We’ve waited so long. Now everything has finally aligned — the beautiful weather, the dying down of spring break drama, the excitement of summer plans and all else — so that we can once again lay out after the day’s classes. These first few days of spring, everyone will surely be out enjoying as much sunshine as possible. This week’s Fashionisto has on bold colors and fun patterns, and he’s ready to claim his patch of grass on the quad to see and be seen.
Notice the color scheme that uses dark blue, instead of black, as a neutral. He then plays with lighter blues, a bright green on his quilted jacket and pops of warm yellow on his sweater. Going further with the playfulness of the sweater, the geometric pattern adds that punch so that the traditional ensemble of collared shirt under a crewneck sweater has a more contemporary and youthful flair. Try this printed crew from A.P.C.
Another staple this spring are boat shoes. Our Fashionisto has one in a dark suede that grounds his outfit bustling with patterns and colors. You can find a similar style from Sperry Top-Sider that you can slip off to run barefoot on the grass.
When playing on the quad, take a cue from this Fashionisto and show off your fun side using patterns and hues.
One Simple Change: For a heat wave, lose the sweater in exchange for a short-sleeved polo that can be just as fun.
