With Fashion Week in Paris, one of the top fashion capitals in the world, coming to an end this week, there were distinct highlights and lowlights.

The global fall fashion week showcased bold new fashion statements for the 2018 winter and spring seasons.

From cheetah print to platform crocs, here are the top eight unique looks we saw off and on the runway.

1. Animal Print

Fashion week in Paris was quite animalistic this fall. With fashion veterans like Jane Fonda and streetwalkers wearing the mock patterns, PFW proved that this versatile pattern can be worn both on and off the runway.



Final consensus: Best list

2. Thigh-High Boots

Deep breaths… the thigh-high boot trend is here to stay. According to modern fashion industry icons such as models like Romee Strijd and Emily Ratajkowski, sporting thigh-high boots in one of the fashion capitals of the world is more than acceptable. They also showed that experimenting with color, such as bright red, is not an issue.



Final consensus: Best list

3. Plastic Wrapped Shoes

Top couture brands like Chanel and celebrities like Naomi Campbell modeled these interesting shoes. From boots to heels, anything can be wrapped in plastic. This is definitely one of the more bizarre trends seen at the fall PFW.


Final consensus: Worst List

4. The Newsboy Hat

Fashion icons like Karlie Kloss and Hailey Baldwin sported the newsboy hat trend this PFW. Fall Paris Fashion Week showed the reality of the fashion zeitgeist, recycling older trends and creating a modern spin on them.


Final consensus: Best list

5. Platform Crocs

Why buy crocs when you can buy platform crocs? Fashion label Balenciaga sent their models down the runway wearing these shoes, a unique spin on the revolutionary rubber-like shoe.

Final consensus: Worst list

6. Pink, Pink, & Pink

Pastels, roses, magentas, corals. Name the shade of pink, PFW 2017 had it. This makes the good list. Both street-walkers and runway-walkers showed that pink will always be a brilliant choice. Paris Fashion Week goers were looking pretty in pink this fall.


Final consensus: Best list

7. Elf Shoes

I was always jealous of the shoe game that my family's Elf on the Shelf had. This is one of the more questionable looks seen during the fall PFW. This controversial trend at PFW 2017 takes a unique perspective on the classic sneaker. Will these make your x-mas list this year?


Final consensus: Worst list

8. Polka Dots

This flattering pattern was prevalent on the streets of Paris. The cute and classic polka dot can also be worn with mismatched patterns for an edgier look.


Final consensus: Best list

I would like to add that fashion is undeniably an essential piece of our culture. Fashion is historical, culturally/self-expressive, and brings cultures from all over the world together.

With the political storm that has been sweeping our nation recently, events like fall fashion week can act as a form of entertainment in a time of sorrow and distress.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
