Stirling Campus Street Style
You guys, it's not even fair how cute and well-dressed university students are these days. I am officially 127,000 years old.
I had some business to attend to this week that took me to the Stirling University campus. The students were a delightful sartorial mix of urban edge, unfaltering femininity, and some really well-placed accessories. I seriously regretted not having a real camera with me, having to rely on my iPhone and the graciousness of the student body for letting me snap their photos while they were in-between classes.
My own undergraduate days took place in the early 90's at a midwestern university in America. This was during the height of what can only be described as the roll-into-class-in-your-flannel-PJ-bottoms craze, or as I now refer to it, The Dark Ages, 2.0.
Seeing these girls putting themselves together so decisively, right down to their creative uses of colour and accessories, made me realise that those of us who thought we were being cool, minimalistic, carefree, and low-maintenance in the 90s with our flip-flops and our slouchiness...well, we were most likely just being slobs. These girls are doing it for real.
