Some fashions are born great; some have greatness thrust upon them. Most fashion, by definition, is pretty average. There is yet more that, like anybody who’s ever taken joy in anonymously insulting someone over the internet, are just insufferable. Here at Byline we’re dedicated to bringing you only the crème de la crème of style this Autumn – a season which is shaping up to be one of the most memorable of the 2010s.
Whether the recent re-emergence of this trend has gone over your head, or it’s made you wish someone would put a cap on your spending, the baseball cap is back and bigger than ever. After making headway on Instagram, baseball caps have reached their peak after years of sitting on the sidelines of fashion. These simple pieces have scored a hat-trick, previously experiencing a field day in the 1990s and early 2000s. Head down to your nearest clothes shop and pick up this wardrobe basic today.
The modern student shows, yet again, that we have far too many people to see and places to go to waste time on an insensible shoe. What they will not do, unfortunately, is help you run from your problems.
When will this trend die, already? We waved goodbye to kale a long time ago, people: we learned from our mistakes. Why are we insisting on keeping this one alive? People are wearing it on their faces, they’re eating it in salads – they could be using it as soap for all we know, since it’s “good fat.” The avocado is a small, green disappointment that has no place outside of the guacamole industry. And don’t get us started on that wheat intolerance nonsense.
The sign of the Zodiac that everyone’s talking about is finally here! If you were born between the 30th of November and the 18th of December, congratulations – you may now be the holder of a brand-spanking-new star sign, and will be forced to adopt some, if not all, of the following traits: a disregard for authority; rebelliousness; secretiveness; and curiosity. Don’t argue with us, man, argue with NASA. It could be worse – you could be a Libra.
Is there a universal ‘bad’? Is my negative your positive? Is the glass half-full, or is this analogy a logical fallacy designed to make quote-unquote pessimists reconsider their outlook on life and in so doing cease to criticise the established system? Either way, moral relativism is the way forward this season! Take a walk in someone else’s shoes and finally understand that world peace is an impossibility due to our individualised perceptions of what is right and what is wrong.
