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.
Rompers are a great summer essential. From going to the beach or shopping around town, you can just slip on a romper and you’re good to go! You can dress them up or dress them down. They also make a great swim suit cover up! With this Romper, Fiona paired a light brown leather belt which brought out all of the colors in the romper.

It’s the first day of summer!! Now that the weather is clearing up, it’s time to start wearing those cute summer clothes you’ve been shopping for. We love this orange maxi dress from Nordstrom because it is so comfortable while still being fashionable! The color makes it fun so it is perfect to wear in the summer, while the length makes it appropriate for all sorts of events. All you need to accessorize is a cute belt and some plain colored sandals. If you want to dress it up a little more, try a necklace or some fun earrings!

One of my favorite trends this year is colored shorts! I love how they can really make an outfit pop. They are also really easy to style. You can pair them with so many different things! What I really love about colorful shorts is that they can cover a wide range of styles. They can be edgy, girly, casual, preppy, anything! They are definitely a must-have for the summer.
With some small additions of rips and graded coloring, colored shorts can look very edgy. Paired with a denim shirt or an edgy sweatshirt, you can make colored shorts look super cool. Black vans are simple but still cool and edgy. Converse are a classic street style shoe, and you can dress up your edgy look with a pair of bright heels.
Colored shorts are super cute paired with a loose, flowing tank top. In the summer, you can pair them with a girly crop top or a light shirt and then dress up your look by wearing heels. To get a more relaxed look that is still cute and girly, a pair of pink vans are a great way to go! Simple black flats also give a girly vibe.
In the summer, a casual look is great for the beach or just hanging out with your friends. Colored shorts look great paired with sandals and a simple t-shirt. You can wear a cute graphic tee that is both comfortable and casual. You can make your look more interesting with bejeweled sandals or shoes with a cool detail like feathers or beads. For a more comfortable outfit, Toms are the way to go.
One of my favorite styles has always been preppy. Colored shorts are great paired with a collared shirt, or even a cute sweatshirt with an interesting detail. Oxfords are a classic preppy shoe, so they instantly add that little something to your outfit. Black flats make an outfit cute, but still comfortable. A simple pair of heels will instantly give you a preppy vibe with a collared shirt.

Bright colors are the colors of the summer! They put the pep in your step! 🙂 I love wearing bright colors, they put me in a good mood and they reflect my happiness. The great thing is, you don’t have to be brave or daring to wear bold colors! If you are a little shy, you can add a subtler touch of color with bright accessories, like earrings or bangles, or even just some cute, colorful pumps. If you need just the smallest touch of color in your outfit, you can wear some colorful eyeliner! You can also put color in your hair with a headband or a pretty clip. There are so many fun ways to add color to your outfit, I hope you guys enjoy these tips! 🙂
Bright colors brighten your day and get you in the mood for a beach party! 🙂
