Here at Pitzer, we are very much about environmental sustainability and consciousness, so going green means taking a proactive choice to respecting and appreciating our environment. This Fashionisto took on a new way of “going green.” His ddark olive green pants really were his statement piece and showed a little love to his “green” surroundings. For fall 2012, green is definitely the trend on the Pitzer College Campus.
This Fashionisto stepped away from the typical and safe denim bottom to get more expressive with the dark olive pant. Those pants were a nice contrast to the light plaid shirt. If you look closely, a few of the lines in the plaid shirt are a similar green to his bottoms. As we know, I am a huge fan of button up shirts and colored bottoms, so this Fashionisto quickly caught my attention.
You can recreate a similar look by trying the Levi’s 510 Green pants sold at Urban Outiffters, a plaid shirt with a hint of green and white tennis shoes or the new Nike Cholorophyll Air Trainers (only sold pre-sale on this Japanese website).
Hint: To make it more personal—throw on your favorite hat on top, tuck in the shirt, add your favorite belt or add your favorite piece of jewelry for just a simple touch. How will you “go green” for the fall?
I hate to say it but it’s getting to be that time of year when retailers are taking away their summer goodies and bringing out the fall essentials. When I walk through clothing stores I can’t believe how fast the market changes and actually how fast time has flown. Anyway, as the smart shopper that I am (or the smart shopper I like to think that I am), I try to keep my eyes peeled for pieces that can be used in many seasonal wardrobes. Clothing like this is a huge plus for those of us in college or fresh out of college who are still shopping on a budget.
I spotted this Fashionisto, a fellow college blogger, in the Financial District down by the South Street Seaport. Although the weather has been unbearably humid again, this Fashionisto looked extra sharp in his long green pants. Sporting the forest green hue is pretty bossy in the heat but he made the look casual and breezy pairing it with a light cotton V-neck. Color blocking can be challenging, but this Fashionisto pulled it off by using subtler hues. Additionally he is wearing suede caramel brown shoes, that off-set the dark colors of his digs in a complementary way.
The pants are a great piece to hold onto for the transition into fall. This look could easily be transformed for something worn in chillier weather by wearing a chunky knit sweater or a lighter fabric hoodie.
If you’re looking to get a similar pair of green pants, check out this pair from Daniele Alessandrini. If green isn’t your color maybe these electric blue Levi’s will do the trick (another great trans-seasonal color). Find one of your favorite colored plain V-necks that would not clash with your new pants and try a pair of TOMS Suede Cordones on for size.
Hint: Make the look even more versatile and use the pants as a more formal piece in your wardrobe. Try finding a dark belt, a subtly patterned button down and a colored knit tie and you’ve got a unique outfit for nightwear.
