Must-Read: Fashionable in Your Twenties
Your twenties are a weird time. You are out of school, so you’re in that strange “what the hell do I do with my life?” phase for a long time — or if you already know what you’re supposed to be doing, then you have a lot of “well, how exactly do I do that?” moments — and will generally remain there until you’re 30 and just kind of give up on people’s preconceived notions and even your own. But that kind of strangeness and being unsure of oneself manifests itself in another way: Through fashion.

So, make sure that the shoulder seams actually hit you at the shoulder, the torso is trim but not tight and the rear doesn’t look like it’s ready to make a special delivery.
