Stop it! 10 Things You Should Stop Wearing After You Graduate College

Your college years help mold you into the person you will become as an adult. It also can help mold your fashion sense…or lack of. While you may love some of your old ratty shirts that have helped you nurse your hangovers and breakups, it may be time to depart with them. While there are many memories that are attached to your college clothing, it doesn’t mean you should keep them and continue to wear them when you are now in the professional, adult world. Here are 10 things you should stop wearing after you graduate from college.

  1. Anything that doesn’t fit. Eliminate a large chunk of your college wardrobe by getting rid of the clothes that you don’t fit anymore. Don’t save them for the “when I lose weight” pile. It’s time to let it go and invest in some more comfortable clothes.
  2. Ratty sweatpants. I know those ratty, decrepit sweatpants are the most comfortable things you’ve ever worn, but do yourself and the world a favor by getting rid of them. It may be cool to don a sporty look, but invest in some nice sweatpants instead of still wearing your same ones from college.
  3. Sorority apparel. You love your sister and your sorority but if you still wear those out to events (sorority gatherings don’t count) it can make you look younger than you are and also slightly immature. Keep your favorite shirt and toss the rest.
  4. Teen looking clubbing clothes. Once you’ve graduated from college, you should graduate to shopping at more sophisticated stores. Toss any clubbing clothes that send out the wrong message. Also sparkled and sequined clothing should be far and few in your wardrobe.
  5. Leave the leggings to workouts and home lounging. Leggings are not pants and should not be worn as pants. If you must wear them out, at least wear a tunic that is long enough to cover your lady bits.
  6. Oversized free shirts. You got a bunch by going to events but every time you wear them it looks like you threw on a sack. Get rid of them, they do nothing for that sexy body of yours.
  7. Super low rise jeans. Jeans that cause kids to exclaim “say no to crack!” or reveal your lacey thong should be removed from your repertoire of clothing. Instead, invest in jeans that really flatter your shape.
  8. Plastic belts and pleather. If anything screams unsophistication, it’s pleather. Remove it from your sight ASAP. If you really want to wear leather or vegan leather, invest in a quality one that will last you for years to come. Same goes for those oversized patent, plastic belts.
  9. Cheeky shorts. It may have been fun to wear these shorts during those amazing summer music festivals, but it’s time to retire them. It’s not cute to have your cheeks out on display because your shorts are too short. There are plenty of cute ones that cover all of your booty.
  10. Bandeau bras as a top. Just no. Do yourself a favor and flatter your chest with something that lifts and fits them properly.
