Dear Badger, 

Here’s a question for you. What is it with students around campus and their God awful fashion sense?

Surely I can’t be the only person who thinks this? Now I’m not necessarily applying this rule to everyone but there are only so many extreme pyjama trouser print combos and dreadlocks I can take (and I’ve seen enough… and way worse). I mean how hard is it to put together a relatively simple outfit and still look presentable? To all you fashionistas out there who know the difference between looking good and looking heinous on a daily basis; I salute you!

The other day as I sat in the corner of East Slope on a Skint Tuesday relatively sober, (a mistake I am not stupid enough to make again) watching the sweaty bodies gyrating along with R Kelly’s ‘Bump n’ Grind’, I noticed on the make shift ‘dance floor’ a young bloomer (obviously a first year) who was donning a pair of (very) baggy jeans, a plain black cardigan and some rough old Timberland boots that looked like they belonged to her great granddad – all whilst balancing a snakebite and twerking like it was going out of fashion.

To put it bluntly, it was a sight for sore eyes (and not the good kind). Not to mention the boy in the library whose trainers had holes and what looked like sick marks on them *shudders*.

So if there’s one thing you can take away from this, I’m simply suggesting to you all out there to stand back and look in the mirror once in a while before you leave the house in the morning – it might just prevent another fashion disaster (or prevent me vomming as I spot another student in a disgusting pair of jeans). Many thanks.

Charlotte Wade
