Being a guy in college is quite simple especially when it comes to dressing. All the clothes you require to survive for a semester plus a blanket and a bedsheet can fit well in just two bags packs.
As ladies stream into campus with suitcases for every category of wearable, guys are pretty comfortable coming with as little as possible.
Nevertheless, there are certain items that are just necessary for every college guy’s wardrobe to remain comfortable all week. They include
3 T-shirts (Simple designs).
Best tops when you are out to meet people. They always look inviting. Get T-shirts that fit your body well and mind their colors and whatever is printed. Wearing pink shirts is a no-no.
3 Shirts (Most preferably white and at least one long-sleeved).
Whenever you want to attend an official meeting or just want to look presentable, shirts are the way to go. White ones can be matched well with various types of trousers and leather shoes. Make sure you have at least 3 of these.
2 or 3 Pairs of jeans (Well-fitting).
You are not a complete man if you don’t have at least a pair of jeans. Jeans define confidence and when you match with sharpshooters like the Texas Rangers; boy, you own the place.
1 or 2 Belts (Neutral colored; brown or black).
Don’t be obsessed with the buckle of a belt, get a neutral-type buckle with a black or brown body. A belt is just meant to hold your pants, hence it should not be the defining feature of your dressing. NB. Neutral buckles don’t scream for attention.
A pair of neutral-colored shoes (Most preferable brown/black).
Loafers are just the best all-weather shoes you can have. They are very comfortable and you can wear them with almost any pants.
A pair of leather shoes.
Not only for official purposes but also for attending lectures. As I explained in the article why you should mind your clothes while in college, putting official clothes when attending class can help you think sharper and remain determined.
Sorry, I had to mention this. Sometimes we focus on the ‘big’ things and forget the ‘tiny’ most important things. It’s very important to have inner wears ready for any day you want to get out of your room and for that matter, they should always be clean. So have as many as you can.
4 pairs of Socks.
The high school days when we would wear the same socks for a whole week or even a month are gone. It’s time to grow up and put on clean socks every day so make sure you buy enough and have a specific washing timetable for them and your inner wears.
1 or 2 Sweaters.
When the cold strikes, be ready to guard your health with a sweater. Flu is very common in college. A sweater comes in handy when it comes to keeping colds away. Studying at night requires you to be warm and comfortable and a sweater gives you both.
2 Khaki trousers.
Being casually dressed is best described by khaki trousers. They are also all-weather clothes and can be matched with a lot of other items
Well, these are the major items you will need to survive comfortably on campus having the ultimate college experience. For any more suggestions, please add in the comments section to keep the conversation going. Nice time.
