Famed couturier Christian Dior once ruled, “Simplicity, good taste and grooming are the three fundamentals of good dressing and these do not cost money,” and today’s Fashionisto is no exception to the rule. Whilst some people believe that fashion requires spending large amounts of money on clothes, this Fashionisto shows us it is possible to be stylish without the hefty price tag.
Today’s Fashionisto is effortlessly stylish by mixing basic staple pieces to create an easy-to-wear ensemble, perfect for every CollegeFashionisto. The burgundy T-shirt worn under an opened denim shirt is an everyday essential. Teamed with biscuit-coloured chinos, this staple item is a wardrobe must-have every student should own. Similarly, the classic Converse Chuck Taylor sneaker is the definition of an all-purpose shoe. It can be worn almost all year round with a variety of shorts, chinos or a fresh pair of jeans to suit any occasion.
Another aspect of this Fashionisto’s outfit that is worthy of mention is the nautical striped backpack, which is also an essential for any university student. Noted as the spring trend for 2013, stripes were showcased in many international catwalks. Tommy Hilfiger for example sent their models down the runway ruled in stripes from racing and nautical to regimental.
This week, keep it simple with the basics. Take inspiration from this Fashionisto and you too are bound to be a fashion success. If you follow the basic rules of Fashion and are careful to choose the clothes that suit your personality, you are sure to create something special.
Hint: Some may argue that simple is boring and predictable. Prove them otherwise with understated sunglasses worn with confidence like the ones on today’s Fashionisto.
