    I've been asked by my college's newspaper to be the successor to the current style columnist. I was thinking my first article should be on fit and how important the fit of one's clothes are to anyone's style. Anyone have any other ideas for my first article?

    If you go for an artice on fit... you should include the addresses of local tailors to help the poor slubs out there.


    Another idea could be about the do's and don't of style. Like socks and sandals, pajama pants to class, etc... Pretty much almost everything you would see everyday on campus

    style mistakes. it'll be funny enough for college that people will read it. then hopefully you can lure them in to deeper stuff next week.


    there are plenty of examples out there, including one that dappered wrote.

    I agree that whatever you write has to draw in your audience. Maybe your fit article with emphasis on jeans, etc. Maybe an article on dressing for an interview? Or an article about what people wish they had known about style back in college. Granted you might not have any credibility since you're still in college, but you could cite articles from dappered or other sites.

    I think candid pictures of fellow students (faces obscured) exemplifying the dos and don'ts would add some interest to the columns.

    Either style mistakes or your fit guide are good ideas.

    I love the style mistakes idea. Just be careful not to offend the jock who's wearing all abercrombie & fitch gear.

    +1 on Mr. Pepper's idea...sounds like you might be the next Mr. Popular, or kid that gets punched for taking a pic of a member of the hockey or football team for looking like a bum...either way you get the girls so its a win win in my book!
