Styling A College Athlete, For A Week

When I first started dating my boyfriend, his style was, well let's call it college athlete chic.

His go-to wardrobe choices were sweatpants, or what he likes to call them, joggers, t-shirts from various sporting teams and events, and crocs.

This year we made it our goal to update his wardrobe and add a little spice to his closet.

I’ve taken him thrifting with me, I’ve helped him find a color palette that I personally think matches his warm undertones, and we started shopping for his favorite brands at affordable prices.

This week I will be styling my boyfriend every day and giving him an upgrade from joggers, to something a little more dapper and professional.


The olive colors in this outfit go great with his warm orange undertones. His button up top is thrifted from Goodwill, his pants are Calvin Klein, his black belt is Tommy Hilfiger, along with his shoes, and his black chain necklace is from Amazon.

And to keep the look fashionable and stay COVID safe, he is wearing a grey mask from Old Navy.

For this outfit he is wearing a Michael Kors quarter zip sweatshirt, with Calvin Klein slacks, and a black chain from Amazon, along with his Tommy Hilfiger loafers. The black and white color contrast adds a more dapper look to a simple outfit. While the slacks and loafers give the outfit an aspect of professionality and sophistication. This outfit would be perfect for attending an online career fair, nailing an interview, or going out to dinner (whenever it is safe to do that again).

Today I styled him in a thrifted Stafford plaid button up, navy blue pants from JCrew, and white vans. While this outfit is on the simpler side, it is a great option for class, running errands, or hanging out with friends, socially distanced of course.

This outfit is great because it's aseasonal. In the winter you can add layers, and in the summer, you can roll up the sleeves or throw on a white t-shirt underneath and leave the top unbuttoned.

Here he is wearing a green thrifted Preswick and Moore sweater with Michael Kors jeans, Tommy Hilfiger shoes, and a plaid scarf.

If you are looking to update your wardrobe on a budget, then consider thrifting. The best part about thrifting is that you can find high quality brands at cheap prices.

I picked this green wool sweater out for him at Goodwill and it was made in Italy and brand new with the tags still on!

For this look I styled him in something a little more comfy and casual. He is wearing a Tommy Hilfiger sweater, Khaki pants from Aeropostale, and navy Tommy Hilfiger shoes.

This outfit is very laid back but still fashionable with color coordination in his top and shoes. And he is repping his favorite brand, Tommy Hilfiger.

Today I styled him in a thrifted orange sweater from Nautica, navy JCrew pants, white vans, and a brown, orange, and white plaid scarf. This outfit is comfy, cozy, and fashionable.

The slightly oversized sweater makes for a great streetwear look, while the scarf and muted toned pants keep the outfit classy, and stylish.

For Sunday’s look I wanted to keep it classy and relaxed. Sundays are for brunch, taking your dog for a stroll around the park, and self-care. And that's what this outfit is all about with the warm cream colors and neutral tones.

I styled him in a Polo Ralph Lauren quarter zip, with brown khaki pants from Aeropostale, loafers, and a tan and blue plaid scarf.

After this week of styling all of my boyfriend’s outfits, he asked me to style him every day from now on.

While the fashion world can sometimes feel intimidating, I want both men and women to feel like they always have options to look professional and fashionable, without breaking the bank, or stressing over your look.

You can be boujee on a budget whether this be through thrifting, shopping discount stores like Marshall’s, or simply styling yourself in the right pieces.

I hope these outfits that I styled for my boyfriend gave you some inspiration for your own style.
