STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: A Classic Shoe In A Different Hue

The winter can mean endless days of wearing boots, especially if you’re in a climate where it snows. One of the best ways to break up this monotony is to try a different shoe silhouette, like the classic loafer. This Fashionisto wore a bold Cole Haan loafer as his footwear of choice. The bright orange leather is the perfect combination of classic and contemporary. Its timeless design, in a fun hue, creates the perfect statement piece for walking around campus.

When wearing a piece that packs a punch, you can’t go wrong with a white shirt and denim combination. These casual staples, a must-have for any college student’s wardrobe, keep the outfit fresh and effortless. The key to wearing a statement shoe is to keep contrasting colors and textures minimal in your clothing so that the outfit isn’t too busy. For example, try sporting a quilted jacket like this Fashionisto. His Burberry-inspired jacket is the perfect balance of modern and preppy with the iconic plaid print on the rolled sleeves. It brings attention to his brassy accessories, a few chain bracelets and a leather band watch.

A college outfit would not be complete without the student’s mode of carrying around their belongings. In this case, a denim backpack with leather straps made the grade, providing once again a casual element to the overall look. With easy-going pieces like these, it’s no wonder this Fashionisto’s shoes stood out from the rest.
