After four years of college and many hours in the studio, University of Minnesota apparel design seniors will unveil their senior projects Saturday.

Unlike graduating seniors who write a paper or complete a research project, the apparel design students create a collection to be shown at the annual senior fashion show.

For the first time, the Align apparel design fashion show will showcase designs from 20 graduating seniors. Notable work from sophomores and juniors will also be shown.

We’ve been bombarded with anti-oil messages since birth. Though the idea of slathering oil all over your face sounds terrifying, I’m here to tell you that face oils can be your skin’s best friend.

When it comes to face oils, you have to see it to believe it. Over winter break, I tested a number of products and can now safely call myself an oil enthusiast. Are you ready to take the risk?

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.

Luckily, I have a synthesized list of the coolest things for men to wear in 2014. Even Midwesterners can dress like they belong in the front row between Kanye and Victor Cruz.

 

Trend #1: Shearling

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.

Like most other stores, Papyrus — known for its offerings of greeting cards, gift wrap and other paper products — has a holiday window display with a distinct twist. It features dresses made out of cards, ribbon and wrapping paper, all designed by Christopher Straub.

It’s a common phenomenon. You go out with the intention of “taking it easy,” and next thing you know, you’ve had three vodka tonics, two tequila shots and a wine bong and are bragging about how you invented the high five. Sound familiar?

At some point in fashion’s history, rules developed that dictate what we can and cannot wear. Don’t wear white after Labor Day! Horizontal stripes make you look fat! Shoes and belts must match! Let’s face it: Rules — especially fashion rules — are meant to be broken.

Let’s face it: Americans aren’t known for having great style. We live in one of the most powerful countries in the world, yet the average citizen struggles to properly dress themselves in the morning.

Take some tips from Europeans to look fashionable before you study abroad. Even if you never plan on leaving the country, I highly suggest a style audit. The world will thank you.

 

Wear nice shoes. And no, your sneakers are not nice.

Michael “MJ” Johnson’s imperial partial beard protrudes from his face like two dark-brown, upside-down walrus tusks. The thick, coarse hair starts at his jowls and connects to his mustache before curving up near his eyes.

In early November, his elaborate facial ’do won second place in the Imperial Partial Beard category at the World Beard and Moustache Championships in Germany.
