Whether you’re a seasoned pro or totally new to the process, everyone can use a few helpful tips when it comes to shopping for SI’s dress code. It can be difficult to personalize your outfits when you’re confined to the “polo and no blue jeans” rule—which is why I’ve coordinated with other students to bring you a list of stores to help you get your wardrobe on track for this school year.

We’re all aware of the tried and true polo suppliers like Ralph Lauren, Lacoste, and Hollister, but when the classic threebutton polo gets old, you might consider visiting a San Francisco boutique. Josie Little ’15 remarked“I’ve found some cute shirts that work as polos at Ambiance. You kind of have to search through the clothes to find the right stuff, but it’s worth it!”

If you’re looking for a name-brand bargain, look no further than Crossroads Trading Co., located in multiple neighborhoods around the city. “I usually go to Crossroads which is a buy, sell, and trade clothing store,” says Pilar O’Connor ‘15. “Most of the clothes there are used but they’re all well-known brands in really good condition and at good prices!”

If you prefer a wider variety of clothes to choose from, you may want to head to a department store like Sydney Sobrepeña, ’15, who commented, “Old Navy is good for all polos, and I go to H&M and Forever 21 for pants and sweaters!”

If you ever find yourself short of funds for a full-on shopping spree, not to worry: you can still find all of your favorite brands at discount stores like Marshall’s or online at sites like Bonanza! Happy shopping!
