The seasons are finally changing in Colorado, and with autumn come cooler days paired with pumpkin spice lattes and, in my opinion, the most exciting time for fashion.
Fall fashion is the most versatile among the four seasons due to both the fluctuating weather in Colorado and the array of colors and articles of clothing that are trending around this time. Here are some ways to stay stylish while still feeling comfortable for your 8 a.m. classes this season.
Floral blouses, dresses, skirts, etc. with autumn colors are perfect for this time of year. This outfit is easy to put together and is also a great way to join in on the celebration of fall without compromising yourself on the hotter days left lingering in the season.
Tip: Pair your fall florals with a pair of tights and a denim jacket for the cooler days.
Monochrome outfits are another easy way to style yourself this season. Gray-on-gray is the example shown above, but the possibilities are endless if you have different shades of one color for pants and shirts. This style is super versatile, cheap to come by for college students and can be altered and accessorized endlessly.
Tip: Pair this outfit with sheer tights and a leather jacket to make it even more seasonal.
Plaid and flannel
The old reliable for fall weather: plaid and flannel. The possibilities are endless with these fabrics in the fall: plaid skirts with black sweaters, simple dresses paired with a flannel, plaid pants with crop tops — the list goes on. This style is incredibly easy to come by, and these fabrics can be recycled over and over into new outfits for the whole season, making it cost-effective for students. Flannels are also extremely comfortable for cooler weather.
Even if the above outfits aren’t in your closet, oversized sweaters can never do wrong in the fall, and they can be paired with just about anything from skirts to flared jeans. Vintage fashion is also trending for all seasons, so wearing that ’80s jean jacket from your parent’s closet is always a safe and stylish option.
No matter what you choose to wear this fall, being comfortable and confident is always the most important, so take these fun fall fashion ideas and perhaps alter them to make them your own. Happy styling!
