As chillier weather fast approaches, students are swapping out their flannels for warmer jackets this winter season.
Graceanna Gargano, a junior political science major, said her staple winter outfit includes a jacket, boots, a sweater, jeans, or a pair of sweatpants.
Gargano said during the colder season, lighter colors are her go-to for winter fashion.
“Even though it may be controversial, I wear winter-white and all white outfits frequently in the winter,” Gargano said.
She said she is more into neutral colors but likes adding a pop of color depending on the season.
“I would match with the holiday that is in that month, like red for February and green for March,” she said.
Gargano said an outfit is not fully complete without accessories, such as rings and necklaces. She said she is a big fan of hats and neutral-colored bags in the winter.
“I can always be found in a bucket hat, bonus points if they are fluffy,” Gargano said.
Julianna Rei, a sophomore biology major, said she mostly wears gold jewelry in the winter because silver or white gold would “wash out” her complexion.
Along with jewelry, Rei said she likes to wear sweaters during the winter season.
“It keeps you warm and cute at all times with minimal effort,” she said.
Rei said, recently, her go-to outfit is a long black jacket with fur on the run of the hood and a sweatshirt underneath.
Another student, Neel Ganatra, a junior biology major, said his favorite winter outfit consists of a North Face puffer jacket, Carhartt pants and a pair of wool socks.
Ganatra said he accessorizes for the winter with beanies and rings. He said, when it gets cold, he likes adding a scarf to his look.
He said while shoes can make or break an outfit, he would prefer looks over warmth. Ganatra said he wears high top sneakers like Converse or Nike Blazers, but he also likes to wear Doc Martens.
Gargano agreed and said she would rather wear sneakers than boots.
“I have these nice pair of warm brown leather boots that I love to wear, but my go-to shoes are always sneakers,” Gargano said.
