STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Study in Sophistication

Syllabus week is over and it’s time to start cracking down on your fall semester goals. One of the best ways to make a good first impression on your professors is by dressing well. Sweatpants, a cutoff tee, and/or last night’s hair and makeup doesn’t exactly scream hardworking student. Today’s Fashionisto shows us how to combine preppy pieces to create a crisp yet casual look that will convey a positive attitude. 

Today’s Fashionisto started off the semester in style with an orange polo and patterned blue shorts. He accessorized with a pair of tortoise Ray Ban wayfarers, a classic wristwatch, and his battered Sperry Topsiders to create an effortless ensemble. While this Fashionisto's outfit isn't too formal for the hot August day, he gives off a vibe that stresses he didn't just roll out of bed and stumble to class. 

You can find high quality pieces like today’s Fashionisto is wearing at Southern Tide, a brand with a fresh new look that combines pieces like woven shirts, polos, and watershorts to create a sophisticated yet comfortable line of authentic sportswear. Conveniently enough, Austin Burke Clothiers (my favorite local men's clothing store) in the heart of downtown Iowa City carries Southern Tide apparel, so be sure to support our beloved local businesses in style.
