WHAT TO WEAR: Class

Perhaps it was the fact that he looked perfectly warm in this winter chill. Or maybe it was the combination of primary hues in his ensemble that had this Fashionisto reminding me of a certain British bear currently in cinemas—Paddington.

These aspects, along with the toggle coat, are very reminiscent of the popular talking bear. However, they’re not just seen on the big screen but also on the runways of fall 2014 menswear. This Fashionisto’s outfit is so on trend; it’s difficult to believe I spotted him on a Monday while heading to class. He proves that you can dress comfortably and collected for class, no matter what temperature or day of the week it is.

There are so many popular pieces to this Fashionista’s ensemble; I hardly know where to begin. For one, the toggle coat is a refreshing detour from the mass of black ski jackets. The outerwear style was seen on the menswear runways for this season from Umit Benan, Valentino and also a playful denim take on toggle from Dior Homme. Other awesome aspects of this Fashionisto’s ensemble include the crimson corduroy, mock turtleneck sweater, oxfords and tortoise specs.

This Fashionisto exemplifies what to wear to class, down to his monogram backpack. The two-strap bag was seen on so many menswear runways. Of course, this accessory is quite necessary to a university student, and this Fashionisto shows how to stand out on the trek across the quad.

One Simple Change: Exchange the oxfords for lace-up boots when the cold weather really kicks in and walking involves maneuvering around snow.
