Starting college or university is exciting. It’s time to find out your true style! Although you hold the reigns to express yourself in whatever threads makes you feel good, here are a few ideas that will show everyone what you’re studying day and night.

The Law Student

A basic dress shirt and wool pant combination is all business. It’s in the accessories where you can let loose. The bow tie and hat emit a creative flair, and the shoes say “I’m still young enough to have fun. I haven’t passed the bar yet”.

Your outfit should be just as picture-perfect as your art. The black beret, leggings and crew-neck make a clean palette. And the shoes add a splash of color. Truly a masterpiece bound to get you noticed.
