Many college fashion enthusiasts find inspiration from runway shows. During these past fashion weeks, a new trend began to emerge. Many menswear designers chose a strong black and white color palette. From Maison Martin Margiela to Givenchy, this trend has been shown heavily on the runway and is now making its way to street wear. Being that numerous runway styles are typically out of a reasonable price range for a college student, recreating a runway trend can be a fun challenge. This Fashionisto is a perfect example of how to successfully take on the challenge.
This Fashionisto is rocking a black and white accent shirt by Billionaire Boys Club. He pairs the black shirt with a pair of solid black denim pants by H&M. These pants are flexible and easy to style during the fall. He solidifies his look with a fresh pair of black and white triple tongue Adidas by Jeremy Scott. He accessorizes with a purple Casio G-Shock watch that makes for a slight pop of color. He also includes a small print pattern coin pouch. This Fashionisto takes the concept of black and white and fits it into a easy ready-to-wear look.
Hint: Try taking a runway trend and making it into your own. This Fashionisto chose to use the black and white color palette runway trend. Another trend to try this fall is incorporating leather into some of your looks. Leather is a versatile material and looks good as a shirt, pant, jacket and/or an accessory. If you are pro-animal or on a budget like most college students, there are many faux leather options to satisfy your needs as well.
