Monokini So Teeny: the Return of One-Piece Swimsuits →  September 12, 2016

The smell of chlorine. Humid locker rooms. The coach’s shrill whistle. This scene used to come to mind when I thought of one-piece swimsuits. During required swimming classes in middle school, I decided one-piece swimsuits weren’t “cool” to wear on vacation or at the beach. I associated them with childhood or with athletics; it never […]

Adidas Superstardom →  April 26, 2016

There was a time when you could tell which hallmate was in the bathroom stall in front of you just by looking at their shoes. This useful skill has become harder and harder to master because of the sudden arrival of Adidas Superstars. All jokes aside, I see people wearing them everyday on Locust, in […]

f you’re reading this, you probably want to dress well. In fact, I’ll go one step further: if you’re reading this, you probably not only want to dress well, but also care how you do it. This is, of course, a double-edged sword. Once you start caring about how you dress, you open up Pandora’s […]

It’s a Fling Thing: Festival Fashion →  April 20, 2016

Penn students’ favorite holiday has once again come and gone, and just like any good concert or festival, Penn’s Spring Fling has distinct fashion trends that follow it from year to year.

A Broader Perspective: London Calling →  April 19, 2016

One of the most taxing parts of studying abroad was constantly using a different language. I didn’t realize how mentally exhausting it could be until my first few months in France. So by the time October rolled around, I was incredibly ready to take a little break and visit my English-speaking comrades across the pond. […]

Fashion & Hip Hop →  April 18, 2016

usic and fashion go hand in hand. Both are examples of the highest forms of self expression, of giving the world around you a glimpse into the inner workings of what makes you, well, you. I am a huge hip-hop fan. I’ve seen concerts for artists like  Chance the Rapper, Childish Gambino, J. Cole, Drake – you […]

Cruelty-Free Beauty: An Introduction →  April 14, 2016

It is an old and tired topic, yet one that we can’t seem to truly shake: cosmetic testing on animals. As fashion- and beauty-inclined college students, what can we do? We can stop ignoring this problem and make our thoughts heard. But how? We’re busy and, well, tired. I want to send strongly worded letters […]
