It's hard to look good and feel good at the same time. Here are some tricks making sweatpants instantly look fashionable, leaving you comfortably stylish.
It is the season to carve pumpkins, drink pumpkin spice lattes, bake pumpkin bread and unleash the laziest version of...
You might not like what I've got to say. This week, we're talking about "being yourself" in a relationship. As in your real self. As in, the one who doesn't roll out of bed looking perfect, the one who loves watching 'My Strange Addiction', yes, even the one who will happily finish an entire pizza all by herself.
This week my college goes back to school. I'm not going back. Since graduating, I've been wondering when it will hit me that I'm not in college anymore.
Because our first go at deciphering the (ugly) language of sweatpants created such a stir, we’ve decided to give our readers what they want: a rebuttal argument in defense of our beloved, timeless sweatpants. Clap your hands say yeah!
This is one of the things that I love about fashion. Designers can be "inspired" by something, and then channel it in a way that is on an entirely different planet than the original inspiration. For example, just because the Victorian-era inspired designers this season, doesn't mean girls are rocking the insane junk-in-yo-trunk bustle. So instead of the clothes you'd sweat-it-out at the gym in, there are chic, sporty clothes for you instead.
I am not a leisure wear person. I only wear hoodies out in public when running errands or at the curling rink. I do dress for comfort when I'm at home, but people rarely see me like this. Want proof? A couple of weeks ago a friend came to my building to grab something and her boyfriend told me he had never seen me dressed casually before (I was wearing a hoodie and jeans). After receiving my UNCL hoodie, this might change.

I spent all my cold winter nights dreaming of beaches and sunshine and getting a tan at the end of summer. Then summer came and I was happy (minus a few sunburns and one month-long humidity frizzfest. Then summer came even harder -- 95 degrees harder -- and I was ready for fall. I want to accessorize with scarves and see my college friends and order pumpkin spice lattes. While "end of summer" might sound depressing if you’re forty with a real job, fall for the College Candy girl is fabulous.
I’m elated to announce that today, August 10th, is National Lazy Day. Seriously, this is a recognized day of do-nothing. Go out and get batteries for your remote, set up a cooler right next to the sofa, find the comfiest clothes possible - you’re going to be doing a minimal amount of moving. In honor of the only holiday better than Christmas, I bring you the ultimate Lazy Day schedule:
Seriously though, Victoria's Secret is so amazing for summer, especially the PINK line. All of the bright colors, soft breathable fabric, and summer-licious patterns. There's just something about the store. I'm going to go ahead and blame the countless dollars I spend there on all of the fumes from Love Spell they spritz in the beauty section...
I know on this website time and again we talk about how we should put in a little more effort for class, not roll out of bed in baggy sweats and at least put on jeans. But we all know that in the winter months even jeans seem like a lot of effort. Not to mention the uncomfortable factor of your jeans digging into you after weeks of late night pizza fests.
One of the biggest motivations for us college girls to get to the gym every day is the thought of all the hot guys that will be there. Yeah, we go there to burn off last night's margaritas and nachos, but doing all that burning is so much better while ogling delicious, muscle-y coeds lifting weights, the sweat dripping off of their glistening brows.
I was sitting on the bike at the gym yesterday, sweating out my stress to some Drake, when a cute boy sits on the bike next to me. I was so excited and in luuuurve, but instead of focusing on engaging in witty banter and knocking the socks off this kid, I was wondering if my eye makeup from the day had made its way down my face yet, and if sweat could ever be remotely flattering.
When it comes to fashion, us college girls have standards to uphold. In the fall we must waltz into lecture in a pair of killer leather boots and a blazer. When winter hits, it’s our chance to show off all of our scarves and that cute button down pea coat. Then we enter spring, when mom ships us all of our jean skirts, sundresses and cute tanks.
