dressed well and make what their wear an extension of themselves. While, many of
them do this without any hiccups, there always are a few who don’t get the ground rules
right and often end up making a mess of themselves by going overboard with their
You can take a tour of any college across any city and in most of them, you would find
women being more fashion conscious than men, especially the way they dress up. One
of the biggest reasons is women often get a chance to choose from a wide range of
colors, fabrics and accessories that are also easily affordable. This is not the case with
clothes or accessories for boys. While college boys often like buying jeans, t-shirts and
other casuals, it is also the time to take a good look at what is trending.
Mentioned below are 4 tips that can help guys in making a bold fashion statement
without breaking the bank –
1. Casual and Athletic Wear: If you are in college you mostly participate in one
game or the other and that is why you should have a wardrobe that is rich in
athletic t-shirts, track pants, sports shoes etc. While big brands can often cost a
lot there are many brands out there that don’t try pretend and have affordable
sticker prices on them. Talking about other casual wears, Gstar Jeans and G
Star Tshirts are very popular amongst the college going kids. Along with shoes,
tshirts and jeans you can also consider having a few baseball caps and some
funky watches; whether you are sporty or not, these accessories go a long way in
making your image.
2. Suit and Ties: You got that right; you need to have these kinds of stuffs in your
wardrobe as you are no more a teenager now and you have to get ready for the
big bad world. Invest as much as you can afford to because the suit that you buy
now, would be with you for a long time to come. Choose something in universal
shades or black or brown that is evergreen and easily mixes and matches; don’t
go for something rare silly like olive. Buy a couple of ties that are just there to
complement your suit and buy a third one, a rather costlier one, meant only for
3. Belts and Shoes: Prefer the leather material; both shoes and belts should be
made of high quality leather to go along with your suit. Of course, you should
spend as much as your budget permits, as these leather accessories and
footwear can be quite costly too.
4. Vest: Soon enough, you will be attending functions and parties that would be
more formal than casual. This would also include the prom night. A nice vest will
go a long way in making your formal appearance look more classy and attractive.
College time is not just about making a wardrobe for casuals but this is also the time
when you can prepare your wardrobe for a future professional life; so keep these
aspects into consideration.
