How to Achieve a Trendy, Head-to-Toe Fall Look

In terms of fashion, fall is the most important season. Not only are trends constantly stepping off the catwalk, but debut holiday collections and versatile autumn weather lead to innovative outfit combos and new street style looks. College Fashion Week 2017 set the bar high for ultimate fall style, so read below for our tips on how to achieve a head-to-toe look that’s totally on trend.  


Just because it’s fall doesn’t mean that beachy summer waves are out. Bed Head by TIGI kept this trend alive at College Fashion Week 2017, and as expected, it completely slayed. Get your own version of the look using the Curlipops Styling Iron and Headrush, then finish by keeping your locks in place with Masterpiece Shine Hairspray.

We highly recommend trying this style on the go, especially for the next adventure you take while traveling with StudentUniverse! Beach waves will ~never~ fail you.

Another signature ‘do that stepped off the runway was sleeked-back hair. This high-fashion style works best with a middle part, and you can easily copy the look by using After-Party to slick your locks flat. Finish by tying your hair back in a high ponytail for complete catwalk glam.


At College Fashion Week 2017, Ulta Beauty brought out the best of the best in trending makeup. The first trend you’ll want to try is bold brows offset by shimmery eyes. Get this look using any of the shadows in the Tarte Dream Big Eyeshadow Palette, and by shading in your brows with the IT Cosmetics Brow Power Eyebrow Pencil. Ready, set, beautiful!

Another of the season’s top makeup trends is soft winter lips. Our runway models rocked a rose-hued Je Ne Sais Quoi Lip Treatment by IT Cosmetics for a gorgeous, understated lip color. You’ll definitely want to bring this to your campus!

Finally, don’t forget to pair your fall-fabulous makeup with a can of Spindrift Sparkling Water. This gorgeous drink made with real fruit is the best midday lunch accessory.


Primark debuted next-level lewks at College Fashion Week 2017, and by far our favorite upcoming trend is non-traditional denim. We’re talking embroidered denim jackets and jeans, patchwork denim, ruffle hems and more. We are so here for this. Just don’t forget your ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses while you shop––the better to see all these amazing styles with!

Our models also tore up with runway with chic velvet boots, so do yourself a favor and buy a pair ASAP. Your campus won’t know what hit it when you strut around in this trending boot this season. Want more like this look? Download the Lust Have app for ALL the fashion inspo.
