Boys, fall is fast approaching! That means it’s time to put the lazy summer styles behind you and start gearing up for chillier weather. For a lot of you, the first day back at school will still have warmer weather, with a slight breeze at night. This calls for a transition outfit, including both summer and fall pieces. AJ, a student at Belmont University in Nashville, created the outfit above, which is perfect for the first day back! AJ is sporting a light wash denim button down shirt from Cotton On, Levi Jeans, and classic black Doc Marten combat boots. This creates a look that is both classic and trendy.
For fall, denim on denim is a perfect look to experiment with. Incorporating two different washes of denim usually looks best and is easier for most guys to pull off. Like AJ, a lighter wash on top and darker wash on the bottom really pulls the look together. I would suggest this when trying denim-on-denim for the first time.
Also, there are many options that are appropriate for fall shoes. A boys shoes can be extremely expressive, so make sure to choose a pair that really compliments your personality. Some shoes that I love for fall are brown suede boots, combat boots (as worn above), or classic Vans canvas sneakers.
One thing I love about AJ’s outfit is a slight pattern on his shirt. Buttoning up the shirt the whole way adds a cool vibe and focuses the eye on the simple pattern featured on the shirt. Guys everywhere have been seen sporting this “fully buttoned up” look, and I have to say- I really dig it!
Guys, be bold! Don’t be scared to sport your unique look on campus this fall. Who knows who’s eye you may catch!
