The 80’s are back

      The 80’s was an amazing time for fashion. Girls had their cute outfits, hair in ponytails with scrunchies, and converse, and the guys had skinny jeans with button down shirts. Colors were key when dressing in the morning and everyone knew it. You had to wear bright clothes to fit in with all the other girls and you had to have your skinny jeans to be considered “cool”,    unfortunately, these 80”s trends slipped away, but now a days the 80’s fashion is rising back to the top.

   

    For example, Scrunchies. The trend has become really big lately and almost every store sells them. They can range from $1 all the way up to $15 and possibly even more. Scrunchies now aren’t as elaborate as back then but they for sure are making a come back.

     

     Another trend coming back into style is Converse. People enjoy Converse because you can wear them with literally everything. They come in White, Black, Grey, Red, Purple, the whole rainbow and now, people wear patterned ones too. You can rock converse wherever you go.

 

    For some guys, skinny jeans are the new and cool thing. They wear their skinny jeans with tight button down shirts and some name brand shoes like Sperry”s or Vans.

 

    All in all we might look back at the 80’s and say “I like their style!” Scrunchies, Converse, and Skinny Jeans are rising up to the occasion once again. Thanks you, 80’s!

Yearbook at Chicago

Journalism students traveled out of state November 1st to the 4th, at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago to ascertain new ideas for the yearbook.

Almost a dozen of the writers in the Yearbook staff will be attending in order to gain new skills, better themselves, and learn concepts for their future works. Expecting to experience a great time at what is one of the biggest yearbook conventions in the region, junior Editor in Chief of the Savrola magazine Grace Brigance gives her eager input.

“They had me at, ‘we’re going to Chicago,’” Brigance said. “I want to expose myself to people who can help me with my writing and meet new people that are at the convention. It’ll be fun to go with the girls in yearbook because it’ll give us a chance to bond , because I’m new this year.”

In addition to the new companions and acquaintances they’ll be given, connections are also a bridge to learning off of their peers’ works from other schools.

“It’ll be interesting to meet people from other schools, and seeing other people’s books, getting ideas from them to help make our book better each year,” Brigance said.
