So, the past few weekends here at Springfield College have been some pretty chilly ones. It was over these past two weekends that I noticed most of the students here forgot how to dress for the weather.
Yes, weekends are the time to dress really cute and look your best. However, when you are in a tank top and a short skirt and it’s 35 degrees outside, you don’t look cute anymore. You just look silly.
There is just no way that you are going to be comfortable in heels, a skirt and a tiny shirt when it’s freezing and you’re standing outside. Realistically, you are going to freeze and be unhappy with your outfit choice.
Have no fear though, there are ways to dress as cute as you’d like and stay warm.
You may have to try some new things and spend a little money, but believe me it’ll be worth it.
The first thing you must buy is a cute jacket. Find a little one that can be zipped or left open and still look amazing. Then when you find that jacket, buy it in every color they carry it in.
These jackets can be worn over your dresses and skirts. They can also work with a cute tank top and jeggings. The possibilities with the different colored jackets are endless.
Do you love heels? Because obviously they make you feel like a big girl. Well, get some cute black boots with a heel as they are warm and still make you feel like that big girl.
Now, most girls will refuse to abandon the, “must wear a skirt every night” mantra, but for those brave girls out there, try changing it up a little.
Unless you’re headed downtown, you really don’t need to be in a tight skirt every night.
Honestly, dressing like that to go to the Townhouses and off-campus houses is a little much. So, if you’re staying on campus and still want to look cute, try some patterned jeans or leggings.
Wear some nice, different pants with a cute top and jacket. You’ll look cute and won’t freeze your butt off doing it. Don’t be afraid to try new things and most of all, stay warm! Learn how to dress now and you’ll be happy later because it’s only going to get colder.
