STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Work Style Meets Personal Style

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Work Style Meets Personal Style

As the busy college students that we are, we sometimes have to learn to balance many things such as school, work and even a social life. We have to not only balance our time, but also our style. As true fashion lovers, we always want to show off and remain true to our personal style no matter where we are or what we are doing. Depending on the occasion this can sometimes be a bit of a challenge, but don’t worry because it is totally doable as this Fashionisto shows us.

One of the most challenging places to showcase our personal style is the workplace. Every job is different and some require a very strict dress code, but sometimes there are subtle ways around these rules to spice up an outfit. For example, in this case you can see how this Fashionisto showed off a bit of his own style while wearing a simple white button down and black bottoms attire. He added a hipster vibe by adding black suspenders with silver detailing as well as a pair of black chelsea boots. He also subtly deviated from the completely clean look by not tucking in his jeans and folding the sleeves of his shirt. The shirt also has coarser stitching, which makes the pockets stand out more and it gives the whole look a bit more texture. By adding these accessories and small details, he manages to keep a good balance between the work style and his own.

Because the attire has such basic colors like black and white, there are so many other great ways that he can change up the outfit without disturbing the overall feel of the look. For example, next time he might consider changing it up by wearing a bowtie or even a nice belt. Another suggestion could be to go in a more casual direction and wear Converse or Vans instead. Either way, I think he did an amazing job at showcasing his style and personality with this rocking outfit and you can do it too!
