Students are always making good and bad choices when dressing themselves in the morning, forgetting that fashion makes a statement.
“When I’m in a rush in the morning I grab the quickest thing possible,” said student Carmen Reyes, “although I’m comfortable, I know I don’t look my best.”
Keeping the cold weather in mind is a must when choosing your outfit to start your day off right.
“Everyone can wear whatever they want whenever they want, but it is irrational to wear short shorts during winter,” said student Jessica Botello.
A way to wear shorts in cold weather while avoiding freezing your butt off, is to style them with a cute pair of stockings underneath.
When aiming to dress to impress, it is important to consider the color and fit of the particular clothing pieces you decide to wear.
Dark colors such as navy blue and burgundy are good for the winter, while neon colors are too bright for this overcast weather.
When it comes to styling your clothes take into consideration that it doesn’t matter if the style is trending, what does matter is if the fit personally flatters you.
Crop tops that lay above the belly button are not for everyone, but it’s definitely not necessary to show skin to grab attention.
Accentuating the best features of your body, while showing less skin is something that gets great feedback.
Extremely baggy clothes on both women and men can be very unflattering. They could make you seem bigger than you really are or make you seem sluggish.
“Honestly, baggy clothes that are super large, is something that needs to stay in the past,” said student Arnold Robles.
If you’re aiming for that baggy, fashion forward look, I suggest finding inspiration from high fashion collections such as Givenchy’s ready-to-wear looks of spring/summer 2016, showcased during New York Fashion Week.
For a more modern wearable look, you can balance baggy t-shirts with fitted pants or vice versa, bell bottoms or boyfriend jeans with a fitted top. You’ll feel comfortable and look good while doing it.
Another thing to think twice about is wearing graphic t-shirts because what they display can send out a message you are not trying to send.
The t-shirt could either be bold, making you stand out, cheesy, labeling you as an outcast, or just plain offensive.
“I think it’s tacky when guys wear graphic tees with naked women on them,” said student Eric Jones, “It’s obvious that they’re just looking for attention.”
Sandals are not possible to wear on those chilly days, without later regretting it when you can’t feel your toes.
“Some people try to pull off sandals with socks in the Winter,” said student Jackie Padilla, “and it’s just not cute, there’s just no way to wear them in cold weather.”
Fashion is filled with trial and error but it’s something that will never be a total loss. Every day is a new chance to get back in the game.
