Definite trends right now are fun accessories like fur and scarves to jazz up multiple layers and unique coats. But your absolute must on campus? Winter boots!

“My favorite thing I’m wearing is my fur vest and sunglasses, I always have to wear them. It’s faux fur because I had a bunny rabbit growing up.” — Maddie Mayerson, senior.


“I love my fur because ti adds class to a very casual outfit, and it keeps me warm! I like to wear multiple layers with different colors and patterns, like my shirt.” — Barbara Florvil, senior.


“I love my coat! My mom gave it to me and it’s really comfortable. I never leave my house without this coat.” – Ana Kanter, senior.


“My favorite thing I’m wearing is definitely this blue J. Crew jacket I have. It was too light without a sweatshirt though. I like slim or skinny jeans and simple, lighter clothes. I guess I’d say it’s sporty chic.” — Joey Reiff, sophomore.
