Bruins have been more disconnected this year than ever before because of COVID-19, however one way teens are staying connected is through social media and keeping up with the latest trends.

Students first shared their thoughts on their favorite fashion trends this year and which ones they hope will make a comeback.

“One trend that most people don’t like are turtlenecks but I feel like they should come back because if you know how to style it right it could look really good,” said Junior Yerasette Robles-Lara.

Dayanara Moreno Jurado, a junior, explained some of her favorite fall colors. “The colors envy green and baby blue are a staple for outfits this fall which I’m really happy about because I look great in both,” she said. “I have two trends that I would love to come back this season; headbands, which were very popular in the 90’s and 2000’s, and I personally just think that they a great addition to an outfit, and cardigans because they look great on everyone. Although this piece of clothing is making a small comeback, I’d love for it to become more popular.” 

Sophomore Sarah DeSart explained her favorite clothing and hairstyles she hopes to see more of this fall. 

“My favorite fall trend is when people wear collared shirts underneath sweatshirts so that the collar is peeking through at the top,” she said. “And a trend I would bring back from the past is 50’s and 60’s hairstyles.”

Along with fashion, students relate to other types of trends. Whether it be walking in the halls at school or through the grocery store, you can hear people quoting popular TikToks or singing trending songs. Bruins talked about their favorite trends on the app as well as it’s helpfulness with keeping teens in touch with what’s going on in the world.

Freshman Aleayah Briscoe said, “I think everyone can agree that TikTok is the most popular app right now and it’s not surprising, I mean, it’s definitely my favorite,” she said. “Learning the dances and sending funny videos to my friends is probably my favorite part about [TikTok].”

Others notice that it has become an important source to learn about the world, politics, and how so many people our age deal with the same things.

“TikTok is an outlet for so many people to get information and share how they feel and I think it has been a really positive thing throughout these hard times,” said Moreno. “Sometimes, though, you have to be careful about the news you choose to follow or believe because there is just as much false information on there as there is true. So many people our age are involved in politics and they find the issues of today’s world interesting and feel so personally about them and I love that. Social media is really good in that way if you know how to find the right info.”

As a final thought Briscoe talked about the fall season and what she hopes for in the winter.

“I wish it would have gotten colder earlier than November but hopefully we’ll still have a nice cold winter,” she said. “I mean you can’t really be mad at 2020, it did give us quite an entertaining election…but I still ain’t seen two pretty best friends.”
