STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Pattern Play

Sometimes playing it safe can be our go-to move when it comes to fashion. Throwing on your favorite pair of jeans and a simple T-shirt to play the casual card is something we often find ourselves falling into when getting dressed in the morning. Although wearing similar things everyday is a pattern people find themselves falling into often, follow a different kind of pattern—one on your clothes!

This Fashionisto does a great job rocking a unique pattern on his shirt, something not often seen. Although the classic plaid and gingham shirts are seen on campuses everywhere, it’s a breath of fresh air seeing such a fun and bold top for the summer! The pattern itself, an array of sailboats on a bright blue foundation, is also a great pattern for summer because of the colors and nautical theme.

Since the pattern on the shirt is so bold and eye-catching, this Fashionisto used other simple pieces to pull the look together. Pairing classic khaki shorts and flip flops together in this look gives for the perfect outfit for the summer time.

Although the shirt is the main focus of this outfit, the glasses this Fashionisto rocks help add another fun angle to this outfit by accessorizing without being too over the top. Even though many people don’t wear glasses, wearing them (if you have them) is a fun way to give a new twist to your outfit while also giving a chic flair.
