Style is as much about attitude as it is about what clothes you’re wearing. On a campus dominated by basketball shorts, gym shoes and jerseys, it’s always refreshing to see a boy that actually puts some effort into what he wears. Take this Fashionisto for example. I saw him cruising on his long board through campus and couldn’t help but think that he just looked cool. While his outfit was actually quite simple, it was the way he carried himself with confidence that made his graphic tee and easy fit jeans look stylish.
Sometimes it may seem difficult to dress in a way that is uniquely your own. Graphic tees are a great way to make a statement and bring some of your own personality to an outfit. This Fashionisto’s shirt is something that stood out to me in particular. When I asked him about it, he said it was a shirt that he designed himself and was a tribute to the late Neil Armstrong (a fellow Boilermaker). If you want to make your own statement with a graphic T-shirt, check out places like Urban Outfitters and Topman. For an even more original T-shirt, I recommend you try browsing through thrift stores and getting some genuinely vintage clothing. You can even get this Fashionisto’s exact shirt here.
I’ve always said that accessories can make or break an outfit, and guys are no exception. We’ll start with the shoes. Shoes are always the first thing I notice on a person because I think you can tell a lot about someone based on what shoes they decide to put on. These simple Adidas sneakers add a sense of effortless cool to his outfit. A simple pair of sneakers is a great investment because you can throw them on with just about anything. Lastly, his flat bill hat, simple bracelets and necklaces pull the whole look together. Overall, this Fashionisto radiates an aura that says, “My outfit may not be complicated, but I know I look cool,” and that is what style is all about.
