Kelilah Newman-Anand, a freshman in Hive 6, loves a variety of autumn attire, but especially the snug and comfortable type. “Sweaters, and Doc Martens … boot-cut and flare jeans. I don’t know, just like warm and cozy clothes are literally the best,” Newman-Anand said.
Chang-Min Kung, a Berkeley International High School (BIHS) sophomore, said, “I like layering, and you can’t really do that in summer (or) spring because it gets hot.” She really appreciates how the change in weather provides that precious opportunity to layer.
Kira Cardenas, a sophomore in BIHS, enjoys the autumn color palette, and loves throwing on layers when the weather deems appropriate. “Sweaters, hoodies, jackets … and fall colors are my favorite, like warm browns, greens, and dark blues,” Cardenas said.
For Izzy Ely, a senior in Academic Choice (AC), a baggy, relaxed look is essential in autumn weather. “Layers, boots, hats, big pants, sweatshirts. I just like big, kind of comfy, but stylish clothes,” they said. Ely keeps it loose, but doesn’t neglect the importance of originality and fashion in their look.
Olivier Laurent, a junior in BIHS, likes “the ability to layer up and layer down as I choose.” Though Laurent’s favorite color scheme is dark, he uses fall to change things up. “I like being able to stand out, by going with very bright, very summery vibes. Just to throw people off,” he said.
Hannah Toch, a junior in AC, uses autumn as a chance to wear cozy and comfortable clothing. For Toch, the entire purpose of the season is “being warm, and being able to bundle up and be cozy. I mean, I’m literally the type of person to wear pajamas to school.”
