Paris Hilton Tracksuits

by Susan Moore

Paris Hilton has officially announced the release of a new line of y2k inspired tracksuits. 

The timing is perfect; with the cold weather, rise of athleasure over the last decade, and the styles of previous decades trending. It seems like the perfect storm, destined to relaunch luxury tracksuits into the fashion-sphere. However, there are a few things working against Hilton in this endeavor.

With short form video content (see TikTok & Reels) being a highly influential source of fashion inspiration, microtrends are always coming and going. It seems as if this launch may not make a splash as much as a blip. Of course it will sell, but there is also the question of if Hilton herself is still relevant enough for her collection to make much of an impact.

While Hilton clings to y2k trends and their allignment to her hayday, she does have a decent sized fanbase who support her endeavors. Considering her preexisting cult following, as well as Gen Z consumers who enjoy the aughts aesthetic, Hilton may be able to garner a large enough audience for her collection to have more sticking power.

With these things in mind, here are the pieces that have the most promise:

1. That’s Hot Hoodie and Pant

2. Black Masterpiece Hoodie

3. Pink Heart on Your Sleeve Hoodie and Pant

4. Dazzle Color Block Hoodie and Pant

5. Track Star Bra

Fashion For a Cause: Brands That Stand with Palestine and the history of fashion as a form of Activism

by Oana-Maria Moldovan For over two months, there has been an ongoing genocide war in Gaza. To simplify a long and horrific issue, the situation that started, on a larger scale, around one hundred years ago, and has only become amplified since October 7th 2023. Taking place around the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, and Israel–Lebanon border, the armed conflict is between Israel and Hamas-led Palestinian militant groups.  The problem is about “stolen” land. Said land is seen as an important holy part of both religions involved. But really, how holy can we consider a land to be, if people kill other people for it? It’s important to remember that this genocide is about three things: forced occupation, zionism, and religion. It’s also important to remember what ethnic erasure is. This terrible expresion, also known as cultural or ethnic assimilation, refers to the process by which the distinct cultural or ethnic identity of a particular group is gradually diminished or erased, often due to ext

Now What? The Aftermath of the 'Manic Pixie Dream Girl'

by Susan Moore Here is a bit about me: I am an open, excitable, creative AFAB who is also moderately attractive. I have a unique sense of personal style and a personality that on the surface can only be described as “bubbly” and “quirky”. For this reason, dating is a nightmare. To be sure, I do not have a hard time finding dates or potential suitors. The problems arise when said dates spend some time with me and decide that I am a rare specimen, and the connection they feel with me is “unlike anything they have felt before”. Then, things go one of two ways.  Either a) they decide I am too high maintenance and no longer palatable, or  b) they choose to never look further than the surface and are content to date the idea of me rather than the real me. There is something rather interesting, perhaps funny, about my situation. It is in no way unique. I have met so many people who constantly dealt with the same problem. Even funnier still, is the fact that there is a trope that simultaneousl
