Best Clothes to Wear to College

Every girl on this planet dreads her first day in college whether she accepts it or not. There is only one thing that leads to this dreading – what will I wear on the first day? This question has troubled many girls and given them sleepless nights, I agree. This article will perfectly clear all the doubts you have ever had on what you should be wearing to college. Before you start making plans to make some changes to your wardrobe, there are a few things you should consider. ‘What suits you best?’ This is a very important question as depending on this, we will decide what can be the best clothes for you to wear to college. Then again, you have to understand that college is all about being a student and you cannot wear anything that will make you look older than your age. Yes, some guys would like that but for the ladies, it’s a strict no-no. Avoid everything that will make you stand out of the crowd, as chances are you won’t be ‘in’ it for long then. Yes, you’ve got to be different, but this is how you’re going to do it!

What You Should Wear to College?

Shirts
Your shirts are going to be a very important part of your wardrobe as this is what people notice first. If you live in a town that is blessed with too much of sun, stick to wearing light colored simple tees. Avoid too much of sleeveless as this would give you a horrible tan in the long run. Never wear anything that shines too much. On those lazy days you can pull on a cardigan, but make sure you don’t make this your habit. For accessories throughout the year, choose between stoles, mufflers, gloves and shrugs as and when the weather permits or demands. None of these should be more prominent than the shirt/sweater you wear.

Denims and Pants
Since it’s hot most of the year, once every week, you can wear a skirt or some casual shorts to let your legs breathe. Khadi and cotton pants look cool too. During the winters, stick to denims (no boot cuts and only black or blue) and a few well designed yet, simple pants. Avoid shorts completely. These would show the occasional goose bumps that you would get. If you have to attend just a sport or music class, you can dress in pajamas too. Once in a while, it’s important to you let yourself free!

Footwear
When it comes to footwear, you have to be careful. You might think it is cool to wear those red pumps, isn’t it? They look so hot after all. But then, NO! You are not attending a party! Sneakers are the best option to team up with denims and pants. To give yourself a change sometimes, wear a pair of nice flip flops. With skirts, team up some nice flats. As for the boys, stick to those shoes. You’ll look the best in them!

Drop Dead Gorgeous
Once in a while, you need to show just how gorgeous you are! On days that need a celebration, a birthday maybe, dress up just the way you want. Get those pumps out (finally!) and also get that makeup out. Do your hair just how you want it and wear any color and fabric that you want, even if it shines (finally, again!). On such days, dress to make a statement. Get out all the accessories from the closet as well and make sure you enough of them on you. As for the guys, will you even bother?

These tips on choosing your college wear are very important as most people are a little low on their fashion quotient at that age. You like something, you pick it up and come to college all geared up, ready to flaunt what you shouldn’t be. You have enough trendy teen clothing to choose from; choose well. Throughout your college days, stick to simplicity. Every fashion trend fits different age groups differently. Don’t try to imitate a super model on the cover of your favorite magazine, you may look too overdone for a student. Always, for your entire life, focus on ‘style’. As they say, Keep It Stylish.

Wearing Cufflinks

Cufflinks used to be reserved for men of noble descent. Later, they became the trademark accessory for high-ranking officials, uber-rich businessmen, and the likes. However, times have changed since then, and so have the patrons of this accessory. Today, cufflinks can be worn by anyone, irrespective of his age or occupation. They have become a must-have jewelry item in men’s formal clothing. Studs and cufflinks are an epitome of men’s fashion these days. So, in case you wish to flaunt them on your wrists, make sure you know the proper way. Few things are more off-putting than a failed attempt at sophistication.

Guide to Wearing Cufflinks

Before you think of the accessories, you should have shirts that go well with them. One of the most essential requirements for wearing cufflinks is a shirt with French or double cuffs. Simply put, these are shirts that have no buttons on the cuffs. If you also intend to wear studs, you will have to get a formal dress shirt without buttons on the wrists.
– Fold back the cuffs so that they lie flat and even at the end of the sleeves.
– Bring the two ends of the cuffs together, so that the holes coincide with each other.
– Now insert the cufflink through the two holes.
– The two cuffs should lie side by side, touching each other. This is a bit different from the buttonhole arrangement that you have on regular shirts, wherein the button goes inside the hole, and one cuff overlaps the other.
– Fasten the cufflink according to its attachment, and repeat the procedure for the other hand.
– Depending upon the fastening attachment, cufflinks are classified as bullet back closure, whale back closure, fixed backing, chain link, reversible, and ball return.
– Some of them have a finished surface on only one side.

When to Wear

You can wear cufflinks whenever you wish, as long as you have an appropriate shirt. However, they are generally not recommended for daily use. Weddings, parties, and similar occasions highlight their beauty. Although you can also wear them for funerals, you need to be careful with their look; you must not wear ones that are too flamboyant, and choose ones that go with the sombre atmosphere. Some people even wear them to pubs and dance parties. In that case, make sure they are securely in place, so that you don’t lose it while showing off your dance moves. Earlier, it was believed that cufflinks were reserved only for older men. However, these days, even young men in their twenties going out for a routine night out flaunt this jewelry with elan.

How to Choose

While picking cufflinks, you need to take into account the tone of the occasion and your overall attire. It is a norm to match them with your belt, watch, and tie. Although it is very difficult to find perfectly matching cufflinks, you should at least match the metal and pattern with your belt buckle.

They are available in many materials, designs and styles. Plain gold or silver cufflinks are ideal for grim occasions like funeral. Wooden or seashell cufflinks with colorful and bold designs are great for festivals and parties. Choose the fastening attachment according to your convenience and preference for finish.

Cufflinks take a bit of getting used to, but they can sure add an element of bling to men’s clothing. A great pair can indeed make you stand apart from the crowd.
