I’ve always loved the first day of school, especially the night before it. Throughout grade school, my mom (who’s a school teacher), my sister and I would spend hours doing our hair and nails and choosing outfits to wear. While getting my long, often unruly hair to straighten would take over an hour, without fail, it was deciding what to wear that I spent the most time on. For me, the first day was a chance to start fresh and to present yourself to those you’d be spending the semester with in the best light possible- and today’s Fashionisto does just that.
Today's Fashionisto's decision to wear a bright red polo underneath a neutral black sweater creates a look that is simultaneously bold, yet understated. The loud red emits an air of confidence (good first impressions!), while the classic black V-neck sweater gives the outfit a more conservative, polished feel. This Fashionisto keeps his look low-key and approachable by pairing his top with a pair of straight-legged blue jeans.
He completes his look with a pair of Polo Ralph Lauren canvas shoes that I absolutely love. The khaki color coupled with the brown leather laces creates a preppy vibe and add a wonderful color contrast to the rest of this Fashionisto’s outfit. While this pair might not be the easiest choice for transversing the piles of snow and ice on the ground, they're a pleasant reminder of easier times (SUMMER) and stylistically speaking, they're an A+.
The featured Fashionisto's outfit is the perfect first day of school outfit for men. It's clean, it's classic, and it's cute.
