1. SwimsuitsA student enters wearing a bikini with a teeny tiny cover-up over it. Their shoulders and arms, most of their stomach, and 85% of their legs are visible to everyone. As class continues, air conditioning gets the best of them and goose bumps attack the surface of their skin.
Although their Victoria’s Secret ensemble is adorable, it stops being cute when the male professor and that creepy guy who sits in the back of the room agree. The only beachwear one should wear to class is a tan.
2. Furry shoesEarly morning classes always get the best of us but that’s no excuse for showing up in those extremely ridiculous, fuzzy slippers from Hot Topic. They should be restricted to your dorm room, particularly when your roommates are out of sight.
What outfit could you possibly match them with? You may argue, “Well, Snooki wears her slippers in public!” Well, that’s because she is Snooki. Your wild slipper shoes may earn you extra attention but it could also keep you forever labeled as “Crazy Slipper Girl.”
3. SunglassesSunglasses were made to protect one’s eyes from the sun, not florescent lighting. It is truly a mystery why some students feel the need to continue wearing sunglasses during class. Are you trying to hide your bloodshot eyes? Put some Visine in and remove the glasses.
It is not worth people thinking that you have eye problems or that you are extremely strange.
4. Visible bra strapsBras were created to give women support under their clothes. Flailing straps turn your Urban Outfitters crop top from cute to trashy. The color of a woman’s bra should be a mystery.
If you want to wear a racer back tank top, put your push-up away and throw on a strapless.
5. Leggings as pantsSome consider these to be yoga/workout pants, but their alter ego is known as “butt pants.” Girls love to wear them and guys love to check girls out when they wear them. Yes, they are oh so comfortable, but what kind of message are you sending?
Being so tight, it gives viewers great insight into what your lower half is shaped like. One cannot help but stare at your butt as it shakes from side to side while you walk. Do not wear leggings unless it is paired with a shirt that covers your entire booty.
6. Thongs plus low-rise jeansIt’s early, your professor is boring, and you cannot help but lean forward and bury your head in your arms. The students sitting behind you cannot help but notice your black lace thong peeking out.
Shouldn’t have worn those tight, low-rise jeans.
The only thing worse than a visible thong is a visible butt crack. Most victims have no idea what they are sharing with the world until it is too late. Make sure you check all angles in the mirror before leaving your dorm because this fashion crime goes hand in hand with embarrassment.
7. JunderwearWhen the weather gets warm, people cannot help but whip out their shorts. Some continue to wear their clothes from last summer, ignorant of the fact that they no longer fit.
This is how the term “junderwear” was coined. Junderwear are jean shorts that are so short they could be considered underwear.
If you are wearing shorts where the pockets hang out from underneath, nothing fits in your pockets, or your butt is hanging out, you are wearing junderwear. I suggest you remove them immediately and replace them with more appropriate bottoms.
On the other hand, here are seven things you SHOULD wear to class:
1. BlazersBlazers are chic and professional. They create a composed look while remaining casual. It is essential to have at least one or two neutral colored blazers in one’s closet. Blazers can dress up jeans or dress down satin shorts.
2. FlatsFlats are not as casual as flip-flops but not as dressy as heels. Not only are they a cute accessory, they are extremely comfortable. A pair of black flats can match with almost every outfit. The smacking of sandals and the clacking of heels does not compare to the quiet pitter-patter of flats.
3. High-waisteds skirtsHigh-waisted skirts should rest above your belly button with your shirt tucked underneath. They are more attractive when they are loose fitting and topped off with a belt. It is important to remember that the shorter the skirt, the more likely the wind will enjoy flinging it up.
4. Button downsWhen you do not want to settle for a plain t-shirt, button downs come in handy. They add texture to one’s outfit and create a professional persona. While they match with almost everything, they go best with skinny jeans.
5. Skinny jeansSkinny jeans are one of the essentials everyone should have in their closet. Since they come in every wash imaginable, it is not difficult to find something to match them with. They are most flattering when paired with a loose fitting top. The best part about skinny jeans is how well they go with almost any shoe. They can be tucked into a boot for a casual look or worn with pumps for a night on the town.
6. Maxi dress/skirtMaxi dresses are no longer limited to pregnant women and hippies — anyone can wear them. Since they are so long and loose fitting, everyone looks good in them regardless of their body shape. Maxi dresses are ideal for wearing in a professional setting because they are so conservative; no one has anything to gawk at.
7. Linen PantsIf you are looking for something comfortable as well as stylish, linen pants are what you are looking for. They are loose and free and keep your outfit simple without looking too casual. Nothing says fabulous more than wrinkle-free linen pants and a simple tank top.
