Although it may take some guts to wear unusual clothing to school, junior Claire Sullivan and many other fashion-forward students do not shy away from the most unusual of fabrics, even metallic, and continue to incorporate the strange materials and colors into their own personal styles.

Two-words that describe the 1980s? Mom jeans. The classic 80's style hinted at a comeback during 2017, and has entered 2018 as one of the most popular trends. Putting its own spin on the fashionable piece, the mom jeans now incorporate the rips that have flooded the jean industry throughout the year as well as cuffed up bottoms. The jeans lay out a wide, curvy waist which slightly slims down with length and was popular throughout the 80's as the casual style.
As a high-schooler there is not much motivation to wear anything else but sweats when rolling out of bed at 6:30 in the morning. However, mom jeans offer a comfortable alternative to annoyingly-tight jeggings or skinny jeans while still keeping things stylish.
Strutting in style does not have to break the bank either, juniors Claire Sullivan and Lily Ahmed have found the jeans for a generous price at nearby thrift stores like Savers.
Velvet, a popular 90’s trend, has made its’ mark on 2018. The unique fabric is perfect to add flare to any style, and it has raided all types of clothing; headbands, scrunchies, t-shirts, shoes, and sweatshirts. The Fenty Creepers have incorporated this fabric into their sleek shoes, and various clothing companies have created velvet pieces to sell in their stores.
