With the first official week of fall coming to an end, let’s discuss some of the fall trends that have emerged on campus so far.

Clothing trends:

Flared leggings/yoga pants

Whichever side of the pendulum you fall on when it comes to how you refer to these pants, there is no denying they are not only comfortable but trendy for fall 2023. They are perfect for working out, going to class or lounging at home watching your favorite fall movies. Check out the link above for a durable and trendy pair of yoga pants to add to your wardrobe!

Matching sets

Whether it’s a matching workout set or a lounge set, this is the perfect way to create easy yet polished outfits. Matching sets have established their spot in every college girl’s wardrobe. 

The Matilda Djerf Style

Matilda Djerf has perfected the business casual look, which is especially trendy for fall. I see outfits all over campus that are reflections of this trend. 

accessory trends:

Over-the-ear headphones

The re-emergence of over-the-ear headphones has the Ohio State campus in a chokehold recently. Some of the most popular ones I have seen are Apple’s Airpod Maxes or the Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones.

platform shoes

Platform shoes are all the rage on Ohio State’s campus. These shoes can be spotted in a variety of different styles, including platform Uggs, platform Converse and platform boots.

north face backpack

If there is one front-runner for the most popular bag on campus for fall 2023, it is the North Face backpack. Loved for its durability, aesthetic and size, it is the perfect bag for college students.
