This semester, girls all over campus are wearing stylish outerwear hats and headbands.
These trends have been around for quite awhile, but it seems like they have taken over ESU’s campus.
Even more guys than usual can be seen wearing the hipster -like beanies to class.
Headbands are a timeless fashion statement.
They come in different patterns and materials to cater to an individual’s personal style.
Some of the more popular outerwear styles have knit bows or studs on them.
Be plain or spice it up with a pattern.
Charlotte Russe and Forever 21 at the Crossing Premium Outlets have so many affordable choices for college students that are also trendy.
Along with the headbands that can also serve as ear warmers for colder weather are plain old-fashioned headbands that can be worn year round.
One of the more popular styles that is making its way back is the headband that goes across the forehead.
It has been seen on style icons dating as far back as Cleopatra.
It then made its way through the Gatsby and Hippie eras, and has finally come to our generation.
It is great because it can be as simple as tying a ribbon around your head or wearing a bedazzled one for a night out.
A girl can never go wrong with a headband as her main accessory.
Now back to outwear styles.
Girls and guys have taken complete advantage of beanie caps in the Poconos.
They can be worn with almost any casual outfit for a little extra flare.
Pacsun seems to be the main store that the beanie-wearing crowd purchases their go-to accessory for class.
Although they may not be for everyone, a lot of people are continuing to wear them to class or even to the bars.
The solid colored hats are the top choice, but students are sporting beanies with sayings such as “peace” and “love” for a dramatic affect.
If you want to wear a beanie, make sure it reflects your personality.
As we move towards the warmer weather, these trends may fade for the season.
Some students may choose to continue them during the warmer months to possibly avoid bad hair days, but it depends on the person.
For now, keep the trends alive and stay stylish!
