On campus, your fashion sense is either hot or not. The flair for fashion among campus students is second to none. This is where you are free to try out new stuff, be adventurous with your body and ultimately your outfits. However, some people can walk past you and make you cringe; more of a feeling like someone just fed you bitter lemon peels. While I am no Donatella Versace, I believe I can tell the difference between a fashion hit and a miss.
Here are my top five fashion no no’s
Your face is the first point of contact for anyone who wants to approach you. However, ‘caking’ it up and ‘drawing out stuff’ kills your first impression. How someone wakes up and decides to have all their eyebrows chopped off, yes, I used chopped, is still a case to the Supreme Court. So instead of walking around looking like a moose, they decide to play God and redraw their eyebrows, tsk! Wait, it gets worse, the eyebrows are drawn dramatically, so the person walks around with a ‘surprised’ expression on their face. How now? A while back, a light-skinned classmate decided to make our day when she cut off all her eyebrows. When she woke up and realized that she had misplaced her black eye pencil, she decided purple is the new black. Again, how now? Don’t get me wrong having your eyebrows trimmed is important; I mean you don’t want to be confused with a bush man. So if you’re going to do it, do it right, proceed with moderation.
Secondly, I thought we had left the face painting to the children at Uhuru Park, but I don’t understand how a lady confuses make up with face paint, tsk. With makeup, less is always more, honey; we don’t want to confuse you with a ghost. I guess Drake had you in mind when he sang, ‘… without your makeup on, that’s when you’re prettiest.’ If makeup isn’t working for you, don’t even dare try or else you end up looking like the class clown, literally. BTW, it is not makeups, the child who was your English teacher?
