8. Admit that you experimented a little in college
Just get it out: you wore a bowtie with a short-sleeved buttondown a few times before you hit the club. Maybe you popped your collar too, or had a phase where you thought critter pants were awesome. That's perfectly fine. Part of finding your style is realizing what doesn't work for you, and sometimes that evidence lives forever on Facebook. So if mom or dad asks if you really thought you could pull off an ascot with a tuxedo that one time, just own up to it.
