STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Looking The Part

September 24th, 2015 at 2:00am

When I spotted this Fashionisto near campus, I wondered what the occasion was in which he was so dressed up. After talking with him, he explained to me that he was just leaving his internship and heading towards class.

Internships are a huge deal and a very important part of your college experience. It is just as important to look professional while including bits of your own style into your work wardrobe. As a student though, it can be tricky to know what is an appropriate office to classroom look.

The thing I love the most about this Fashionisto’s look is that he isn’t afraid to play with color and pay attention to the details. Sometimes incorporating too many colors can really throw a look off. By working with similar palettes, a handsome and exciting look can be created. This Fashionisto does so by choosing a light purple button-down and pairing it with a darker blue pair of slacks. What really ties these two pieces together are the intricate checked detail found in both. From a further distance, they may appear as solid colors. Close up, they are detailed and truly unique articles.

Accessorizing can be quick and easy as well and certainly add to the detailed look. This Fashionisto keeps to his intricate look by adding a sophisticated watch with a neat pattern to spice up his wrist. Tortoise Ray-Ban sunglasses tie in perfectly with his choice of brown shoes and belt.

It can be easy to fall prey to a boring work wardrobe. Paying attention to details such as color and pattern can really turn a look from drab to fab! Adding a few favorite accessories finish a look and make you stand out.

Ladies-luckily menswear is in right now! Try some of these looks such as Oxford shoes and tuxedo pants modeled after this Fashionisto at your internship or job!
