December is here now, and 2018 is coming to an end. As Hanyang University greets the cold winter with beautiful lighting near the lion statue and the sign that reads: “THE BEST FOR A BETTER WORLD” in front of the Administration Building (History Museum), the coming of winter and vacation is reminded to all. Students on the Seoul and Erica campuses have also been facing the chilly winter weather lately, dressing up suitably in various fashionable ways that define themselves.
 

Seoul Campus
 
 
Kang Ji-min (Division of International Studies, 1st year) is wearing a DIS 'dobba' (topper coat).

Kang Ji-min (Division of International Studies, 1st year) pursued a warm, yet comfortable style wearing a ‘dobba’ (topper coat), which is arguably the representative clothing piece for Korean university students in winter. Widely known as ‘dobba’ or ‘long padding’ in Korea, it has the symbol of the university and the student's major in needlework on the back of the clothing.
 
Fashionable styling that Xuying (Department of Media Communication, 2nd year) made on her own stood out even from a distance away. 

Xuying (Department of Media Communication, 2nd year) wore what she calls a warm and comfortable clothing for class time. She wore a light khaki short padding as an outer and a pair of edge split pants (pants with splits in the bottom) with eye-catching red and white stripes.
 
Having a big interest in fashion, Kim Yoon-sub (School of Nursing, 4th year) purchased the striking shoes from Converse when they collaborated with a Japanese brand from overseas.

Kim Yoon-sub (School of Nursing, 4th year) dressed down in dark overall outfits but spiced up the look with vibrant yellow shoes. “I usually wear this turquoise knit sweater on formal occasions, but I thought it would be cool to wear it casually by layering it on top of a grey shirt.” 
 

ERICA Campus

 
The ROTC uniform must be worn without any extra outer clothing even in winter. Yoo Jin-hwan (Department of Bionano Engineering, 3rd year)

Both on the Seoul and ERICA campuses, it is easy to catch sight of people wearing suits with matching hats and holding suit cases. Despite the chilly weather, Yoo Jin-hwan (Department of Bionano Engineering, 3rd year) wore an ROTC uniform to school. “We wear our uniform twice a week when we have lectures on military science. We also wear the uniform on special occasions such as the welcome party for the freshmen, the national salute (lined up soldiers welcome the audience by holding a sword above their heads), and when a special lecture on the security of North Korea is held.”
 
“I like to mix-match my outfit. I prefer a layered look rather than wearing a single piece of clothing.” Kim Na-hee (Department of Sports and Well-being, major in Sports in Life, 4th year)

Kim Na-hee (Division of Sports and Well-being, major in Sports in Life, 4th year) rocked a style that gives the vibe of both fall and winter. She layered two seperate skirts of different materials, increasing the aesthetic style of fashion. Her fashion tip is to choose a piece of clothing or accessory that you would like to wear that day, and build on the look with other items including shoes and bags.
 
“I try to remember the fashionable style that a passerby wore on the street or search around shopping malls on the web for my inspiration on stylings.” Park Hong-seok (Department of Applied Physics, 3rd year)

Park Hong-seok (Department of Applied Physics, 3rd year) canceled out the monotonous feel of the black t-shirt that he wore by slipping on a brown cardigan. He wore blue jeans and white sneakers that pair well with the jeans.
 
There is a famous saying by the fashion stylist and designer Rachel Zoe that goes, “style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.” The colorful styles that students in Hanyang University rock on a daily basis show the diverse and independent ways that each and every student chooses to walk in every day. A big encouragement to the students’ unique individuality in life and in their sense of fashion.
