Believe it or not, spring is around the corner. I know, I know. Right now, as you are forced to wear a million and a half layers just to avoid the feeling of frostbite, it doesn’t seem possible. But soon enough, I promise, warm weather will arrive.
For many Fashionistos the promise of warm weather means one thing—hang out sessions on the quad. Whether it is throwing around a frisbee with your bro’ and catching a nap in between classes, clocking in time on the quad is a favorite of Fashionistos. But, as any Fashionisto knows, it is not only where you are, but what you are wearing that is important.
These two dapper Fashionistos hit the mark in their coordinating ensembles. Who doesn’t love a fitted, crew neck sweatshirt? It is a staple item among Fashionistos and Fashionistas alike. What is so great about the crew neck sweatshirt is that it is the ultimate layering piece. It looks great on its own when paired with a well-fitted chinos. Or you can dress up the sweatshirt by throwing a button-down underneath for a pop of polish, like the Fashionisto on the left.
As with most garments, the key is the fit. An oversized sweatshirt can look messy, unkept and a fashion nightmare. But, when fitted, the sweatshirt hits the mark with the sportswear trend currently taking over the fashion world.
One Simple Change: While I am digging their combat boots for a casual afternoon on the quad, swap out the boots for a pair of boat shoes or loafers for a more refined look. Throw a blazer on over the sweatshirt and you are ready for a casual date night with your lady.
