Fall Fashion Favorites

Fall Fashion Favorites

Fall is quickly approaching, inevitably accompanied by its seasonal fashion. Fall fashion often includes warm tones, plaid patterns, and edgy outerwear.

Flannels have proven to be a huge trend this fall because they can be worn in multiple ways. For example, tying a flannel around your waste will help you in achieving a more casual appearance. Although effortless, this will add a sense of edginess to your look.

A flannel can also be worn open, much like a cardigan. Not only will this keep you warm in chilly classrooms during class, but it will also determine the ambience of your outfit. For example, wearing a more formfitting flannel with skinny jeans and flats radiates a preppy look. In contrast, an oversized flannel including dark hues paired with boyfriend jeans and high-top sneakers broadcasts a grungy approach.

“When I don’t know what to wear, I always resort to a flannel because it makes it look like I put a lot of effort and thought into my outfit,” Junior Samantha Schneid said. “In reality, i’m just wearing it to mask my lack of motivation to put an outfit together.”

Another popular trend this fall is fashion forward backpacks. Many celebrities such as Kylie Jenner, Jennifer Lawrence, Taylor Swift and more have been sporting the trendy yet convenient look.

Many backpacks which are suitable for fall include elements of fringe and leather. When the two are put together, they balance each other out as the fringe provides a soft touch the hard leather. These two elements come together to create an edgy yet ladylike backpack.

The back pack is not only fashionable, but is also practical.

“ I bought a really cute fringe backpack a week ago and I haven’t used a different bag since,” Junior Julia Sherman said. “Its great because it allows me to get my errands done without having to compromise my style.”

Leather skater skirts have also been a fashion favorite this fall. The femininity of the skirt yet the roughness of the leather make for a fashionable yet mature staple piece.

Leather skater skirts are perfect for any occasion as they can be dressed up or dressed down. On a casual day, a leather skater skirt, crop top, and  pair of espadrilles make for the perfect outfit. The outfit can transition from day to night by adding a pair of booties and a leather jacket.

Whether you’re hustling in the city, or just attending another day of school at Marjory Stoneman Douglas, incorporating fall fashion into your look is achievable no matter what the event may be.
