Confession: Sometimes I pay more attention to other girls’ outfits than to what my professor is saying. What can I say? I’m obsessed with fashion and clothes. If you’re like me, then you also love to rock a cute outfit for class, with the exception of those early 8 am-ers when yoga pants are a must.
This fall, don’t be surprised when you see red jeans, leather jackets and lots and lots of studs – my new favorite trend of the season.
Here are five key pieces you can rock this semester:
Off-the-shoulder sweater, American Eagle, $49
This fall, your first campus essential is a simple and comfortable knit top. Sweaters are warm and cozy, not to mention sexy/cute if they fall off the shoulders. This American Eagle sweater comes in oatmeal, light pink and charcoal. You can wear it alone or with a collared shirt underneath. Since the look is so simple feel free to add a few long necklaces.
Studded smoking slippers, Spring, $45
Comfy but stylish shoes for long walks to class are a must. These studded flats come in black and navy, and will go with any outfit, whether you’re rocking jeans or a cute dress. The studded details give the shoes a fun and spunky edge.
Crocheted knit scarf, Forever 21, $10
A knit scarf is the perfect fall accessory, plus it protects you from those brisk winds. This crocheted scarf comes in mustard, giving your outfit a pop of color.
SPLURGE: Leather jacket, Nordstrom, $410
Dressing for fall weather can be difficult. But this leather jacket is perfect for those days that are too cold for just a sweater and still too warm for a winter coat. This pick is a splurge, but a good leather jacket will last you years!
Coloured denim, Material Girl, $30
I’m sick of wearing the same old black, gray or denim coloured pants so I’m ecstatic about bright-coloured denim. These Material Girl jeans come in bright red, perfect for fall.
What not to wear to class:
1. Anything that you’d wear to a club. [fyeah-forever-young]
2. PJs (even if they’re ADORKABLE). [meowgon]
3. Running shoes/crocs/flip flops to class. [mountaindewlovahhh13]
