We asked a few LC alumni to tell us about the fashions they rocked during their college days – the ones they wish could be forgotten as well
as the ones worthy of bringing back.
Here’s what our alumni had to say:
Ok, maybe we rocked the turtle neck a bit too often and the white tube socks weren’t a good idea, but all in all nothing made me shudder. That may be because, for the most part, LCC was a rock school, not a disco school – more Pink Floyd than Saturday Night Fever. Now the HAIR, that is a totally different matter – too long, too messy, too close to mullet status and way too tight perms – but at least we still had it!
Broadcast Journalism 1979
My husband Bill and I met at Lethbridge College. How could I not resist his mullet? Spikes on top, long hair in the back. Ugh. And you weren’t ready for classes if you didn’t tease your hair for an hour or make sure your bangs were gloriously back-combed in a strange looking fringe. Also cringe worthy was the trend of wearing ultra short shorts.
Communication Arts 1983
Some of my most frequented outfits included pretty much anything leopard print, belted shirts and dresses, my LCSA T-shirts and bootcut jeans. While I don’t rock the belted looks or my LCSA T-shirt as much as I used to, I am still a big fan of animal print. I jokingly consider it to be my neutral wardrobe piece!
