STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Invest in the Vest

Patagonia, known for outdoorsy apparel and a strong commitment to the environment, is making its way from the mountaintops to college campuses.

Today’s Fashionisto puts a new spin on the prepster look by swapping out a sweater vest for the Patagonia Classic Retro-X. The gray fleece vest instantly transforms his outfit into an age-appropriate timeless balance of trendy and classic.

The juxtaposition between his Harvie & Hudson shirt and the vest is the perfect combination for studying in the library and attending classes. The look is comfortable enough to throw a football around in the quad, but can still be worn to his Young Investors Club meeting afterwards.

His L.L.Bean corduroys provide extra warmth for a cold and dreary Washington, D.C. day. The corduroys are more carefree than a pair of khakis or chinos, but more dressed up than a simple pair of jeans. Also of note is his Timex field watch. The interchangeable strap add a burst of color to the neutral vest.

The look isn’t just limited to the boys though! Fleece vests can also be implemented into girls’ wardrobes. Play with the boys without looking like a boy by accessorizing. Complement the outdoorsy vest with feminine accessories like a statement necklace from Kate Spade or a pair of Tory Burch Reva ballerina flats.
