Like Taylor Swift, Lutes should never be out of style, so stocking up on pieces that follow this year’s fall fashion trends is essential. Get ready to look fabulous at every lunch, class and lab throughout the week.
With the start of a new school year, fashion choices are very important to how a student presents his or herself on campus. Many aspire to look their best as they meet their professors and classmates. It is entirely too early to start wearing sweatpants to every class, so following this fall’s new fashion trends is the perfect way to make the most of one’s closet.
In the Pacific Northwest especially, there are three key aspects to being fashionable and wearing trends that are currently in: color, texture and statements.

Color:

IMG_8952While walking anywhere in the city of Tacoma, one will see a trend of color. Black, white and grey are classic color trends that will always be in. This season, however, exchange some of these hues with colors like burgundy, mustard and fatigue green.

These colors can be mixed with the neutral blacks and whites, but can also be fashioned with warmer colors. Fall, after all, is the season of deep colors and warm contrasts. Many aspire to look their best as they meet their professors and classmates. It is entirely too early to start wearing sweatpants to every class, so following this fall’s new fashion trends is the perfect way to make the most of one’s closet.

In the Pacific Northwest especially, there are three key aspects to being fashionable and wearing trends that are currently in: color, texture and statements.

Statements:

IMG_8870Statement items to look for this season are over-sized scarves (they’re not just for covering hickies), statement necklaces and sweaters. Black jeans are also a classic look that won’t being going out of style anytime soon, and will therefore be an excellent fashion investment.

Adding a chunky statement necklace and a sweater to a little black dress will make the fashion statement stand out, and further draw the eyes of an audience.

Adding a large statement item or warm vibrant color draws the eye to the outfit, the person, and the personal statement. Elaborate your weekend apparel or Monday morning outfit by taking a simple statement like a little black dress or ripped black jeans and adding more.

Text/Layers:

In addition to warm colors, adding texture and layers to looks is what fashion icons like Olivia Palermo, Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner are illustrating this Fall. Layers add more depth to outfits and are able to bring the style to a whole new level.

Back to school is more than syllabus week. It’s experimenting with fall trends, developing your style and being the most trendy students on campus. Will you go back to sweatpants or will you be fashion forward this fall?
