Where I sit at school, I am blessed with a view of the hallway, and with that view comes the questionable fashion choices of the students. I am NOT a fashionista by any stretch of the imagination. Put me in jeans and a tee shirt, or sweats and I am a happy camper, but that doesn’t mean I am not aware of what does and doesn’t look good.
Boys, please be aware that plaid shorts do NOT go with striped shirts or even worse, plaid shirts. It’s just wrong. Also gentlemen, there is NOTHING attractive about your jeans sagging halfway down your ass as you grace us with a view of your oh so stylish boxer shorts. It’s not sexy, it’s not hot and honestly, you look like a fool. Besides, if you have to grab your crotch to keep your pants from falling down, you have a problem. You are not in prison, why are you advertising the fact that you are willing to be somebody’s butt monkey – because that is what it means!
Girls, many of you are in fantastic shape which is a great thing, but there is no need to wear your shirts cut down to your belly button or your shorts and/or skirts so short that they end at your hips. You just don’t need to do it. It doesn’t make you look sexy or hot, it makes you look cheap. Oh and having words spread out on your ass – just plain STUPID.
Boys and girls, I get that your hair is a way to express individuality and actually, I’m all for it. However, some colors don’t look good, especially when you do it at home. So stay away from the blues and the lime greens, unless you’re getting it professionally done. The same for tattoos, if they’re professionally done, they look good. The ones you do at home don’t look good and honestly, you’re setting yourself up for infection. Piercings too. A couple is okay, too many is just stupid. You look like a pin cushion. And don’t EVEN get me started on gauges. When I can walk down the hall behind you and SEE through the holes in your ears they’re too big. And let’s talk about color in clothing. Trying to match your red shirt with your red shorts and your red kicks NEVER works. The same goes for greens, blues and yellows. Unless the clothing is made to be worn together, the colors just aren’t going to match. It’s a fact of life. Learn it!
I’m all for individuality, and expressing said individuality, but you don’t have to look stupid about it. But the fact of the matter is, when you all dress the same to express your individuality, it kind of doesn’t work. You’re more following the crowd than you are being an individual. So find a way to be different, but show some fashion sense at the same time.
