WHAT TO WEAR: Back To School

Summer: long, hot days spent poolside, hanging out with friends, no work and minimal responsibilities. Yeah, don’t we all wish that’s all summer was? Personally, I cannot wait to go back to school in the fall. One of my favorite things about going back is planning my wardrobe. But let’s be real, as college students we’re shopping on a budget, and looking for great buys than can transition through the seasons.

This Fashionisto is demonstrating his style with simple, but timeless pieces. When you’re shopping for back to school, get your basics cheap and splurge on those statement items! This outfit has a classic, casual vibe to it that never goes out of style. For menswear, button down shirts are a must have. These simple pieces go a long way in a closet. You can dress them up or down for different events and roll the sleeves up depending on the weather. Button down shirts can take a guy through the summer season into fall, without breaking the bank. This Fashionisto is also rocking a great pair of skinny, taupe, brown chinos. This is a great color because it literally goes with every outfit you could imagine.

Not only is this Fashionisto styling his basics well, but he also wears statement pieces to personalize his look. His suede shoes tie his look together in a classic way. This kind of shoe never goes out of style for casual menswear, so they are a great buy. In addition, his sunglasses add some major personality to this look. Mirrored sunglasses have come back into trend recently and they are a great addition to add flair to any outfit.

One Simple Change: Throw on a blazer and swap the shoes for some leather loafers. Then you have a great, classic look for an internship. This will take your look from casual to work-ready with minimal effort.
