Sophomore Sofia Campagnuolo shows off her new flare leggings she got for Christmas.
“I wear them a lot, and I have a lot of different pairs,” she said.
Campagnuolo said she likes the versatility of the leggings.
“I love how they are always a great fit and if you want to be comfy but can’t be in sweatpants they’re a great choice,” she said. “The material is soft and they don’t bunch up as the day goes on and they never slide down.”
Campagnuolo said she wasn’t pleased with some of the other items she received.
“I got some really ugly things,” she said, “but I’ve returned most of them.”

“A lot of people laughed and this one girl thought they were terrible,” he said.
