FASHIONISTO SPOTLIGHT: Josh Crampsey

Put those regular wash skinnies and khakis aside because colored jeans and pants are all the rage this fall! Bright red, mustard yellow, electric blue and burgundy are just a few of the popular colors that Fashionista/os are rocking from the waist down. This Fashionisto tends to wear bold colors, and so it was a no-brainer for him to sport a pair of bright red jeans on a lazy Sunday. He keeps the look casual with a scoop neck top layered under a navy blue button-down, sneakers, and his signature hipster glasses. D&G fall 2011 menswear collection also dressed down the colored pant trend with sweaters, graphic tees, winter vests, plaid button-downs, and high-tops.

Name: Josh Crampsey

Major: Advertising

Year: Sophomore

CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your style?

Josh Crampsey: My style varies according to the season and my mood, but generally it has an emphasis on color contrasts with some hipster leanings. It's always evolving, though, so it's hard to pinpoint.

CF: What is your favorite part of your outfit and why?

JC: I'm pretty freaking fond of my red pants. I make an effort to incorporate bold colors into my wardrobe and they really do a lot to keep my personal style unique.

CF: What celebrities do you look to for style inspiration?

JC: I can only hope to one day rock a tank top as perfectly as Ryan Gosling does. I stick to his usual tank and shorts combo for casual settings and sometimes class it up like Adam Scott's character on Parks and Recreation for more formal occasions.

CF: What are you looking forward to wearing in Boston this fall?

JC: It'll be nice to break out all my sweaters and try to figure out a way to do something interesting with them. I haven't touched a cardigan or vest since April, so I'm looking forward to adding those back as regular staples.

How To: This Fashionisto got his bright red jeans from Urban Outfitters, but if you dare to go bolder this season try these mustard yellow skinnies by ASOS. Of course, this trend is popular in womenswear as well. Fashionistas, check out these emerald ankle-grazing skinnies by J Brand. Colored jeans and pants are the perfect fashion wake up calls for early morning classes. Just roll out of bed and into this trend, and throw on a comfy tee or cotton button-down along with a pair of beat up Chucks!
