Some Nontraditional students DO care about fashion!
I know I do. Not that I buy many new things; I don't. BUT I want to know what is in style. Nontraditional students often do not have much extra money. They are busy paying for their books, lunches, supplies for school, and perhaps their kids' expenses too. But that doesn't mean they can't have fun with their clothing or change it up a bit each year. Face it. Sometimes it just gets old looking at the same old thing every day that you are wearing.
Knowing what is in style can help you blend in nicely at any school you attend. It can also boost your spirits. I have listed a few good websites to look at when you are not studying. (Yeah... like THAT is going to happen!)
And I don't think it's necessary to wear what much younger kids do; just find out the trends and make your own fashion statement!
Back to school as an older student - what should you wear?
