When being in classrooms all day, and especially with the heat cranking, the easiest thing to do is layer. Wearing a comfy sweater with a long sleeve T-shirt or even a button-down, can be a great way to be comfortable while still looking fabulous.
This Fashionisto paired a J.Crew cable knit sweater with a simple white Ralph Lauren polo, 7 For All Mankind jeans and Johnston and Murphy boots (similar here). You never know when you might have a meeting with a professor or a run in with a friend, so having a sharp sweater is important. Cardigans are a great option but a simple v-neck sweater or half zip can be just as nice. The key is to find a sweater that can transform from class to anywhere.
Good jeans are a necessity for men not only to look good, but to be comfortable. Especially when sitting in class, you want to be comfortable, but still look presentable. GQ did a guide for men to help them find jeans that fit well and the front runners included Acne, Hudson Jeans and 7 For All Mankind, like our Fashionisto. I prefer dark wash on men because they are flattering and more masculine.
Boots and shoes in general for men is a very personal thing because you can tell a lot about a man from his shoes. Certain shoes send different signals, where a brown suede boot sends more of a put together message, rather then sneakers which give the idea of hitting the gym.
Hint: A down vest is a great investment! Whether you are layering in the fall, winter, or spring, it’s a transitional piece you can have for years.
