Dressing every day for class can become a struggle, especially during those bitter winter days. Because of this, many guys (and girls) result to sweatpants and a sweatshirt. Although that look is always acceptable on a college campus, it’s nice to switch it up every once in a while.

The Fashionisto featured here offers an outfit that is both acceptable and comfortable, making it the perfect look for class. A sweater like this feels warm like a sweatshirt but looks like you put some effort into your day, even when you didn’t (Don’t worry I won’t tell your secret). The accents on this sweater, such as the shawl collar and subdued stripes, help it stand out from the other off the rack Christmas sweaters that recently flooded the shelves. Additionally, the shawl collar is extremely popular in menswear currently, and the stripes add a nice texture which differentiates it from the rest.

Since any good student knows that being late for class in unacceptable, this Fashionisto’s wrist watch poses as both functional and stylish. A wrist watch gives any outfit a more sophisticated look. His watch caught my eye because of the visible gears through the glass face. It’s safe to say that I know what makes this watch tick. The small details like those on his watch spruce up any ordinary everyday outfit.

Overall, an outfit like this is sure to catch the attention of other classmates and even the professor. Not to mention that when you dress better, you feel better. Stripping of those baggy sweats will surely help you wake up for those classes and feel confident all day long.

One Simple Change: This Fashionisto told me he interns in a lab and has to look professional. In order to make this outfit acceptable for his internship, replace your old kicks with a nice pair of dress shoes. That quick fix will be sure turn your look from schoolboy to businessman instantly.
