Sweaters, scarves, coats, and boots are just a few of Granite Bay High School’s students’ favorite things, but with the weather still holding in the 80’s recently, we are all wondering when winter is going to show up in Granite Bay.
Some popular styles at GBHS in the winter and fall in the past have been the infamous Birkenstocks, big sweaters, leggings of course, scarves and much, much more.
New emerging styles like warm vests and socks and sandals have become more and more popular on campus lately.
GBHS junior Keaton Dougherty said that winter fashion is the best of the entire year.
“You can add more color and contrast to your outfit with more layers like button ups under sweaters, and jackets if it’s really cold,” Dougherty said.
Dougherty said he enjoys the later months and the fashion that comes with them, he will continue to wear his favorite winter outfits, with less layers, as it is not exactly cold enough for jackets, coats and layering yet.
Winter fashion seemed to be an agreeable favorite, as Whitney Knorp, a junior at GBHS, agreed with Dougherty.
“(Winter fashion) is much more comfortable than summer fashion and there is a wider variety of clothing to wear,” Knorp said.
Knorp said that she will wear winter clothes in the later months when it is not too cold, but sometimes refrains because of the lack of comfort of being too hot.
The recent warm weather doesn’t stop junior Julia Reece from sporting some winter fashion as well.
“I think winter clothes like jeans and leggings are more comfortable than shorts, so I wear them no matter the weather,” Reece said.
Reece said she enjoys big sweaters and the convenience of comfy warm clothes during the colder months, while still looking cute.
This unusually warm kickoff to fall and winter isn’t that unusual for the Granite Bay community.
In the past few years, the Sacramento area has been in a constant state of exceptionally warmer weather than expected for the months of October and November.
When will Granite Bay get to experience an actual winter?
Well, with the predictions of El Niño surging into our news, hopefully our community will see the other side of the weather spectrum for a change.
“We have had enough summer for the year,” Knorp said, “I think we are all ready to break out our coats and boots and experience fall.”
