Packing for college can be an extremely difficult task. You are forced to consider what you will be wearing months from move-in day, and you have to consider all sorts of diverse events that you may be attending. This Fashionisto was smart when choosing to pack a well-tailored suit when coming to college. Many people may think events that require a suit rarely come up when in the university setting, but you may be surprised at the practicality of having a classic suit on hand in the dorm room closet. A suit can be the ideal outfit of choice for any event from a fraternity formal, all the way to an interview for a co-op or internship.
This Fashionisto is sporting a gray suit, plaid tie, classic white button-down and black wingtips to accent his black belt. It can sometimes be a daunting task to find a suit that is both flattering and resembles your personal style. Suits are not like T-shirts that come in small, medium and large. They are a man’s equivalent to a woman’s fitted gown. Suit styles vary from a thin to wide lapel and have different fits. There are peaked lapels, standard notch lapels, wide peak lapels; the list continues. In this case, this Fashionisto’s suit has a narrow notch lapel.
This gray suit can be accompanied by many different accent colors. He demonstrates this by adding a pop of color with his blue plaid tie. By matching the color of his belt with the color of his shoes, a clean and polished look is achieved. All this Fashionisto needs is confidence, and he is ready to conquer that interview.
Hint: Men, if you are struggling on pairing an appropriate tie with your suit, consider the lapel width. Try to match the width of the tie with the width of the lapel.
