Fall (even more) in Love with Flannel

With things like football season, pumpkin picking (yes we still do that), and camping-filled weekends ahead of us, we’re going to need the perfect wardrobe item that’s equal parts snug and stylish to keep us warm on those chilly autumn days and nights. Now, who says flannel has to automatically conjure up thoughts of Nirvana-inspired grunge and scrunchies a la (there are really way too many references we could make here)? We get nostalgia and all but c’mon, when were mom jeans ever actually cute? We say throw out those stereotypes and hype up your fall style with this eternally fashionable piece that’s going to look cute, casual, chic, and oh-so fabulous, all at once!

So dive in, find your fave style, and rock the look with Cher Horowitz-esque confidence (Clueless anyone?!). The 90’s may be well in the past but who doesn’t love a good comeback?! Even …

New York City Inspires A Twist On Menswear

New York City is not only one of the fashion capitals of the world, but it’s also a fashion world all on its own. Whether it’s the woman who bikes around Lafayette with her head held high, sunglasses on, with a pair of the sickest huarache sandals or the lady entrepreneur, sporting a black pencil skirt and a red blazer, waiting to get her coffee, New York City is a fashion world that will always attract twenty-year-old Jamie Lee Buhain. This Rutgers University business student talks to YHM about what inspires her sense of style and how she makes it her own.

Fashion is essentially centered on culture and even if I have not been to many different fashion …

The Flashback Fashion Trend

Dressed in a plaid shirtdress and combat boots, the window display provided a blast from the past. Plaid may seem like a trend reserved for the chillier seasons, but this year it decided to make an early comeback, and we’re welcoming it with open arms. So let us attempt a bold 90s redo, shall we?

Continue this look with rugged combat boots, a 90s staple that gives serious edge to the outfit. This hip outfit is perfect for trying out the latest funky trend in eyewear: round glasses. These sunglasses are stylish, fun, and avoid making you look like Harry Potter (not that looking …
