    So here's the deal. When I moved from my hometown to go start my second year of university, I had to move all of my clothes. And as I look at them, I realize how hopelessly unfashionable a lot of them are. Faded hoodies that are too big, t-shirts that look tacky, etc.

    I kind of want to go for a bit more of a preppy, dressed-up kind of look. A little more fitted clothing to look classier. I'm a bit hopeless with fashion though icon_eek.gif

    I looked at American Eagle, American Apparel, Urban Outfitters all online to see some of their stuff. I liked Urban Outfitters and American Eagle the best. I think most of their stuff is the style I'm going for.

    Anyways, more to the point of this post, if you know any stores (preferably in Canada) that sell the kind of clothing I've described (hopefully I've made it clear the kind of look I'm going for - if not, let me know). Especially if those stores are affordable on a student budget.

    You guys haven't failed me yet, so thanks in advanceicon_biggrin.gif

    For fitted clothes, American Eagle jeans are the best. They run a little small, so they hug the form of the legs really nicely, and if you are already slim in the waist, they even carry smaller sizes most stores don't have.

    For tees, American Eagle also has some nice screen tees, although they aren't very diverse. If you can in Canada, I would suggest looking at (nobody shoot me for this) Target. They have a lot of really nice tees for much cheaper than any store you'll find in a mall. Hollister also carries nice tees, but they tend to be expensive and don't have as much diversity.

    Finding a good belt can also really help to make even a simple outfit much better.

    Hope that helps.
