Although you may still be in summer mode, fall is right around the corner. Temperatures have dropped into the high 60s and low 70s the past few days, forcing retail stores to clear out their summer merchandise and replace it with sweaters, boots and long sleeve shirts.

Soon the school work will become overwhelming and students across campus will become busier and busier. Before you know it, you’ll be dressed in fall clothes and wishing warmer weather was back.

Last fall there were some popular items that I’m sure students on campus will be wearing again this year. For example, bomber jackets were everywhere last year and will continue to be in style this fall. These jackets come in a variety of styles from light to heavy and are wearable for any season.

According to the fashion experts of the world (and what we saw during the most recent fashion week), the color to wear this fall is red. Personally, I’m excited because red is one of my favorite colors to wear and is practical for any occasion. Slip on a sleek red dress for a fancy event or dress it down with boots and a scarf for class.

Another item that’s still in this fall is over-the-knee boots. I’ve become so used to wearing these that any other style feels wrong. In just about every store, there are several styles being showcased. According to Elle Magazine, we can expect a lot of new trends this fall such as ’70s plaid, more fur, glittery boots and retro hats. I’m excited to see what fall fashion will be displayed on campus this semester!
