My name is James Michael Vela. Summer break has finally arrived and I couldn’t be happier to begin round two as a Style Guru representing South Texas College! Like this past semester, I will be reporting for LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS. Along contributing to CollegeFashionista this summer, I will begin working with a local publication as well. This internship has opened so many doors for me and words cannot express how thankful I am!
Summer in Texas is by far the most brutal, with temperatures surpassing the 100-degree mark. That’s no excuse to sacrifice a day out in the sun looking stylish though! What are a few of my summer essentials to get me through the hottest time of the year? Statement shorts are a must: no summer wardrobe is complete without a pair of shorts in a cool pattern, design or color. A great pair of sandals (aka Jesus sandals) and vibrant sneakers will also get plenty of use this season. Once again, as seasons change, my style remains the same as I continually seek and wear garments that are comfortable and practical with a surprise element.
Besides a much needed break from school, one of my favorite parts about summer is the style. This is definitely not the season to be sporting thick layers so it’ll be interesting to see how Fashionistos will let their personal style shine through. As always, I hope that you all will enjoy the daily dose of awesome style that myself and the rest of the Style Gurus will be posting on a weekly basis. Have a great summer everyone!
