For all of those college students who want to look a little better than their classmates, but don’t want to get called out on over-dressing, this one’s for you.
It’s great to be the most stylish kid in school, but if you’re getting made fun of for trying too hard, there’s something wrong. This is a great casual outfit that might get you a compliment or two, but won’t have the entire dining hall staring at you. A nice flannel shirt and cords are a perfect fall combo and these two options are some of our favorite on the market. Put on some tweed desert boots that are both wearable and stylish without being in-your-face. Top it off with the brilliant J. Crew Shawl Collar Pullover to show you know a little more than your fellow man. Carry your laptop in a gorgeous Hard Graft sleeve and you’ll catch the eye of all your fellow fashionistos. Finally, spritz on a very faint splash of the new Black Fleece cologne for when you’re getting up-close-and-personal with your “study buddy” in the library.
