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.

Brighten your wardrobe with bold colors this summer

This season, models marched down runways blinding onlookers. The pages of May's In Style magazine look more like colors found in a candy shop, and even Forever 21's latest frocks are inspired by Vitamin C. It's official, girls, summer is here, and as Posh Spice might say: Bold colors are going to be major.

Summer trends to avoid

Trends are the ebb and flow of the fashion pool. They arrive in huge, abrupt waves and wash out just as quickly. Most are sported by the likes of stylish celebrities, and some are created right here on campus.
