As the winter season continues, it feels like there is no end to this dreary weather. People often dress according to the gloomy weather, and gray, black and other neutrals reflect what the students are feeling inside. When I saw the exciting pop of color, I was automatically drawn to this Fashionista. The pink piece she had on her head was enough to make her stand apart from the crowd. It was a bright vivid piece and made her look warm and sweet amongst the rest of the school population. When winter blues never seem to go away, a pop of color can make all the difference.
