Fashion Column: The Trends of Canning Weekend No. 2

Story posted October 24, 2013 in CommRadio by Dana Rothstein

For anyone who was not on the roads this weekend, you missed quite the sight because every intersection of Bucks County, Pa., showed the true spirit of Penn State. What do I mean by that? Well, Penn State students did their charitable duties by taking to the streets while holding cans and raising money for THON. Pediatric cancer is something that happens on a daily basis, and Penn State students are doing what they can to stop it in its tracks.

As I drove past students, a consistent fashion pattern followed. The temperature has definitely dropped dramatically, so layers are currently worn by many. Thermals and sweaters were the top pieces while boots and jeans were the norm for the bottom. Every so often, I caught a glimpse of Penn State gear in some shape or form. One thing that is for sure is that pride was showing this weekend inside and out.

Fashion is not just about the clothes you wear -- it’s all in posture, body language, and most of all, confidence! I observed many students with bright smiles while dancing at the intersections. 

This weekend, I witnessed the true definition of fashion; students with confident spirits that were out on a mission to change lives.
