Fashion is almighty. It’s all-powerful and divisive. Case in point: the Daily’s A&E department. After arguing about a ton of trends every week in the office, the Daily’s two most fashionable writers decided to talk out our differences.

Now, let’s all pray for spring.
Although you may not have heard about it, Men’s Fashion Week has been happening in various cities for the past month. Menswear designers showed their collections in Paris, Milan and London — only for them to be quickly forgotten with the start of haute couture week.

If you’ve visited the Mall of America recently, you’ve seen how stores transform into winter wonderlands with strings of lights, holiday decorations and festive window displays.
