Not only do fashion brands have cute companies now, but they also have shareable content, and in my book that's pretty great.
With the internet came online shopping. Nowadays some stores have gotten so in to the online, that they are there exclusively. That's right, you can't buy it in stores because they don't have one! It's pretty revolutionary if you ask me, considering someday we will do everything on the internet...and have robots...and flying cars -- I digress.
Tweed might make you think of a stereotypical professor - the old man (who doesn't know how to use email) with elbow patches on the tweed blazer he wears every single day. Well throw this image out the window, because tweed is a gorgeous fabric that should be in every college girl's wardrobe.
Every morning when I get off the subway to go to school, I have to walk right past Forever 21. And it's torture. School been in session for three weeks now, and there has been this super hot navy lace dress (I think it’s a dress, but you never know with that store...) every time I walk by. Seeing as I don’t REALLY need another dress (remember how I bought 3 in the spring?) I’ve been trying really hard not to go in and buy it in all its gorgeous, lacy glory.
Leather is one of the biggest fabrics for fall 2010. It is also one of the easiest to embrace because EVERYTHING can be made in leather: bags, shoes, leggings, shorts, jackets, skirts...the list goes on. And I love it all. Leather is sexy. It's edgy. And it makes everything look cool.
If you haven’t caught on by now, it’s official: I’m smitten with all things military-inspired. Despite the short summer season,...

You've got your mattress cover, your mini-fridge, your XL twin sheets, and lots of garbage bags, but there is a whole category of dorm room essentials you are skipping out on. DORMWEAR. Because, if you're like me, no matter how hard you try and fight the stereotypical college student walking round in pajamas and sweats thang, there are times you will break down
One mom approved must-have for both fall and college is a chic fall jacket. The perfect fall jacket is neutral, goes with all your favorite clothes and fits just right. Not to mention, it "keeps you warm on those walks to class. You don't want to catch a cold!" (Thanks, ma.)
Plaid is one of the 10 Modern Pieces Every Girl Should Own and the plaid shirt has become a uniform for both male and female college students. It's easy to wear with jeans, super comfy, and looks good even when it's been balled up on your floor and you only have 10 minutes to make it to class.
What's the one thing you should have in your closet before moving to school? It's definitely not a pair of sweats or an oversized tee. But, if you do it right, this very special wardrobe essential can feel just as good.
If you've grown a bit sea sick from all the nautical-inspired clothes you've been sporting this summer, why not return to dry land and go more utilitarian with the military-inspired pieces dominating stores? These pieces have a harder look, with cargo pockets, neutral colors and grommet detailing.
