As February comes to a close, students on campus are stuck in a transitional period in between winter and spring clothing, and many are using layering a way to transition their on-campus style.
For Theresa Kelley, a junior double major in music education and Spanish, a transitional out fit is all about dressing for the temperature. On Feb. 15, Kelley wore a flannel from Faded Glory, paired with a Greek-lettered t-shirt from Something Greek, her favorite high-heeled boots from Steve Madden, and Aerie leggings. She layered the flannel over the t-shirt for some extra warmth.
“I would wear this for the temperature. It isn’t bright spring colors, but to me this would be a transitional outfit,” Kelley said.
Vanessa Villani, a junior photography major, said her favorite piece of transitional clothing is her J Crew vest. “It transitions from winter to spring,” Villani said, “because it is a vest and not a heavy coat.” She wore her vest layered on top of an oversized sweatshirt, leggings, brown moccasins, and a small Mickey Mouse-shaped silver necklace.
Morgan Tiggs, a sophomore health science major, wore an outfit appropriate for the transitional period from winter into spring, as well. She paired a hooded jacket with ripped light wash skinny jeans and sneakers, accessorizing with her gold watch and necklace. According to Tiggs, hoodies are the best winter apparel item because “you can always throw one on; they’re casual and comfortable.”
There are also ways to dress-up a transitional outfit. Destinee Pierre, a freshman political science major, wore a staple piece for a winter-to-spring wardrobe, a cropped sweatshirt. Her Charlotte Rousse sweatshirt also included a rose design along the sleeves, a popular 2018 trend. She wore this over a white tank from Forever 21 paired with ripped blue jeans from Fashion Nova.
For students trying to stay warm and still wear outfits that transition into spring, layering is an easy fashion option.
