How to Dress for College: 3 Outfits to Up Your Style

I recently collaborated with ASOS to share how to dress for college and different ways to stay on trend this school year. Classes can get super stressful. Style tends to be the first thing we throw out the window to cope with the stress. As a freshman, I used to wear bow ties to class. By senior year I was rocking sweats every day. I’ve learned that when you look good, you feel good, and all that helps you DO good. So below I’ll be sharing some outfit inspiration and tips for looking your best on campus.

I have been on a huge dadcore kick, so I was excited to give that trend a collegiate spin. Dadcore is all about relaxed classics. Think blazers, chunky sneakers, and trousers; that’s the vibe we’re shooting for. To incorporate that collegiate vibe, I’ve mixed some sportswear and accessories into my outfits.

Another key to this trend is playing with silhouettes. Most guys are into fitted suits and jeans. But dadcore is a lot more relaxed and boxy which makes these outfits more comfortable and perfect for campus. Also, don’t be afraid to play with the length of your pants. Cropped pants with white socks is a super easy way to stay on trend this Fall.

Sizing

Online shopping can be a little tricky, especially with retailers outside the US. Through trial and error I’ve finally figured out my sizing at ASOS:

XL in tops (2XL if it’s fitted)

36×32 in jeans

2XL in swimwear

105 cm. in belts

46 in suit jackets (48 if it’s skinny)

38×32 in dress pants
