Sun's-Out Style Guides for a Summer in the Sunshine State

Whether you're hitting the beach to relax or hitting the town, at some point before you go, you'll be taking a look at yourself in the mirror and wondering what to wear. Regardless of the season, wonder no more—this style guide for the top trends to embrace while you're in the Sunshine State can help you out.

Of course, clothes aren't the only element of your aesthetic that you'll want to consider. Daily hygiene is a must, including what scents you spray on you and how confidently you meet the day. Go to the hairdresser or barber and schedule an appointment at the dentist; Boca Raton, Naples, and Orlando are all great places to show off your style and vibe.

Neon accessories

From bags and footwear to sunglasses and jewelry, this summer, brighter is better. Wearing garments in more neutral shades and incorporating a few vibrant pieces into the mix will help energize your outfit. Try to keep the accent pieces similar or in the same color family.


Nothing says "Sunshine State" like this summer's fashion trend: Embracing significant amounts of yellow. This bright and sunny style may feel challenging to pull off, but virtually everyone can wear yellow if you wear it right. For the ladies, sleek skirts, yellow accessories, or yellow stripes are easier ways to wear the trend. Guys should stick to yellows as secondary outfit colors or accessories.


Florals are back and bigger than ever. Large-scale bloom prints, bright and punchy hues, and bolder palettes boost even passerbyers' moods. The go-to print for the summer season, try floral patterns on dresses, blouses, skirts, bathing suits, ties, crew necks, shoes, and any other way you care to feel daring.


This classic style turned high-fashion favorite, the v-neck has a variety of advantages over a traditional crew neck shirt. Basic v-neck shirts are around to stay, offering sensual skin exposure and accentuating your frame regardless of your gender.

Bare legs and arms

Shorts sitting just above the knee are not a new style for men, but they are going even shorter this year. Shop shorts that are both functional and flattering, stopping at about mid-thigh. Shorter inseams are sporty, practical, and athletic. And for your upper body, celebrities and icons are rocking the sleeveless look more than ever, which is both comfortable and fashionable for Florida weather.


Summer stripes, checks, tie-dye, and other prints will be a massive part of this summer's fashion. Prints are a fun way to elevate your look and make you stand out from the crowd. Strut your stuff while embracing these trendy and stylish colors and patterns.

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.

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.
