Walking into a Sephora, we’re constantly hit with the latest launches from brands and our holy grail products. Unfortunately, many of these high-end brands that we love can break the bank, especially for college students. Brands like NARS Cosmetics, Tarte Cosmetics and Anastasia Beverly Hills, Inc. can charge $30 for just one item, making them impractical for our wallets.
On Feb. 19, the world heard news of one of the most influential figures in fashion passing. Karl Lagerfeld, who was widely known as the creative director of luxury fashion house Chanel, died at the age of 85.
It’s a big deal when one of the biggest names in music and one of the biggest luxury conglomerates decide to team up. Rihanna, pop star turned fashion mogul, has partnered with LVMH. While some may not recognize this name, they definitely know the brands that they oversee: Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, Hennessy and BVLGARI, just to name a few. This is clearly a milestone in Rihanna’s career, as LVMH works with the some of the most luxurious and prestigious brands.
Over time, the fashion industry has gradually become much more inclusive. Representation has been a prominent issue within fashion, but today’s brands are now deciding that it is finally time for diversity. Models are no longer your standard tall and thin — they come in all races, shapes and sizes. Those in charge of brands are starting to diversify as well. Black designers are becoming more influential, whether it be through becoming the head of already established fashion houses or creating their own brands. These designers are changing fashion as we know it and have now become some of the most powerful in the industry.
We all have our celebrity style inspirations, whether it be Kylie Jenner’s daring and risqué outfits or Vanessa Hudgens’ boho glam. While we will definitely give them credit for being super stylish, our favorite celebrities typically have a team of stylists making sure they’re fashion-forward. Being able to come up with super fashionable looks takes some talent and a great eye, and lucky for us, there are plenty of style influencers giving out some serious style inspo.
In the age of Instagram, exposure to creativity and talent comes easily. Our discover pages are filled with everything we’re interested in, whether it be cute videos of puppies or Buzzfeed Tasty videos that we may never try to recreate. Instagram has become the best platform for showcasing beauty and talent through photo and video features. Celebrity makeup artists, hairstylists and stylists are thriving on Instagram, so if you need some inspiration, give these experts a follow.
The temperature is continuing to drop, and it seems that fall is slowly leaving and the harsh cold of the winter months isn’t that far away. In order to prep for this, investing in a great winter coat is a must. If you’re going to spend money a coat, make sure it lasts this winter and future seasons as well will be your best bet. I know that not all of us want to wear a typical down jacket from The North Face, but lucky for us, there are tons of warm jackets that are super on trend.
We love New York Fashion Week, and when thinking of fashion hubs, Paris and Milan might be some major cities that come to mind. One of the most innovative and fashion-forward places doesn’t seem to get the love it deserves, though: Tokyo. Iconic for its Harajuku fashion and being the birthplace of A Bathing Ape, Comme des Garçons and Uniqlo, Tokyo is far from an unfashionable city. From Oct. 15-21, designers showcased their latest and hottest looks, while show-goers, as always, let everyone know why Tokyo is known for its street style.
We’ve seen them in western films and country music awards. Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood and Jessica Simpson famously wear them. A staple feature of country and the rodeo, the cowboy boot has a pretty straightforward reputation. Fashion has recently changed that. Shown on models all over the runway, the western leather boot is slowly becoming a closet staple.
Apple picking and pumpkin spiced lattes are great, but one of the best things about fall is the fashion: cozy sweaters, leather boots and oversized flannels. These are some staples that are most likely in all of our closets, but while these are essentials, some statement pieces should make their way into our closets to add a little more life to our outfits. Why spend money on a piece that will only look good with one outfit? Statement pieces may seem really tricky, but they can go beyond fall and become a piece you love to pair with all your essentials in any season.
When imagining color schemes for the fall and winter, we think of neutrals, some burgundys, browns, navy blues and mustard yellows. The last thing on our minds are bright, neon colors. But, this upcoming season is all about blinding fluorescents. As we saw during New York Fashion Week last month, bright, saturated hues made their way onto the runway. While these colors may seem unwearable, it’s easier than you think to incorporate this 80s-inspired trend into your everyday wardrobe.
