Bring out the bright and bold colors, Fashionistas/os, because spring has finally sprung! Students are starting to shy away from their usual go-to favorite colors (black, black and black) in favor of brighter hues, and this Fashionisto was certainly ready for the warmer weather and spring sun.
When I spotted this Fashionisto, I immediately knew I had to stop and photograph him. Sporting the preppiest of attire, this Fashionista embraced a classic and put-together look that was perfect for the weekend. Wearing a Vineyard Vines quarter-zip in Antiqua green, he looked perfect for spring. The bright color of the pullover contrasted nicely with the navy and white lining around his collar, and the light layer was ideal for keeping warm in the spring.
Of course, nothing screams “I’m ready for the weekend” like a pair of martini-glass shorts. Matching his pullover to the subtle green stitching in the olives on the embroidered shorts, this Fashionisto perfectly matched the two items. The two colors were a bold move; however, they worked perfectly together because of the stitching and because of the slightly subdued tones of both colors.
Finally, this Fashionisto wore a pair of brown Sperry Top-Sider boat shoes. The leather shoes, an always-popular choice of footwear on campus, looked great with the preppy outfit and ensured that this Fashionisto would be ready for any weekend festivities.
One Simple Change: While a full martini glass is ideal for the weekend, try swapping out the embroidered shorts for a solid pair when headed to class. A pair of lightweight “dusty berry” chinos are perfect for the spring.
