Hey there! I know this might be sort of late but a lot of people until now, has been asking for tips and basically help on their wardrobe for school, and been requesting ever since summer for me to make an entry about it. So being the kind person that I am—weeeeeeeehhhhh haha— Here’s a round up of 15 wardrobe pieces that I think are essential for the school season for all my college bros out there.
I wanna clarify though that the list is randomly arranged and that all are based only on my opinion. I am no fashion guru or whatsoever and these are all just some suggestions I want to share, so feel free to disagree on the things you’re about to read :) oh and I’m also open for suggestions or comments, If you think I miss something on the list, feel free to hit the comment box below!
It’s a staple for any guy to own at least one of this. A classic white crewneck shirt is the most basic and probably one of the most important pieces of clothing in your wardrobe. It is also very versatile, team it with the right kind of clothes and your basic tee can go from school casual to formal.
This one’s a no-brainer, just like the crewneck tee, a white button-down polo is a classic staple to every guy’s wardrobe. In the past, men choose this piece of clothing to look like one of those stylish Milanese men, but now most sport this versatile piece so they can go from looking sharp in school to bar-hopping with friends. Happy Thursday ready lol
You absolutely cannot go wrong with a plain pair of chinos. These pants are as comfortable as your regular type of jeans, but have a more dressed-up look. It can be dressed up or down, and can work with basically anything inside your wardrobe. Fit is important though, unless you want to look like a remnant of the dotcom era.
…or what most people call short shorts for guys hahaha Preferably in chinos, a classic pair of this kind of shorts can go with anything. Wear them with simple pieces like a t-shirt or a sweater for a laid back and comfortable look, or add some classy items like loafers or a collared shirt if you want to look sharp & dapper inside the campus. Just make sure it doesn’t reveal half of your hairy thighs, okay? lol
tip: for short guys—like me lol— Keep your shorts above the knee it will make you look like you have longer legs, and add a few inches to your height. having shorts come down too far past your knees will give the illusion that you are even shorter than your real height.
Before you dwell on the fact that it’s a struggle getting them on, can restrict some movements and would barely give breathing space ‘down there’ haha Think about how skinny jeans can make your legs look slimmer and the bottom sexy. Most say, Guys who wear skinny jeans are more likely to attract attention in a party than the ones who don’t. It exhibits ones fashion sense and a lot of girls now are attracted to guys who dress up well. so yeah, I think that’s enough reason to get you into those jeans lol
The go-to piece for a sure slacker outfit. I always feel like throwing one of this on can instantly make you look cooler, I don’t know why, maybe it’s just me haha but anyway, much like a pair of jeans, a denim jacket is light enough to wear on a normal day at school, but warm enough to get you through the coolest parts like a sudden rainfall or your classroom’s AC on full blast or your seat mate bragging about how cool his new pair of shoes are, kidding!! hahaha
yet another no-brainer. This shoes can go with anything, designer sneakers may have been all the rage for several seasons but none of them combine style and street cred like Chuck Taylors. High-cut or low-cut, these sneakers are as comfortable as your gym shoes, but look much more stylish. Cool thing about this pair is that, the dirtier it becomes, the cooler looking it gets!
Nothing can make you look like a university jock better than a good ol’ raglan shirt. This shirt has too cool for school written all over it, throw in those shades and whip up that bed hair and you’re troy bolton in an instant—but let’s not get too carried away, okay haha Just remember to get the basic or as much as possible the plain ones. Getting one of those with Never Give Up or poorly done Jack daniel’s print can guarantee to make you look like …you do the math jejejejejeje
Yes this may look like something that came out of a farmer’s closet, but with proper styling, this classic can make you look effortlessly cool. the Henley shirt has the comfort level of your average T-shirt, but you’ll look more put-together while wearing it.
We live in a tropical country and I know some of you might disagree, but I think any guy should have this in their closet, especially one in neutral, because you will have endless use for it. Not only is it very comfy—well not in the blazing sun, but it is actually easy to style and can make one look effortlessly cool in an instant. This wardrobe staple is diverse. It can be worn alone, or layered with a button-down shirt or even a wrap-around
This one never fails to stir up images relating to the grunge movement that swept through the 90s. However, these days it is the perfect easy to throw on styling item that is great for those typical school days turned into nights of vinyl records and beer buckets. Flannel shirts have unlimited styling options where you can wear it buttoned up with jeans, loose over a basic tee, as a layering piece under a denim jacket, or simply a wrap-around. whatever you may choose, you’ll always look like you’re up for a chill good time.
The cardigan is both versatile and fashion-forward. One thing I like about cardigans is that you can layer it over almost any shirt. I believe you don’t need to have a lot of this, having at least one or two basic cardigans in neutrals can already give you tons of great outfit options.
No, I’m not referring to the ‘folded’ cuff—though that’s also an essential. This may be new to some, but chances are, you’ve already came across a guy in your school wearing one of this. It may look like your typical joggers, but with the right styling, this trousers can instantly make any outfit of yours look twice as cool. It’s a mash-up of the chinos and your jogging pants, and best thing is that you get the benefits of the two, now that’s pure comfort without compromising style!
You might have already seen one of this in your dad’s shoe closet, but believe me—and your dad—when I say that this classic pair ain’t just for the desert, but it’s also best fitted inside your campus. They’re more weather-proof than your sneakers, but still appear somewhat dressy. You can even trade your dress shoes to this if you want to add a hint of casual in your formal wear.
Once upon a time, the varsity jacket was just considered a plain old jacket athletes wear when they’re cold or before they hit the court or a less-obvious way to brag about your university—kidding! haha. anyway fast forward to 2014 where it’s whole mainstream movement is history and with it’s image dragged down and tarnished—well here in our country. A lot of people may not want to risk being called the ‘J’ word but I still believe its worth it. It’s less tougher than a biker jacket and it’s less coy than a boyfriend sweater(for the girls), the varsity jacket for me will always be a grab-and-go piece whenever you are up for a good time.
