IN STYLE: Vanderbilt students bundle up against the cold

What to wear when you don't get that 5 a.m. cancellation email

When we came to Vanderbilt, many of us arrived from colder climates and set aside our parkas and wool socks. Yet here we are, drudging through icy campus paths in single digit temperatures. Some of us react to the lack of class cancellations by begrudgingly trekking from building to building in baggy sweatpants and slippers. Others view the powdery white backdrop as an opportunity to don their best winter fashion. Take notes from this week’s featured students on how to handle the cold without sacrificing style.

Michael Moblui
Winter staple: “I’m wearing H&M joggers with zippers on the side. I have a nice warm blue bomber that keeps me warm. Definitely had to pull my fur out today.”

Winter staple: “I really like my tank top. Everyone has already yelled at me for wearing it, but I wear it in the classroom because it balances out the indoor and outdoor temperatures.”

Jeremy Mani
Winter staple: “This sweater was on hella sale. I’m from Houston, so this is pretty much what I’m wearing for the next 30 days.”

Winter staple: “My handmade crochet scarf. It would get wet if I wore it sledding though. Extra socks are also important. My toes are pretty numb right now.”
