The College Experience: Essential Clothing and Gifts
Whether you are searching for clothing or gifts, you have many options from which to choose. Your purchase should be based on your individual style or the tastes of the person for whom you are purchasing the gift. You can make a bold statement with your clothing or gift or you can simply blend in with the crowd. The look you create with clothing can make a personal statement about you – who you are, what you like, the things you support. The feel your gift exudes can impress the recipient and let them know how much you care about them, think about them, miss them , or love them. Making the right choice is important, and with a little information and guidance you can be confident in your decision.
Types of Clothing to Consider
Clothing options include things such as tee-shirts, sweatshirts, rugby jerseys and tops, cotton knitwear, wool knitwear, and sheepskin and leather jackets. Tee-shirts and sweatshirts come in many various styles and designs. From simple embroidered “Australia” designs to more ornate collegiate symbols and logos, tee-shirts and sweatshirts can showcase one's pride, allegiance, or general interests. Rugby jerseys and tops are not only comfortable and stylish, but they represent one of the country's most popular winter sports. Cotton and wool knitwear come in a variety of styles, colors, and designs. These clothing items can be beneficial all year long. Sheepskin and leather jackets can be very dapper or chic and add an air of sophistication to any wardrobe.
Clothing Advice for Students
While clothing is a must for students, especially collegiate clothing, most students will have limited closet space in their dormitory or apartment. For this reason, it is important for students to evaluate the clothing items that they will need most. Tee-shirts, sweatshirts, jerseys, knitwear, and jackets should be part of every students wardrobe, but this wardrobe should be kept to a minimum. Being fashionable is important but being a smart, savvy dresser is even more essential.
When it comes to clothing, students should keep several things in mind. Clothing essentials include: appropriate clothing for both classes and weekends, clothes than can be layered, and comfortable clothes and shoes. Students should dress professionally for class and only wear weekend appropriate clothing on the weekends. Fashions and styles will vary from campus to campus, and new students should keep this in mind.
If you are looking for the perfect clothing item as a gift for someone, be sure to keep in mind the recipient's unique, individual style. Just because you like an item of clothing does not necessarily mean someone else will share your tastes. If clothing is not the best gift option, there are other types of gifts from which you can choose.
There are many gifts options from which to choose, and these options include things such as bags, hats, caps, pins, soft toys, glasses, mugs, books, key rings, clocks and photo frames to name a few. All of these items can make a perfect gift if you take into consideration the likes and dislikes of the recipient. Gifts that are uniquely Australian, such as a stuffed koala bear toy or a kangaroo leather bag, can be truly special gifts. However, the best gifts are usually those that are sentimental, useful, or make for a good, hearty laugh.
