As the temperatures begin to drop, it is time for fall fashion to pop across our campus.. Fall fashion is a happy medium between dressing weather-appropriate and dressing fashionably. Students, put away your short shorts, tank tops, and flip flops, to make way for comfortable cardigans, chucky scarves, and cozy boots. It seems as though on our campus, comfort and trends mesh together to make a unique blend of autumnal style. This fall season proves to be no different, as a wide array of trends sweep across campus like leaves on a crisp October day.
Faux Leather, and Leather Jackets: From camel-colored, to black, and everywhere in between, these jackets are a fashionable alternative that is sure to amplify (improve?) any outfit. Faux leather jackets have the ability to give a comfortable, plain outfit a put together-without- even- trying feel. Simply throw on a brown Faux-Leather Moto Jacket from Old Navy ($49.94) or a Michael Kors leather jacket in the color gunmetal from Macy’s ($495.00) and you cannot go wrong. “Faux leather jackets are my must-have fashion trend this season because they are comfortable and convenient while still being stylish. I do not have hours in the morning to decide on an outfit so a leather jacket is the perfect way to go,” said senior Radiology Technology major Denise F.
Chunky Knit, Oversized Sweaters:are always an extremely weather-appropriate option for this time of year. Sweaters are the perfect way to stay warm, and look chic at the same time. Opt for a grey cowl neck sweater from Gap ($39.99) or a charcoal-colored JAMISON cable sweater from Bloomingdale’s ($215.00) to complete this look. “My favorite outfit is a big sweater, leggings, and riding boots. It is comfortable, effortless, and cute on a chilly fall day,” Public Relations major Meredith Minksy exclaimed.
Brightly Colored Denim:Available in hues such as mint green and magenta, colored denim provides a pop of color to any outfit. Use this trend as a way to introduce some life and vibrancy into fall weather or match the colors of the changing leaves. Broadcasting major Sarah Farsijany said, “These jeans are fun, funky, and easy to wear.” Pop into your local Forever 21 and check out magenta skinny ankle jeans ($24.90) or bright purple J Brand 811 mid-rise skinny leg denim ($176.00) to incorporate this hip trend into your new fall wardrobe.
Boots: Whether you choose to don a pair of your trusty Uggs, or take a walk on the wild side with a pair of motorcycle boots, this trend is very versatile, yet classic at the same time. Slip into a fresh pair of boots to complete an outfit, or even add some edge to your look. Rock a pair of black Mossimo boots from Target ($34.99) or knee-high western style Frye Boots ($328.00) to represent your inner rebel.
Every season, new and exciting trends resonate through our consciousness. As always, it is important to adapt these trends to work for you. They have to work with your personal style, your budget, and your personality. There is no right or wrong when it comes to fashion and style. Like Coco Chanel once said, “Fashion fades, only style remains.”
