Disturbing Fashion Trend Makes Comeback

What do Teddy Roosevelt, Pee Wee Herman, and Donald Duck all have in common? You guessed it: terrible fashion sense. I’m speaking specifically of their decision to wear bowties. Now, I’ll give some of the older bowtie enthusiasts a free pass, as it seems wearing one was sort of the cool thing to do back in the day. Much like James Dean and the like gave way to an entire generation of wheezing smokers with future emphysema, Frank Sinatra and Winston Churchill gave a certain status to the bowtie.
Cliq (End Of!) Summer Fashion Picks

With summer in full swing, for some of us, our wardrobes haven’t quite followed suit. Especially in states where summer kind of sneaks up and stakes its claim in the form of unpredictable 100 degree temps, you may not have worked out your beach, lake, or pool wear. No worries though, as COLLEGE CLIQ is never one to let an opportunity (like gratuitous buying) pass us by! Below are our three brands to make summer a lot easier, plus a few tips to spruce up your style sans spending a fortune.
For the ladies, Bristol 6 may be the best invention yet. Because we have well, specialty parts and need to keep them under wraps, Nippies and Nippies Naturals keep you oops! free. Ideal for all those barely-there summertime tops. They also come in all sorts of different colors and styles, great if you have a personal preference or plan on showing off your goods later on in the night. The most popular is the basic line; these come in black and nude and are lace or smooth. They have great coverage and are discrete but others come in lots of fun colors and patters and designs. Stars, hearts, X's, butterflies, you name it. Some of my favorite prints include zebra, black sequin, stripes, and lips. (There's even a Nippies bridal collection!) The Nippies Naturals are also reusable and come with a cute compact case. These give you a little boost in the bust and are thicker than regular styles. The hottest thing this summer, even Rhianna was recently seen wearing the silver star ones! Available online, Nippies are the best accessory around, except, well, what you got goin’ on upstairs already. www.bristol6.com
Hurley is certainly no stranger to summer wear, and this season should be no exception. I especially like their no-nonsense, straight up sexy LBB (or Little Black Bikini). Hurley and Bar Raefeli have teamed up to create this simple but stylish little number, retailing for $120 and found both at Hurley.com as well as specialty boutiques like Intuition and Lisa Kline. To cover them up I’m definitely very fond of their lowrider shorts in brilliant yellow and in a pleasing plaid. But don’t feel left out men folk, as always Hurley’s got you too. For getting wet they have an especially colorful array of board shorts, and you can find some for a mere $39.99 on up. Snag a beanie or cap and you’re ready to roll out!

-Utilize the Goodwill and other thrift shops for killer deals on stuff like tees and tanks.
