Fall is definitely one of the most beautiful times of the year. The ever so colourful leaves, brisk yet cozy weather, and the feeling of reinvention are all incredibly inspiring aspects of the season. Each of these elements can be reflected in some way through fall fashion. The colourful leaves inspire rich, jewel-toned pieces, while the weather encourages bulky sweaters, statement jackets, and trendy boots. Most importantly, with the start of school, fall is the perfect time to reinvent yourself – especially when it comes to your personal style.
Since universities and colleges are filled with thousands of students, it is very easy to merely blend in and just become a number. Utilizing fashion as a means of showcasing individuality and personality is a great way to set you apart and be remembered – in a good way, of course!
Here are some tips to get students through the fall season looking fabulous, but without breaking the bank:
- Don’t let the arrival of a new season make you feel as if you have to buy a completely new wardrobe.
Transition staple pieces from season to season, and make them appear as if they are new by styling them in different ways.
- Shop the newest trends, but at reasonable prices.
Trends come and go, and will not necessarily be carried into the next season or the next year. Indulge in the latest fashions, but look for these pieces at inexpensive stores such as H&M, Forever 21, and Zara. You can then pair these items with higher quality staples that are already in your closet.
- Share wardrobes with your friends!
Take advantage of the fact that your friends have great style, and swap pieces with each other whenever you feel as if you have nothing to wear. This allows for you to be versatile and it can save you loads of money.
- Dress for success.
Even when those lazy days strike, push through and rock a chic outfit. This will instantly boost your mood and help increase productivity. Looking good makes you feel good, and it is important to feel good at school so that you can be attentive and accomplish your goals. Just don’t forget to ensure that your outfits are school-appropriate.
- Be yourself.
Fashion is an art, and what you wear should express the type of person you are. Choose outfits that make you feel comfortable and good about yourself. Confidence is the best accessory – even if you are wearing something that may not typically appeal to the masses, you will look great if you wear it with confidence.
