Let’s face it: Trump got impeached and nobody cared. The 45th President of the United States was investigated through multiple committees in the House of Representatives and impeached by a House vote of 230 to 197 and 229 to 198 on each Article, respectively. For the third time in American history, the commander in chief went through this careful constitutional process and was voted to stand trial in the Senate.

In the wake of the University of Michigan’s first Winter term sorority recruitment, a picture has surfaced with a line of underclassmen girls all wearing Canada Goose jackets. Memes aside, this picture reflects a much bigger story that has affected college campuses around the country. Encountering groups of couture-wearing college students is becoming more and more common. Why is it that over the past few years millennials and Gen Zers have witnessed the rise of the Gucci belt?
