No ‘Gossip Girl’ Style in Sight
I don’t know about you, but when I was in high school I dreamed of the high-fashion college days; I could not wait to be around individuals expressing themselves through style…not being bound by those dreaded “high school dress codes”. As you can tell, I am a huge fan of Gossip Girl and was expecting to see some Blaires and Serenas on campus.
But what a disappointment! Does anyone out there agree? Oversized t-shirts and Nike running shorts…that’s basically 90% of college campus style (I have been to 3 schools already and this seems to be a trend). I am sure if we were in NYC things would be different, but I’m talking about the majority of college campuses in the United States.
We Are Individuals…Show it Off!
Where is the style girls? I know you did not just come from the gym…Now, I do understand that it is very easy to fall into this habit because we are running around from class to class. But each one of us is an individual, and the way you dress is ultimately the way to show people who you really are. Even if you don’t value fashion, you should strive to look “put together” because you never know when you will meet a future boss, future parter, future lover…etc.
“Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.” ― Coco Chanel
I can guarantee that if we make an effort in the morning to put a cute outfit together, compliments will come flying our way! Through fashion I have learned more about myself as a person and can walk around with confidence. So let’s bring some more style to these unforgettable college years!
