WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Getaway

What to Wear

Though I’ve enjoyed this semester at the University of Maryland I’ve been finding myself quite overwhelmed with work. The only thing that’s keeping me motivated is being able to put a large X over each day that gets me closer to my upcoming trip. This Fashionisto’s look is perfect for a weekend getaway because it could be the perfect look whether he’s going vintage shopping with old friends or just going to get food.

This Fashionisto stuck to the basics for his look. He wore olive green cargo jeans. Colored jeans, like this Levi’s pair from Kohl’s, is the perfect pair because they are bolder than many other hues, but maintain a classic shape. The trick to wearing colored jeans is to make it the focus of your look and build your look around your colored jeans. This Fashionista completed his look with a fitted flannel, like this one from L.L.Bean, layered underneath a blue sweater, like this one from Lands’ End (which is on sale), and adorned his look with a blue tie.

My favorite part of this Fashionisto’s look was his denim jacket. A denim jacket is a closet staple because it could be dressed up or down regardless of your body type. You can either keep your look casual like this Fashionisto’s, use the jacket to add color to an all-white ensemble or even wear this one from H&M to toughen up your look.

One Simple Change: To take this look from day to night, dress up the look by swapping the dark jeans with a dark pair of dress pants from Express.
