Canadian Tuxedo

This post isn’t just here to tell you that it’s acceptable to wear a denim jacket with your jeans, because truly, I put it on by accident. Then I was like, ‘Can I even do this? Whatever.’

 

What I really want to tell you about is the collar-under-the-sweater trick that got me through college. Besides having all male teachers (I was great at flirting with older men), wearing a collared shirt under a nerdy-sweater helped me with a few things in my years:

  1.  It made me look very smart and conservative; I might come in with a pretty face, but I also look like I’m here to do business.
  2. It made me look like a very classy-nerd. Which I can be, but once I open my mouth, I’m actually just a class-act.
  3. I always blended in with the finance boys, and the business-law females. Somehow, that made me feel powerful.

Sure, wearing this jean-jacket over my sweater makes me look bad-ass. But once I take it off, I bet I can go sit in on any college class I want.
