I'm going to school in CA where it's sunny most of the year so I'll be wearing cargo shorts and flip flops every now and then with tshirts. I'll probably wear jeans and comfortabe shoes with a polo, too. and I'll wear business casual when needed and go formal whenever the occasion merits it. If you can pull a look off why not? People who are clothes whores probably tend to be that way because they need the clothes to make them look better as a whole. Fortunately for some of us, it doesn't matter what we wear.


I guess you missed the thread which discussed the best highlighter and where to buy it.

I was just about to ask that question. Glad you posted this first. Boy would I have looked foolish

It means you have some style. I like to dress. You never know who's watching. I won't be in suits unless i have an interview, but I might wear a blazer once a week (Fridays) with jeans or flat front/skinny pants.

Normally, I'll wear skinny pants/flat front pants/slacks with a boot or loafer, a nice v-neck with a shirt under it or a fitted button-down shirt, and a leather or suede jacket. At school, I like to look "dressed", but not dressed up. Even if I wear jeans, I'll put on a loafer, and a cardigan with a shirt and skinny tie to go with it. But that's my style. I will do jeans and a really nice t-shirt once in awhile...with a loafer.


Just one loafer at a time, then? :*)

People are saying you shouldn't wear t-shirts in class or even in public anywhere? That's probably even more retarded than the idea behind this thread.
