There’s nothing better on a gloomy fall day than to walk through campus and see the men dressed to impress…right, ladies? I found this stylin’ Fashionisto strutting through the quad and couldn’t resist interviewing him, and I’m so glad I did! Muhdi not only knows style, but he has been all around the world and it shines through his fashion choices. Creating a fashionable ensemble while encompassing a totally unique look and being able to pull it off is quite an accomplishment.
Name: Muhdi Sharif
Major: International Business and Business Administration
CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing?
Muhdi Sharif: I’m wearing a Levi Brand Jeans fedora, a custom tailored dress shirt and bowtie from Shanghai, China (from studying abroad), with a Nike belt and Nike shoes I purchased from London.
CF: Where do you get your fashion inspiration?
MS: I get my fashion inspiration from a combination of classical, modern and vintage looks. For instance, I try to imitate a look that might have been popular in the past and mix it with modern fashion.
CF: What are your two favorite pieces in your closet and why?
MS: My two favorite pieces in my closet are my suspenders that I purchased in Muscat, Oman and my black pea coat from Chicago. I love these pieces because they can be worn with almost anything.
CF: Where do you like to shop?
MS: I like to shop in foreign cities and countries, and the best are the random stores you find while traveling. I will do most of my shopping when I’m in a different city. I really like to add diversity to my closet and I would say that I have items from almost every continent in the world!
How To: In order to recreate this look you need to travel the world. Just kidding! Start with a basic button-up oxford shirt and a pair of slacks. Add your own style with a fun bow tie and fedora hat and complete the look with a pair of trendy sneakers. Guys, the ladies will be all over you! Don’t forget to really let your own unique tastes shine through your look. Nothing is more attractive than a confident, stylish and trendy Fashionisto!
