Fashion File: Bundle up for the Polar Vortex in a cute warm winter coat

Leah Taylor, Staff Writer

Winter is officially upon us, and the weather is quickly becoming colder, especially with the recent polar vortex. It is important to stay warm by bundling up in hats, scarves, mittens, and jackets. This year, there is a wide variety of popular jackets that are both warm and fashionable

“Most days, I wear SAM jackets, but when it is very cold, I wear a jacket from the North Face because it is much warmer and has a hood,” said sophomore Maya Konoff.

SAM sells merchandise both online and in stores across the nation. They specialize in jackets, which are available at their New York City store in a variety of colors. These jackets come in many different styles including down coats, coats with hoods, and vests.

The North Face has been popular for years, and you can buy their signature coats or fleeces online or in stores like Sundown Ski Shop and REI.

“I usually wear a North Face coat because I really like the style,” said junior Emily Cavallaro.

North Face also sells high-quality hats, gloves, and other clothing items. In addition, they have backpacks, tents, and other gear.

L.L. Bean is another well-known brand. Although L.L. Bean is mostly online, they have a huge store in Maine. They are famous for their Duck Boots, but their jackets are very well designed and easy to carry around since they pack down so well.

“I wear a down coat from L.L. Bean since it is small but warm and is able to pack down for travel,” explains junior Abby de Reyna.

This year’s jacket trends will keep you both warm and trendy during the upcoming winter months!
