The arrival of the Golden Globes marks the beginning of a long anticipated awards season. Red carpets are unrolled and, in time, decorated with shimmering gowns and sharp suits, coveted even by the stars themselves.

Boys fashion in Ames High is a joke. Majority of the female students of Ames High will most likely to agree with the previous statement. Sam Egberth, a junior and one of the best dresser of Ames High, describes how people are like in PE clothes all day long. It is almost as if  they don’t care about...

Listen up Ames High, spring is barreling in faster than snow is piling up on the East Coast and it has new trends in tow. Particularly one little trend, and no, I’m not talking about florals, has made its way into the spring charts. All my Devil Wears Prada fans would understand. This spring is all...

Once again, it’s fur season. Time to drag out all the fur hats, coats, scarves, and earmuffs to keep from freezing our arses off here in Iowa. Wearing fur can be a tricky business. You don’t want to overdo it with too much fur, like a full on rabbit trench coat. PEETA might come knocking on your door with...

From the first day we enter the hallowed gates of this prestigious institution, we learn the one goal of high school: to become seniors, the bearded, tall, glorious creatures who glide through the halls. For most, this takes four years. However, you can still emulate the favorite class of Ames High in...

I used to adore Taylor Swift's vintage country style that she was always known for - but this is so much better. Taylor's been stepping out in drool-worthy outfits ever since she moved to New York.

Get ready to get wild this October, because leopard print is in for autumn. I used to think leopard print could look gaudy and cheap, but that depends on how you choose to wear it. Por ejemplo, wearing bold leopard print jeggings is going way too far with this trend. Just don’t do it. Trust me, you...

The AHS baseball team was ahead of the trend when they donned their Camo is Committed shirts this past spring. This fall, camouflage print is all the rage. I’m not talking leaves and sticks hunting camo, I’m talking hardcore army print. A trendy camo print can be displayed with a pair of jeans, a cute m...
