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

Year: Sophomore

Major: Journalism

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?

PS: I read fashion blogs like Unabashedly Prep and I keep up with magazines like GQ and Details.

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.
