Living in Athens, there are not many places to shop for clothes to wear out to the next big party, to win over people during recruitment, or to help impress the cute boy who sits next to you in marketing. Luckily, there are some very cute boutiques on campus; however– as cute as they are– there are not many options for clothing, and the prices can sometimes be higher than you’d want them to be.
Think about the last time you saw a really cool pair of jeans or an stunningly quirky belt, when you asked that person where they got the item, did they proudly respond “a thrift store”? My bet would be yes. Today, it is becoming more trendy to shop at your local Goodwill or consignment shop than it is to go to the mall. The appeal to thrifting is not surprising, with the (typically) great pricing and unique pieces, many people are turning away from the crowded malls to smaller, charismatic thrift shops. Whether it is for environmental, economic or personal preference, thrifting is the new “it” thing to do.

The 2016 Victoria’s Secret Swim Special aired March 9 to give women an inside look at the hottest swimsuits on some of the most beautiful models in the world. After seeing the Swim Special, it becomes obvious the brand lacks one thing — extended sizing.
Many women exalt Victoria’s Secret as the go-to option for lingerie on the market due to the company’s various 1,000 locations and large advertising budget. According to IBISWorld report in 2015, Victoria’s Secret brands have reported control of 61.8 percent of the U.S. lingerie market. This dominant lingerie retailer excludes curvy or plus-sized women who do not fit into the maximum size of an XL/18 and cup size 40 DDD. For swimwear, the size range is smaller, with the largest size being a 38 DD.
Festival Season may as well be its own spring fashion show. Celebrities like Vanessa Hudgens strut around Coachella in hippie collections, while Kylie Jenner can be seen in a leisure glam look of the rich and famous. In Appalachian Ohio, the fest season is its own holiday, where the annual drink is beer and the jolly cheers of drunk words can be heard loud for all to hear. The commencement of the fest season would not be complete without the runway spring styles Ohio University students adorn.
There are certain celebrities, trends, and even television shows that come to mind when you think 90s fashion. Take all of these elements tied into one and you get 90s babe Rachel Green, played by Jennifer Aniston on the famous television show Friends. Let’s face it, the ribbed crop tops and mom jeans of our generation are just replicas of clothes that former trendsetters such as Rachel rocked back in the day. Rachel’s style evolved throughout the show as she transformed from a coffeehouse waitress to a businesswoman, however, she always stayed true to her effortlessly trendy looks that many of us (like myself) are still applauding 20 years later.
