I'm yet another college student in the process of improving my wardrobe and I'm looking for advice here. I'm already used to wearing preppy style clothes, but I want to move up from all the Gap, AE, and generic stuff most kids my age wear. I want to look more fashionable and stand out from the polo & khakis crowd, but obviously I don't want to go over the top and look like a Jean Paul Gaultier model (in terms of both appearance and price). To narrow things down, I'll list a few other things to help give a better idea of what I want and what might look good on me. -I'm about 5'8", 135 lb, skinny-medium build, light skin, dark hair & eyes. -I go to college in the east coast (I live in Houston now though), so I'd prefer clothes that I can wear in the fall/winter without freezing my ass off. -I refuse to wear jeans or synthetic fabrics (well, 97% cotton 3% something else is ok, but not like 50/50), just don't care for them much. -If possible I'd like some versatility (i.e. something I can wear both to class and out on weekends), but this isn't a necessity. Since I'm only 18, money is still an object, so I'd like to set my cap at around $40-60 per item, although I'd be willing to go up to $75-100 for a really sweet piece of clothing I could use as a centerpiece of my wardobe, if you will. That's it I guess, I'd appreciate any advice you have to offer... brands, fabrics, styles, where to buy them, etc.
