NCU fashion watch: Makenna and Caleb

Cold weather street style

Winter arrived late this year, but there is no denying the bite the air now holds. This makes it an incredible time to play around with your wardrobe. We are not far enough from fall to tuck those light pieces away, but being so close to winter, throw some of those chunky pieces in the mix!

Makenna Heitman and Caleb Cruse are great examples of North Central students who are taking advantage of the weather in its interesting stage. Both bring a street style look to the spotlight.
