    It is quite ironic when Che shirts (which I won't go into now) are bought using daddy's oil company money.

    Just wear what you like and feel comfortable in. If someone judges you by what you wear then they aren't really worth knowing/ interacting with

    If you're posh, you're posh. I stick to the 'be yourself' message. You presumably want to find people who like you, not your projected 'university image'...
    I agree

    A lot of the girls seem to wear some awesome (expensive?) stuff even though I don't know much about fashion and most of the dudes seem to dress casually. Unless it's a student night where some will dress up in themed constumes hehe

    stereotypes exist for a reason...even if they are not universally applicable, certain types of people tend to group together and the like minded tend to find one another. so wear what you like and be yourself and you will find friends. also, if other people want to pigeon hole you and not get to know you based on how you dress or on superficial impressions, then they are not the type of people who you want to know anyway.

    University is, in my experience, a lot more accepting of people that don't wish to be put in any definite group and will wear whatever they want. That said, you will always get certain types anyway; the sports students who wear flip flops and board shorts all year round, the ones that dress up in heels and look great, and the ones that found the nearest thing to throw on for an early morning lecture.

    This is more about fashion but schmeh:

    I'd just avoid wearing mini-skirts and painting your skin orange and sleeping with the whole rugby team, at once.

    :yep: sounds about right! Met loads at my uni - they seem to have an obsession with going to Thailand and "travelling" (not travelling anywhere in particular, just "travelling", usually having no jobs yet miraculously managing to spend a month in say the States).

    Also I'm going through a phase of anti-capitalism, anti-establishment persuasions at the moment. Ironically enough while working for an international oil company...

    People get stereotyped and put into boxes everywhere they go. It's part of life, just don't worry about it. Dress how you want and listen to whatever music you want, there's bound to be other people at uni with the same interests as you.

    Yeah but if you do that, you might get ostrichised.
