Fashion Items You Should Stop Wearing in College

Going to college and starting a new phase in your life can be daunting, but it can also be quite exciting since it’s the time when you’ll get to know yourself more. Your taste in clothes will differ and your style will completely change. In short, your college wardrobe will now be a completely different ball game. So get ready to leave some of your clothing pieces behind as you learn which fashion items you won’t be needing for college.

Band Merchandise

We know how much you love your favourite band, but you no longer need to wear their merchandise when you’re in college since it’s already time to experiment with new styling and clothing pieces. You can wear it minimally, but just ensure that the face of your favourite artists isn’t printed on the entire shirt.

Worn Out Flip-Flops

Some universities in Singapore may allow wearing of flip-flops in school, but it might be time for you to trade in your good old flip-flops for some cute flats and sandals. Although flip-flops are extremely comfortable, it could give other people or your professor an impression that you won’t even bother to wear some presentable shoes for college.

Bright Coloured Pants

Your college outfits could last you either a year or the entire four years you’ll be studying at the university. For that reason, do invest in a good pair of jeans – not the bright coloured ones, since it’ll less likely last you a year in college.

Eccentric Shorts

Taking the lead from ditching your coloured jeans, it might also be best if you already put your eccentric shots to rest. If your shorts have more than one pattern or colour in them, then it’s best to leave them behind and get yourself a pair of plain or denim shorts that would match your outfits better.

High School Shirts

University life is about embracing the new place and culture you’re in. You could still show off your school spirit with your new school tees and not your old high school shirts. You could still wear them every once in a while, but remember that you’ve already worn them enough during your high school years.

While it may feel a bit overwhelming, getting into college could also be exciting since you get to learn more about yourself – and that includes discovering your personal style. Your college outfits are on a completely different level now, and one of the best ways to kick-start your new styling in this upcoming years is to ditch the aforementioned fashion items from your college wardrobe. With this, you’ll be able to enjoy your new life with a new you.

From Scrawny to Brawny: 5 Fashion Tips for Skinny Men

While you may think that skinny fellas have it easy in the wardrobe department, in reality, they also struggle in finding clothes that perfectly fits and flatters their built. Though most garments are made with slender guys in mind, the pieces often accentuate their slim bodies a little too much. The good thing is there are some good fashion rules that a skinny guy like you can follow to make your navigation in the world of getting dressed a lot easier.


  1. Ditch the Vertical Stripes. While it can make you taller, wearing vertical stripes can make you look much thinner. Vertical stripes are perfect for short, heavy men who want to look tall and thin. So for slender guys like you, opt for pieces set in wide and horizontal stripes.


  1. Go With White. White can be a promising colour if you’re thinking of making your built fuller, and only slim men are lucky enough to wear this peaceful colour from head-to-toe. So pack up your dark coloured pieces and fill up your wardrobe with white to enhance your look and physique.


  1. Wear Shoulder Pads. Shoulder pads aren’t just for women, they also work wonders in enhancing a man’s physique. They help in defining your shape and shoulder bone, while adding some extra bulk. Just remember to go for light or medium shoulder pads, since the heavy types can make you look a lot bulkier and massive.


  1. Put on Some Layers. Layering isn’t just a technique for women, it’s a fashion trend that even men can use to make themselves look fuller. Just wear a statement shirt under your favourite blazer, sweater or coat, wrap up a cravat around your neck and you’re good to go.


  1. Opt for Altered Pants. Going with fitted pants will only make you look thinner. Instead, get a pair of comfort-fit and have it altered by your tailor. Ask your tailor to taper your pants around the calf area to get that perfect fit. Also, your pants should be fitting around your waist and thighs, but not on the calf.

Finding clothing pieces that fit and flatter you can be quite difficult, especially if you have a rather slender built. But by keeping these fashion tips in mind, you’ll now be able to pick the right clothes for you and turn your scrawny frame into a brawny one.

5 Essential Bags Every Man Should Have

Of all the items in their closet, one thing that men probably has the most trouble with is his bag. While women have lots of handbags to choose from, men often face the challenge of choosing a carrier to put all his stuff in while not looking all girly. With all the bags out there, we’ve listed down six bag styles that can serve as your manly accessory either for work or play.

Front Photo Briefcase

  1. If you’re more of a traditional guy, then a rectangular briefcase should be your fashionable pick. While it’s a classic, we suggest that you avoid going for hard-shelled briefcases that your grandfather used to carry, and stick with its canvas or leather version instead. Most of these bags come with shoulder straps so that you can easily turn them into a messenger bag when you’re not at work.
  1. Messenger Bag. One of the easiest choice for men who are excessively nervous about looking all girly are messenger bags. Without exterior pockets and top handles, messenger bags will never risk looking like a girly bag. Plus, you can easily fit your iPad, laptop or anything that you’re toting around in it. It’s only downside though, is that going for excessively bright colours will make you look like a student who’s just about to attend his class.
  1. Duffle Bag. A multipurpose duffle bag is an absolute must-have if you’re someone who likes to jet from your work to the gym. Opt for a medium-sized bag set in neutral fabrics like canvas and cotton, instead of the casual nylon and shiny leather, for a perfect accessory either for your casual business or weekend attire.


  1. Tote Bag. Tote bags are the type of bags that often scare men off, even if they’re actually the contemporary take on the traditional briefcase. You shouldn’t be hesitant to keep this bag in your closet, since carrying it won’t make you any less of a man. In fact, this leather bag goes nicely with any casual business attire, and have lots of space to store your important documents and even your bagged lunch.
  1. Sporting backpacks are actually acceptable when you just know when to throw them on. Backpacks may too casual if you’re working in a suit-and-tie environment, but it can be great for casual work environments or some weekend haunts. Opt for backpacks that are made of weatherproof fabrics and set in the classic Jansport shape if you want a more youthful look, but if you want a more sophisticated vibe, then those made in suede and leather are your best choices.

Despite the stereotype, bags can actually be masculine. So go ahead and add these bag must-haves in your closet to make accessorizing your outfit a lot easier.
