8 Back to School Fashion Tips

As you wrap your head around getting back to school, consider what your wardrobe says about you. Do you want to roll out of bed and grab the nearest T-shirt on the floor, or do you want to look put-together and make a good impression? Fall is a great time to amp up your style and show your personailty. Follow these back to school fashion tips to get started.

  1. Arm yourself with the basics for everyday wear. Invest in quality jeans that fit well and neutral T-shirts like white, grey and black. There is a difference between a fitted T-shirt and a regular T-shirt. If you can pull off the fitted tee, go for it.
  2. Get a few oxford polos for layering. You can wear them open over a neutral tee or buttoned with a SkinnyTie for days when you feel like kicking it up a notch.
  3. Find a neutral shoe that looks good with jeans. Leave the athletic shoes for gym and buy a pair of Vans or Converse to wear with your jeans. 
  4. Invest in a messenger bag instead of a backpack for a change. A brown neutral bag is a nice alternative to house your laptop and books. It adds a sense of style that is lacking with a regular backpack.
  5. If you wear glasses, experiment with a different look. Pick a frame that works for your face shape and decide on a cool or funky pair.
  6. Size is important. Baggy pants or ill-fitting T-shirts are not flattering. Wear clothing that fits and accentuates your best features. You will instantly look more mature in clothing that is sized correctly.
  7. Accessorize with a nice watch. You don't have to spend a lot of money to find a stylish watch, but you will probably get a lot of use out of a good one. It's the first thing people will notice when they shake your hand.
  8. Invest in a sports jacket. You will need it for networking, an internship, or several other occasions that may come up. A sports jacket also looks great with jeans for dressing up an outfit.

Your style should reflect who you are as a guy. If you don't feel confident in what you're wearing, it will show. Take some time to shop and see what looks good on you. You've got a whole year ahead of you, so start out on the right foot and make a great impression.
