I spotted this preppy Fashionisto rocking a casual yet put together outfit during the start of finals week. I loved how he wore understated colors but added a pop of color with his ribbon belt. His simple black sweater is a great piece because he can incorporate it into almost any outfit. Rather than wear gym shorts or sweatpants — an unfortunate trend seen on this campus — he opted for a cleaner look and wore khaki shorts. Adam also wore a pair of ASV Mariner II Sperry Top-Siders. I am obsessed with this classic shoe and love when men can rock boat shoes. Adam and I talked about his preppy style, his signature Ray-Bans, his favorite brand and a trend he hopes to see this spring.

How To: To recreate Adam's preppy spring look invest in a pair of khaki shorts. Adam is wearing 11″ Stanton shorts from J.Crew. A note to Fashionistas: we can feminize Adam's look by finding similar pieces meant for women. For example, check out these 3″ Chino shorts from J.Crew. They come in a variety of colors, and are extremely versatile for spring and summer. Accessorize with a bright ribbon belt. Personally, I love the Vineyard Vines Grosgrain belt. It's a great way to add a nostalgic feel to any outfit. Adam's sweater is a basic piece that every Fashionisto should have in his closet. A fun way to take the simple black sweater trend and vamp it up is to add a little color. This sweater from Urban Outfitters is unique because of the two red stripes that stand out on the black fabric. Finally, put on your favorite sunglasses and a pair of Sperry Top-Siders and you're ready to ace your finals.
