College life is always special. It is the intermediary transition period between school and work life. It’s like walking over to adult hood from your adolescence. One of the best parts of one’s life, as they say, is the college time span. The carefree and super light living is something you might not get back pretty soon. Things we use in college or the stuff we do during that period leave a deep impression on our minds and many people want to keep living in that delirium. But, that’s not quite possible. At one point of time, you have to step out, make some changes to your lifestyle and face the real world head on.

Now, we understand if you aren’t ready yet to let go of the magical period and the super special memories yet but there are things that you just need to stop doing already if you don’t aim at ending up as fashion disasters in your latter years. Make sure you’re not stuck in the past fashion-wise at least. The real world and your college dorm are two different worlds altogether and you need to start dressing for the occasion if you want any chance at getting some positive attention right in the beginning.
In case you are confused, we decided to get you a list of the things you should absolutely stop wearing after graduation, no matter how nostalgic they may make you feel. If you have to keep it, keep them in a no-go corner of your wardrobe.
Here is a list of things to stop wearing after college:
1. Rubber Flip Flops
Flip flops are a craze when you are in your college years. They are a part of the basic staples list that you have to own at any cost to look cool. Wearing flip flops gave you that carefree, charismatic, comfy feel that every college goer loves in their teen years. But, the sad news is, it’s time to let those worn out rubber flip flops go. You’re no longer in a college dorm, and your footwear should definitely reflect that.
2. Giant Oversized Hoodies
Black Hoodies, blue hoodies, printed hoodies, Superhero hoodies and slogan hoodies, are complete favorites among college goers and teenagers. Everybody has a type of hoodie they like and a lot of memories attached to it. But, its’ time the hoodies took a backseat. You can still take it out sometimes to relieve some memories but that’s pretty much it.
3. T-shirts With Quirky Quotes
T-Shirts with Quirky quote get you that extra bit of attention in class and amongst your friends. But, will your office colleagues and more importantly your seniors like the same idea? We’re afraid not. T-shirts with “cool” quotes may not be as appreciated as you think. So it’s best to chuck these of the list too.
4. Shiny Party Shirts
Your shiny all purpose ‘go-partying’ shirt might not be the best idea anymore. The difference between what you wear at a college party and what you wear to official parties should not be nearly the same. Ditch it and just go with something that looks a little classier when you hit the bars and clubs.
5. Pajama Pants
Even though walking to class in pajamas seemed like a great idea in college. You might have to rethink your sense of style when you walk out of that college main gate for the last time. Pajama pants can only be worn at home, ‘only at home’.
6. The Athletic Shorts
Remember that favorite Athletic shorts of yours? Yes we are talking about that ripped, old mesh athletic shorts that has been your lucky mascot while you won gold for your college team. But now that college is over you might have to put that aside unless you’re actually going to participate in yearly recreational games in office.
7. Free T-shirts
Not all people are privileged equally. Most college goers are tight on their pocket and have to earn the maximum of their pocket money. Thus, naturally those free t-shirts you got from every campus event or every club you joined on campus or even the T-shirts you got free with gadgets you bought come like a blessing in disguise. But now they need to go and need to walk away from those finally.
8. Mini-skirts And Torn Super Short Hot Pants
This one is specifically for the pretty college chicks who just broke hearts of the college lads year after year. Though you might have been the fashion princess in your time and have flaunted your beautifully toned assets all over the campus, it is time for some things to change. Mini-skirts and torn super short hot pants are some of the clothes that girls should stop wearing after college.
9. College Collectables
If you went to an A-league university, you would know better about the feels associated with apparel with your college’s name on the chest, sleeves or anywhere else. But, after graduation, the sad reality is that no one cares anymore. And that is why there’s absolutely no reason to wear it anymore too.
10. Bucket Load Of Funky Accessories
Last but not the least, we feel those chunky, blingy wrist clutches, diamond studs and rings need to move down your list of favorite accessories to use after college. Stop using them already now.
Now, that you know the things to stop wearing after college, go space out your wardrobe immediately.
