The fashion trends for a certain season are usually decided upon by designers a few months in advance. As the summer season reaches its final stretch, the fall fashion trends have already been decided. Here is a glimpse on what is “in” for fall 2017!

1. Red

Red is going to be the “it” color for this fall! And not just any red, but a power red! This red is bright, bold, and meant to be a statement piece for every and any outfit!

2. Vintage Furs

This past fall and winter it was all about statement fur, this season we are going back to the past (and not just with this trend)!

3. Western Styles

This season is going to be full of cowboy-inspired looks! In fact, Raf Simons reimagines the old-timey trend for his debut collection for Calvin Klein!

4. Plaid

Everyone loves plaid and a plaid shirt is a go to accessory for many people, but for this season plaid is a statement! And we aren’t talking about 90’s grunge plaid, we are talking about the bright and fun plaid from the 70’s!

5. Deconstructed Everything

This style is one of the hardest styles to pull off, but if you have the confidence for it then you can wear it like a pro! For those who don’t know, deconstructed pieces are ones that have been taken apart, are unfinished, and almost grunge.

6. Wide Oversized Belts

Belts are more than practical; they are fashionable too! This upcoming season be prepared to see wide belts made for almost every style!

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it

Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.

I feel as people, we either really like people that share the same name as us or we completely hate them. But when you find somebody who you like and has the same name as you, what happens? You become best friends. And some pretty unique things come with sharing the same name as your best friend. So here are 12 things that happen when your best friend is also your name twin.

1. When you talk about them, people assume that you're talking in third person.

Listen if I was talking about myself I wouldn't use my name.

2. You have to use middle and last names in certain situations.

In band, cheerleading, school, work and around our families, we've been Sarah S, Sarah W, Sarah Maria..and so on.

3. You fight over who gets to be "Sarah 1" and "Sarah 2".

I'm slightly older so I feel like I'm the alpha and get the Sarah 1 privilege.

4. You get referred to as the "Sarahs."

Or whatever name you have.

5. You get to caption your pictures as "Sarah Squared."

Basic but necessary.

6. Their parents call you "their other daughter Sarah."

or their other son and whatever your name is lol.

7. People ask you if your only friends with people who have the same name as you.

No, but it's a bonus lol.

8. You get to confuse people when you introduce yourself.

The looks we've gotten when we say that we're both Sarah are great.

9. But you make it easier for other people to remember names.

I mean come on, there's only one name to remember.

10. They feel the struggle when somebody spells your name wrong.

Sarah with the h= the good Sarah, and Sarah without the h= the bad Sarah

11. You both look and respond when somebody says your name.

Uhhh we're going to need yo to be more specific.

12. You have a name twin, and one that you actually like.
