Welcome to the Globe’s SLCC Talks. A new column where the Globe staff answers questions that our readers send in as well as highlights some of our favorite responses.
In this edition of SLCC Talks, fellow student Keith Chalmers inquires about our tastes in summer fashion.
As summer turns into fall and fall into winter people in Utah get to completely change their style of clothing. What are the styles that you hate to ditch as the weather gets colder and the styles you have missed wearing under a scorching summer sun?

While I don’t necessarily favor the summer or winter fashions, I usually have a few outfits that I like to wear during the fall. One thing I look forward to wearing is my trench coat. It has so many pockets; it’s like a backpack you can wear. On top of that, it allows me to get into the “film noir” mode complete with internal monologues and poetic analogic similes. All that’s missing is the scarlet-clad femme fatale that likes to dance along the lines of good and evil under the harsh light of an autumnal full moon.

I’m a personal fan of wearing shorts and a lack of layer when it comes to shirts. Nothing feels better than riding a bike in some shorts whenever I go downtown. As winter starts to settle, I have to wear more layers to keep warm which brings the hassle of having to adjust what I wear whenever I go in and out of a building. The simplicity of summer is something I feel that we take for granted. On that note, summer is an excellent time to wear that shirt with your favorite band or TV show as it’s just out there, not covered by hoodies and jackets.
Also, be sure to let us know what summer fashions you don’t want to see go away.
