By calling out a clothing conformity last week (read "The good, the bad and the UGGly" here), I made females on my campus feel judged for dressing a certain way. The truth is, I respect people beyond their clothing choices, no matter how unflattering to my fashion-conscious eyes the outfit is. That still doesn't take away the fact that fashion says something about you, even saying your priority is to be comfortable and warm.

- Calf-high socks
