WHAT TO WEAR: Out With Friends

What to Wear

It is almost mid-summer. The days are open and filled with beach trips and concerts, Birkenstock sandals and tank tops instead of project meetings and study groups, backpacks and notebooks. With more time on your hands, there is more opportunity to do the things you love with the people who make it the most fun. I caught this Fashionisto while out shopping with his friends. I asked him what his style inspiration was and he responded “comfort.”

I really love the soft cotton T-shirt that this Fashionisto is wearing. The polka-dot print (his favorite print) is a classic and the bright red pocket on the blue and white is a great twist that offers a summer nautical feel. Instead of the usual dark denim, he chose to pair it with really light denim jeans from H&M. For the footwear, he chose an unexpected color choice, his favorite green and white Nike Air Jordan 1′s, which are worn with most looks, including this outfit.

Accessories are kept to a minimum with a Stussy camouflage hat, red CarpeDream beaded bracelet and gold Michael Kors watch. His intent was not to match, but to show the awareness of trends with a huge focus on personal style. This relaxed look has an urban spin and was executed perfectly on his comfy day out with friends.

One Simple Change: To continue in comfortable style, trade out the denim jeans for denim cut offs that stop right above-the-knee and lace-ups such as Vans or Converse.
