Man Style: Ruben

Here’s a hint, boys: us girls like guys who dress well and who have a distinct style. Take it from the guys at The Midwestyle blog. Now, don’t get the wrong idea. We realize that girls care infinitely more for clothes and fashion than guys do, but a little thoughtfulness never hurt anyone, right? 

Enter Ruben, one of my friends on campus who is from Venezuela, studying political science, and loves thrift stores. We’ve run into each other a few times at the student union recently, and I’ve always thought Ruben has such a great sense of style - why not feature him on my blog? So, please welcome Ruben, the first guy ever to be featured on Re-Mix-Her. Here’s the breakdown:

Button-Up: Thrifted
Jeans: PacSun
Converse: Journey’s
Bracelet: Bought in the Philippines

1. What are your favorite places to shop? 

My favorites places to shop are H&M, Gap, Banana Republic, thrift stores…all around (those are my favorite times).

2. What’s the best part about transitioning from winter to spring?

I think my favorite part about transitioning to spring is that socks are optional. Also, I get to wear shorts.

3. When you get dressed each day, what do you consider as you’re figuring out your look?

I consider where I will be for the day. If I have an art class, I will try to dress in a more comfortable style. If I have a political science class, I will probably try for a more professional look.

4. Describe your style in three words.

Sophisticated. Indie. Foreign.
