Everyone knows the classic story book image of a fisherman with his essential canvas hat and boat shoes. This style has recently come back as a trend with guys sporting the archetypal fisherman hat with an otherwise preppy ensemble. The look is perfect for spring because the nautical essence fits in with the vibes of the season. I caught up with this Fashionisto who seems to have the fisherman inspired look down.
Name: Stan Okoro
CollegeFashionista: What inspired your outfit today?
Stan Okoro: The weather definitely inspired my outfit because it was very sunny and nice outside. These clothes are kind of free.
CF: Who is your style icon?
SO: I don’t really have a style icon but for the bucket hat I would definitely say that School Boy Q would be my style icon because he’s bringing the trend back. So I’m supporting the movement.
CF: What is your favorite spring trend?
SO: My favorite spring and summer trend I guess would be like bro tanks and tank tops, just during the day because it’s hot outside in Georgia. So that would probably be the main thing.
CF: What is your go-to spring accessory?
SO: My all time accessory would be my watch which I always wear whenever I go anywhere and do my main things. Other than that like socks and shoes…I don’t know.
CF: How would you describe your personal style?
SO: That’s hard…my personal style…it’s just whatever I’m feeling at the moment. I don’t think too hard about my clothes.
How To: To get this nautical look, you need to adopt the fisherman essentials into your wardrobe. The bucket hat is the fundamental part of this look but give it a stylish twist by picking one with a unique pattern. Along with the hat, choose a button-up that also has a funky pattern perfect for the spring vibe. The fisherman outfit usually includes a pair of baggy trousers but give it a little swagger with a pair of slim-fit sideline pants. It would be long before all the other fashionable students catch on to this look.
