WHAT TO WEAR: Class

The University of Oregon is not only a place where the female student body flourishes and thrives, the men of Oregon are also out on campus showing off their stylishness. Expecting a long day in the classroom on a cold and cloudy day in Eugene, this Fashionisto suited up, highlighting his casual, Pacific Northwest style. Here he paired a pink zip-up sweater from Tommy Hilfiger with a pink hat from Illegal Civilization, and then added a casual pair of classic Levi cuffed jeans to make things just right. This Fahionisto closed it out by adding a timeless pair of white canvas high-top Chuck Taylors, the most iconic sneaker available today.

The focal point of this Fashionisto’s outfit is his pop of pink running throughout his ensemble. Though it was a risky move on his part using two shades of pink, the subtle contrast pulled his look together nicely. The simple and subtle colors in this outfit were a key focus of the look, and he fashionably topped it all off with a mellow but bright pink hat, because let’s be honest, real men do wear pink.

Living here in Eugene, I feel as if a pair of Levis and Converse High Tops are essential to one’s closet. They look great on the guys as well as the girls and are perfect for any occasion as they come in so many different washes and styles. Winter in Eugene is an important time to invest in a nice warm jacket that can complement most of your wardrobe. So to top off his outfit, he grabbed his go-to faux fur hooded jacket from H&M, a perfect choice to put on over any outfit on the way to class or when grabbing a bite to eat.

One Simple Change: Shoes really can transform an outfit. Go into your closet and pull out a different pair of shoes, either to make it more casual or dress it up. A pair of lace-up boots can work well with this outfit. There are a wide collection of brands available in men’s shoes like GBX, Cole Haan and Steve Madden, just to name a few, so start shopping.
