This is such a thing at Brown. I secretly think that all the cool kids at brown have an unspoken competition to see who can look the weirdest at any time. They break all the goddamn rules. It’s really inspiring.
One of these rules that they break, and often, is that one should really only stick to one pattern at a time. To that we say, hogwash.
How to Wear it
“I used to model for american apparel, but they wouldn’t let me wear my lipstick.”
This look is a little absurd, but no one can survive college without a healthy dose of absurdism. Wearing a romper and flatforms at the same time will make you look especially fashionable, because your legs will look long and stubby at the same time. What fun!
“Oh, you like this? Thanks! I mean, I’m just really into glitter.”
You’re into the classics. Polka dots and plaid. Sequins. Red, white, and blue. You should really just throw them all together. This is probably the most tame of the mixed-print options, because your plaid is subtle, and the polka dots are on your shoes. It’s very collegiate and feminine and nice. You’re cautious, and probably floss most days.
“You don’t happen to know if your soy milk is organic, do you?”
You probably walk around Hollywood drinking iced lattes and feeling the sun in your hair. This outfit is the perfect combination of something my grandmother would wear and the sexiest thing I’ve ever seen. That said, my idea of sexy is maybe a little off sometimes. I have been known to expect boys to notice the perfect shade of moss green that I have painted my fingernails.
Anything you buy from these links sends me a little bit of cash, so if you’re opposed to that on some moral level, feel free to google these things yourself. But I’d prefer you use my links, because I’m in college and therefore broke. You get it.
