6 Campus fashion trends you shouldn’t miss

After assessing what’s new for fall, we have the six style trends you can’t be caught on campus without.

Who doesn’t like to be the first to know about something? Come on, you know you love telling your friends what’s new at the theater or which band you should see tonight. So don’t start the school year without catching up on the latest fashion trends. Be one step ahead of the gang by pulling off these six amazing style looks this fall. They’ll love you for it — and maybe be just a bit jealous.



Carly Rae Jepsen

This color may have been out for a while, but its scene is far from over. The shade has been on all the major runways, and we can safely say it’s having a major moment. The best pieces for you to buy in cobalt are skirts, blouses and — of course — an amazingly structured blazer. The best colors to wear with it are basic blacks and whites — you just can’t go wrong. But to be a little edgier, pair cobalt with a loud checkered skirt or striped pants, and the bold pattern will make the look more striking.


Oversized coats

Ashlee Simpson

Exaggerate those shoulders! If at first you’re thrown off by the look of slouchy, oversized jackets, give it some time. They’ll grow on you because as coats go, they’re functional and versatile. Think about it: You can roll out of bed late for class, throw on a pair of jeans, any shirt you have lying around and that coat — and voilà! You have a really sleek look for class.


Unconventional denim

Victoria Beckham

Don’t be without a fresh pair of the latest jeans to one-up your friends this fall. Try coated denim for a pant that will transition easily from night to day with its buttery but shiny overlay. For someone more tomboyish, two-toned denim with mixed-matched light and dark spots looks cool and easy.


Heeled loafers

Eliza Doolittle

This is something you’ll want to pay special attention to! If you’re still wearing leopard loafers, it’s time to trade them in for a nice, new look. High-heeled loafers are perfect for students because they can go from rounding out a standard tweed jacket and chino to looking edgy and cool with a little dress for going out.


Statement earrings
and rings

Carey Mulligan

For this trend — the more bizarre and unconventional, the better. Rings with multiple finger slots are totally in. Drop-down earrings in unusual shapes and colors accessorized all the top runways for fall.



Blake Lively

Insects infested the runways at the fall 2013 shows, and if you’re thinking that sounds a lot like something your grandma would wear… you’re right! Draw some inspiration from her as you update your jewelry box this fall.
