A Bundle of Essentials

Each season brings a new round of trends worth adding to your closet. From clothes to accessories, this cozy starter pack includes some of our staffs’ favorite picks for 2019 winter essentials.


Due to the chilly weather and rain, beanies have also become a common accessory  this winter. Although students at DBHS are not allowed to wear these hats on campus, the trend has not stopped on social media. Beanies are not only being worn during  annual ski resort trips, but are now also being worn on the streets as a fashion accessory. Solid colors such as red, beige or yellow are often worn to compliment winter outfits, and brands such as Dickie’s are a popular purchase


Layering is often done with a solid colored or striped long-sleeve top underneath a baggier short-sleeve shirt. Another popular option this season includes wearing turtlenecks as the base and layering with a corduroy or a patterned dress. These cozy and comfy layers not only combat the winter chill, but also give students a reason to step out their fashion comfort zones.


Puffer jackets rose to popularity after many internet influencers were seen wearing them, they’re not only stylish but also a great way to keep warm as the poofy material is very comfortable. This item is usually worn cropped, and can be found in stores like Urban Outfitters and Brandy Melville.


Although these trendy boots rose to popularity in the summer, they are the perfect addition to any outfit you wear in the colder months. The shoes are an essential to staying warm and waterproof during rainy winter days, and the staple black color allows the boots to be paired with a variety of different looks. Doc Martens can be worn with mom jeans or skirts for the perfect cozy and cute outfit.


Fuzzy socks are a necessity for every winter season, and this year is no different. These soft socks not only keep feet warm, but they also give students the chance to show off quirky patterns and colors. Make a bold fashion choice this winter by wearing these cozy essentials to school.


There is no doubt that plaid pants and high-waisted skirts have shot up the popularity charts this winter. Although these patterned bottoms are harder to incorporate into your outfit, they will add just the right amount of edginess to an otherwise average school look when paired with a solid T-shirt or jacket. Since plaid pants are usually on the baggier side, they also can be cinched in at the waist with a stylish belt.


Admit it, almost everyone came back to school after Black Friday with a new Teddy Coat, but for a good reason. These fluffy jackets made of faux fur resemble huge blankets and are the perfect cozy coats to wear to school on those cold winter days. They come in a variety of colors and sizes and have been seen on popular clothing websites such as Urban Outfitters and Brandy Melville. The trend has even transgressed gender barriers, as unisex teddy coats are now also being sold in stores like UNIQLO.
