MKTO definitely got it right with their recent song, “Classic,” singing the words anyone would love to hear, “And they don’t make you like they used to. You’re never going out of style.” Some of my all-time favorite wardrobe pieces are those that will never go out of style. I love reading about or shopping for items that I think are “timeless.” Classic pieces are also the items you can justify spending just a little bit extra for because, well, you’ll wear them forever, right?
This Fashionisto, in my opinion, expertly captures a classic style with a slight twist in this dressy-casual look.
Starting from the bottom, these Adidas Stan Smith sneakers are arguably one of the most popular white sneaker pairs in current street-style fashions, as well as a wardrobe addition to keep forever. These sneaks really complete his look, giving off more of a dressed-down vibe and tying together nicely with the white in his checkered button-down.
Next up are his worn-in, tapered Levi’s. These jeans are both classic and current in this washed black color and look great with his Stan Smiths. Paired with a dark blue leather jacket and topped with a minimalist metal watch, this look takes this Fashionisto from class, to work, to a casual date night without needing any outfit changes or additions.
The most productive college students are not always the busiest, but usually the best at time management. This Fashionisto describes this specific look as “a fool proof stable and a go-to” for his busiest days. “Fool proof staples” are typically your best and favorite classic wardrobe pieces. A great pair of sneakers, a leather jacket, or a high-quality pair of jeans will never let you down during your morning outfit decisions. Staples give you plenty of time to be productive, polished, and maybe even MKTO song worthy. Hey, you never know!
