Originally designed to be worn by soldiers during combat and training, combat boots are a military staple. TCNJ’s campus may not be a battlefield, but combat boots are still just as appropriate this fall. The beauty of combat boots lies in their versatile and enduring qualities. Pair them with something feminine to toughen the look up, or throw them on after heavy rain and feel free to splash through puddles. This Fashionista rocks hers with skinny jeans and a cozy knit sweater, pulling her whole look together. This military chic footwear trend comes in a variety of styles, all available at ALDO. Try a pair with buckles, in leather, with heels or as platforms.
This Fashionista’s bright knit sweater is very on point for fall. Knits are a popular fall staple, seen on fall runways like Chanel's. Go for oversized, cozy knit sweaters or knit accessories to make the trend accessible and wearable every day. Knits in fun patterns and bright colors, like this Fashionista’s cool tribal print, are even better. Tribal prints and accessories were very big this summer. They were found in bright colors perfect for the warm summer days. Now the prints are becoming more toned down, taking on hues associated with fall-like browns and oranges.
Comfortable clothes don’t always have to mean a sweatshirt and a pair of UGGs. Take a note from this week’s Fashionista and update your comfortable clothes to be fashionable too. Combat boots will keep your feet dry, and knits will keep you warm as the weather gets cooler. Both are simple trends any Fashionista can, and should, try to rock. So when getting dressed for that 8 a.m. class this week, don’t let the fear of not being comfortable hinder your style.
