Safety Fashion for College Women

By Ashley Paskill on October 11, 2017

College is a time of transition for many. It marks a time where students start to focus more on their professional lives and future careers. However, for many women, college can be a time of worrying about being safe on campus, especially with so many reports of robberies and assaults. Many companies have taken women’s safety to mind when it comes to designing fashion products that also function to help women navigate any situation, including college campuses.

1. Siren
Siren is a ring that allows the user to twist the top and activate an alarm that alerts people up to 50 feet away that the user is in danger. It is also meant to confuse and distract the person who may be attacking the woman, scaring him/her off while allowing the user to get help. The alarm is activated within a second of the wearer twisting the top of the ring, which allows the user to turn it off if the situation is resolved.

2. Hülle® Custom Boot Wrap Pockets & Boot Pocket Liners
Hülle® boot wraps and pocket liners are a perfect way to add flair to any pair of boots while also being safe and functional. These wraps can be worn inside or outside of a pair of boots and come with pockets that can fit phones, keys, cash, cards, and whatever else women would carry in their purses. Eliminating the need to carry a purse helps women be safer since the lack of a purse makes it appear to potential robbers that the woman does not have anything to take.

3. Safelet
Safelet is a cute yet functional safety device. The bracelet is equipped with buttons that the wearer pushes to alert a Guardian Network of family and friends that the user is in danger. If the user is in extreme danger, those who are contacted are able to contact emergency personnel within the app. The bracelet can also sync with the wearer’s phone to record audio of the situation.

4.  ROAR
ROAR is a device that is approximately the size of a half dollar coin that sends an alarm to alert those nearby that the user is in danger. The device also syncs to the user’s phone to send out an alert to a network via text and lets the contacts know the location of the user in need. The device can be clipped to a bag or to clothing. It comes in three colors that allows it to be fashionable while promoting user safety.
