STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Sleek Crewneck

We all know the rule “less is more”. As we continue to adjust ourselves to the hectic semester, it dawned on me that I should put this rule into play more often. This stress-free look is so simple and well put-together that I had to stop this Fashionisto. The last great menswear sweater trend was the cardigan, but it seems that fashion is taking a new and clean direction in casual menswear.

This Fashionisto is sporting the perfect gray crewneck sweater. To pull off his casual look, he paired his sweater with some comfortable joggers, a nice hat and a cool backpack. The great thing about this simple sweater shape is that it comes in various styles and textures. For example, this ribbed sweater would be great paired with some casual, slim-fit trousers in a funky color. You can also try layering a bright colored sweater over a white  button-up and combine the look with deep blue jeans. If you want to elevate the look, wear a deep colored sweater with a blazer or coat. A jean jacket would definitely make this sweater a street style favorite. This piece is a huge staple in anyones closet, and the combinations are endless.

It’s obvious why this item is on trend. You can wear it when it’s cool, chilly, cold or freezing, and it’s no doubt that most campuses will be all of the above this winter. With that said, get ready to pull out your crewneck sweaters, and have some fun with them this season.
