5 Must Have Pieces for this SoCal Swinter

Whether you’re a Southern California native or you’re experiencing your first UCSB Swinter (summer+winter because let’s be honest, it’s not a real winter), you know that temperatures don’t usually dip below the 60s. Here are five pieces to help you stay moderately warm and on trend this winter quarter.

1) Teddy Bear Jacket, Zaful, $29.99

Everyone is jumping on the “Teddy Bear Jacket” trend. This jacket is everything you need: fluffy, soft, and fashionable.

2) Furry Birkenstock, Birkenstock, $145.00

Birkenstocks are a must have staple of UCSB fashion. Keep your toes warm while staying with the trend with these furry birkenstocks you can only get away with in sunny California.

3) Oversized Denim Jacket, Asos, $54.00

A denim jacket is something everyone should have in the basics section of their closet. Try out the recent trend of an oversized, boyfriend style denim jacket. Pair it with a cute pair of leggings and you can rock the “lazy-chic” style.

4) Long Sleeve Layering, Brandy Melville, $23.00

Two layers will (almost) always suffice to get you through a day at UCSB. This long sleeve layering top is perfect under your oversized denim jacket for when you walk to your 8 AM and great as your main top when the sun finally shines through.

5) Ripped Mom Jeans, Urban Outfitters, $64.00

Mom jeans are back in style and currently one of the biggest trends on campus and off. Try adding some rips for breathing room when that harsh winter sun hits.


Try some of these pieces to update your winter wardrobe, and keep yourself comfy and on trend this winter quarter!
