[Sept. 2016 Arts] Fall welcomes warmer trends: what’s hot this season

By Channing Smith ’17 Creative Chief

The hearts of students everywhere begin to break as the leaves change and temperatures cool, causing them to shed their denim shorts, tank tops, and other summer fashions. However, the fall season offers new opportunities for layering, boots and so much more. Get a head start with these top five fall trends.


The cold shoulder


Though this trend might fade as the weather cools down, enjoy it while you can. In a time where trends are overwhelmingly grunge- including distressed denim, flannels, and chokers- off the shoulder tops are refreshingly classic and graceful. The style offers a more feminine look, channeling a bohemian feel, inspired by sixties styles.


Patched up


Any item can be made completely your own when decorated with colorful pins and patches. Add a pop of color to your denim jacket, or make a statement on your backpack. These accessories can demonstrate political interest, a favorite band, or just a fun, animated design. The best pins and patches are not found in big name brand stores; instead, look for unique and vintage ones in small boutiques or stands.


Denim dream


The early 00s style is back and revamped. Offering a soft vintage look, a jean skirt is easily paired with your favorite t-shirt, but gives off the vibe that you got it all together. This item can be dressed up for an interview, or dressed down for school.


Reporting for duty
They’ve been worn by soldiers on the frontline, but now it’s your turn. Popular denim brands are rolling out new versions of the cargo pant- a comfortable alternative to jeans that gives off an authentic, rustic feel. Coming in shades ranging from deep army green, to classic khaki, to muted grays and navy, the colors and relaxed style of the pant are perfect for fall.
