Clothing is art.

From skirts to bow ties, clothing fads are an expression of oneself. Trends can be found in even the laziest of clothes; finding them is just the beginning. Winter is usually a time for big heavy boots, snowpants three times the size of a regular human body and coats that make the wearer look like a marshmallow left over the fire a little too long.

But, with a little bit of a sense for adorable clothing, having a wardrobe of cute trends isn’t hard. Winter fashion is all about how teens can express themselves even with the below freezing temperatures in Michigan.

“My fashion affects my life by making me feel good about myself,” sophomore Margaret Darwin said. “I get compliments on my wardrobe a lot, and that helps my self esteem.”

Inspiration for an adorable outfit can be easy to find if you look for the right things in the right places. Sometimes a little bit of thought is all it takes.

“Seeing what someone else finds tasteful through their art, photography and style is inspiring,” junior Tyler Wayne said. “I think any display of creativity inspires me because we all have our own taste.”
