Study in style


Sure, many schools have dress codes that prevent you from going too wild with your wardrobe, but that doesn’t mean you have to look like a fashionless nerd either. Sun Narin, Tivea Koam and Kaing Menghun are here to give you some tips to keep you looking sweet while fitting into your school’s restrictions.

Backpack
If you are a legitimate student, you’re going to need something to carry your books in, but most backpacks at the market these days look like they are for little kids or outdoor trekkers. Luckily, there is a new backpack from the Hong Kong company XO that is fit for a student who is both serious and stylish. Add this subtle but fashionable backpack will finish off your fresh school uniform and your peers won’t be able to control their jealousy.

Glasses
If you have bad vision you are going to need eyeglasses anyway, so why not buy some elegant and thin linoc-framed glasses that will not only help you see more clearly but make you look smarter and more attractive. With various colors including pink, silver, black and white, these newly imported glasses from Italy are sure to stand out.

Watch
If someone asks you what time it is, you would probably just look at your phone, but, unless your phone is incredible in itself, that’s not particularly cool. Wearing a watch on your wrist for easy time checking can make you look smarter and more mature than your classmates. If you want people to know that you are a student who stays up-to-date, you need a timepiece on your arm.

Shoes
Choosing suitable shoes for going back to school can be a headache, but CNERKA has released a line of shoes that will make the task of outfitting your feet much easier. Made with denim and various other fabrics, these uniquely designed shoes will impress anyone who happens to glance at your kicks. The best part is they look awesome with whatever you’re wearing on your bottom half, whether it’s shorts, a skirt or trousers. For less than US$20, these cutting-edge shoes will have you ready to stroll into class with confidence.

Belts
Just wearing a nice shirt with trousers doesn’t cut it if you want to be a cool student these days. You need a belt to liven up your wardrobe and make you look more attractive. Crocodile, Channel and D&G belts are the most familar brands, but there is a new belt brand from Hong Kong named Guangtouwang moving in on the market. With smooth black leather and a fascinating logo, people will think you’re awesome. If you don’t dare make the change, you can always wear a white belt from a company like Gucci and still look cooler than anyone in your classroom.

Wallet:
If it isn’t obvious when someone first sees you, you can blow them away with your surprise coolness when you whip out an awesome wallet from your back pocket when you pay for something. Whatever your interests are, there is a wallet out there to match them, and nothing lets people know what you think about the world like the insignia on your money holder. This 2PM wallet, with the logo of the popular Korean boy band, is one of many options for people on a quest for cool.
