There’s a moment in The Big Lebowski where The Dude is relaxing on his rug, eyes closed, as his Walkman plays the soothing sounds of… the 1987 Venice Beach Bowling League playoffs. Strangely enough, I can identify. Some of my clearest early memories are backdropped by that distinctively resonant rattle of colliding pins.

Style File: Tucson

Here in Tucson, it has finally gotten cool enough to break out those heavier pieces! Most Tucsonans dress in light layers that can easily be removed as the day goes on. On the days that are really chilly, there’s nothing like getting cozy with a good book and a soft sweater at the local resale bookstore, Bookman’s.

Winter Fashion

Winter essentials and Chi-fashionistas are partners in crime in battling the weather in Chiberia, but still maintain swag. Chicagoans are topping off their outfits with jackets that have texture, prints, and shape. Slouchy beanies, black brim bowler hats, and turbans are flooding the streets and keeping caps warm during the commute. Socks are another essential that add more to the outfit. They are seen to be worn scrunched over the pants or paired with tights for the ladies. Men are stocked up with socks with cool designs that peek out when wearing shorter length pants. An all-black outfit is a trend always for guys and girls, it goes with everything! Check out the snaps to see Chi street style in action.

It is such a great question with so many possible answers. So, while I won’t be getting into Wake Forest myself, I think I’ll give a try at answering the question.
