I have now been back in Charlottesville for two weeks of summer school – I just finished both of my midterm exams today, so now I get to relax! I found this Fashionisto when I was leaving my class, and could not help but ask him for a few quick pictures. He seems to be not only ready for school, but also ready for any after school professional activity such as an internship or job.
He is wearing some dark-washed jeans paired with a reddish-brown leather belt. Then, he has a light blue button-down shirt with sleeves cuffed to elbow length. He also has a gray and white floral tie, which is tucked underneath a dark gray, buttoned vest. For his shoes, he is wearing a pair of gray canvas Converse that keep his style relaxed and still functional for lots of campus walking! Finally, to bring it all together he has a very useful canvas messenger bag with red embellishments and multiple pockets. This is perfect because he can stuff anything he needs for school or work in it – as they say, form follows function!
I love that he has everything necessary for school and his job or internship, yet he still doesn’t look pretentious or overdressed because it is such a functional outfit.
Hint: Match dark-washed jeans with a button-down of a color of your choice, and to “tie it together” add a similar colored tie. Then, if you want to go for the extra-refined look, add in a vest like his, and the outfit will look great!
