Natty Nittany: Spring (And Sundresses) Are Here

After a seemingly never-ending winter, the first few days of warm weather this year had students out in the sun. With temperatures rising above 70 degrees on Monday, high spirits were as abundant as the sun’s rays. The warm weather and the last few weeks of the school year come coupled with the exchange of winter coats for sun dresses and fashionable shorts. Finally, spring has sprung around State College and everyone is dressing for the occasion. With that in mind, we hit the town in search of the best spring fashion in the latest edition of Natty Nittany.

We first found grad student Andrea Chan, who was rocking a Forever 21 dress and shoes from Macy’s. The ecology major seemed comfortable and chic as she made her way across Old Main lawn. Chan was one of many girls who chose the cute but casual spring dress to wear on her way to classes.

The next student to catch our eye was nutrition major Ashley Madura. She kept it stylish with a Fossil watch that she paired with Forever 21 earrings, a scarf from Amazon, and Payless shoes. Any simple outfit can be spiced up with a fun, eye-popping color scarf.

But what about the guys? Patrick Hartman chose a colorful Urban Outfitters shirt and pair of glasses. He told us he is an employee at the store and it makes up a big part of his wardrobe.  He paired his favorites with Steve Madden shoes and a Motorola watch. Hartman looked cool and comfortable as he made his way across campus.

Mia Chen caught our attention as she walked across campus sporting a yellow shawl all the way from Japan. She wore it over an Urban Outfitters shirt and paired it with H&M Shoes. Chen told us she received the shawl as a gift from a family friend. Chen shows us how a bright colored piece can make a darker colored outfit full of life.

What’s a better way to celebrate the new season than wearing flowery prints? Freshman Alex Catania knew just that and rocked a flowery PacSun shirt with a Lucky Brand bag to match. She styled a Forever 21 denim jacket to go on top. Catania wasn’t dismayed by the great amount of work her mechanical engineering major carried, and looked excited for spring as she walked around downtown.

No matter what you’re wearing for your spring style, it’s nice to see all the heavy coats and gloves disappear. Whether it be spring dresses, bright colors, or playful accessories, Penn State students know how to show their style. New trends along with past favorites are just another reason why we’re happy spring is here.
