Unfortunately, summer break is coming to an end, which means our days left to soak up the sun are numbered. When packing to move back to our college towns for a new semester, it can be difficult to limit your summer wear with the end of the season rapidly approaching. Fortunately, there are a few staple items every Fashionisto can wear well into the beginning of autumn. This weekend, this Fashionisto brought his summer break to a casual conclusion by finding a happy medium between a masculine and preppy wardrobe.
Finding balance in your wardrobe is always a fashionable factor to keep in mind with every outfit. Whether it’s contrasting a bold red lip with lightly lined lids or loading up a bland outfit with several accessories, balance is key. This Fashionisto showcased his masculine side by exposing his toned muscles with a tank top, which balanced the preppy impression his color choices and shorts made. Note: tank tops and preppy shorts are easily transformable articles that can go from weekend wear during summer break to tailgate season in the fall.
The summer is a colorful season, so what better way to celebrate the conclusion of this heat other than decorating our fashionable selves in the season’s hottest hues? Adding a decent dose of color to your weekend wear can transform any ordinary back-to-school outfit to a brighter and more refreshed look. This Fashionisto sported the vibrant duo of mint green and coral. Colorful accents such as these are also items worth packing for autumn as they will keep every outfit bright while the leaves begin to fade and fall.
A typical weekend before heading back to school requires as much relaxation as a Fashionista/o can get. Therefore, keeping it casual is a weekend wear must. This Fashionisto added the casual complements of a hat and sneakers. Accessories such as these can turn your look to casually chic in no time. Topping off your back-to-school list with a fashionable lid is important in the fall for when winds begin to pick up their speed and your good hair days are nowhere to be found. Additionally, your walk to classes can turn into something like a campus hike so packing shoes that are easy to walk in, such as sneakers, are important to bring to school this fall.
One Simple Change: Replacing this Fashionisto’s preppy shorts with a pair of swim trunks and swapping his sneakers for sandals will take his look from weekend wear to a day at the beach.
