FASHIONISTO SPOTLIGHT: Alex Wu

Our Fashionisto this week rocks the perfect casual Friday look for a day at the office or for a low-key date. I like that he kept the color palette simple and the silhouettes classic. Yet he managed to add a touch of sass with his snazzy socks.

Name: Alex Wu

Major: Health Sciences

Year: Freshman

CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing and where is it from?

Alex Wu: The button-down is from Brooks Brothers, the sweater is American Eagle Outfitters and my pants are Polo Ralph Lauren. I’m wearing an American Eagle Outfitters¬† belt, Bass socks and Bass boat shoes, along with my Swiss Army watch. The boat shoes are super comfy.

CF: How would you describe your personal style?

AW: I’ll wear pink shirts, or crazy socks (the weirder the better) and not worry too much about it. I don’t think it matters what you wear, as long as you wear it with swag.

CF: Who is your style icon?

AW: Kanye West. He has great personal style and I love the Nike Air Yeezy. I also like Chance The Rapper. 

CF: What television shows have influenced your style?

AW: Mad Men, Sherlock and Boardwalk Empire.

CF: What are your favorite places to shop?

AW: Versace, if I had an unlimited budget. Currently my wardrobe is mostly American Eagle Outfitters, J.Crew, Brooks Brothers and The North Face. 

CF: What is your fashion pet peeve?

AW: When people wear shoes without socks.

How To: While I obsess over preppy, romantic clothes at Club Monaco or Marchesa, in real life I’m wearing a lot of edgy, printed and graphic items. My personal style varies greatly from the fashion I am drawn to, because I have to dress for my body shape, budget and environment. Like our Fashionisto, we should all aim to add a touch of the fashion we love into our looks, even if it’s Versace socks or Marchesa perfume.
