ALL IN THE DETAILS: Effortlessly Dapper

Hey, Fashionistas/os! I can’t believe it’s already August—the Sunday of summer. As we’re all squeezing our last bit of summer activities in for the month, we strive to do so in style. This Fashionisto is a great example of casual summer style, and he’s still feeling the summer heat.

Although he wears an extremely casual and basic outfit, he knows how to make it a chic and trendy look using certain accessories, style techniques and subtle color and material coordination. On his way to work, our Fashionisto sports perfectly fitting, black skinny jeans, a plain white T-shirt and a gray flannel wrapped around his waist. To complete the look, he wears a pair of classic brown leather oxfords and aviator sunglasses, and he carries his belongings stylishly in a handsome, rustic-colored yet urban style leather backpack.

His plain white David Beckham T-shirt from H&M is a cool and comfortable piece to wear in the steaming hot weather. It looks great with the front tucked into his black jeans, showing off his brown leather belt that coordinates with his shoes and his backpack. The David Beckham label is subtly shown off on the right side of the front shirt, which is perfectly placed above his hip from the front of the shirt being tucked in.

His slim-fit black jeans are the perfect fit, making his look clean and put together. He cuffs the bottoms to show the ankle, which is a great casual look appropriate for the summer season. The flannel wrapped around his waist is a nice touch to the plain outfit, and the shoes add a more formal touch to the casual mood. Finally, his backpack is a classic and stylish way to carry his belongings and coordinates perfectly with the worn-in brown oxfords.

How To: Want to spruce up your look for running errands or going to class but keep it casual? Do as this Fashionisto does, and pair your basic T-shirt and jeans combination with a pair of oxford shoes. To make your look a bit more edgy and stylish, try tucking your plain T-shirt into the front or the side of your jeans, showing off a belt. Wrap your flannel or plaid shirt around your waist for a trendy, urban vibe.
