Students rush from class to class in an attempt to avoid the rain. The same bulky Oregon hoodies, rain boots, and sweats are everywhere. Let’s face it, most people look like a wreck during winter term. However, sophomore Dalouny Singkhek is one of the few to get it right–she has cold-weather style perfected with the use of layers, accessories, and comfortable yet functional pieces. The education major, who brands her style as “girly,” turns simple outfits into something more by adding winter-friendly pieces that keep her warm and look adorable, too. Drawing inspiration from starlets like Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Karrueche Tran, and Lucy Hale, Singkhek’s style is one to take note of. We sat down to chat about some of her cold weather necessities.
How would you describe your ideal winter outfit?
A scarf, headband, tight skirt, tights, loose sweater, pea coat, and boots.
Cute! So are those some of your “must have” pieces for winter?
Yes! Scarves, head-wear like beanies and headbands, and leggings are perfect for winter because they add something extra to simple outfits. And they help keep you warm, which is always a plus!
What is your favorite trend you’ve seen on campus this winter?
Definitely over-sized sweaters, beanies, and combat boots.
Agreed. Where do you like to shop for things like that?
Urban Outfitters, Nordstrom, and H&M are perfect.
Do you have any advice for people who struggle to dress well in the winter?
You could wear leggings, boots, and one of those puffy North Face jackets to stay warm, but just throwing on a pair of long socks or leg warmers with your boots will make an outfit better. Also, adding winter headgear like a beanie or headband will make a simple outfit much cuter.
