How should you dress to go to Uni as a 'grown up'? Casual? Trendy? Tweed- tastic? The options for your contemporary academics are endless. Do you have a picture to add? Tweet to @thesiswhisperer. Let's workshop this problem - Pinterest style.
Academic gown located at ANU post office. Not actually my colours, but not going to quibble. Passed on Bonnet and hood: don't want to get them in the soup.
I've been asked to wear academic dress to an event tonight. Cue panic. I do not own my own robes. Al kindly doing the ring around to see if she can locate some for me...
On our last day in Edinburgh, @thefellowette and I dressed up as Scottish academic warrior maidens. Don't try this at your next committee meeting...
Sitting in the airport lounge and noticed man opposite me casting curious looks. This made me realise that I am wearing a rather bizzare combination of geometric tweed skirt and ANU hoodie. My top half thinks it's an undergraduate, while my bottom half stays firmly in middle aged academic territory.
Has academic fashion gone mainstream? While breakfasting and reading 'Local scene', the style and fashion pages of my local newspaper, I noticed this picture of Peter Bayliss. He describes himself as a university media lecturer on his way home from work and his personal style as 'easy to manage'. Bayliss lists Johnny Depp as his style icon - well played Mr Bayliss!
Tweed, corduroy and a fringed cravat. I am a walking academic cliche. @bjkraal challenged me to provide evidence and here it is.
One twin is graphic design faculty, the other is the thesis whisperer. Can you pick which one is which?
