With the stress of school, jobs and life in general, it’s important to reassure our parents that we haven’t completely fallen apart. When my parents come to visit for Parent’s Weekend, I go the extra mile to look as though I’m balancing all the college struggles. A well constructed outfit is key in this equation.
When dressing for a weekend with your parents, it’s important to put a tasteful outfit together that embodies sophistication. High-waisted jeans and shorts have reached stores like a wildfire and who says they are just for Fashionistas? What I love about this Fashionisto’s outfit is the vintage vibe it gives off. His high-waisted jeans pair perfectly with his tucked in, striped shirt, creating a simple, clean look to impress your worried parents.
I recently discovered Warby Parker, an eyewear company that designs, manufactures and sells its unique, vintage inspired products directly to online customers. This Fashionisto is wearing a prescription frame designed by this up-and-coming company that emphasizes his personality and style. For trendy college students, I highly suggest ordering a pair of glasses from Warby Parker. Besides, parents love when their college student appears studious, even when we might not always be.
One Simple Change: Grab a black leather jacket for a late night walk around campus and a dinner full of catching up with your parents. A leather jacket will only add to the vintage inspiration behind your look, all while keeping up with current fashion trends.
