Last chill of the season allows cold-weather fashion one last blast

Students at the University of South Florida have gotten the knack of putting together their green and gold colors for athletic events, but what about their ability to stay fashionable in cold weather? What may be the last cold blast of air hit Tampa and the campus two weeks ago, giving students at least one more chance to trot out their fashionable winter wear.

There were no fur flurries, but a pair of old school Doc Martens were too cool for comfort. Even a great pair of accessories can add spice to an outfit fit for the outdoors. Some students cling to their favorite designer satchel for heat. Cole Haan was one of the brands. It’s not a pair of gloves, but who says you can’t cling to it for warmth. We wandered campus and here is what we found:

We also came up with a few links to where you can find the student’s cool threads.

Nick Trobiano, a senior studying magazine journalism, who loves Cole Haan in any type of weather, was wearing:

On the Way past the theatre I buildings and Beef O’ Brady’s we spotted Neelam Harinandonsingh and thought she looked quite comfortable sitting on a golf cart. She said she likes to keep things simple for school. Her boots are lined to keep her feet cozy.

It’s only a matter of time before the temperature hikes back up to the sweltering heat USF students are used to. That being said, we hope we’ve provided you with ways to stay warm and accessorize for those with deep pockets, and those whose are more shallow.
