Girl, do you own a mirror?

Emma Bowen

We all love showing up to school and seeing a girl exposing way more than what makes us comfortable. Whether it be short-shorts or an extremely revealing top, it always surpasses the line between “appropriate” and “inappropriate.” More often than not, the common excuse for why they are dressed so scandalously is, “Well, who cares what I look like, as long as I’m doing well in classes…”Wrong.

People do care what you look like, especially if it’s distracting, and nine out of ten times it makes someone want to throw up. That being said, I have devised a list of clothes a girl should NEVER wear to school.

       1. Yoga Shorts.

For those who are in the dark to what these are they are yoga pants— but shorts. Similar to the appearance of spandex yoga shorts should be worn only around the house, to the gym or maybe even to YOGA. Not to school.

       2. Cut-off shirts.

They look like they were made for a three year-old. You may think it’s sexy, but trust me when I say that no one wants to see that much of your stomach.

        3. Denim Underwear,

or commonly known as short, tight shorts. Referring to my nickname for them, it seriously looks like you are wearing underwear… That’s denim. It can’t be comfortable.

4. Cut-up shirts.

If you’re going to wear them, PLEASE wear a shirt underneath.

     5. Shirts with the back cut out.

Refer to #4. If you choose not to wear something under it, please make an arrangement where we don’t have to see the back of your bra.

      6. Heels.

If you want to be uncomfortable all day, that’s your issue, but you will most likely fall down the steps and break a heel. I’ve seen it happen.

       7. Cleavage-bearing tops.

A little in moderation is okay, but if I can almost see the whole thing, please for the sake of others wear a shirt under it, or a sweater or SOMETHING.

       8. Strapless.

For one, you have to wear a strapless bra and that’s annoying in itself, and someone could easily pull your shirt down. You may ask yourself “Who would ever do that?” but it happens.

       9. Torn micro-miniskirts.

Yes, we can see your cheeks when you’re walking up the steps.

     10. Crocs.


The bottom line is, just have some class and self-respect. School, believe it or not, is a professional environment and you should be dressing with that bit in mind. You do not have to wear turtlenecks and wool stockings, but just take others’ eyes into consideration while dressing.
