One of the best things about summer is the versatility of the fashion you can wear, especially since you don’t need to worry about the cold. And it’s not just about swimwear either. You can go from work chic to beach bum pretty easily during the warmer months. Here are some of the best summer fashion trends you can follow:

Fashion, for some, is like medicine. It supports their well-being and keeps them going through times when they’re feeling not-so-hot. Also, it can be addictive in some cases. It’s crazy to stop and think of all the eight billion people in the world and how every single person is devoted to some style, specialized to their person. Fashion and style are ever changing, and it is one industry that...

Chance the Rapper is making a name for himself in the music industry, but his style is also something to pay attention to. His major statement pieces from denim jackets, black jeans, baseball caps, and his love of overalls, are simple and can be worn during any occasion. If you're like me, you've recently been to one of Chance's concerts and have been inspired by his fashion choices.

The Met Gala has been given many names, all relating back to one commonality: the title of being the party of the year. The difference between the Gala and other award shows or high profile events is the simultaneous mystery and attention it receives. While the red carpet is live-streamed, with eyeballs across the world pinned on some of fashion’s biggest names, what goes on inside the Met i...

Head over to Instagram on any given Thursday and you will most likely see a plethora of “throwback Thursday” posts. These posts can range from old photos lost in a crowded camera roll, to baby photos, to the more recent trend of the “glo-up.”

The term “glo-up” is used to show how a person has successfully “grown up,” and has gotten better looking, improved their makeup skills, fashion, etc. It is us...

There’s no better feeling than owning vintage clothing. It’s been lived in and worn in a completely different era. Someone decided to express themselves through that piece of clothing and there’s no other piece like it. It’s all funky, exciting, and colorful. It’s also great knowing there is no unethical business work going on behind closed do...

Asian skincare has been all the rage over the past few years. The focus on skincare rather than makeup guarantees a glowing, clear complexion which does not require much coverage or cover-up. During my recent trip to San Francisco, I stopped by “The Face Shop,” the infamous Asian skincare and beauty spot hidden in a Japantown strip mall. What I found were products that have made my skin not only clear, but smooth, glowing, and...

Some people really get into fashion and thrive off of finding the coolest clothes on the market, but I’ve found that picking what to wear in the morning is more of a hassle than anything for most guys. I mean, it’s so confusing: 10 years ago puka shells were cool, but now I’m pretty sure if you wear anything Supreme that’s how you know you’re at the top of the fashion game. Trends are exhausting and trying to keep up is a guar...

An oversized camo jacket is a classic statement piece and the perfect way to channel your inner Cadet Kelly (or in my case, Blake Anderson). I just recently picked one of my own up from Urban Jungle in Brooklyn (they have an entire camo section, I’d highly recommend going there, or any thrift shop for that matter) and it’s been a true love affair ever since, to be honest.

Nineteen is an awkward age for fashion. Am I supposed to look like I’m on spring break or do I suit up like I’m on my way to a 9-5? You have your classic blazers and button-ups versus crop tops and ripped jeans. Where is the line drawn between dressing business-casual and looking like you’re a 40-year-old business professional?

What is ‘business-casual’ anyway?
