The ultimate fall fashion guide

The ultimate fall fashion guide

Back in our younger years, the final weeks of August meant one thing: back to school shopping. For me, this time was always bittersweet because it meant the end of another summer, but at least I was guaranteed a trip to the mall for new clothes.  As a child, it was an unwritten rule that I needed a new outfit […]

Fads that should never re-surface

Spring trends have hit stores in full force and with any luck we will soon be able to enjoy a mildly warm day outside without the fear of a random snowstorm. In regards to spring 2013, some of the trends we’ve seen before are returning for another season: statement sunglasses, Bermuda shorts, leather and bold stripes. Fashion works in a […]

Same pants, different prints

As difficult as it may be to believe now, rumour has it that we will be enjoying an early spring this year. While I doubt that this spring weather will enter moderate temperatures until April, the preparation for spring shopping does not have to wait. Already hitting the shelves of numerous clothing stores and gracing the pages of magazines, it’s […]

Shopping vintage

As a proud shopaholic and university student, I believe that everyone should learn to budget and utilize every option they have available to them. In this instance, I believe vintage shopping should be experienced at least once. If you’re unsure of where to start, check out Meow Boutique. Located on the corner of King St and Bridgeport, Meow Boutique has […]

Stylish ruts

The phrase “new year, new me” is possibly the most overstated phrase between December and January, because in most aspects, nothing changes especially the weather. I’ve noticed that Waterloo’s climate is in a constant flux between terribly cold and deceptively warm, which is bad for my wardrobe and my immune system. How is it possible to be the “new you” […]

Dress to beat exam stress

It’s that time of the year again, exams. The time where sleep is for the weak and only the strongest manage to shower on a regular basis. Between fighting for study space on campus and reserving energy, most students often opt to throw fashion out the window and go to school wearing sweats. Here’s my personal philosophy: if you dress […]

A safe purchase?

I have a love/hate relationship with Forever 21. A couple of years ago, I decided to stop shopping there for numerous reasons. I found that when Forever 21 penetrated the Canadian market, their quality took a nosedive. I feel like if I buy anything today, the lifespan will only be around six months to a year, which isn’t worth the […]

Buying into fast fashion

A couple weeks ago, I wrote about individual style and the realization that even when we are trying to be different, somehow we all end up looking the same based on the products we tend to by. As stated before, there’s nothing wrong with styling ourselves in a similar manner. As university students, most of us rely on basics and […]

Going out in the cold

The summer heat is definitely over and Waterloo is living up to its name with cold winds and rainy days. This is expected though; the fall season marks the literal fall of pleasant sunny temperatures without having to layer up. During daylight hours, it’s not so bad, assuming that most of you are wearing warm jackets and using umbrellas. However, […]

Individualism vs. trends

I would like to think that the general Laurier population is pretty trendy on an objective level. However, since fashion and style are so subjective, after all, beauty is in the eye of the beholder,  I think it’s time to rethink what it means to be a stylish individual. That being said, after much observation around our campus, here is […]
