This week I set out to find an ASU Fashionisto. My mission was to find Pedro Silva, a journalism student whose style I'd notice many time while walking around campus. After several attempts of stalking him down, missing him on one occasion as he exited Starbucks, I successful completed my mission when I spotted Silva to no surprise dressed fashionably at the Downtown Phoenix campus pep rally. Silva shared with me his favorite shopping sites and how fashion blogs influence his style.
Name: Pedro Silva
College Fashionista: How would you describe your style?
Pedro Silva: Modern, preppy, very relaxed. I don’t like trendy things; I like basics. If we look at the season’s runway shows we see basic colors- colors that will last a long time.
CF: Where do you draw inspiration for outfits?
CF: What stores do you frequently shop?
PS: Last Chance, J.Crew, Gap, Nordstrom Rack
How To: Silva’s look is indeed basic. His choice in solid colors creates a head-to-toe clean look that’s admirably minimal. For a modern preppy look similar to Silva’s, pair a long sleeve button-down like this aqua lightweight button-down shirt in pinpoint stripe from J. Crew with a pair of lightweight chino club shorts. Finish your look with a pair of Carnaby Lacoste kicks and your modern prep look is complete.
