Finally, we are slipping into fall weather. As the weather changes, students’ styles change. Time to store away T-shirts, shorts and flip flops. Time to bring out sweatpants, leggings, jeans, and coats.
Frederick Community College student Hannah Walasik is wearing a tan tiger football sweatshirt, black sweatpants, and sneakers on a recent fall day. She says, “I always just like to be comfortable; I feel more relaxed and content when I am wearing comfortable clothing.” Walasik said she is into style and she dresses up for special events. When it comes to school, however, she feels she works best in comfortable attire.
Another FCC student, Chris Yacoubian, says, “It’s easier for guys to pick out what to wear in the morning. When it’s hot, I throw on shorts and a T-shirt. When it’s cold I throw on pants and a sweatshirt. But for girls, I feel like it’s a struggle for them putting outfits together in the morning.”
FCC student Sarah Brady is wearing a denim jacket, tan turtleneck, jeans, and black slip-on shoes. Brady says, “I love winter clothing. Turtlenecks are my favorite; they are so comfortable and keep me nice and warm!” Brady says she likes colder weather because she’s able to top her outfits off with a cute jacket or cardigan.
Also, Brady says when she wakes up in the morning for school, she always puts together a nicer outfit because she feels like it improves her attitude for the day. When she wears clothes like sweatpants and sweatshirts, she feels more tired, which makes it harder for her to complete her work to the best of her ability.
FCC student Rachel Rabanales is wearing a large comfortable cream cardigan over a light pink velvet shirt, jeans, and Adidas tennis shoes. Rabanales says, “I am really into fashion; I love watching YouTube videos about individuals sharing their clothing and fashion ideas.” Rabanales also shares that dressing up makes her feel more prepared for the day. And like Brady stated, Rabanales also agrees that wearing sweatpants and a sweatshirt makes her feel more tired and laid back.
