A diplomatic wardrobe

If you ask my friends, they'll be the first to tell you that I'm definitely not a politically active person. My knowledge of the presidential candidates is shallower than a kiddie pool, but with the shambles our nation is in, I thought it would behoove me to catch Friday night's debates. After all, what better way to learn about our potential future presidents than watching them civilly duke it out on national television?

Fashion on the avenue

Your first date with someone is incredibly important. It determines the outcome of the relationship. They say first impressions are everything, and hopefully your first date ends well with no walk of shame (see last week's article).

Fedora hat takes over fashion world

If you're having a bad-hair day, in need of a cover-up for the orange dye that won't wash out of your hair from last week's game or just looking to put a little Humphrey Bogart in your life, the fedora hat is coming back in style more than ever.

Students guide to interview style

Some people may think college is just a holding tank of fun before entering the real world, but it's actually much more than that. It's a time to figure out what we want to do with our lives and see where we want to plant our feet. In order to figure that out, we all have to endure the dreaded interview process.

Style in The Swamp

Don't lie. You know all summer long, the second an orange or blue article of clothing caught your eye, you were nearly required to buy it. Football season is back, ladies and gentlemen, and it's time to whip out your game day attire. Urban Meyer's whiteout didn't quite succeed â€" for more reasons than multiple see-through sundresses after the first quarter downpour â€" and at the Florida vs Hawaii game, orange and blue still reigned as the dominant colors in the Swamp. Sadly, I witnessed far too many fashion faux pas. So, to clear up some game day fashion confusion, here are some do's and don'ts.

Shape up for fall fashion, and toss the shapeless shirts

Ah, back to school. Remember the days when going back to school meant buying a whole new wardrobe? Returning for another academic year was the perfect reason to go shopping and your perfect excuse for spending money. "It's for school next year" seemed to be one of the few replies that parents actually accepted. In college, it's like no one even cares.

Experiment with daring nail polish shades this season

Week after week, you have heard me preach about bold colors for summer, and this season's nail shades are no different. Think of the colors you would use to highlight bold terms in your textbook. For those of you who like to keep the bright colors on your toes only, you are in luck, because white nail polishes are also in for summer.

Beat the summer heat with comfortable smock dresses

The times have changed, and we girls should be grateful. In 1958, women at UF were finally permitted to wear Bermuda shorts as long as they were not a disruption to class. According to a Tampa Tribune article published in April, faculty members could ban females from class if they felt their shorts were a distraction.

Summer brings new hair trends

Rihanna cut hers short. Katie Holmes and her daughter sport matching looks, and Lauren Conrad wore one in just about every episode of "The Hills" last season. You guessed it girls: I am talking about this summer's fiercest hairstyles - the pixie cut, the bi-level bob and the side French braid.
