CSUSB is one of the most diverse campuses in Southern California and even more diverse when it comes to its student’s fashion.
Walking onto the campus you immediately see the variety of different styles: from the student union, to the lecture halls, to even the library.
Some students decide to dress up in the latest trends, while others tend to go for a comfier look.
Students are transitioning to a more spring look.
Residents are in the process of trading in their coats and scarfs for tank tops and sandals.
California has had its bipolar weather these last couple of days, where one day it’s a stormy overcast and the next a mid-summer’s day.
It’s very interesting to see our campus go from winter to spring fashion, so I spoke to some ‘Yotes to see what their go-to style is during this crazy Cali forecast.
“It’s sometimes hard to dress up in the morning because you don’t really know how the weather is going to be…you can never go wrong with light clothes,” said Junior Jasmine Quintero.
Jimmie King is breaking the classic stereotype of what it looks like to be a chemistry student, rocking a denim on denim outfit inspired by comedian Kevin Heart.
“He was wearing this in an interview with the Rock that I saw on Instagram and I thought for sure, I’ve never done that before and I have red shoes,” explained King.
He also explained that his favorite stores range from Pacsun to H&M, and sometimes lurks into Forever 21.
Alberto Mendoza, sporting a red
Trashers hat, a black graphic t-shirt, and black Vans closely resembling that of a skater, talked to us about how he deals with the transition from winter to spring.
“It’s not very hard, when it’s too hot I wear shorts and a t-shirt and when it’s too cold I wear pants and a jacket. I just wear what I think looks comfy and cool,” explained Mendoza.
Now that spring is around the corner, we are starting to see students incorporate more color and patterns into their wardrobe.
Student Esso Omuson wore an authentic Nigerian shirt filled with many patterns and beautiful greens, oranges, and reds.
“This is a perfect time to wear this because there is a breeze outside and the sun is out so there is good lighting and especially for bright colors like these and it makes your skin kind of glow,” said the fashionista.
Another fashionable student is Maryam Hassan, who was dressed in a charcoal gray jacket, a white shirt and a brown hijab—perfect for the
transitioning of winter to spring.
“I love simplicity. I’m not into very ostentatious dressing. I like simplicity but I still like looking nice so that would be my inspiration, to find the simplest nicest thing that appeals to me,” said Hassan.
This campus is slowly moving to spring and it’s very exciting to see the changes undergo before our eyes.
