So I received some positive feed back from my last Fashion Faux Pas:Mommy's edition that I decided to create another one. This time I am writing about something a little bit more familiar to me, I have witnessed these terrible fashion sins and let me tell you, they are NOT pretty! I have gone to 3 different schools in the last 5 years, I have met countless students from all over the world and I have seen different styles of fashion, I have seen the good, the bad and the ugly. So I am here to share with you the five fashion DONT'S for students! This applies specially to all college students!
Fashion Faux Pas #1: Wearing PJ's to class
Like, I get it. They are extremely comfortable and when you have an 8am class all you wanna do is sleep until the last possible minute, but that does mean going to school still wearing your PJs? No it doesn't! I have only worn my PJ's to school ONCE, that was during 'Senior Week' when I was in high school, and although I was showing my school spirit I have regretted ever since. I mean my teachers are always telling me to network and make connections with other students because we are all going to be joining the workforce pretty soon and we do not know where we might end up, we could end up as co workers or maybe a classmate could end up being my boss. And while I would like to be THEIR boss instead nothing is guaranteed. So when I go to a job interview or submit my resume I do not want to be remembered as the girl who wore pajamas to school. That's just not professional!
Fashion Faux Pas #2: Wearing Short Shorts
Believe it or not I have seen a couple of girls wearing these shorts, not only at school but also around the mall. You know what kind of message this type of clothing makes? Only one: That you are easy! I honestly do not care if you have the best looking butt and legs and can pull them off, I do not want to feel like I am at hooters, because otherwise I would be expecting you to bring me wings and a nice cold margarita.
Fashion Faux Pas #3: Wearing Uggs with shorts
Are you you hot or are you cold? Because certainly you can't be both! So do us all a favor and pick one and stick to it.
Fashion Faux Pas #4: Wearing high heels
Unless you are like the ladies from UT, who came with this concept to raise awareness for their relay for life event please do not wear high heels to class. I love high heels do no t get me wrong, but there is a place and time for them and college is not one of them. College campuses are BIG so it is most likely that you might have to walk a couple of miles to get to and from your classes, so just imagine how that is going to affect your feet. So unless you have a presentation for a class or an important meeting please keep those high heels back in your room. Trust me, your feet will thank me.
Fashion Faux Pas #5: Anything from your high school times
I understand that you worked hard for your letterman jacket, and that it comes in really handy during the winter, but guess what? You are not in high school anymore! So go out and buy yourself a hoodie from your college, c'mon! Show your (current) school spirit. Also wearing your high school stuff just makes it seem like you haven't moved on from that time in your life, YOU ARE IN COLLEGE NOW! You are about to experience a lot of crazy, fun, life changing things, leave high school in the past and embrace your present and your future.
