From the hood

After hearing about the WOZA (wear only ZA) campaign a couple of weeks ago I became intrigued about what I could possibly do on a small scale that could work for the average student and possibly influence them to support the campaign. This, along with last week’s beautiful sunny weather that suddenly turned to rain made me think about how even the stylish student can buckle under the pressure of a bit of wind and rain, resulting in something that looks a bit like a beggar wearing a random piece of university attire. I cannot help but cringe when seeing a fellow Ikey out in public looking like this while wearing a UCT hoodie! Even though we were brainwashed by teachers and prefects to take pride in wearing our school uniforms, I think something positive can be taken from our schooling experiences. Why wouldn’t you want to wear your campus hoodie with pride instead of donning it only on laundry day when you have nothing else to wear? We sometimes forget that we are in the top percentage of individuals that are able to attend a world class academic institution. And all that crap about people not judging you by your appearance surely comes from the mouth of a Shlumpadinka (a word coined by Oprah to describe a frumpy person) who mopes around campus dragging his feet and walking with his head face-down. It’s time to reclaim that energy and excitement you had before you first arrived at varsity and it’s time to put some effort into the way you wear your campus hoodie!

The possibilities for this student staple are endless, it just takes a bit of time and effort to create a personalized look that will take you from campus creep to campus cool. So whether you’re a student or a graduate, take out that hoodie, give it a wash and have fun creating looks with items in your wardrobe. *Thanks to Adam and Mia for playing along and showing you how they gave their hoodies a new lease on life.

Peace, Love & Fashion
