As college students, there is certain stigma that we all associate class appropriate apparel as being synonymous with sweatpants and hoodies. However, this Fashionisto clearly sets the record straight on classy class wear.
The second most common college misconception is that dressing up means you will look overdressed for the occasion. But, there are few easy dressing rules to abide by that will abolish your chances of looking out of place on campus.
First, like this Fashionisto has done, you must be sure to select a balance of casual and dressy pieces to keep the look from being stuffy or overdone. Remember, this is not a business meeting, this is a classroom setting. The easiest way to achieve this is by selecting one dressy piece that will spiff up your ensemble and then building around that piece.
This Fashionisto has maintained the focus of his outfit in the upper body region with his pin stripe button-down shirt and black satin tie. The textured medium wash jean, grey Van’s sneakers and funky white watch are elements that foster an approachable cool feel to his outfit.
While this Fashionisto regularly wears his glasses, you should opt to wear yours with an outfit like this to enhance your intellectual and studious persona for the day. It is oh so very Clark Kent!
Hint: Do not be afraid to get a little dressed up for your classes! Dressing polished and put together portrays to your classmates and professors that you are serious about yourself and your academic endeavors. Do not forget that there is a difference between evening wear and nice daytime apparel though.
