For the ladies out there who feel like they must wear the short shorts and mini-skirts, throw some tights on underneath. No one looks good wearing a terrible cough or pneumonia. So when you wake up in the morning and realize that it's cold don't put on a pair of Uggs and think that they will warm you entire body. If you don't like to wear huge coats or jeans, try a cute skirt and tights or try putting on layers. A sweater with a long-sleeved shirt underneath will help keep you warm and healthy, unlike a short sleeved t-shirt, running shorts, and Ugg boots.
Another cute item that you can wear to protect yourself from the cold is a scarf. Yes guys, scarves are not only for fashion, they can also keep your neck warm. WOW!! Not only do they protect you from cold, but they also spice up every outfit. So before you run out of the dorm in the morning throw one on.
On a positive note, I have seen some of the most amazing boots walking around campus this week. The super sexy, stylish ways that I have seen people rocking boots has really been impressive. This is a great way for you to keep warm. Don't throw on a pair of flip-flops with your tights or jeans. Go out and grab a pair of cute ankle high boots or a pair of knee high boots.
Also for the guys, I think that you all should remember to stay warm in order to stay healthy as well. Don't forget that it's okay for guys to wear scarves. Actually, it's pretty attractive and makes you look very sophisticated (if you do it right). Guys, it's okay to wear your grungy tees and your ripped jeans, but also try to layer it up. If you must show some skin, try to only do it once your in class. A nice hoodie or coat from Oldnavy can do the trick. And they're pretty cheap! yay! And although many of you guys are getting more and more comfortable wearing flip-flops, it's not a good idea to wear them now. Your feet need to be covered in this kind of weather. So try getting some boots (Polo boots are HOT) or try getting a nice pair of Sperry's.
Okay guys, I know I'm not a doctor, but after seeing many of the students walking around campus wearing summer outfits, I realized that common sense is apparently not common. So remember that's it's getting cold out there and if you want to look good on the outside, and you want to stay fashionable, you also need to want to stay healthy!
