The days are cold, the nights are colder, and temperatures in specific buildings on campus are only dropping due to propane shortages. Fashion doesn’t stop for a change in temperature, however. It merely adapts and improvises. Students are grabbing the opportunity to layer up and bundle up. Here are some examples of how Messiah students are staying warm and classy.

Cold fashion1Sweaters: You can’t go wrong with sweaters when looking for a fashionable clothing piece to maintain a consistent (preferably warm) body temperature. In this weather, however, sweaters aren’t enough on their own. Junior Danny Rowe demonstrates how to pair a sweater with a thick button down for an added layer of warmth.

Cold fashion 2Vests: It can be challenging to find a warm clothing piece that won’t restrict you. No one wants to wear their jacket all class period. Therefore, a vest is a great alternative! Pairing her vest with a scarf, sophomore Jana Franey exemplifies this fashionable look of the season. Vests are also great for wearing over sweatshirts, sweaters, flannels, etc. Once you see how warm a vest can be in this frigid weather, it will become a wardrobe necessity.

Cold fashion 3Jackets: Don’t even think about going outside or sitting through class without a jacket on hand. This wardrobe staple can also double as a fashion statement. It’s cold outside and jackets are warm so why not try a look similar to sophomore Sam Boden, who sports his jacket as an added layer to his ensemble.

Cold fashion 4Or maybe try a jacket look comparable to first-year Olivia Thomas’s. She shows how well a jacket can complement an outfit, perfect for getting you to and from academic buildings, the dining hall or your dorm. Her dark, solid-colored jacket is a perfect example of a jacket that pairs well with almost anything, providing both warmth and style.

Cold fashion 5Shoes: Often taken for granted, shoes are a cold weather fashion necessity! How can you tell if your shoes are adequate for the cold? If you can’t wear thicker socks with your shoes or they don’t hold up well in the snow, you might want to save them for a warmer day. Sophomore Evan Lebo shows a how to properly combat the cold with his shoe choice.

Cold fashion 6Accessories: Scarves serve as added protection for warmth around your neck and chest. During the cold winter months, thick, knit scarves are especially great. Try a neutral colored scarf, which can be versatile enough to wear during class with your outfit and outside of the classroom.  As shown by sophomore Shayna Delaney, scarves pair well with warm jackets and winter boots, two other fashion musts for the unavoidable cold weather.

As shown by these Messiah students, it is best to prepare yourself before taking on the cold arctic tundra that is the outdoors. Planning your outfits accordingly for the possibility of it being cold both inside and out. The weather hasn’t taken a break yet, so why should your fashion?
