Dressing for college isn’t easy – there is so much that has to be taken into consideration, such as practicality, cost, and more. College is often the time when people experiment with who they are, but at the same time they also want to blend into the crowd. Added to this is the fact that most college students don’t have a lot of money to spend. This means that any clothing they do pick out must be hard-wearing and serviceable, as well as able to go from day to night easily. Read on, and we will include some of the trends which are useful for college students when looking at clothes.
Colored jeans are set to make a comeback, and it’s easy to see why. They are one of the best ways to try and stand out from the crowd while still being similar to them. Everybody wears jeans, partly because they are the most widely available type of trousers. They are also hard-wearing, and go with anything, so are very useful to have. Colored jeans can be useful for giving a different spin on the normal jeans and t-shirt look.
A good way to try new things without breaking the bank, the new translucent socks allows you to try out a new trend which is coming in. Translucent socks might not sound very fashionable, particularly if they are normally hidden by your jeans, but the trend of wearing socks with sandals and shoes is combing back in, so you can let people see them.
Wearing Socks with Shoes
For whatever reason, in recent years we have seen more and more people wear shoes without socks or any kind of covering. That trend is on its way out, and wearing socks with shoes and sandals is back in. This lets our feet relax, because shoes can be uncomfortable, but it also means that we can show off our new socks and sock trends in peace.
These trench coats are good for most types of weather, as they are lightweight and portable. They let you keep a coat around for bad weather, without being weighed down by it if you are just going to the library to write a college essay. Trench coats come in a variety of colors, letting you choose one which suits you and complements the rest of your clothes.
Rather than a fur coat, the newest trend is a teddy jacket, which is almost exactly what it says on the tin. These jackets have fur which makes them look and feel like teddy bear fur. They come in a variety of weights and colors, and will without a doubt leave you feeling cozy and snuggly.
This is a new trend – feathers on clothing. Rather than trying to get an outfit which is entirely made of feathers, such as a feather jacket, people should focus on smaller pieces. Small brooches and attachments can be removed or added as you like, and so can be used to modify a number of outfits, without materially changing any of them.
Starting small also allows you to see if you like this trend, and allows you to expand from there.
Students this year will no longer have to worry about looks which can change from day to night, because sequins are now used for daywear. While there are outfits which cover themselves with sequins, there are also those which use them sparingly. If you are new to the trend, or don’t want to stand out too much, use the sequins sparingly, and pair them with more muted tones.
Bright colors are coming back in, and this is a way of trying out new things while also sticking to your old style. Bright colors appear in a variety of clothes, including t-shirts and sweaters, so it is a good way to try out new trends without sacrificing comfort. It also allows you to continue using practical clothing which you are used to, rather than needing to adjust to new clothes.
The next time you are looking for a jacket or a coat, buy one that has a fringe attached. Fringes are the latest fashion trend to hit the world, and they are very easily incorporated into any outfit.
Believable or not, plastic is one of the next big trends to hit our stores. Try a plastic jacket, to both look on-point, and also help keep you dry in the rainy weather. Plastic can also be combined with other trends as well.
While the focus on college clothes is hard-wearing and comfortable clothes, there is room for self-expression. These trends are some of the easiest to convert into college fashions, because they are easily incorporated into existing clothes and fashions. College students should be allowed to experiment with their look, and these trends give them the means to do so without much in the way of effort.
