STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Puffy Parka

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Puffy Parka

As the weather gets colder and students are returning to campus, they are facing the problem of having to walk from building to building in the cold. No more scurrying from cars to indoors, the pleasantries of being home over winter break have diminished. The problem these students are facing is how to stay warm AND stylish. Your ski coat has no place on campus, keep that look for the slopes please. What can provide the same comfort and warmth of your ski coat but translate into a stylish look to turn heads you ask? I encountered a well-known junior here on campus who was rocking a popular trend on campus: the puffy parka.

The puffy parka is a girl’s best friend during the winter season.This parka from Express is cinched with a gold belt that adds some shine to this classic look. This Fashionista accents her gold belt and buttons with a pair of knotted gold stud earrings. Her multi-toned boots from Sorel go well with this chic and practical style for being on the go. This winter wear prepares the modern day college student for walking through the blustery days and encountering unexpected flurries and icy pathways. Paired with a cute knit headband, this Fashionista’s look supports comfort and warmth as a whole package. If you’re looking to stay classy and cute without shivering in your boots, a fitted puffy parka is a good investment this season.

What is YOUR STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Make sure to wear boots! You don’t want to slip on your bottom on the way to class. No one wants to sit in wet pants. Staying warm and dry is a must!”
