Monkey See, Monkey Do

  • Breaking out. Upcoming singer Miss Mykie introduces herself to the music industry with an alluring style.

The repetitive fashion sense is at an all time high as males wear their freshly re-released retro Jordan's, crisp army-camouflage trousers, topped with a Ralph Lauren Polo shirt. Not too long after, you see another male with similar threads and become aware of the unoriginality across the youth generation. Many young ladies on the other hand stay in uniform as they incorporate foreign weaves, crop tops, and high-waist shorts into their daily attire.
Both genders are drained of the constant style from everyone that crosses their paths, but do nothing to set the new trend. It may be that the urgency to stay up to date as well as the social need to be accepted affects certain individuals. Another issue faced is that many students may not be aware of the appropriateness of a higher institution of learning environement.
Freshman nursing major Brianni Aubry blames this continuous fad on the hip-hop culture. "Some people who listen to rap music are trying too hard to be like the artist," said Aubry. The urban community is altered generation by generation. This sense of style is just another phase like the pinup during the 20s and bellbottom during the 70s.
Although majority of the urban community choose this particular custom, there are still many who don't follow the mimicked appearance. "If everybody is trying to be like everybody then there's no diversity," said freshman Ashley Miller.
What makes an admirable person so admirable is their ability to be themselves. Oscar Wilde said, "Be yourself; everyone else is already taken."
Don't lose yourself in the world. Originality is what makes us all unique.
