The results were intriguing; the comments on the blog, even better. Here’s how you readers chose what to wear in seventh grade:
29% of you, the largest portion, said they wore whatever their friends were wearing.
17% replied that they wore whatever was in their closet, and another 17% said they wore whatever they could afford.
A relatively slender portion (8%) reported that they wore whatever was on their floor, or whatever didn’t get them busted for uniform violation, with the smallest portion (4%) saying they wore whatever the cool kids were wearing or whatever the older kids were wearing.
Then there were the 13% who reported, “Other.” I’m hoping those were some of the stories recounted here. They were pretty great.
Funnily enough, no one said that they chose to wear whatever no one else was wearing. Is that because we all now realize that almost any seemingly ground-breaking trend was started by someone else, or that nobody started trying to be original until later years?
In any case, thanks for chiming in! Off to the next poll–What did you think of your parents in seventh grade?
