ALL IN THE DETAILS: You Better Watch Out

If you think that CollegeFashionista is only for girls, think again. This year, I have come across several dudes who care about their clothes and really invest in their own style. Coming from a city where boys tend to rock board shorts and tank tops, I have found London to be a refreshing change of pace where guys have a variety of styles and can even compete with the wardrobes of the girls.

I found this guy strutting down the road near my university, clearly confident in his appearance. The most crucial part of his outfit was his watch. It was perfect for a casual day walking around the city. The center of the face was a multicolored pattern and had a ring of white around the outside. The Roman numerals were a deep blue and the band was a reddish brown. A power watch is essential for any man’s closet as it is a statement piece, much like that of a fabulous necklace in a woman’s closet. The watch shows that a man is confident and powerful. No matter what you do for a job, be sure to invest in a sturdy watch.

This guy wears his watch with a solid outfit that gives off an air of confidence. His red, white and blue checkered shirt works splendidly with his navy blue jumper (that’s what they call sweaters here in London). His tan pants and brown Sperry Top-Siders gave him a relaxed yet complete look for a day out on the town. Lastly, his sunglasses tied his ensemble together and showed the beginnings of spring.

How To: Trying to keep it stylin’ in these last wintery days? Go for a thin sweater that complements your statement watch. Throw on a sport coat and you can transition from day to night in the city.
