Toni & Katrina of Under The Sweater Talk Goals, Blogging & Feminism

Throughout the years, I’ve learned that women supporting other women is one of the greatest things to ever occur. When we go through adolescence, we see girls fighting each other rather than standing next to each other. As we get older and grow more confident with ourselves, we realize that pitting ourselves against other women is a waste of time and energy. With March being Women’s History Month, I hope we can appreciate and value ourselves and also the friendships we’ve made with other women. Don’t pay attention to those glossy magazines that say only one actress can look good in a designer dress. And forget about the “Squad goals”, which ultimately exclude others. It’s 2016 and I say it’s time we join forces with one another. That should be the ultimate goal. On that same note, we’re happy to introduce two amazing women, Toni Esteban and Katrina Bartolome. They are co-founders and writers of the blog, Under The Sweater. They were happy to speak about women’s issues, share their goals, and describe their ideal …

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. YHM: You said New York City is the fashion world that has greatly inspired you. How has it inspired/affected you and your style? JLB: Not only does the city itself have visual and emotional appeal, but the chic New Yorker who walks around its busy streets also conveys a story simply by how she is dressed. Fashion is essentially centered on culture and even if I have not been to many different fashion …

Fashion With No Limitations

The way you feel about your appearance is a big part of your confidence level when you step out for the day. Young women all around the world battle with finding their style all the time. You’re not alone. Questions like “does this make me look fat or is this me” runs through your head in the morning. We all want to keep up with the latest trends and be ourselves all at the same time. Adey Zegeye, a junior at Rutgers University with concentrations in Journalism & Media Studies and Cinema Studies, finds confidence by not having fashion boundaries and taking tips from her mother! YHM: Have you ever traveled outside of your culture and experienced a different fashion world? How did it impact you? Adey Zegeye  (AZ): I spent last semester in Paris, which definitely allowed me to fully express my fashion with no limitations. I like to wear edgy blazers, fur, and leather.
