Here in Williamsburg, the chill of fall is finally in the air. You actually have to wear a jacket in the mornings and evenings. You can see the steam coming off your morning cup of coffee as you trek to your 8 AM. While this means that we are just about halfway through the semester, it also means that it is time to break out the best of fall fashion. Here are some key pieces to keep you looking trendy on campus!
1. Riding Boots
They are insanely comfortable to wear around campus and they make everything look dressy, even if you are just rocking a classic jeans and tee combo.
2. Patterned scarf
It’s not time to break out the knitwear yet, but it is time to invest in a simple scarf to keep you warm in the mornings but cool in the afternoon. Try picking one in a fun pattern that reflects your personality.
This summer’s hottest jewelry trend is continuing into fall. Try making is seasonally appropriate, and incorporate textures such as velvet or lace.
4. Cold Shoulder
This applies to dresses and tops. It’s a great way to show off what’s left of your summer tan, while also dressing for the fluctuating temperatures. It’s a trend to rock in early fall since it can be difficult to cover exposed arms as it gets colder.
5. Bright Colors
Pink and Yellow specifically! Whether you go bold, neon, or pastel, try to incorporate bright pops of color with your jeans or classic dress. Or, if you’re feeling bold, mix the colors together.
Yes you read that right! According to Elle magazine, hoodies are on trend for fall 2016. So break out your hoodie on that morning when you are just too tired to dress to the nines.
7. Nail Polish
If you want to make a small fashion statement try mixing up your nail polish. Bold colors are in this fall, specifically mustard yellow, burgundy, deep orange, and navy blue.
