On my campus we have this thing called the “circle” which (in a nutshell) is just a courtyard where everyone goes in between classes to people watch each other.Well being that it is a small private university; you can see almost anything in all directions on campus… and with that my boil of frustration begins.
It’s understood that we are all here to achieve a better and higher level of education which would intel that we have left behind our adolescence of actually caring what others think…right? ACTUALLY
I stand by my statement because it is more apparently seen in how we (me included) dress:
Nike compression under Nike tempos and tees, Polo (nothing else ralph lauren), maxis, unwearable (wrong sized) heels, the BUN, geek glasses with no pizzazz, “J’s”
… high-waist shorts, see thru tanks with collars…etc.
To start it of:
1. High-waist shorts (or anything high): it has become more of a copy
than a fashion statement.
The easiest cop out for cuteness! It isn’t hard to find a pair of your mother’s jeans or a “goodwill!”, take a pair of scissors to each pant leg, throw on a t-shirt and belt, and call ourselves “FASHIONABLE”
However; we fail to realize that we are not in the fashion realm but that we have actually outdated ourselves and are about three seasons of style behind.
Now don’t get me wrong I’m not saying let go of THE HIGH, but let’s do a little something special; go get some glitter, rip a patch and sew in some lace of a pic from an old T and rock it with some crazy colorful shoes!!!
Oh and speaking of shoes if you CANNOT wear heels… PLEASE DON’T WEAR THEM!
2. Maxi skirts and dress (which are my personal favs):
If you own a maxi dress or skirt raise your hand! OK now if it is printed keep it up!…. Cool! Now think to yourself what have you done with the dress (or skirt) lately?!
Oops sorry; that you hadn’t seen on an IG blog from a 15 yr old blogger?
The only reason I make
such a crude statement
is because it is obvious.
We (again including my own ignorance) cop out with plain colors, no accessories and average looks on campus, walking around like an IG “repost”
which leads me to my last and final
3. Fellas Fellas Fellas!!! PLEASE FELLAS! If I see another one of you in baggy pants and a striped tank top I may scream! STOP! You live NOWHERE near the beach and don’t own a skateboard so quit! You end up looking like this
when you intend to look like this
Also I get that a hand full of you are either on the court, on the field, or up all night typing procrastinated full papers, but please stop with the same outfit 3 days in a row! If you rock the school spirited T…go ahead but at least wear some jeans or nice J’s to match I mean step it up!
Oh and to think that if you rock some Levi Strauss jeans and a polo (mainly Ralph Lauren) with some cheap $5 glasses and call yourself prep;
u look crazy
(disclaimer: he is ONE HANDSOME black man!)
don’t! I mean you’re on the right path let’s just step it up.
had to get pops.. love his 2nd pair of eyes)
If you rock the glasses make sure they are noticeable, not just your everyday “geek wanna Be’s”… Throw on a nice chain and watch and keep your shoes clean, SMELL GOOD, and SMILE!
All in All it’s just a sad epidemic
