The most noticeable one is the over-dresser, and that’s precisely the way they expect it to be. You’ll recognize this student right away, rocking clothes that look as if they came straight off the runway. That girl in your math class who never wears heels lower than 4-inches or that guy you saw in the cafeteria wearing a Giorgio Armani suit would fit into this category well.
With these guys, it’s all about looking their best at any given moment and keeping all eyes on them, and while that’s not necessarily a bad thing, we must be wary of the over-dressers who let the attention get to their heads and start believing they’re better than the rest of us more lowly dressers. On the extreme opposite end of the spectrum, we can find the anti-dresser. This student will come to school in pajama pants, a torn t-shirt and a pair of sneakers with mismatched and questionably stained socks.
Some kids sporting this look may have just been running a bit late or were feeling a little lazy that morning, while the others are making an almost political statement: that they don’t care what the rest of us think of them and refuse to conform to the norms. They’re not trying to impress anybody with their look and instead look for other ways to garner some attention – either through academics, athletics or social situations. Somewhere in the middle, we’ll find the casual dressers. Most students can fit into this category at least half of the time they’re on campus.
You’ll find them strolling around in their Taylor’s University polo and shorts, or a nice, albeit boring, blouse and a pair of jeans. They dress conventionally and down to earth; they’re not trying to stop traffic with their clothes, nor are they completely ignoring the importance of their presentation. Their goal, sometimes without even realizing it, is to show up at school and fly under the radar. Maybe they just want to focus on their schoolwork, or maybe they are too concerned with fitting in to try anything a little more adventurous with their wardrobe, but this is a campus style that won’t be going anywhere any time soon.

Each of these styles tells us a story of the student – what you chose to put on is a form of self-expression, and regardless of what the fashion magazines tell us, there is no “wrong” way to dress. None of these campus fashion personalities is better than another, and instead add to the culture of Taylor’s. What is more important to remember is that we accurately present ourselves to the world – so jeans or leather hot pants, flip-flops or Jimmy Choos, they all have a place at this school.
