I know none of us want to, but pretty soon it’s going to be time to start thinking about fall. Back to school shopping, colder weather (unfortunately!), and the daunting thought of schoolwork. Going back to school can be a stressful process, especially if you’re starting a new school. Some people want to change their style; others just want a few updates to their wardrobe. These styles below are a sneak preview of the kinds of things my friends and I are going to be wearing this school year!
Baggy, Knitted Sweaters
A huge trend for this fall is baggy and knitted sweaters. The shape of these tops goes perfectly paired with skinny jeans, shorts, and even skirts. They are one of my favorite fall essentials because they can be paired with so many different things. Not only are they cute, they’re also comfy! Even if you don’t feel like dressing up that day, you can still look cute and be comfortable. A great way to style them is with colored or printed jeans/shorts. A basic, neutral colored knit will go great with a crazy pattern. Or you can pair a more colorful sweater with patterned pants for a more dramatic look.
Collared shirts are definitely a must-have for the coming fall season. They look great under knit sweaters or just on their own. Some collared shirts have details on the collar. These details can include studs, beads, sequins, etc. I love collared shirts because you can pair them with so many things and they still look great. They will give you that effortlessly stylish vibe.
I love colored jeans! They add so much fun to every outfit. You can pair them with almost anything. They are the perfect thing to add a pop of color to a plain shirt. You can wear a neutral colored shirt with a bright pair of jeans, or you can add even more color by trying color blocking, which is when you wear a colorful shirt with a colorful pair of jeans. When you do this, find two colors that complement each other well, and try to find a solid colored shirt because a patterned shirt can be overwhelming on bright jeans. I also love patterned jeans. Floral is the most common pattern for jeans. Pair them with a solid color top and minimal accessories, as these jeans are the statement piece in your outfit.
Boots have always been a popular fall trend. Whether you like the classic equestrian style or a more edgy biker boot, there is a style for almost everyone. I personally like both the equestrian, and biker boot style. A classic pair of riding boots can add a cute, classic vibe to any outfit, while an edgier pair of boots can give you a fiercer look. Equestrian style boots look great paired with skinny jeans and an oversized knit sweater. Biker boots look great with skinny jeans, or a cute skirt and an edgy top.
