‘Don’t dress like Kim Kardashian" Queen’s University tells graduates

by

Oueen's University of Belfast is in hot water after offering controversial fashion tips to it's female graduates.

After registering for the graduation, students were directed to a page called "Style tips for graduation week: Wear it well.' 

"Short skirts and cleavage on show are totally out of the question. Think Grace Kelly, not Kim Kardashian, at least until the day is done: you can always change before heading out," advised the page, which has since been removed from the Universities website.

The tips were from former student Thom Dickerson, who runs his own self-titled private tailoring company based in Belfast, according to the Belfast Telegraph,

"Possibly the biggest mistake I see at graduation is girls treating the event like a night out," he wrote.

Students and social media users alike were outraged by the "tips."

"Advising people that this is a formal occasion and therefore formal attire is expected is fine. Picking on two female celebrities and separating them into "good" and "bad" as an example of what areas of their body they don't want women to show is deeply patronising," said one Facebook user. 

"You're wearing robes covering your outfit for the duration of the ceremony anyway, what does it matter to them what you're wearing before or after?" commented one student.

"You pay enough money to attend you're own graduation, you should be able to turn up in hot pants if you want," said another.

The post also recommended "discreet safety pins" for ladies to wear to avoid any "last minute wardrobe disasters".
