STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Balanced Cool

May 26th, 2016 at 2:00am

Long gone are the days in which I create a New Year’s resolution, as they fall flat by March. Instead of half attempts to alter my idiosyncrasies, I’ve found what I’m truly desiring: balance. Not just as a solution to my eternal clumsiness, but also in my daily wardrobe and life. From obtaining an ideal school/work/running an organization balance and my social life, to utilizing pieces which can be adorned in several styles, acquiring balance has come with much feat; however, it’s always refreshing to encounter an individual with my goals already secured. This week’s Fashionisto is a quirky soul with balance down pact!

Creating a well-balanced ensemble begins with a classic pair of denim. With its versatile hue and fit, fashioning a foundation for a more unique top half is effortless. Selecting a T-shirt to coincide with jeans brings many options. A usual striped selection receives an upgrade with its pink coloring and gray striped socks underneath his cuffed pants. The final and tiniest element creates the largest impact: the galaxy pocket on his T-shirt. Perfectly stitched on by today’s Fashionisto, it refrains the look from becoming nautical while adding a personal aesthetic to the classic ensemble.

In the past years in which “norm core” ensembles have reigned supreme, this week’s look is a simple recreation. Utilizing a simple pair of jeans, stripes in various colors and a quirky pocket while adorning for his body and aesthetic, this week’s Fashionisto is the epitome of balance. Incorporating basics already in your closet while adding a singular personal element creates an ensemble ideal for you: no more resolutions, just minimal dressing.
