    Tacky is the essence of college style. I am in my third year, and I find the popular looks to be horrendous. I understand why I am probably the only girl who wears heels on my campus - comfort is important to most people. What I dont understand is why 4 out of the 7 girls in my last course felt the need to display their tattoos on their lower back by pulling their skin above their pants and exposing back-fat and butt cracks.

    Its awful.

    Dont even get me started on ratty Ugg Boots.

    Same here. Granted, it is very hot and humid. I just want to shake all those girls that dress down, but carry a HUGE designer bag. Come on, I know you are not carrying around books in that bag. I want to tell them that money does not = style. Just because you can afford designer fashions, does not mean that you are fashionable.

    Here here!

    At my university, there seem to be Olsen - Nicole Richie clones walking around, there's almost a complete lack of individuality in style.. it's hard to come by a genuine stylish person whose style is their own.. and a lot of them opt to sport over-sized designer bags with over-sized sunglasses in a desperate attempt to look "stylish" where they really just look like clones... we even have some girls walking around in heels!! I mean come on it's college not a fashion show, you can still be stylish and dress comfortably! :yuk:

    We had a guy that dressed like Jack Sparrow pretty often. I can't figure out what the Vera Bradley obsession is these days, the campus I'm close to they're HUGE, especially with the Sororities. I took a few classes in the fashion merchandising dept. and was even disappointed with the looks in there. I definitely got strange looks for what I was wearing. Another thing I really hate are those school sweatshirts/tees that companies make in colors like pink and purple when those aren't the school colors. I graduated from Notre Dame, and when I see girls in teal ND t-shirts I just want to vom!

    I hear that. :sick: I even own a sweatshirt in Maroon. Now, I don't know what the school colors are but it does sort of make me mad that I'm not able to sport the school colors. But the fashions available with school spirit emblems on them are tacky.

    Why do they have to be impressing somone? Some people just like to dress up and look presentable.

    Don't hate on them because you like to walk around wearing (dowdy) flats...

    If the girls are in high school (when peer competitiveness is at its highest) they are more than likely trying to out-do eachother.. considering the physiological health risks of wearing heels (especially at their age) it's stupid they are wearing them daily AT school, where the environment is there for learning purposes. If they want to dress up in heels shoo them off to runways...

    That's just my opinion...

    i take offense to that ^ as a college student who wore heels on "dress down days" at my catholic school and still wears heels almost daily in college. i definitely wasn't trying to impress anybody, it was just about self-expression. generally i was ostracized because of my wardrobe choices: the only "acceptable" look at my school was a full-on american eagle/abercrombie outfit, coach logo handbag acceptable. i actually find heels comfortable and can walk in them much better than flats, which i always trip in. plus they make my legs look nice and work best with the inseam of the pants i buy: no tailoring required. ^_^

    at my current school, which is a small, private liberal arts college known for its quirkiness and intellectualism, the trend wh0re look is generally abhorred. there are a few north face/abercrombie lovers, but they're looked on with disdain by the majority of the student body. the average student here either wears jeans and a sweatshirt every day, citing a lack of time to pick out attractive outfits or lack of concern for their appearance when they're here solely to learn. students who actually put some thought into their wardrobe tend to have an eccentric "most of my clothing was bought directly from indigenous mountain tribe hand-loomers while traveling abroad with a pack of roaming gypsies" sort of vibe to them. yeah. again, i stick out like a sore thumb. :blink: but i'm okay with it. i like my heels.
