Fashionistos in college tend to carry the stigma that they struggle to find their style voice when lost in a sea of sweatpants and athletic wear. This Fashionisto is definitely squashing that rumor, and doing it in style.
The navy Zara blazer
is a great alternative to just popping on a sweatshirt as the months get colder. The madras print button-down adds the pop of a print to his ensemble among all of the solids. On his feet, the amazing Del Toro
”Embroidered Skull and Crossbones Slippers” add the perfect bit of polished edge to his outfit. Fashionisto on a budget? There is a very similar pair made by Steve Madden
for about half the price.
Going to school in such a close proximity of Boston definitely has its perks–one of them definitely being the multitude of delicious restaurants, and specifically brunch spots. Although I stopped this Fashionisto just as he was going about his day full of classes and meetings, this outfit would be absolute perfection as a brunch outfit on a Sunday morning. It is polished yet youthful; a delicate balance. Many times, college-aged twenty-somethings struggle to achieve a semblance of professionalism while maintaining personal and youthful style.
These “smoking slippers” or velvet loafers have been everywhere in the men’s fashion world for quite some time now. I am not referring to Hugh Hefner’s omnipresent pair of them, but rather seeing them on Michael Bastian’s runway for his spring 2013 collection.
One Simple Change: For a more rugged look, switch out the loafers for a pair of leather Chelsea boots and the blazer for a classic L.L. Bean Field Jacket.
