As winter continues to creep in and the temperatures drop, students are beginning to bundle up for the cold winter that lies ahead. In an effort to still show off their fashion trends without wearing a jacket, many students have started to wear sweaters: a perfect item for the chillier weather.

Sweaters offer students an alternative option to always wearing the same jacket to and from classes and activities while going on around campus. The size variations of sweaters allow fashionistas and fashionistos alike to either layer under or over for added warmth and expressiveness, as shown through Messiah students’ outfit choices.

Junior Jonathan Wolf was caught wearing a slightly oversized printed sweater, allowing him the opportunity to implement layering. His button down shirt peeks out from beneath his sweater, at the collar and sleeves, providing an added appeal to the ensemble. His plum colored pants tie in the muted hues of the sweater, while his footwear choice does not distract the eye from the outfit but rather compliments it as a whole.

“I try to dress how I feel,” explained Wolf. “If you feel good about how you look during the day, then I think you’ll have a better day.”

Showing her take on sweaters, junior Kelly Choi chose to layer over her sweater with a plush, neutral colored vest. Choi’s navy blue sweater is tighter fitting, giving her the opportunity to layer while still appearing chic.

“I think fashion at Messiah is such an amazing thing because it’s one of very few schools where students are encouraged by their peers to look nice, and where dressing up instead of down is the norm on campus,” expressed Choi in her view of fashion at Messiah. Her jeans give the outfit a comfortable appearance, perfect for a busy school day, while her heels give the outfit the heightened excitement it deserves.

As an added accessory, Choi’s Lilly Pulitzer handbag not only provides her outfit with a pop of color but a fun and unique way to haul around maybe not so fun textbooks.

While paired easily with other fashion pieces, sweaters can also work by themselves to pull outfits together without layering. Junior, Ryan Lago, shows off his sweater in a more modestly fashionable way. Tying neutral colors in together, Lago’s grey sweater paired with olive green pants proves you can never go wrong with a classic look. His footwear accentuates the overall appeal of the outfit, as they appear rustic, while tying in a modern taste.

The season of sweater weather is only beginning. Try out some new spins on sweaters and see how you can use them in a multipurpose fashion.
