STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Back to Campus Basics

It’s about that time again—college students everywhere are heading back to campus and if they are anything like this Fashionisto, they are dressing to impress. Each new school year brings with it the opportunity to impress your classmates with your style. Everyone wants to look their best on the first day of class while still remaining cool and casual, and this outfit does just that.

This Fashionisto might be playing it safe, but that doesn’t necessarily mean this outfit is boring. The pieces of this outfit are the staple of a lot of college guy’s closets. It’s simple and put together and doesn’t require you to stress about matching different patterns, even though that can be super fun!

It is always a good idea to have V-necks in a few different colors. Looks like this can easily be taken from casual to more formal and versatile pieces like this shirt and slim, straight pants are important. This look can be taken from casual to more formal by swapping out the Nikes for boat shoes or loafers.

Don’t be afraid to wear two colors that might not necessarily match. The color wheel is your friend, remember? Even toned down shades of the primary colors (red, blue and yellow) can look good together. You could also match cool hues with warm hues. Cool hues like violet minimize while warm colors like orange stand out. This allows you to create a color palette that plays to your best features.
