    “Oh no, you didn’t: on campus faux pas”

    Fashion Facts this week headed out on campus in stealth mode, seeking out the worst fashions we could find. To begin, students were not that unstylish. There were lab coats, plaid bottoms and a large amount of sagging ‘Cats basketball shorts. There were also some great outfits, so props to UA students! We were surprised at how hard it was to search for a true fashion faux pas.
