off the spring semester. In the midst of all the well-dressed students, I spotted this Fashionisto in a heavily populated area on campus near library west. He is rocking a plain white tee layered underneath a red and white varsity jacket. To accompany his trendy jacket, he is also sporting red and white Vans and a pair of vintage John Lennon inspired sunglasses.  Even in the chilly winter weather I love how this Fashionisto does a good job of matching his accessories with his varsity jacket for a well-put-together look.

Nothing says college boy “swag” more than a fresh pair of kicks to match your outfit. In the case of this Fashionisto, he is rocking a pair of famous Vans, which is a skater brand of sneakers. Vans have grown increasingly popular over the last few years and have started a sneaker epidemic on college campuses all around the nation. But you don’t have to be a professional skater or even know how to skate to wear these shoes; the skater style of shoe is simply a trend that is popular between both male and female college students.

The varsity jacket is the focal point of the outfit and a great way to keep warm while still looking effortlessly cool. If you are looking to invest in a new jacket this winter season, it definitely wouldn’t hurt to add this piece to your wardrobe. It is not your average jacket and is a great piece to use for layering in the cold winter weather.  This Fashionisto complements his varsity jacket with a pair of dark washed denim, which are cuffed at the bottom for a more tailored look. Cuffing your jeans is a great way to make your shoes more visible (if they are a must-see element of the outfit) and a great way to achieve the well-put-together look.

Hint: Make this look your own by customizing the color scheme to your liking. Don’t be afraid to play up different color palettes with a multi-colored varsity jacket.
