There is nothing I love more than accessories. They take a bland, boring outfit from simple to stylish and allow you to emphasize your greatest assets, or hide the ones you aren’t so fond of. Accessories are especially important for fall and winter; they keep you warm when the temperature drops and often are the only part of your outfit that stands out against the dark winter palette of blue jeans and black coats.
This Fashionisto definitely approves of adding accessories to an outfit for an extra kick. He rocked a slouchy beanie and messenger bag with a flannel plaid shirt and combat boots on his daily walk to class. By choosing a messenger bag instead of a backpack he turned his look from academic to stylish. Another great aspect of this Fashionisto’s outfit is his combat boots. They add an edge to his outfit and are also perfect for the cooler months ahead. Gentlemen, please take note from this Fashionisto. It is often easy to throw on whatever is warmest in your closet and hike across campus to class, but with a few items, like a hat or scarf, you can transform your plain outfit to a stylish one. Accessories are not only for girls, so don’t forget to utilize them! Rock a scarf with a chambray button-up or imitate this Fashionisto and wear a beanie with a plaid shirt.
To keep warm during the cooler fall mornings, without having to grab a coat, rock a flannel button-up. It is thick enough to keep you warm on your walk to your dreaded 8 a.m.’s and when noon comes around easy enough to roll up the sleeves and keep you cool.
