Just because we’re a little obsessed with fashion in the YKYLF staff room doesn’t mean we don’t get swept up in March Madness, even if I did pick my favorite team based on uniform colours. (Hi, Duke!) Who doesn’t love some rivalry and bracketology? And we’re not just talking about basketball. We’re pairing off characters from some of our favourite shows and you get to decide who moves forward to the big dance and who gets cut.
Unlike basketball, this isn’t a competition based on who is the best. No. This one is based on who is most inappropriately dressed. Because honestly, most of our favourite characters have a tendency to dress totally inappropes for just about every occasion and weather condition. Serena can barely keep her macaron covered, Aria’s been spotted in fluorescent yellow clogs (is there ever an occasion for those?), Emma favors the Daytime Glamour and Nolan pops his collar at formal occasions. And those are just our number one seeds.
Who will win in the Jeremy Jones versus Will Schuster Vest Off? Are Rachel Berry’s kneesocks enough to get her to the Sweet Sixteen? Will Lemon Breeland’s 1940s styles take her all to the Final Four? Will the Charlie Sheen-inspired shirts on the Irish Kid from Glee pull off a Cinderella story and beat out our wee little lollipop Mads? Can Quinn’s fugly boots take her all the way to that One Shining Moment? Anything can happen in March and it’s up to you to decide which of these 64 characters is the Most Inappropriately Dressed.
Enormous golf claps to staffers Ann Hepburn (who wrote all 32 match descriptions), and Lesley-Anne Steelworthy (who came up with this idea and did the seeding).
