Aggie Style Watch: California cold


Busting out the scarves and sweaters.

With temperatures dropping and fall weather finally showing its face, Davis students have begun pulling out their sweaters and scarves. I went out this week in search of a fall look that embraces the weather and was not disappointed.

Alexandra Yan, a second-year majoring in neurobiology, physiology and behavior, embraces the fall weather with a more modern edge, without compromising comfort and practicality.

asw_ar_Gelvezon3ASW: How would you describe your style?

Yan: I like to be comfortable, but I try to keep myself looking pretty sleek or modern. That’s probably the best way I can describe it.

ASW: Do you have any fashion inspirations?

Yan: I don’t have a main inspiration. Usually it’s just what I see online. I like going on lookbook.com to see what people are wearing and trying to recreate some looks in my own way. My housemate has a subscription to Cosmopolitan so I sometimes look through that too.

asw_ar_Gelvezon2ASW: Would you say you put style over comfort?

Yan: I think you can have both comfort and style. I like to be comfortable and look well put together; it makes me feel good for the day.

ASW: What’s your favorite item in your wardrobe?

Yan: I have a circle scarf that’s a pretty teal color. It was handmade by my mom and is one of my favorites to wear during [the] winter.

ASW: Do you prefer dressing for cold weather or hot weather?

Yan: Cold weather. I feel like I can put on more during winter in terms of layering. In summer I’m just trying to stay as cool as possible.

ASW: Is there a decade of fashion that stands out for you?

Yan: I really like the ‘40s, even though I don’t really dress like the ‘40s. I like how it’s very feminine and modern at the same time.
