FASHIONISTO SPOTLIGHT: Patrick Butcher

This Fashionisto struck me due to his mix of tailored, sporty, casual and comfy garb. He oh-so-impeccably paried a chambray button-down with a textured yet cozy cardigan, with tailored elephant grey slacks, navy socks that peek through his chic-sneaks and lastly a messenger.  He played up his blue-hues — honing in on one of this season's biggest trends: monocromatic. However, he played with shades which gave this Fashionisto's ensemble dimention and depth.

CollegeFashionista: What's your take on the menswear trend for women?

Patrick Butcher: It is chic because it is unexpected. By having a boyish style, it just shows everyone you aren't afraid of ditching the”norms” of what a girl should wear and approaching something unique. If done right, you'll look stylish and confident.

CF: Favorite trend in menswear right now? 

PB: I don't know if it is a trend or if it is just what I do, but I think just adding a cuff of some sort to your wardrobe can really add an edge to your outfit. Whether it be cuffing your jeans, your chinos or your favorite shirt , you'll start to see your wardrobe in a whole new way.

CF: What looks most chic on a woman?

PB: Kind of on the lines of the boyish look, I think wearing baggy clothes can make a girl look really stylish. Whether it be buying a baggy sweater or just going one size up, I think you'll look relaxed and put together. Sometimes not showing off your body can work in your favor.

How To: Play up this seasons monocramatic look or add a twist with varying shades with this J.Crew caridigan, button down and slacks to get this Fashionisto's on-trend look.
