LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Simplicity Works

The warm weather is finally here at Purdue University, and all of the students are ready to ROCK the summer for sure. One of my favorite things about summer is how students match up fun, summer prints and bright colors to create a summer fever. Shorts, graphic T-shirts, skirts and flip flops have been all over campus these days and people cannot wait to show more from their wardrobes. However, not all students choose to go with bright colors to celebrate the arriving of the summer.

I think simplicity is definitely the key and a trend for every season. While I ran into this Fashionisto in front of a coffee shop, his way of dressing just made me feel comfortable. Fashion doesn’t always come in a luxurious package; it might sometimes come in a very comfortable look. If you are too lazy to think about what to wear during this season, tank tops and flip flops are not your only choice. This week’s Fashionisto wasn’t so daring with his accessories. Paired with his dark blue short sleeve button-down shirt is a pair of khaki pants and brown leather shoes. For accessories he is rocking a black, stylish, graphic print sunglasses and a leather messenger bag. By not trying too hard, this Fashionisto has achieved a not so laid back but comfortable look.

Hint: If the Fashionisto wants to keep his simplicity, but he also wants to add something to it. I would suggest the Fasionisto add a belt or a watch. A belt can really add to an ensemble and can also dictate the overall style of one. As we can see, this Fashionisto is a fan of leather products so he could try and incorporate this dark chocolate classic buckle belt from J.Crew which might give his look a more put together feel. On the other hand, he could also add a Timex Easy Reader Limited watch from Urban Outfitters which would seemingly suit him perfectly.
