While I was eating lunch the other day, the southside hallway exploded in laughter. Senior Alyssa Sykuta came sprinting down the ramp and nearly skidded along the tile as she stopped by me. “Lauren,” she said, grinning, “I found you a Style of the Week.”

I’ll admit; I was a little anxious. Style of the Week was running along some obscure lines as it was. Some people wanted “cute” fashions, others wanted items that were crazy, wild and “unique.” Some wanted more culture, others wanted to reflect the trend in the student body. And all of this was supposed to be defined by what is “fashionable.”

But I trusted Alyssa. I told her to go ahead, and she rushed back up the ramp, snapped a few pictures, and returned to me with an image of sophomore Nick Whitworth.

I burst out laughing. He was wearing a pair of yellow tiger stripe tights with a blue hoodie and mailman hat. I knew it was time to take a risk with this Style of the Week.

Name: Nick Whitworth, sophomore

Situation: Whitworth, an avid fantasy football player, lost a bet to senior Brad Meister. The deal was that whoever lost the fantasy football match would be forced to wear tights for an entire day at school. Whitworth, losing by two points, chose a pair of tiger stripe tights.

Hoodie: Dick’s Sporting Goods

Hat: Gift from uncle

Shoes: Dick’s Sporting Goods

Tights: Found in parents’ closet

“A couple people have taken off my [sweatpants] to see the tights,” Whitworth said. “It’s been very embarassing … But I lost the bet.”
