Ladies, please put some clothes on

Jenna Kefauver/Staff Writer

Ladies,

11200 SW 8th St. is not the location of Club FIU. So please stop dressing like it is.

I understand it’s Miami and it’s 95 degrees outside. But that still doesn’t condone many of the things I’ve seen people wear.

There is no reason that the first thing I see on a Tuesday is you wobbling around in your 6-inch stilettos and your 3-inch “skirt”. Again, this isn’t the club. And if you’re just leaving the club…well, glad to see you’re focusing on your studies…

I’m not trying to deny the fact that I, too, wear short dresses and skirts and shorts, but there is a time and a place for these, and that time is not 9 a.m. in line at Starbucks, five seconds away from another Janet Jackson “wardrobe malfunction”.

Another thing, lace shirts require undershirts. The point of a lace shirt is to put a camisole underneath it. I don’t want to look up and see your black bra underneath your white lace shirt. Or really any bra under your lace shirt. It’s just not cute.

Nor does a sports bra suffice as a shirt. That’s decent in a gym, not in Biology. And it still doesn’t suffice if you wear a giant ripped t-shirt over it that falls down exposing everything anyway.

And if you’re trying to impress someone, well, great. But it’s completely possible to impress someone while clothed. Whoever you’re trying to impress isn’t going to be worth it if all he or she wants to see you wearing is, well, nothing.

And yes, there are ways to show a little skin and do it tastefully, and to the girls who do it that way, thank you. Thank you for not subjecting me to more than I ever needed to see.

I’m not saying you have to wear a parka or a turtleneck and baggy sweats everyday, I know it’s impossibly hot outside, but just tone it down.

And guys, if I can see more cleavage on you than on a girl, it’s time to get a real shirt and not a tank top. Unless you’re at the beach, you need a shirt.

This goes for both the gentlemen and the ladies: pull up your pants, please. It’s not cute. I don’t need to see that much of anyone’s underwear, much less a person whom I’ve never met.

If you wonder if your skirt is too short or your shirt is too low cut, it probably is. So just go change.
