As the spring semester comes to a close, the month of May is jam packed with end of the year activities for students. From professors giving out their final exams and projects, to student clubs hosting their last meetings, it is no surprise that everyone on campus has reached the home stretch of the race to summer.

Although this time of the year has proven to be exhausting, it is a bittersweet moment as students, especially seniors, reflect on the relationships built and memories made throughout the semester. An example of a time when students say their goodbyes as they enjoy food and dance the night away is during formal events. Similar to prom night in high school, the last formal of the year in college is definitely one you will never forget.

If the suit fits, wear it. When it comes to formal, you can’t go wrong with a suit to give you a polished look. This Fashionisto shows the ultimate way to rock a black tie event without the tie. His gray suit gives his overall outfit a classic, minimalist vibe. His suede shoes and structured belt add a suave element to his suit.

Another key element to formal wear is statement pieces. This Fashionisto’s outfit definitely makes a statement as he completes his look with a watch, the perfect accessory for a formal. Overall, this Fashionisto is ready for a fun, eventful night to positively end the year.
