Autumn is finally here! Pumpkin spice is filling the air, the sound of crunching leaves can be heard all around campus, and everyone is pulling out their cozy sherpas, plaid shackets, and ribbed shrugs… Or are they? Fall is often haunted by the same fashion trends each year, but if you’re eager for some new looks, read on.

Outfit 1:

Layering is a necessity for the fall. As the weather starts to get cooler, put a graphic tee over a bright mock neck for a good transition outfit. Bonus points if your shirt is about PSLs! On the bottom, wear a pair of boyfriend jeans to contrast the tighter top. Then, throw on a pair of good ole black booties to tie it all together. If you’re looking for some accessories to complement your look, add a belt and a claw clip.

Outfit 2:

Plaid is always acceptable at this time of year, so embrace it, but maybe spice it up a little. Plaid sweaters bring more excitement and can add a lot to an outfit. Tuck the sweater into a pair of skinny jeans, and top it off with a belt for another layer. If you’re wanting a little more flavor, put on some heeled white booties for extra height and a confidence boost. Gold hoops can also bring some warmth to the outfit.

Outfit 3:

As it gets even colder and we start to head into winter (hopefully not anytime soon), layering two sweaters can be a great transition piece. You get some added warmth and a more interesting outfit! A turtleneck can be put under any sweater but is best under a UNW one and instantly gives it a fun twist. Distressed jeans bring more texture into the look, and pink shoes provide a pop of color! Accessorizing with a claw clip is also never a bad idea.

Outfit 4:

Good news: You do not need to pack away your favorite summer dress for the fall. I have the solution: layering! Just put a turtleneck under any cami dress, and it’s warm enough to wear in the colder weather. In winter, you can also add some warm tights or leggings and wear dresses all year long. Heeled booties bring the outfit to the next level as well.

Outfit 5:

The only way to make business casual pants better is by making them plaid. These pants are a staple for any wardrobe because they can be dressed up or down. Throwing a simple black sweater on top and tucking it in with a belt is a great way to dress them down for the fall. Gold, decorative bobby pins are great accessories for simpler outfits like this one, and colored shoes give it a bit of a kick. Pun intended 🙂

Outfit 6:

Not only are they extremely comfortable, but waffle knit shirts are also very easy to style because they go with everything. Orange or red shirts are especially great for the fall, and you can easily match them with a pair of black skinny jeans. Gold hoops and black booties come through again for this outfit and really pull it together. You can also never go wrong with a messy bun in autumn.

Outfit 7:

If you’re a monochromatic lover, then a black and white striped mock neck is the shirt for you. It can spice up a pair of black paper bag pants so that there’s not too much black, while still maintaining the monochrome look. White shoes make the outfit classy and a white beanie brings the autumn aspect.

Outfit 8:

A white sweater is a great staple for the colder seasons, but it can be hard to know how to style it without it being boring. Pairing it with a plaid (I know, I know, more plaid) skirt can make it much more interesting and, in the words of Cher from Clueless, “less ensembly challenged.” A Clueless-style skirt deserves nothing less than some boots, and you could even add some knee-high socks.

Outfit 9 :

Corduroy skirts are probably the biggest fall fashion necessity after plaid. A red skirt can be topped with a patterned, oversized sweater to create a look perfect for a Thanksgiving celebration or any other autumn day. A black belt and black shoes are perfect complements for this colorful outfit.
