As millennials, we're constantly searching for new trends. Styles change, but what hasn't changed much is the college wardrobe—that is, wearing T-shirts pretty much daily. After learning about North by South, a T-shirt company founded by an alumni of Georgetown University and Sigma Phi Epsilon, I realized that I've found the next big thing.

North by South's shirts combine the formality of a men's tie with the comfort of a T-shirt, making it an easy addition to anyone's closet. Here are just a few reasons why NxS is the best new college brand, but be sure to check out Northbysouthapparel.com or like their Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram pages for more information about the products and upcoming sales.

1. It updates the most popular item in a college student's closet—the T-shirt.

College students, both men and women alike, enjoy wearing T-shirts to class. It's by far the easiest choice when you're rolling out of bed 20 minutes before class starts.

2. The pockets are made from men's neckties.

Because of the difference in texture, the pockets look (and feel) really cool in person, not to mention the patterns and designs draw people's attention without being too flashy. Plus, for ladies, it's a cute way to rock a men's wardrobe staple.

3. NxS was started by a college student.

We all dream of becoming great people after graduation, right? Well, the founder of NxS, Matt Aronson, started the company while he was still an undergrad, proving that good ideas don't have to wait until you have your degree.

4. They partner with the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

What's better than a company that loves to give back? NxS supports the Make-a-Wish Foundation of Central and Western North Carolina, and will be donating a portion of their 2016 sales to the organization in order to help children with life-threatening illnesses.

5. The pockets come in your favorite school, city, or team's colors.

NxS allows you to show your school or team pride in a unique way. With names like "The Tallahassee" or "The ATL," it's easy to identify your college or hometown. Plus, the pockets pair well with almost any of the shirt colors.

6. There are different fits for women and men.

As much as sorority women love their big T-shirts, sometimes, it's nice to have the option to wear a shirt that isn't, well, huge. NxS gives you the option to choose from a men's or a women's collection, which changes the cut of the shirt while still giving you the same patterns and colors to choose from.

7. They pair well with almost anything.

The best thing about these shirts is that they complement pretty much anything you're wearing, whether it's sweatpants, jeans, khakis, or leggings. Because NxS shirts can be dressed up or down, they're a great addition to anyone's closet, whether you're trying to look preppy or casual.

8. They're customizable and unique.

With 25 different pocket patterns and five shirt colors to choose from, the combinations are endless. You can buy multiple shirts while still getting a completely different look from every single one. Plus, these shirts are unique, and you'll be setting the trend for your classmates.

9. They allow you to dress up while dressing down.

Being comfortable doesn't have to mean looking sloppy! North by South enhances the classic T-shirt with a tie pocket, which can make even the most casual outfit look more professional. Plus, you can wear them to class, while lounging around the house, or for your weekend adventures.

10. The brand focuses on positivity and individuality.

On social media, NxS's "Tuesday Tips" feature quotes to inspire followers. The much needed motivation, especially during those stressful times during the semester, emphasize the idea that anything is possible (like starting your own company while still in college). Knowing that North by South seeks to put positive vibes into the world makes me feel even better about wearing this brand.

8 Reasons Why My Dad Is the Most Important Man In My Life

Forever my number one guy.

Growing up, there's been one consistent man I can always count on, my father. In any aspect of my life, my dad has always been there, showing me unconditional love and respect every day. No matter what, I know that my dad will always be the most important man in my life for many reasons.

1. He has always been there.

Literally. From the day I was born until today, I have never not been able to count on my dad to be there for me, uplift me and be the best dad he can be.

2. He learned to adapt and suffer through girly trends to make me happy.

I'm sure when my dad was younger and pictured his future, he didn't think about the Barbie pretend pageants, dressing up as a princess, perfecting my pigtails and enduring other countless girly events. My dad never turned me down when I wanted to play a game, no matter what and was always willing to help me pick out cute outfits and do my hair before preschool.

3. He sends the cutest texts.

Random text messages since I have gotten my own cell phone have always come my way from my dad. Those randoms "I love you so much" and "I am so proud of you" never fail to make me smile, and I can always count on my dad for an adorable text message when I'm feeling down.

4. He taught me how to be brave.

When I needed to learn how to swim, he threw me in the pool. When I needed to learn how to ride a bike, he went alongside me and made sure I didn't fall too badly. When I needed to learn how to drive, he was there next to me, making sure I didn't crash.

5. He encourages me to best the best I can be.

My dad sees the best in me, no matter how much I fail. He's always there to support me and turn my failures into successes. He can sit on the phone with me for hours, talking future career stuff and listening to me lay out my future plans and goals. He wants the absolute best for me, and no is never an option, he is always willing to do whatever it takes to get me where I need to be.

6. He gets sentimental way too often, but it's cute.

Whether you're sitting down at the kitchen table, reminiscing about your childhood, or that one song comes on that your dad insists you will dance to together on your wedding day, your dad's emotions often come out in the cutest possible way, forever reminding you how loved you are.


7. He supports you, emotionally and financially.

Need to vent about a guy in your life that isn't treating you well? My dad is there. Need some extra cash to help fund spring break? He's there for that, too.

8. He shows me how I should be treated.

Yes, my dad treats me like a princess, and I don't expect every guy I meet to wait on me hand and foot, but I do expect respect, and that's exactly what my dad showed I deserve. From the way he loves, admires, and respects me, he shows me that there are guys out there who will one day come along and treat me like that. My dad always advises me to not put up with less than I deserve and assures me that the right guy will come along one day.

For these reasons and more, my dad will forever be my No. 1 man. I love you!

To The High School Graduating Seniors

I know you're ready, but be ready.

Seniors,

I am not going to say anything about senioritis because I was ready to get out of there and I'm sure you are too; however, in your last months living at home you should take advantage of the luxuries you will not have in a college dorm. The part of college seen in movies is great, the rest of it is incredibly inconvenient. It is better to come to terms with this While you still have plenty of time to prepare and enjoy yourself.

Perhaps one of the most annoying examples is the shower. Enjoy your hot, barefoot showers now because soon enough you will have no water pressure and a drain clogged with other people's hair. Enjoy touching your feet to the floor in the shower and the bathroom because though it seems weird, it's a small thing taken away from you in college when you have to wear shoes everywhere.

Enjoy your last summer with your friends. After this summer, any free time you take is a sacrifice. For example, if you want to go home for the summer after your freshman year and be with your friends, you have to sacrifice an internship. If you sacrifice an internship, you risk falling behind on your resume, and so on. I'm not saying you can't do that, but it is not an easy choice anymore.

Get organized. If you're like me you probably got good grades in high school by relying on your own mind. You think I can remember what I have to do for tomorrow. In college, it is much more difficult to live by memory. There are classes that only meet once or twice a week and meeting and appointments in between that are impossible to mentally keep straight. If you do not yet have an organizational system that works for you, get one.

I do not mean to sound pessimistic about school. College is great and you will meet a lot of people and make a lot of memories that will stick with you for most of your life. I'm just saying be ready.
