Freshman fashion - college cool on a budget
Not exactly. It’s one thing to show up in class; it’s another to look like a class act. Given you’ve spent the past five years in a school uniform, some freshman fashion tips are in order.
So, what’s on the syllabus? If the autumn/winter 13 runways are any indication, houndstooth scarves, tweed jackets, cable knits and preppy plaid are all hot subjects. Collegiate chic, if you will. Unless you’ve got an Ivy League trust fund to bank roll a designer wardrobe, a crash course in fashion math will help greatly.
The fundamental principle underpinning any campus trousseau is comfort: the absence of which limits your ability to do most activities; be it sprinting to a Beowulf lecture or sprinting to the college bar for happy hour.
Consider yourself warned.
