I think that the proper attire to go to College is something that does not reveal too much of the body. For example, I don't think that female students should wear clothes that show too much of their skin, as it may be very distracting for some male students as well as the teacher. Furthermore, the purpose of you going to school is not so that you can show your style to other people, but to learn and study. I think that students should also wear something nice and neat, and not wear their pajamas. However, different people have different meanings of the word "proper", and no one should be denied of education just because of what he or she wears to school.
Proper attire would be clothes that does not reveal too much of the body/skin. It can be really distracting and make others feel uncomfortable in the classroom. Basically, clean and neat clothing would be proper attire. For guys, a clean, wrinkle-free t-shirt with jeans (no holes or rips) would be ideal for proper college attire. Same goes for girls. A lot of people have different styles, but as long as they wear proper fitting clothes that cover the most part of their bodies, I believe that to be proper college attire.
Proper attire would be clothing that doesnt show inapropriate parts of the person. other than that evryone should be able to wear whatever they want. This is a free country right? lol
I think proper attire in college can range from casual to more fancy. Although everyone wakes up tired and does wears their PJ's to school, that might be considered too casual. On the other hand, if a person wore a suite or a gown to school, that might attract lots of attention and not be appropriate as well. Appropriate attire in college is crucial because a person's outfit can potentially distract other students.
I personally believe anyone should be able to wear whatever type of clothing they want. If you feel it’s necessary to wake up at 6 am to do your hair and pick out a perfectly matching outfit with high heels then go for it, i am impressed. Or if you’re like me and just want to be as comfortable as possible and wear casual clothes, sometimes even sweats, then i should have that right too. Unless i’m paying to go to a private school that enforces a uniform, i believe attire should be up to the student.
There is no proper attire for college, college is too general. It changes a lot, from maybe shorts and a tank or tshirt if you're next class is P.E., to maybe a sweater and sweats if you're in a lecture hall during winter with no heating, or maybe it's a blistering summer day and there's no AC, i'd wear shorts and a tank. If people are comfortable with their bodies, that's their choice. Nobody is forcing anyone to look them, and it's a bad thing to be slut-shaming someone, since usually the aggressive feelings of dislike towards that outfit is due to superiority or envy. If you're giving a presentation, it depends on what it's about. If i give an informational presentation about sporks, i'd wear a suit. If I gave one about sailing, I'd wear shorts. If I gave one about polynesian dancing, I'd dress in the polynesian attire.Society focuses too much on a 'proper image', it's not such a bad thing to wear what makes you feel good, as long as you don't embarrass yourself. If what someone else is wearing makes you uncomfortable, whether because they're really hot or they have a muffin top and it's awkward, you shouldn't have to dress to fit other peoples molds.
Personally, I think there is no "right" attire for college as long as the person wheres pants and a shirt. I do not care much about dressing up for college because it is not the same environment as a career work place. I think it is fine to wear shorts and flip flops on a hot summer day on campus because most of the students grow up as if they are going to a dinner party. - Jeofrey Reyes
