Looking sharp does not always require a snazzy suit, dark fitted jeans or wing tip oxfords. This can be achieved in a much simpler, college friendly way. While Northeastern is known for its co-op program and many students have to wear a suit and tie on a daily basis, there are still plenty of us taking classes who still want to look dapper.

Today’s Fashionisto has achieved a sharp look on a much more casual level. By going for an almost monochromatic white ensemble, he looks chic and very on-trend. His pants fit and the cuffs at the bottom also add another level of sophistication to his look. His ombre T-shirt is perfect for a hot summer day, especially when paired with white pants and sandals. This top could also be worn with some black pants and boots for a fall ensemble. His accessories also contribute to his casually sharp outfit. His beige backpack is perfect because the color can be worn with a variety of others and the shape is interesting and unlike a regular old backpack.
