Whether you obtain your style through raiding your parent’s closet,  scrolling through social media, or dropping the hefty designer price, trends today aren’t categorized by one specific style.

Students around VHHS have seen a variety of styles. Students have noticed this and have nominated their peers with having cute, chic, or styles that are authentic to them.

Modern mainstream and influencers have made it clear that the 90s fashion is back. While the 90s had a variety of styles, student Jayne Cronin (12) clearly envelopes the iconic image of the 90s.

Cronin would describe her style as, “diverse, colorful and inexpensive.”

Whether she is rocking her thrifted 1970s Gap jeans, floral halter dress, or comical graphic tees, she dresses authentic to her. Cronin stated that fashion is a gateway to confidence. 

“What I wear influences how I feel during the day. So if I’m a sad girl, I’m gonna dress up a little better just because it makes me feel better about myself,” Cronin remarked.

Cronin’s style is definitely one that stands out within the entire student body and some had joked about how she tries too hard and doesn’t need to dedicate that much time to her outfits. 

“Everybody is like, ‘you’re trying too hard’, this is just me wearing clothes I enjoy,” Cronin said. 

Fashion can be a way of showing one’s personality, and it can be through little things.

For Dana Green, the VHHS Orchestra teacher, his playfulness comes through with one piece of clothing (or should I say a pair): socks. 

You won’t see Green with your typical white socks, nor solid colors for that matter. He loves patterns and mixing them with his formal teaching outfits. He also has specific aspects of style that he prefers.

 The idea of sustainable fashion has gained popularity as people have become more aware about how their clothing impacts the environment and ethical values is something very important to Cronin.

“We, especially as Americans, just waste so much clothing and it just ends up in landfills-which is not good for the environment. So I’d rather reuse clothing than some cheap H&M or Forever 21 stuff,” Cronin said.

“I think you can have a little bit of fun with your socks

and shoes. I think that’s where you add a little hint of color, perhaps showing people that that that you’re not so buttoned down,” Green said.

Green enjoys the fact that socks, and clothing in general, have so many creative liberties and sees his fashion choices as a daily way to express himself.

“I think why not a little splash color? I think that these decisions that we make every single day, you know about what we wear, what we do what we say. Why not make these decisions with a little bit of intention? It’s an opportunity to be creative,” Green stated.
