Girls: Stereotype Breakers

By HALLIE LANDIS

Girls who don’t typically dress to impress are sometimes labeled as tomboys. This label can be stereotypical though. Why should our comfort be judged?

Being a girl takes a lot of hard work. Some do enjoy putting an actual effort to look good everyday. Others, including me, just don’t care enough. Self esteem is the main indicator. The tightness of a girl’s clothing does not define her self confidence.¬†Nowadays, girls are more comfortable wearing wardrobe pieces that are more compliant for guys.

Shoes are a girl’s best friend. What I have began noticing are construction boots, like Timberlands, being worn not just by guys anymore. Not everyone has just guy friends, so why can’t that apply to shoes as well?

One of the most popular pajama outfits a girl can wear is men’s boxer briefs and a big t-shirt. Comfort is one of the main keys to a good night’s sleep. When guys grow out of their clothes, why not put them into good use?

I, again, enjoy wearing big t-shirts even during the day. When there are no plans made forcing you to look more decent than you’d like, comfort is a go-to. Hoodies also provide just that.

If you want to take your comfort to another level, why not try cargo pants? Baggy pants such as these are convenient. They provide various pockets relieving the struggle of carrying around a bag or purse.

Let’s just face it, everyone cherishes a pair of sweatpants. All that matters is that you’re happy with yourself. Whether you’re a guy or a girl, dress however you feel. Fashion allows you to break down barriers, one stereotype at a time.
