Now that summer is in full swing, fashion is too! One of my favorite styles for summer is this Fashionisto’s preppy look. Spotted wearing such a bold outfit, I was immediately interested in asking him some questions. After talking to this Fashionisto for a while, I learned that his style is heavily based on his involvement with lacrosse, his fraternity and his multiple years in prep school.

Year: Senior

Major: Criminology

CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing today?

Anthony Dell’Aquila: My shirt, shorts and belt are all from Vineyard Vines along with my Oakley croakies. My watch is Michael Kors and my shoes are Sperry Top-Siders.

CF: How would you describe your style?

CF: What would you say inspires your style?

How To: Achieving our Fashionisto’s preppy summer style is simple. This is a look you will frequently see in the summertime at a country club, on a golf course or on a fraternity guy. First, pair a white polo shirt with a simple pair of coral shorts. Top the look off with a pair of classic Sperry Top-Siders and a printed belt. Although this look is bold, if you’re willing to experiment, it is a fun and young look to try. If you’re feeling like going a little over the top with your accessories, add a Michael Kors watch and a pair of Oakley sunglasses. Like our Fashionisto has done, wear a pair of croakies for a fun addition to your summer look.
