STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Snapbacks and Frat Shoes

Style Advice of the Week

While Fashionistas seem to reign supreme on street style blogs, isn’t it always refreshing to see a boy who makes an appearance? Sometimes it’s difficult to find guys with great style but this one nails it. My Fashionisto this week not only looks effortlessly put together, but also has that classic prep style that makes girls melt.

Guys, the great thing about dressing to impress is that it’s really simple! Just start with the basics. This Fashionisto wears a classic button-down from Brooks Brothers, some fitted khakis haphazardly cuffed at the hem and a pair of Sperry Top-Siders, the necessary footwear for every Fashionisto. He completes the look with a backwards cap from Southern Marsh over his shaggy hair and a pair of tortise shell Ray-Ban Wayfarers. All these brands combine to make him look like the ultimate prepster, a look that combines the preppy schoolboy style with the “I don’t care” attitude of a hipster.

Achieving this look is simple. Start with a crisp sport shirt from a preppy favorite such as Vineyard Vines or Southern Tide. Even though the winter season is upon us, don’t be afraid to go for those pastels to make yourself stand out. Throwing on a vest from a brand like Patagonia will help keep your look balanced. Check out Sperry Topsiders for an endless assortment of shoes. Since boat shoes might not be the ideal choice for December weather, I recommend a pair of moccasins.

Boys, take a tip from this Fashionisto and class up your wardrobe. It’s not too late to end this semester with a bang!
