First fashion blog! GET EXCITED!
Welcome to the rules of college fashion, Drake U style. Let me fill you in on some of the basics of cold weather dressing.
UGGS AND SWEATPANTS ARE A MUST!
Not! This looks absolutely horrible. Do not tuck your baggy sweatpants into your Ugg boots and think that it looks cute, relaxed or even practical. Really, it makes your legs look huge when your sweats are billowing out like bad imitations of MC Hammer’s pants. Not only that, it looks really sloppy. Now, if you wear your pant legs OVER your Uggs, this is fine. Because then it just looks like shoes and sweats. No big deal.
FREAK OUT AS SOON AS THE TEMPERATURE DECIDES TO DROP 10 DEGREES!
Also, a no. You look ridiculous with your scarf, beanie, mittens, Uggs, and down-feather puffy coat. Pick ONE of these things or lighter versions of these and then you will look practical and like you know how to dress for the weather.
OPAQUE LEGGINGS AND ALMOST LONG SHIRTS THAT DON’T QUITE COVER YOUR BUTT ARE FINE!!
Once again, no, it’s not fine. Don’t get me wrong, the leggings and long shirt thing going on is cute but only if you do it right! I see so many girls walking around campus with long-ish shirts and leggings, thinking that you can’t see their bright pink underwear. Oh honey, you definitely CAN see them. So please, be absolutely sure when you wear this look that your shirt doesn’t ride up when you walk and if it does, that you are wearing something that covers your bits and doesn’t clash with your leggings. Be sensible and classy, girls!!! Is that so hard?
I know that was a bit harsh, but that is my fashion advice to Drake girls at the moment. Next week’s fashion blog will be more about what’s new on the market and my thoughts. Once in a while I’ll throw in another one of these telling the lovely people out there the DO NOT’s of fashion. =]
