As everyone heads back to college around this time, we figure that we should hit ’em up with a look that they can appreciate. We also wanted to make sure that it was a price they could appreciate. Here is the college wardrobe on the college budget…
We made sure that no piece was over $100 so that the look really is college friendly. The duffle coat is one of the most classic prepster items that you would have seen everywhere on college campuses back in the day. This one by the British brand Topman is half way between a jacket and sweatshirt that will give you a little more sophistication than all of those guys wearing their “_________ University” hoodies. The plaid shirt by Gap is also a great call as the color and pattern work perfectly for the fall. It’s light and soft so you can be comfy during that 9am lecture. Levis 514 jeans are perfect for guys who are hoping to look a little smarter than their baggy-jeans-wearing buddies. Another smart choice is the boot boat shoe by Asos. A lot of times people struggle with the design of this type of shoe, but Asos has kept it simple, which makes it a perfect choice for the fall. If you’re really trying to up the ante, look for a nice wool scarf in classic colors. This one by J. Press has college written all over it.
