Whatever the reason, no matter how you’re traveling you will find these three fashion crimes committed by at least one person. Some people simply don’t care, and others just need a little perspective. So read with caution because I would say 7 out of 10 people have committed at least one of the following:

1. The “I don’t give a fuck” outfit

We all know we’ve pulled this one before—despite how “fashionable” or “trendy” you claim to be. It’s just that sometimes we really, with all honesty, just. Don’t. Give. A. Fuck. You just spent the past week pulling all-nighters while studying for midterms and eating little to no food. So when it came time to leave for spring break, you just didn’t have the energy to get dressed up for the plane/train/bus/car, or whatever mode of transportation you use to attend to your travel needs. And in all honesty, you probably didn’t even start packing until about a half hour before you were scheduled to leave. You just want to get to wherever you’re going and could give a rat’s ass about who sees you on the way, just as long as you can sleep on the ride there.

2. The “painfully fashionable” outfit

High heels, floppy hat, skinny jeans, mini dress, AND tons and tons of accessories. What in the world was she thinking? You’ll find her stopped at checkpoint, spending 10 minutes picking apart her outfit to go through the metal detectors and, afterwards, trying to put everything back on. I don’t care how good you look when traveling, less is WAY more. Not only will you get through these tedious tasks without much hassle, you also won’t piss off the people behind you in the process. And I wont even mention the five carry-on bags you’ll save.

3. The “college or sorority/fraternity billboard” outfit

Yes, we know you’re proud. Hell, we’re damn proud too. Syracuse University students have a top ranked basketball team, the No. 1 journalism school, and most students are in a top tier sorority/fraternity—why not flaunt it? But here’s a reality check: it’s tacky. There’s no need to wear Syracuse gear from head to toe; a simple sweatshirt and jeans will do the trick. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying you shouldn’t flaunt your orange pride or letters, I’m just sick of seeing people at the airport look like a walking advertisement. It’s embarrassing, and I’m almost scared to walk up to you and mention the fact that I ALSO go to ‘Cuse. So tone it down, and show a little less public pride.
