Does anyone else feel like the seasons change in State College as fast as you can change your clothes? The walk to class is only getting more bitter and depressing as the once red and orange leaves die and the Willard preacher begins to shiver during his sermons. It’s no secret that Penn State winters are harsh and unforgiving, but that’s no excuse not to look and feel your best. You may be wondering how you’re supposed to stay chipper and trendy despite these drastic conditions, but we’ve got a trick that not only make you look and feel good, but will put a pep in your step. Ever thought of matching your outfit to your playlist?
Matching your outfit to the soundtrack of your daily tasks can make them feel less mundane and arbitrary. This serves as the ultimate personal vibe check. Strutting in an outfit with a matching soundtrack can make you feel like the main character everywhere you go. If you wear headphones on your head, (or can borrow from your frat DJ sneaky link), they can double as ear muffs! Don’t worry. VALLEY is providing you with the outfit inspiration and the playlists so you never get bored with your look or sound.
