Name: Alex Ata
Major: Textile/Surface Design
College Fashionista: What are the essentials in a man’s wardrobe?
Alex Ata: A black blazer that is well tailored and make sure it fits just right. A slim fit white button-down and khakis. Shoes make the outfit so Guccis or Ferragamos are a must. My last essential item would be a murse.
CF: If you were on a desert island what three things would you bring?
AA: I would bring sunglasses, a speedo and mandals.
CF: Alex you don’t dress like your typical college student, why is that?
AA: I guess it is the New York attitude. Going to school in New York is very different than going to a normal college. The fashion levels and standards are much higher.
CF: Do you think living in New York has changed your style?
AA: I have always been very into fashion and what I wear. Living in New York makes you very aware of what the current trends are which has definitely affected me.
How To: This Fashionisto’s NYC outfit is spot on. He’s not afraid to pair everyday basics with louder pieces. Grab a pair of classic khakis, you will get so much use out of them!

A great pair of loafers will bring your entire look together. Lastly add some spice to your outfit with an arm party like this Fashionisto did. This look will be sure to have New Yorker's notice your great fashion sense!
