FASHION & CULTURE: Trends In College Beauty – A Time of Bloom
By Space Coast Daily // July 6, 2018
Traditional VS. Non-Traditional Styling
The full maturity of an adult usually doesn’t hit until around their mid-30s. Think of it like this: an apple begins as a blossom, grows into its shape, then matures in that shape and increases in plumpness until it falls from the tree, and begins to decompose.
Now, the apple’s development has a great similarity to human development.
Children bear little resemblance to their parents until they’ve attained the age of around 35. Sure, they have similar features; but in maturity, a son or daughter may appear nearly a twin of their progenitor. But how they look at this age is much different than how they appear when puberty sets in.
Teenagers are gangly and awkward—and right at the zenith of that awkwardness comes college. But during college comes the bloom; the initial ripeness—the too-ripe quality of a piece of fruit on the tree that hasn’t fully grown into itself yet. Now is a time to try different styles, and be creative in terms of your expression.
There are many ways to do this, some of them more formal than others. For example, you may apply elegance to your form and use that as your stylistic starting point. Today’s elegance has a depth, beauty, and quality that goes unmatched in comparison to most of history. You can find some fine gowns, blouses, and outfits—even garments specifically designed for sororities.
Sorority formal dresses and rush recruitment dresses by Azazie are offering, according to the site: “…amazing recruitment dresses, and the styles that are perfect for formal events, too. Purchasing our chic dresses means you’ll be receiving a gown that will be in your wardrobe for years to come. From weddings to holiday partings, black tie events and more, your Azazie dress is the ultimate look for every occasion.”
In terms of non-traditional, but trending, beauty tips, there is contemporarily a trans-humanist putsch which is bringing many different elements together. Ear-piercings, tattoos, and strange hairstyles are to a degree part of this movement. Tattoos like bar-codes can send a video to a phone. You can tattoo a line of music that a smartphone can play. Many interesting solutions like this are now available.
Beyond tattoos, creative hairstyles, and piercings, a new trend in this direction involves bodily augmentation. This is more traditionally known as plastic surgery. Many use it to beautify themselves, diminishing features they don’t prefer, and encouraging those they do. Some augmentations may be entirely original, depending on what you’re into.

Dressing For Comfort
Community college doesn’t get the reputation ivy-league schools do, but they still turn out some fine students who may even be better-equipped for life than a student who depends more on contacts than skill for forward egress. Perhaps this is one reason community colleges are increasing in popularity. Well, dressing for comfort has a similar quality to this.
A final trend in college beauty involves simple comfort and choosing outfits which bring out your natural beauty while making it easy for you to get through the day. Many college students today save the brash and surprising arrangements for parties, dances, and the like; wearing basic, comfortable clothes for their day-to-day education.
Considering The Bigger Picture
Ultimately, what family of styling best fits your particular interests is up to you. But be advised: it will change. Sure, it may not change exceptionally over the years; but you don’t see a lot of bell-bottoms anymore. Platform shoes still sneak into styling on occasion, but for the most part, seventies trends no longer exist.
The same is true for nineties trends, and the trends you epitomize right now. So whatever you do, keep in mind: ten to twenty years from now, you’ll likely be doing something different.
