Stony Brook Students Combat the Cold With Fashion

Stony Brook University students look to fashion to help combat the cold while walking from class to class.

“Bundling up with a scarf and lot of layers,” is how Laura Acosta, a senior sociology major, said she stays warm, along with moving from class to class as fast as possible.

Eileen Corrado, a senior psychology major, also walks quickly to class, but said she stays warm by wearing long coats.

Shannah Ferrante, a senior psychology major, said she always wears scarves and hats, joking that she looks to Eskimos for winter style inspiration.

“Always have coffee in hand,” she recommended, as another way to keep warm.

Both Ferrante and Corrado said they prefer summer fashion to winter clothes.

“This is pretty rough,” Ferrante said about this season.

Shannon Melanson, prefers mittens and layers as her method of fighting the cold. The junior health science major said she did not go outside for 20 hours yesterday and resorts to running between different buildings on her way to class to avoid the low temperatures.

One student found a winter-fashion hybrid called “glittens” to stay warm.
