    Wearing salmon-ish coloured chinos back in college (they looked like this: https://5yearproject.files.wordpress...s-tyrwhitt.jpg) and sub-consciously grabbing the nearest coat when I was leaving in a rush in the morning. It was a red, bulky, winter coat, didn't dawn on me what I had done until I was on the bus because I was in such a panic for being late AGAIN

    I bought a new pair of jeans and wore them on a holiday to Italy (without bringing any other jeans because I assumed that it would be too hot). Unfortunately the top button was a bit dodgy and kept pinging off every time I put too much pressure on it. So I spent the majority of my holiday worrying about going through customs and my jeans suddenly falling down. It wasn't even very hot that week!

    Wearing a big arse square waterproof oversize red coat everywhere I went. Indoors and outdoors. In wet and hot weathers.

    In the first year of college, I had this ongoing competition with my friend; each day we would try to out-weird eachother through our outfits, while still looking somewhat slutty :/ So we'd both wear fishnets, patterned tights, thigh-highs, leather, lace and velvet clothes (mainly black, as we are both into gothic fashion) with strange-looking accessories, plastic shoes, colourful hippy shirts, everything with a light hipster-retro vibe and questionably stylish. I know, I know.
    Maybe it didn't look that bad, as I got quite a few compliments. The whole experience also made me more open to buying clothes in charity shops. But just the whole attention-seeking aspect makes me shiver inside when I think about it.

    I went through a weird 'phase' in primary school - everything had to be some sickly sweet shade of sugar-pink/lime-green/purple/orange. I probably looked like halloween candy. Jelly sandals, suspender belts (for kids, guys - the ones that attach to your jeans)... I could go on.
    Secondary school - tacky ill-fitting chavvy jeans that spelled some horrendous word across my arse in sequins, jack-up type trousers (but hey, that was school uniform. So glad I switched back to the plain QE skirt later), tinsel hair scrunchies (not just at Christmas!), baby blue EVERYTHING...
    Sixth-form - black EVERYTHING. Baggy jeans that fell half-way down my arse and got trapped under my shoes everytime I walked, huge heavy Hawkshead boots that weighed a ton every time I lifted a foot off the ground like I was trying to recreate man's first step on the moon. So I shuffled! In my defense, that was nearly 10 years ago so...
    Biggest mistake I made in the past few years was wearing my leather jacket with my wrist-warmers and APC shirts. Apparently, I was such a fright the librarian had to follow me behind a stack of books to ID me. Never happened before in all my time at uni so.

    I'm 21 and I mainly dress in stupid video game t-shirts and jeans/converse...it's annoying actually, I want to dress smart and look a bit more sophsiticated and older but I'm rubbish with that stuff. I have no idea what suits me.
