A new season means new trends, guys, and this season is no exception. We all know Europe is the inception point of fashion, and by the time we finally hop on the hype train that they start up, the chic #menswear dudes are already on to the next big thing.Thankfully, I’ve tried to stay on top of these trends so that you don’t have to and so that you can straggle onto the bandwagon quickly. The global fashion weeks are over for SS14, so let’s take a trip down memory lane and recap a few of the most popular trends for this upcoming season.

If you think flowers are just for girls, time to think again. The loudest and most conspicuous trend of Spring/Summer '14 is definitely the floral print

Designers have been putting flowers on everything from blazers to hats and, honestly, they’re killing it. The pattern lends a blast of color and adds a nice pop to any fit.

I recommend a slim fitting short sleeve button up smothered in floral, matched with some light khaki chino shorts and some sleek white sneaks. Go check out Gitman Bros. Vintage’s new collection ASAP.

For the next big trend, we continue the theme of loud colors. Brightly colored sneakers and trainers have exploded this season and have shown up on perfectly pedicured feet all over the menswear world.

Industry giants like Nike and Adidas have dropped some crazy dope offerings, like the new Nike Flyknit Frees or the new Adidas Stan Smith suede collection. But if you want a bit more exclusivity, check out Common Projects, Valentino or Raf Simons.

Rock these for a relaxed look this summer, preferably with a quieter fit. Let the shoes do the talking.

The third trend popping up in the spotlight is the resurgence of the long top coat. Thankfully, Europeans have realized we don’t all live along the Mediterranean. Men’s fashion has embraced the classic Mackintosh coat silhouette this season and lauds the crispy jacket that keeps you dry while you’re looking killer.

Wear one as an overcoat on top of your suit as you’re headed over to that summer internship interview in the drizzle. And check out the offerings from Dries Van Noten, Arc’teryx Veilance and, of course, Mackintosh.

So, if you want to look like you’ve been dressed by the internet this season, check these trends out and show that you’re a unique individual by dressing like the thousands of other dudes trying to prove the same thing. I know I’ll be rocking all three of these trends this season.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
