As chilly weather slowly overtakes the Elsinore High School, it is indicative for students to realize that dressing warm has become a necessity. Slapping on only a shirt cannot keep a student from getting sick, which is why it is imperative to wear layers. Creating an outfit that has the main purpose to show off the layers allows a person to keep warm, while maintaining a fashionable look. Personally, my main pieces for layering clothes tend to be either a windbreaker or a jean jacket, paired with a hoodie and skinny jeans. Having this basic look allows me to mix and match with other articles of clothing, due to the surplus of windbreakers that I own. Sure, windbreakers made by big brand clothing companies are pricey, which is why I enjoy thrift shopping. Purchasing clothes at thrift stores allows me to give a sense of personality to my outfits. Instead of buying clothes in chain stores, where the same article of clothing is manufactured and distributed everywhere, the clothes at thrift stores are considered one-of-a-kind, since it is less likely to see another person with the same piece of clothing. Another plus of shopping at thrift stores is the low prices. I bought a windbreaker, that normally would range from thirty to fifty dollars, for a low cost of twelve dollars at a local thrift store. Ultimately, layering is a must in this winter season, and the best place to purchase some clothes that are both warm and fashionable, is at thrift stores.
