ENTER THE MATRIX

Jeb Fronda, MEGAstyle Editor-in-Chief

Black has always been my go-to color ever ever since I can remember. When I was a chubby kid I knew that black would definitely hide the parts that I didnt like. Now that Im older and not caring too much about how my body looks, black would always make for a chic statement. Dont get me wrong, I still love me some color but with the lazier days created by staying at home, facing a computer all day for Zoom calls, the easiest way to look presentable and elevated is through the color black.

The versatility of the color is also something to be excited about. Want to look sexy? Wear it in sheer and lace. Powerful? Choose tailored pieces. Easy and carefree? Pick up some co-ord knits. With everything thats happening in the world, sometimes we just want an easy way to look put together as quick as possible, and my answer would always and forever be the darkest shade of black.

ON WHITE

Mika Reyes, Beauty & Features Writer

I didn’t choose white because it’s my favorite color. I chose white because it’s timeless, effortless, and my favorite color. Going in to quarantine, we didn’t expect the amount of time we’d be spending at home.

Somehow, our whole lives were shifted indoors. In the process, I found that the color white has been my go-to for all my indoors meetings, whether they be personal or professional. Additionally, many brands have played with white throughout the year 2020. Truly, the basic shade has become more than just a fashion staple. It has become the symbol of a clean slate—a fresh start to creativity.

AN ODE TO FAIR VERONA

Brie Ventura, Multimedia Artist




I’ve always believed that fashion is cyclical. As a self-confessed hopeless romantic, waiting for the revival of period staples has never been this prosaic. Now that some of us have an appetite for vintage shopping, the long wait has finally come to an end. But what’s in a name?

From brocades to luxe jackets, ruffled lace bibs to satin silhouettes and far more, Victorian-inspired style exudes a dreamy distinction. A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, as Juliet likes to say. No other era style-wise lends itself to a more dramatic finish, thanks its intricate laces and crushed velvets that give you that thespian look. Anyone searching for a striking old world look should turn to the Victorian era for sartorial inspiration.

This is your sweet sonnet personified—the modern Romeo and Juliet you and every romantic ought to be (tragedy not included).
