The magic of fashion lies in its ability to allow us to construct the person we want to be. Whether it’s on the New England prepster, the professional businessman or art-consumed hipster, every detail of an outfit helps convey something about its wearer. This week’s Fashionisto builds his style from the feet up, using all details from his shoes to his belt to contribute to his Euro-American meets SoCal look.
Having spent a year abroad in France, this Fashionisto effortlessly combines European sophistication with his own laid-back style. The color of his black Levi jeans updates a classic American look with a more refined, European edge, and the slim fit contributes to his timeless style. His classic V-neck Tommy Hilfiger sweater also makes for the perfect wardrobe staple. Its muted color renders it a great option for multiple seasons, and its slim fit and lightweight fabric allows it to be layered without adding bulk. His Polo Ralph Lauren belt likewise adds a statement detail with its sleek silver plaque.
Sporting a sample pair from the limited edition collection of K-Swiss X Yigal Azrouël sneakers, this Fashionisto furthers his modern and fresh aesthetic with subtle details even on his feet. The five velcro straps are an edgy update to the classic K-Swiss signature stripes, and the neutral color of the sneakers makes them a fashionable alternative to the usual sporty sneaker.
To get this Fashionisto’s look, invest in classic, fitted pieces that can be combined for a look of understated refinement. The simple details of his outfit create a cohesive look that is both nonchalant and sophisticated.
