Biker shorts are all the rage and for a good reason. They are the short version of leggings. You can style them the same as leggings, but when it’s a little too warm for leggings. They can be paired with everything from graphic tees, sweaters, cardigans, crop tops, and jackets.

Patterned or colored pants are the perfect pieces as we head into fall. Camouflage is on trend for this fall and gives a casual touch to any outfit. This outfit can be paired with a range of tops and fun sneakers! The camouflage pattern is also appearing in tons of cold-shoulder tops, long sleeves, and sweaters. In other words, camouflage is in!
