I’d just like to applaud the group of sophomore girls that call out the so called “bro” style that seems to be the norm for males at Oxy. I admit I wear cargo shorts and even plaid patterned shorts but I have enough sense to pair them with shirts that have color and style or some kind of accessory (fitted hats, hoodies and non-basketball/running shoes being some of my favorites) that provide balance. To be sure, flip-flops with socks? No. Camo shorts? No. Gym shirts and shorts as everyday dress? No.

Fashion is just too personal to wear a gray Occidental shirt or khaki shorts with a mud green colored shirt. Running shoes are for running and other forms of exercise only. Give me teal, lime green, purple and even pink (only if it isn’t a polo and isn’t the primary color).

Some people even think that a popped up collar makes you look good. Are we still in the 80s? To be honest though I can’t say that the hipster look is the preferred option. Jeans and a t-shirt with some nice sneakers and a blazer is a real simple way to not be a hipster and not be a bro.

Step up your game guys. Can’t let the girls be the only stylish ones on campus.
