There is nothing better than an outfit that is crisp, put-together and adaptable. This week’s Fashionisto demonstrates how a young lad can accomplish all three (with ease). Every piece of this outfit represents a great aspect of classic menswear, including the ever-so-popular Levi’s 511s with their skinny-fitted nature.
The pinstriped collared button-down, combined with a vintage burgundy sweater, gives this outfit the quintessential college-boy look that a lot of guys strive for. The Ray-Ban wayfarers and gray slouchy beanie lighten up the look, toning down the scholarly feel by adding a touch of contemporary simplicity. The chocolate brown, suede boots are what undoubtedly complete the look, making it unordinary and boyishly chic.
With the neutrality of the colors, and because the pieces themselves are so versatile, this outfit can transition effortlessly from day to night. It works great with a canvas backpack or messenger bag for a hustle and bustle kind of day in class, and it looks just as good on a city-slicking night out on a date. This is a look that is both practical and fashionable, exuding a sort of nonchalant command of style. With autumn swiftly approaching (apologies to all of you summer-lovers), this is noteworthy as a go-to outfit.
This look can easily be recreated, most likely with pieces already in the closet. Try to pair complementary colors, and make sure nothing is too tight or too loose fitting in order to maintain the tailored crispness that elevates this look.
