8 Things You Need to Know About ADMU Fashion

Because we're not just smart, we're ~*aesthetic*~ too.

Ateneo is home to the best and the brightest. We work hard and play even harder, all while looking our best. But contrary to popular belief, we're not at all high maintenance and we just keep our OOTDs cool casual while staying on campus. Curious about the Atenean fashion? Here are some things you should probably know about the blue eagle aesthetic.

Ateneans are masters at dressing for the weather.

If the Philippines has two seasons: wet and dry, so does Ateneo! It can be scorching hot now and freezing cold in a snap. Case in point, SOM building? Freezing cold. JSEC, which is literally 500 meters from the SOM building? Scorching hot. Because of this, Ateneans have learned to adapt to the always changing temperature within the university.

JSEC fashion is a thing.

For those of you who are wondering whether Ateneo boys really do dress in boat shoes, shorts, and polo shirts in JSEC. Yes, they do. Don't get us wrong, not everyone who hangs out in JSEC needs to own a pair of boat shoes, but there's a 97% chance that they already have a pair or two in their shoe cabinets.

White shoes have a life of their own.

Probably the majority of Ateneans have a pair of all-white shoes and it's amazing how they keep it squeaky clean to think that the campus is full of trees, grass, mud, and soil!

No uniforms!

Most INTACT professors have probably already scared the freshies with the story that once upon a time, HR personnels and company executives started complaining that Ateneans didn't know how to dress up for job interviews, which led to Ateneo LS to consider making students wear uniforms. Obviously, the idea didn't sit well with the students. So here we are now, decades later, still rocking our crop tops and minis, probably oblivious to the sacrifices the alumnae made in their fight against the implementation of uniforms.

The dress code is pretty chill!

Most people wear whatever they want whenever they want. The few exceptions include entering SOM Department and TH131 with Fr. Dacanay.

Ateneo Trade is LYF.

Need a pair of shoes sold only in the US? Go to Ateneo Trade. Need to buy cute clothes on a budget? Head on over to Ateneo Trade! Looking for tap shoes/red pants/a Harley Quinn costume/an eight-million-peso Louis Vuitton watch? The answer is easy—ATENEO. TRADE!

ID laces are a fashion statement. Not to mention a personal statement, too!

Because not wearing your ID within campus is a mortal sin, different ID lace variations are available. Whether you're buying one from the bookstore or you stick with the lace they give you during the enrollment, you can be sure that when it comes to Ateneo fashion, an ID lace is a must.

Expect a lot of model off-duty looks straight from real models!

There are so many fashionable people in Ateneo that it gets a little intimidating when it comes to style. Almost everyone has great style, not to mention the fact that we are home to a crazy amount of model students—from Hye Won Jang to Kelsey Merritt!

When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.

You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.

You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
