If there’s one thing you’re not accustomed to seeing in the mountains of North Carolina, it is a Fashionisto dressed to the nines. I’m talking about your best pair of slacks and a button-down that makes you want to iron it before you walk out the door. Of course, going through blizzards and heavy winds to make it to an 8:00 a.m. class doesn’t sound like the best thing to attempt in a light long sleeve. However, with the right colored pieces and time you might just have yourself a perfect storm of easy to wear outfits that will impress every time.

This Fashionisto is rocking a look with a simple, neutral color scheme. Though the colors aren’t out there, he still manages to make a statement. Slim-fit pants, button-downs and blazers have broken out from the business world and into street style wear everywhere. The best part about it is you don’t have to put in much effort when creating this outfit. To add in some personality this Fashionisto completed his outfit with some casual oxfords and a slouchy beanie. With the right blend of professional and casual, you can ultimately feel comfortable going out for any occasion. Whether it’s making rounds at a conference or hitting the town with friends.

The key is to not overthink it and look for pieces that are versatile. This way you’ll always have an outfit that can go with anything and allows you to add in accessories to convey your own style.

How To: To recreate this look, find a simple long sleeve button-down with a neutral color. You can then pair it up with a pair of pants or slacks. For the shoes you can always go for a pair of oxfords or chukka boots.
