This week's featured Fashionisto dons a new take on denim. Mixing dark-wash jeans with a lightweight, light-wash jacket, senior Max Pearl contrasts colors and textiles to make back-to-back blue hues stand apart. With the cold and rain cutting the recent sunshine streak short, dressing in layers is becoming an every day essential. Pearl's summerweight jacket and tee do just this. Paired with a graphic tee from his unique collection and ruby red Doc Marten combat boots, Pearl's ensemble is a great go-to for the dreary days hitting New York City.
