Guidance counselor Daniel Skelton sports a sweater, khakis and tie each from Banana Republic along with a dress shirt from Express Jan. 27.

Between coaching the Boys Varsity Soccer team, Baltimore Armor teams and chasing after his three kids, counselor Daniel Skelton still finds time to dress with style. Staff writer Emily Levitt sat down with Skelton to discuss his clothing inspiration and typical look.

Q: What is your favorite thing to wear?
A: For work, I typically shop at Banana Republic, Express or J. Crew. I do a typical button-up-tie-and-sweater kind of deal. When I coach for soccer, I wear a lot of Under Armor clothing typically because I like the way it fits.

Q: Would you say that your fashion sense reflects your personality?
A: I guess so, yes. I like to wear brighter colors and things that are vibrant because I like to think that I’m a pretty positive and outgoing person.

Q: How have your kids impacted what you wear?
A: I have to be a little more conscious especially with having young kids. My one-year-old son very easily gets food all over me so I have to be a little bit more careful. I may choose to wear something a little bit darker so that I can afford to get something on it.

Q: Do you have any celebrities whose style influences you?
A:There’s a lot of soccer players that I watch, and I think that my style reflects a lot of what the European soccer players wear.
