Winter: A time where fashion gets put on the back burner. Bundling up in layers takes more importance than keeping up on the latest trends. But through it all some students can find ways to be fashionable while keeping warm.
For first-year Kacie Deavers, scarves are a great way to stay on trend, but also be practical at the same time. “They are warm, yet stylish. They can be dressed up or down,” Deavers said. Add a bright color to a dark outfit, or add a pattern to switch it up, all while staying warm.
For first-year Olivia Young, dark lips are a great way to keep up the warm look of winter, but stand out. ”Because in the colder season darker lips are in more. They can be seen as sexy, classy, or glamorous,” Young said. Lipstick is a great way to mix up a look, without breaking the bank.
First-year Katelyn O’Hare believes that vests are the perfect way to stay warm, yet up with the trends.
“One of my favorite things to wear in the winter are vests because you can throw it over almost everything, they’re warm, and add a winter touch to your outfit,” O’Hare said. Throwing on a vest can keep a student warm when outside, but unbulky in class.
What started for military use has now transitioned into a stylish, practical coat that can be seen on runways. Junior Erin Andrus participates in this trend. “They are very warm and cozy, yet can look very fashionable with the right accessories and a belt,” Andrus said. Parkas are perfect for the below zero days.
Almost every student needs boots, but exchanging style for practicality is not always necessary.
“The winter can get cold when trudging through the snow, so cute, warm boots are a necessity,” sophomore Alyssa Wilkinson said. Snow boots are classic and will never go out of style.
