TREND: Weekend Getaway

Although summer is supposed to be a time we can relax and spend time outdoors with friends, many of us students are enrolled in summer classes, working and interning along with trying to keep up a social life.   While we may be super busy running around campus, it doesn’t mean we can’t dress as if we’re jetting off for the weekend, especially when Lake Michigan is just a few steps away.

I caught this Fashionisto on his way out from class looking casual, yet chic. His style is almost sailor meets safari tour guide, and I absolutely love it!  I love how he kept his look simple by primarily wearing neutral colors, and the fact that he was carrying a trendy, yet functional bag to carry all of his essentials.   If you’re one who has questioned the “man” bag/purse, try a bag that can be multi functional and work or school appropriate, like this one in cognac. This Fashionisto chose to wear a white, button down shirt with a pair of blue denim skinny jeans and tan boat shoes.  A great summer staple is a white button down, and with the weather heating up slowly but surely, linen is the way to go.  Try the Gap's Linen military shirt in white for a lightweight alternative on sale for just $41.99.  The blue and white-striped scarf is a great touch on the nautical trend, without going overboard.  Another trend, which this Fashionisto worked into his look, is the straw fedora, which I have been spotting almost everywhere I go and is a must have this summer for Fashionistas as well!

Now, don’t forget to grab your favorite pair of shades to complete the look!
