BU campus is full of creative, casual, and boujee trends. This allows each student to express themselves in different ways. Spotted: a pre-med student roaming around Bay State road, while listening to Kanye West tunes. Every student here at BU walks to classes with their earphones in, listening to whatever kids listen to these days. I find that the music they listen to, has an influence on how they dress.
Kanye West has his own fashion line that usually includes oversize men and womens’ shirts. Immediately, when I spotted this student I knew he was a Kanye West fan. It is hard to purchase Yeezy clothing because of the staggering prices, but we can achieve the same style by putting our own spin on it.
This Fashionisto started with a loose, oversize, gray T-shirt and layered a long sleeve, light pink sweater on top. These colors are perfect for the spring. With the different lengths of both tops, we can see the contrast between them. To add another layer, he chose a dark blue cardigan. I loved this addition because it is entirely individualistic, swaying away from the Yeezy look.
For the bottoms, it is usually smart to pair the tops with jeans, or in this case, dark navy skinny jeans. Now, the shoes are the most important part of the Yeezy look because of the color and material involved. In Kanye’s collection, he tends to go with more neutral colors for his shoes. As seen in the pictures, the boots that this Fashionisto chose to wear are a beige color, suede material, and have a military look to them. It is, of course, mandatory to tuck those jeans into the boots so the details of the boots can be seen.
For accessories, we have a silver Omega watch, paired with a magnetic bracelet, and a pair of shades. Sunglasses are a necessity here in Boston because even though it may be 20 degrees, we have to look cool and smile through the horrible weather.
This specific outfit is a great everyday look for men all over the East Coast. It provides men with a stylish, yet smart outfit. Music always influences teenagers to do crazy things, but in this case, Kanye did an astounding job in influencing this Fashionisto to put Yeezy aesthetics in his spring day outfit. As Kanye would say, “Believe in your flyness, conquer your shyness.” Stay RAD my Fashionistas and Fashionistos.
