What is there not to love about Columbia being a college town? We have a great sports mascot, an animal that does not natively exist in this state. We have a great football team, basketball team, softball team, journalism school, vet school, law school, etc. People get into heated arguments about how great we are against other schools. Everything is great in CoMO. Living is cheap. We have great nightlife like Shiloh and Harpos. Every town and city have a particular style associated with it. This, is Columbia.
Sandals and Socks
The perfect dress shoes. It’s even better if it’s Adidas or some brand that supports sweatshops. Oh, throw in some derby closures or tiger graphic for a nice touch.
Best color for socks? Dingy white with lint piled up from many washing machine adventures.
Tilted flat bills
Ah, the American twist to the iconic french beret. French beret are for girls and artists. If you’re a guy, and you know that you are hot sh-t, throw on a flat bill and tilt it. Don’t wear it backwards because that’s for a–holes. You don’t want to be associated with those people. I don’t want you to be associated with those people.
Just make sure your flat bill doesn’t say something KU related. M-I-Z, remember?
Sweat pants, oversized T-shirt, extremely teased hair, full face of makeup.
The perfect good impression outfit. This look is very versatile. You can wear it to class, office hours, Applebees, Columbia Mall or to your friend’s place for your weekly Jersey Shore watch party.
The trick to this look? To spend 2 hours on hair and makeup, but as little time as possible on picking which T-shirt to go with your week-old sweats. If you’re not feeling too baggy that day, throw on some leggings to wear as pants because they accentuate your booty.
Unnecessary Mizzou related outfits
Mizzou T-shirts are SO overrated. Everyone has it. Worse part of everyone having it? They all have the same ones. Wait, no. I’m just assuming that because they all look alike.
You can be different because you’re unique like a snowflake. Why not a Mizzou bikini? It’s perfect. What better way to sell something than sex? Tell you little cousins during your summer family barbecue to go to Mizzou as you exercise your school spirit in a Mizzou bikini.
How about a Mizzou outfit for your pooch? Dogs need clothes too. Especially small dogs less than 5 pounds. They get really cold, I think? That’s why they shiver and bark so much, right? It must be.
Other great Mizzou items to own? Mizzou bandanas, Mizzou beach coverups, Mizzou iPhone case, Mizzou jewelry, Mizzou bedsheets, Mizzou watch, Mizzou soda, etc.
