Well Penn State, we finally made it through. Winter is over. The flowers are blooming, the ice has melted, and those lovely first signs of Penn State spring time have finally begun. With this gorgeous weather comes a new wave of fashion for Penn Staters. We toss aside the chunky parkas and gloves for some breezy flannels and ripped jeans.
We took to the streets to find some great spring outfits, and you delivered. Here’s Natty Nittany: Spring has Sprung edition.
Junior Jon Wang sports an outfit that comes thanks to a collection of hand-me-downs. His button-up flannel is from his father while his Hard Rock tee is from his cousin. He is wearing some basic blue jeans from Walmart and sneakers from Rapid Transit.
Alejandra Espinoza, a sophomore, got her style straight from American Eagle. From head to toe, she rocks the all-American outlet, giving her a cool spring vibe. Her ripped white jeans perfectly compliment a red and black flannel and green denim jacket. Her simple leather flats are from Zara.
Sophomore Jessie Penco keeps it simple and breezy with some leggings from Victoria’s Secret, a pale blue top from Marshall’s, and a sweater from H&M. “I’m not sure about the shoes though. They were a Christmas present!” she laughed.
Megan Mench, sophomore, wears dark blue skinny jeans, a tribal top, and a denim jacket. Her outfit consists of apparel from American Eagle and Target. She also sports her all-time favorite blue Keds.
Elizabeth Owolabi, a junior, wears her favorite maroon leather jacket — a gift from her best friend. She’s also wearing simple blue jeans, and a hat she purchased during a fun weekend in Washington D.C.
Kisik Harry Woo is looking fresh in a jacket from FR Diamond Supply company, a watch from Timex, beige shoes from Wtaps, and blue stone-washed jeans from Zara. Hailing from Korea, Kisik purchased his olive scarf from a small boutique in the city of Seoul.
Sophomore Julia Magowan is wearing her favorite black jeans from Urban Outfitters, a blouse from Forever 21, sandals from Macy’s, and a green jacket from Dwelling’s — a boutique downtown. She completed her look with a patterned scarf from a street fair in Philadelphia.
So far, this Spring weather has inspired many Penn State fashionistas. Keep the style coming!
