Best Fashion Tips For College Guys
1. Budget & Practicality
In our college life, we all have a low budget and we cannot spend all our money just to buy outfits, so be practical about it and try to meet your needs in that limited budget.
For budget shopping, you should always follow a few things so that your shopping is done correctly :
(a) Make a Shopping List –
All men have a bad habit that we go to the shop and then we think about what to buy but it is not the right way of shopping.
If you want to use your money properly, then you have to do a little more work.
Don’t ruin your money, always spend according to your needs, and be logical about fashion and dressing.
Make a proper shopping list, in which things are arranged according to your needs and practicality, giving you a clear idea of what to buy next.
(b) Wait For Sales –
So, when you got the list of all the items you need to buy, you should now wait for the sales.
Generally, When you buy a shirt (for example) from a shop, mall, or showroom, it costs you heavy but the same thing gets cheaper when you buy that during the sale.
Therefore, you should buy outfits and other fashion accessories during the sales and thus you will save a lot of your money.
Nowadays, there are a lot of deals almost every month, you just need to do research.
(c) Bulk Shopping –
While shopping, you have to take care of all those things that can save your money and you do not have to compromise with the quality also.
Whenever you buy things in bulk, whether, from the store or online, you get some additional benefit from it.
You will find many offers online, in which you get a pack of 3-4 or more t-shirts, socks, shirts, etc, which you find very cheap but when you buy a single piece, it will cost you almost double.
So, items like t-shirts, shirts, socks, etc, you should always buy in packs.
You can also collect money with your friends and order in bulk, this will benefit you and your friends also.
(d) Maintain Quality –
Whenever you buy shoes or clothes, you should always take care of them.
Maintain their quality, otherwise, your investments will make no sense if they only last for 1-2 months.
Do not wash your clothes every day, dry clean them when needed.
Clean your shoes every day, so that they do not lose the charm.
Layering is the most impressive and attractive way of dressing.
This increases the overall maturity factor of your style.
I know layering is quite common now but it is just as cool and stylish.
Apart from this, layering has huge dressing advantages especially for skinny boys as they feel uneasy in half-sleeve t-shirts and also cannot rely on just plain shirts and full sleeve shirts.
Layering makes your look a little more fascinating and stylish.
In winter, you can wear different types of jackets, cardigans, and shrugs but in summer it is not that easy.
So here, I recommend you my top 2 three summer-friendly layering styles –
(a) Flannel Shirt –
Not every plaid shirt is a flannel shirt. A flannel shirt is made of a soft fabric which is called “flannel”.
Flannel is a blend of cotton, wool, and synthetic fabric.
Usually, people only wear a flannel shirt in winter because it is a bit thick fabric, but you can wear it comfortably throughout the year because a specialty of flannel is that it keeps you warm in winter and cool in summer.
So you must use a flannel shirt for layering, it looks very attractive and stylish and it is also budget-friendly.
(b) Denim –
Denim is also one of the best fabric for layering, it looks premium and elegant.
You can use a denim jacket or denim shirt for layering, both of which look classy.
Denim is such a fabric that when you wear a denim jacket/shirt over a t-shirt/shirt, it adds maturity and charm to your overall look.
If you live in a very hot country, it may be uncomfortable for you to wear denim in summer, so you can also buy Chambray as an alternative to denim.
Chambray is a very lightweight fabric that looks exactly like denim.
3. Watches & Shoes
If you buy budget-friendly outfits but you take care of them properly, no one can say that those clothes are cheap but when you don’t spend enough on a watch or shoes, then indirectly you are just ruining your money.
If you buy a good quality wristwatch instead of buying four cheap watches, that one watch will last longer than those four cheap watches.
Watches and shoes are such things in which you should never skimp.
Apart from this, it will spoil your look too.
you can buy decent quality clothes on a low budget but not shoes and watches.
So better than buying cheap, save some money and spend on good quality shoes and wristwatches.
They will make you’re whole look attractive as well as last for a long time, it will not be the misuse of your money and you will get a lot of praise from your friends too.
In your school life, you can carry any school bag, it does not matter but in college, when you have to take care of every little thing because you are no longer a kid, so you should carry an elegant backpack.
At the same time, you also have to keep in mind that your backpack is not bulky because you are not going to carry a lot of books in college.
The impact of your backpack falls directly on your appearance because it is with you most of the time.
Imagine you are wearing a stylish outfit and a nice pair of shoes but your bag is quite crappy, then it will easily spoil your entire look.
So if you are a college student, then you should buy a plain, elegant, and slim backpack.
If you spend in a simple and classic looking leather backpack, it will just look excellent and professional and with the leather backpack, you will look wonderful, mature, and stylish too.
I recommend only two solid colors, which are black and brown.
In college, we have many top-wear options such as t-shirts, shirts, jackets, sweaters, etc but when it comes to bottom-wear, most guys just wear jeans.
If you want to level up your college dressing then you have to explore fashion every day and experiment with your style.
There are lots of elegant casual bottom-wear options that you can wear to your college and some of them are –
(a) Chinos –
Chinos are made of cotton. They look tremendous in appearance and also you can wear chinos with t-shirts.
When you wear chinos in your college you will look super classy and stylish.
You can pair chinos with shirts and t-shirts easily.
Also, it is a very budget-friendly and comfortable option that you can wear everywhere.
(b) Cargo Pants –
Cargo pants were originally made for the military but later came into fashion due to their rough and tough look.
These pants are made of coarse fabric and have some large pockets.
You can wear cargo pants with a casual shirt and t-shirt and you will look remarkable.
There are cargo pants, cargo trousers, cargo joggers, and cargo shorts that you can easily match with any type of t-shirt.
Cargo pants are also known as combat pants.
(c) Joggers –
Joggers are fashionable and trendy nowadays.
These are also budget-friendly and stylish, so you can easily afford joggers in your college life.
There are many types of joggers like sweatpants, cargo joggers, athletic joggers, etc.
You can wear joggers wherever you want but make sure that you don’t buy bright colored joggers.
Always prefer versatile colors and you will look super versatile.
6. Explore Fashion
After college, we have to wear more formal clothes but from childhood to college, we have mostly worn casual clothes.
So when we go for an interview or internship for the first time, we face a lot of problems in wearing formal outfits perfectly.
In college time, you have a very good opportunity that you can learn formal dressing.
During that time you can learn mature dressing and enhance your fashion sense.
It will make you even more attractive and you will look unique and sophisticated.
The advantage of this will be very much after college when you will be able to make the best formal combinations without making mistakes.
Therefore, start paying attention to formal dressing from your college life.
Observe fashion elements and build your signature style.
Learn about suits, dress shirts, pants, and formal shoes.
Trust me it will help you a lot while enhancing your charm in college life.