Business attire can be something that many of us feel hesitant to venture into. It all seems very intimidating, uncomfortable and most importantly, expensive. When internships and corporate jobs come around, we find ourselves spending money on clothes that we’ll only be wearing at the office. This unfamiliar world of structured blazers, trousers and loafers can actually be incorporated into our everyday wardrobes. These splurges are worth it when we actually find a way to wear them outside of the office. By making simple swaps, office attire can feel like streetwear.
New York Fashion Week (NYFW) just ended, and like always, it was filled with tons of memorable moments, over-the-top shows and of course, trends that we’ll be wearing all fall and winter long. From Sept. 6 to Sept. 14, New York was filled with fashion lovers, whether it be designers, bloggers or everyday fashion followers. NYFW dictates the trends that we’ll be seeing everywhere very soon, and these certain trends dominated the runway.
We have all heard a bunch of rules when it comes to dressing well: no white socks with dress pants, no visible bra straps ... you get the idea. Luckily, we now live in an era where fashion is less about following the status quo, and more about people feeling comfortable expressing their own style. For example, today’s trends have proven that it is completely acceptable to mix patterns and wear horizontal stripes, even if you have a bigger chest. Still, wearing white after Labor Day seems to be up for debate, with fashionistas starting to prove that it is not such a fashion faux pas as it once was. This outdated rule does not have to restrict us from wearing our favorite white jeans all year-round. It did not stop Coco Chanel from making white a staple color all year in the 1920s, so keep your most-loved white pieces in your rotation.
For many students at a Big Ten school like Rutgers, game day is one of the most exciting times of fall semester. Often found relentlessly cheering for the Scarlet Knights, Rutgers students are certainly prideful, and festive game day outfits are another popular way fans are showing off their spirit. The era of just painting your face and throwing on a Rutgers T-shirt is long gone, and game day fashion has become something fueled by creativity: There is a lot of cutting, gluing and "making it work" going on. The season has just started, so there is plenty of time to put your own twist on these tailgate trends.
Being on a budget is quite common for students, meaning frequent shopping in fast fashion stores like Forever 21 and Zara seem to be our go-to. For many things in our wardrobe, such as T-shirts, super trendy pieces or active wear, fast fashion retailers are not bad options. There are pieces, that are worth splurging on, though. Paying the big bucks for a high-quality item will definitely be worth it, as it will last longer and become a staple in your closet.
As April approaches, a lot of us have already gotten started on our spring cleaning rituals. We are throwing away packets of readings from last semester, getting rid of any food that may have expired and, most importantly, dealing with our closets. Our wardrobe is an essential place that is involved with spring cleaning, as we may not realize that there are so many things we should get rid of. With new trends coming our way, we need to make room in our closets for our new favorite pieces of clothing.
While the current weather may not be as warm and bright as we hope, spring is still technically here, and our clothing can channel the high hopes we have for the start of the season. New York Fashion Week (NYFW) proved that this spring should be full of bright colors, so we can switch our dark winter attire to fresh and bright colors for this season. We can take cues from the runway, as it was filled with bright colors and fun patterns.
Fashion lovers’ favorite week recently passed, gracing us with designer collections that we can hope to someday own. New York Fashion Week, which happens twice a year, showcases the gorgeous, intricate and over-the-top collections by our favorite designers. For the majority of us, our college budgets don’t give us the ability to afford Gucci or Balenciaga, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t follow the trends. Each designer creates looks that make each brand unique from one another, but there are trends that are commonly seen throughout the runway. While we most likely aren’t showing up to our 8 a.m. covered in sequins and feathers, there are trends that we can easily incorporate into our everyday wardrobes without breaking the bank as well.
Waking up to 30-degree weather and having to rush to a Monday morning class makes it very tempting to just roll out of bed in the sweats we slept in, but our winter attire doesn’t always have to consist of Rutgers hoodies and the first pair of sweatpants we see in our closet. According to the groundhog, there’s still a month left of winter, so it’s never too late to swap out our go-to cozy outfit for clothes that will make us look and feel good.
