With Walpole High’s early start time, it can be a struggle to get ready in the morning. For many female students, that means that comfortable clothing is essential to getting out the door and surviving the school day. Athletic wear and outerwear are unmissable trends in Walpole’s halls.

Yoga pants, hoodies and Nike sneakers are hallmarks of sporty outfits, which have been a constant for years. One thing has changed, though: girls are forgoing Victoria’s Secret yoga pants, the traditional go-to brand, for newcomer Lululemon, which has taken over the yoga pants scene with its line of stylish and highly-coveted athletic wear.

“I like Lululemon leggings because they are good leggings to run and workout in but also leggings that I can wear to school,” said sophomore Christine Murray.

The cold weather brings another trend, too: sweatshirts, sweatpants and other athletic wear. Not only do these clothing items provide comfort, but they allow student-athletes to go straight from school to their sport without the hassle of changing.

Senior Tori Lynch said, “It’s easier to just wear track clothes to school so I don’t have to change, and wearing comfortable clothes helps me make it through the day.”

In addition to wearing their athletic wear to school, girls admit that their style is influenced by their mood, the amount of tests they have and whom they are going to see that day.

Sophomore Amanda Janowicz said, “I’m usually too lazy or too tired to take the time to find nice clothes, especially if I have a bunch of tests or just got back from an early morning practice.”

While comfort began as a way for girls to get ready more quickly in the morning, it has become the most prominent trend at Walpole High. Quality athletic brands such as Nike and Lululemon transform simple, sporty outfits into something more fashionable. These casual outfits fit in just fine, as comfort is key at Walpole High.
