Finals are over, and summer has officially commenced. Campus is getting empty, but as I made my last rounds of campus searching for a stylish student, I stumbled upon this fellow. Today’s Fashionisto keeps it classic and summer simple on this hot day. He sports a classic plaid button-down with Bermuda shorts and brown boat shoes, a look only fitting to sail away on the best of boats.

Name: Sam Elder

Major: Biology and Business

Year: Sophomore

CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your style?

Sam Elder: My style is preppy, but relaxed. I like short shorts, and my style is almost fratty in a way, but I am not in a fraternity. I like to wear button-down shirts, shorts, skinny jeans that are not too skinny and Sperry Top-Siders. Sperry Top-Siders are a staple for me.

CF: Who is your style icon and why?

SE: I really like the way that Lana Del Rey dresses, not that she inspires me. I just love the way that she looks— the style that she has and what she wears.

CF: What is favorite part about dressing for the summer?

SE: I like being able to show off my legs, especially if I have a tan and just being comfortable.

How To: To achieve this classic ensemble, locate a simple short sleeve button-down. Make sure to keep the fabric light to suit the warmer weather. Next, find some trendy Bermuda shorts. You can buy the shorts at knee length, or do it yourself and cut an old pair of jeans. Then, find a classic brown or black waist belt and pair your look with neutral Sperry Top-Sider shoes.
