Fashion Trends Inspired By "Friends"

Over a decade ago the greatest TV show ever created came to an end, that show being none other than the iconic “Friends”. If you’re anything like me you’ve probably seen all ten seasons multiple times and can’t help but tear up at the series finale every single time. You’ve tried using Joey’s famous pickup line, craved Monica’s lasagna, memorized the lyrics to “Smelly Cat,” identified with Chandler’s social awkwardness, patiently waited for your lobster to come back to you like Ross and lusted for a closet like Rachel’s. You’ve gotten so emotionally attached to the show that you feel as if you’re the seventh friend, which made saying goodbye even harder (luckily we can binge watch on Netflix).

Lucky for all of us “Friends” fanatics, news was just released that there will be a two-hour reunion episode coming out on February 21st! A day that is going to be better than Christmas and my birthday combined! In honor of this incredible and overdue reunion, here are some modern day fashion trends inspired by the leading ladies of “Friends.”

Rachel Green:

Being a former employee for Bloomingdale’s and Ralph Lauren, Rachel Green is definitely crowned the “Friends” fashion queen. She is a style icon of the 90’s and effortlessly pulled off every outfit she ever wore. From the moment she stood up Barry at the altar, up until the day she (almost) went to Paris, Rachel Green has kept her wardrobe precisely on trend. Regardless of the fact that Rachel’s wardrobe has been unattainable to us viewers for the past decade, her classic looks have been reborn into the new generation. Thank you, Rachel Green, for the gift of the plaid and overall trends.



Monica Geller:

We all have a little Monica inside of us. Whether it be because of her insane OCD or her prior inability to say no to any kind of food, Monica is easily one of the most relatable characters on the show. But her relatability isn’t just due to her personality; it is also because of her timeless wardrobe. She kept most of her outfits simple and easy, usually jeans and a top of some sort. In spite of her simple style, Monica still frequently sported specific trends that are coming back into the market today- we’re talking about mom jeans and button-ups.

Phoebe Buffay:

Phoebe Buffay might take the first place position as my favorite character on the show. She is sarcastic, unique, hilarious and quite the musical talent. She also inspired the bohemian trend through her hippie-ish outfits and long wavy blonde hair. Although bohemian fashion is less popular today than it was a few years back, there are a few fashion trends, vests and maxi dresses, encouraged by Phoebe that are frequently seen all over the world today.

Now as I said earlier, all these styles sported by the women of "Friends" are currently coming back into trend for our generation. Although the basic trend is the same, we have modernized these styles for what is popular today. Here is a look at how these six "Friends" trends are worn on our streets today.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
