When I was on Emerson’s campus this weekend I realized I didn’t spot a single person in their sweat pants and a baggy tee. My friend mentioned to me that that was actually one of the reasons she loved going to Emerson so much. Everyone seemed to put the effort in to look stylish. Though Sex in the City may have run its course, Carrie never disappointed in her style, even when going to bed, let alone working at her desk or having lunch with friends. SITC might be fictional, but we could all use a little more style in our lives. Stop reserving those jeans for a night out on the town because how many times have you thought, “well I won’t run into anyone anyway…” And inevitably you always do. College students stepping up their fashion game is a heads up for everyone else. Everyday should be an excuse for dress up not just a nice night out.
The NY Times article titled On Campus, Taking Fashion Seriously said, “Whether students’ tastes run to an urbanely preppie composite of mannish shirts, slim skirts and blazers, flowered dresses and Ferragamo flats, or to a cutting-edge pastiche of long loose-fitting sweaters, calf-length skirts and platform booties, their absorption with fashion points to a sea change, suggesting that the style bar has been raised, reaching a level of sophistication all but unknown a mere decade ago.” It’s so true! Everyone wants to have the own style and while we should never let what we wear define us, we should always remember that how we look matters both on campus and off.
