One of my favorite trends that’s been going strong for the last few seasons is ombré. Ombré comes from a French word meaning shaded or shadow, and refers to a graduated color scheme where color fades from dark to light (or the other way around). We’ve seen an ombré effect applied to hair, nail polish and fashion. There are tons of great ombré pieces in stores right now and at every price — here are a few that are just $20 or less– head to CollegeCandy.com to check out the rest!

When it’s hot and sticky out, no one wants to wear more than the bare minimum when it comes to clothing and it seems as though the free-flowing braless trend is on the rise this summer. Want to ditch the tight, pinching, underwire contraption that’s ruled your life ever since puberty and let the girls breathe for a day? Just be sure to stick to these tips and you should be just fine.
1) Don’t Bend Over
Dropped a tissue on the ground at the train station or something? Leave it. Someone (whether it’s come creep with a camera phone or some girl your age mumbling “oh my god, wear a bra” under her breath) will notice.
2) DON’T Wear a White Shirt

I used to hate being pale. I desperately envied the girls who came back from spring break with perfect, even tans. My skin burns incredibly easily, so unless I cake on bottles and bottles of sunscreen, I end up the color of a boiled lobster. I mean really, really red. Fire engine, ripe tomato red. Eventually, my sunburns fade into tans, but that takes weeks, and my “tan” is pretty pale by most people’s standards.
After years of lamenting my pasty state, I finally realized: I’m never going to be tan! My skin has always been and will always be pale. Baby, I was born this way.
Here are the reasons why I don’t tan:
Skin cancer. Yes, this one is obvious.

One of my favorite stores to shop for cute clothes is Kohl’s. One reason I love it so much is because it’s always been there for me. So many times I’ve needed something last minute, like a pair of slacks for a job interview or the perfect pair of shoes for an outfit, and I can find the perfect solution almost instantly at Kohl’s, while other stores didn’t have anything. On top of all that, I love that mostly everything is pretty affordable — especially when there’s a great sale (and there’s almost always some kind of sale going on). Check out these great picks from Kohl’s for under $20! View the rest of the picks under $20 by clicking here and heading to CollegeCandy!
