For all the guys who think dressing up for class is lame, shame on you. Fashionistos who put effort into their wardrobe can make a long-lasting impression. Dressing well shows respect not only for yourself and others, but most importantly to your professor. No matter how bright your professor may be, he will have a tough time taking anyone wearing pajamas or sweats to class seriously. Dressing up a notch from your peers can show your professor that you take his class seriously and can potentially help you down the line when you need a letter of recommendation. If you’re struggling to find ways to upgrade your wardrobe try switching T-shirts for polos, sweatshirts to sweaters, sweatpants to jeans and gym shoes to leather loafers and Sperry Top-Siders. Keeping these style tips and professionalism in mind, I spotted this Fashionisto on campus sporting a trendy look.
