When it comes to a normal day, when you have nothing too special to do besides maybe class or grabbing food downtown, this Fashionisto’s style does just the trick. It is simple and easy, while also giving off a put together look. Casual day-to-day dress is a great way to express personal style without trying too hard.
This Fashionisto throws together a few classic pieces. For example, Nike shoes, but a more sportswear style rather than your typical running sneaker, a colored American Apparel zip up, a black bomber jacket and a pair of timeless Ray-Ban Wayfarers. I like the color choice of his shoes because they aren’t too flashy, especially when you are wearing a brighter under layer or patterned scarf.
Bomber jackets are a common choice of college guys. I have seen many Fashionistos around campus wearing them. They are warm, good for layering and a classic. They give a similar look to a wool pea coat without buttons. When wearing a bomber, you look clean and simple while also keeping warm. What more could a Penn State guy ask for?
You can also dress up the look for more formal occasions, or keep it casual like we see here. Try it with cords, a tie and lace up shoes if you are trying to impress. If not, the simplicity of the coat allows for making a statement in another part of your look. Because the rest of the outfit is casual, you have the option for a fun color or pattern underneath. This Fashionisto pops a bright purple hood out the back of his jacket and a pairs it with a plaid scarf.
I know you all feel confident when you put on a real jacket, whether it is a pea coat or a bomber, so try it out on your average day. It’s a simple piece that easily turns casual into stylish effortlessly.
Hint: There are so many styles of bomber jackets, so try to keep it to a plain color so it remains a piece that is easy to pair with the rest of your wardrobe.
