Winter in college seems like it comes out of nowhere. One second it’s the first week of school, with temperatures rising to the likes of 80 degrees, and dreams of a brisk fall day in a chunky knit sweater are on the horizon. Only a few weeks later, on a random day, usually around October, Fall finally arrives, and students are left with the faint memory of what it feels like to be drenched in sweat by the time they reach the classroom. Dressing for class during the winter months can sometimes be a challenge, but thankfully new styles have come onto the market that maximize warmth, comfort, and fashion.
Teddy Jackets are a major trend this season. They are warm enough to be a blanket, and make it easy to stay comfortable and cozy while walking around campus

Puffer Jackets are extremely practical and are always in style. For days when the temperature drops below 40 degrees, it is essential to layer. Puffer jackets are the best (and warmest) option to top off all of those layers.
