Even though the leaves on the trees have yet to change on campus, the mornings are crisp and the evenings chilly. Students are slowly changing their wardrobe by bringing out sweaters, scarves and a personal favorite of mine – leather. This Fashionista was wearing all three of these fall essentials. I remember first seeing leather leggings paired with a chunky scarf on the Olsen twins at a Chanel show back in 2008 and the trend has been around ever since.

CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing today?
Stephanie Espinosa: What I am wearing today is leather leggings, a white boyfriend T-shirt and a black cardigan all from Forever 21. I'm kind of obsessed with that store! I also am wearing a peach loop scarf from Express and gladiator shoes from Charlotte Russe.
CF: What influences your style?
SE: Classy, bold colors and sophisticated looks inspire my style and I like to mix it up with a little bit of bohemian. I like to dress on how I am feeling that day.
CF: What trends are you excited about for the upcoming season?
SE: I'm excited for knee-high boots and combat boots for the upcoming fall and winter season. I am in love with both of them!
How To: Leather has always been a huge trend for fall and winter. It seems that the leather legging/pant is finally coming into the main stream and is gaining acceptance by many more people then they were four years ago. Places like BCBG and Topshop are hotspots for leather pants and leggings.
