As the end of the year makes a blissful appearance, finding the balance between work and play can be difficult. The first thing on all of our minds is how we are going to celebrate the end of the school year and first couple weeks of summer. This Fashionisto is wearing the perfect outfit for transitioning from a final presentation to a night out. He is wearing a blue gingham patterned shirt with a salmon colored tie. He has navy chinos on with brown leather boots and a brown leather watch to accessorize. To make his outfit more casual for going out, he could simply take his tie off and he will be ready for the night!

Name: AJ Pignone

Major: History

Year: Junior

College Fashionista: What are you wearing today?

AJ Pignone: My shirt and tie are Ralph Lauren, my pants are from J.Crew, my watch is Fossil and my shoes are J SHOES.

CF: How would you describe your personal style?

AP: I really like to make sure that I’m wearing what’s in. The tighter pants look is coming back in from the 80’s and I think it makes a good statement. I like my clothes to tell people that I’m fun and approachable. I think it’s important for guys to understand how to dress.

CF: How do you find an equal balance between work and play?

AP: It can be hard honestly. I love going out and having a good time between playing football, studying and hanging with my friends but I have to make sure I am organized. There always has to be time for play especially when you are in a frat!

How To: Just as this Fashionisto did, you can easily dress up and dress down a button-up shirt. Guys have it easy in the sense that they can just add a tie to dress things up. This 7 Diamonds sport shirt from Nordstrom has a subtle pattern on it that will look great with and without a tie. Pair this shirt with these Dockers chinos and you’ll have a perfect outfit for a presentation or an end of the semester party!
