After months of staring at the same bulky sweaters filling your closet, it might be time to make some space for new clothes.

Because most college students don’t have the money to simply replace their wardrobe with new items, they’re forced to try to sell their old clothes.

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. We both commented on three men’s trends and three women’s trends. Let the rivalry ensue.

 

Men’s trend: Polka Dots

It’s that time of year when underclassmen are frantically trying to find a summer internship and graduating seniors are frantically trying to avoid homelessness.

It’s stressful enough worrying about what you’re going to say in a job interview, let alone what you’re going to wear. But don’t worry; the fashionista is here to help.

First, you should determine the company culture of your prospective employer. Is it business formal, business casual or just casual?

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.
