I've been reading the forums and getting ideas for quite a while now, but I noticed that a lot of fashions aren't accessible for college students who get by on ramen and water. Generally it's my policy to look slightly better than anybody else, but not so much such that I stick out or anything. A subtle chicness if you will. A typical day generally looks like: No Design Fitted Tee (BR, Gap) Random Blue Jeans (R&R, TR, etc.) Black Etnies If I'm dressing for a date or something, I usually try to dress better, but still not too stuffily. That usually ends up with me wearing a fitted black button down, or just throwing an H&M overcoat on top of a shirt. I was wondering whether anybody has any suggestions as to how I can expand my wardrobe. I'm specifically looking for affordable dress shoes which will go with jeans, and casual button downs which aren't just the standard black. Also, what do you folks do about shorts? I feel like khaki cargo type shorts were never fashionable, and the quicksilver plaid type is questionable. If it helps, I'm 5'7, asian, and have a fairly slender build.
