TREND: Urban Prepster

Fashionistas and girly style get tons of CollegeFashionista press, but that doesn’t mean the boys don’t look fab. Fortunately, Fashionistos at IU are dressing to impress – and finally getting the attention they deserve.

Fashionisto Andrew John Butash is pictured wearing a plaid button-up with his Brooks Bothers vest. Great-fitting jeans from Levi and Sperry Top-Sider ‘boat shoes’ help complete his spring outfit. With this streamlined look, there’s no need to accessorize like crazy – a classic watch and cool shades do the trick.

Take some advice from J.Crew: this classic retailer never disappoints with its well-tailored basics and fresh take on cool. Try pulling a few items from their ‘Always List’. These are all-time favorites updated for today, and wearing any of these pieces is a great way to step up your preppy look.

More than ever, popular brands are finding ways to personalize your own classic favorites. Try the ‘create your own’ feature at Ralph Lauren to update your polos. Options like bright colors and the oversized logo are fresh, contemporary styles for now. For sunglasses, try RayBan. Bringing us great frames since 1937, Ray-Ban lets you pick your favorite styles and colors, and recommends the shades they think suit you best.

Hint: There’s always room for a fun, unexpected detail, even if your style is classic. Try a nautical-themed belt to add some subtle charm to your look.
