In New York City, students have just begun their first week of classes. This Fashionisto was found rushing around campus on move-in day preparing for the year ahead. With the harsh city heat, I was surprised when I saw this long sleeved outfit, but it was a quick reminder that fall is around the corner. Shorts are sadly seeing their last days, and jeans are becoming the norm once again.
This Fashionisto is sporting distressed dark wash skinny jeans paired with a neutral backpack and dotted button-down. This look is perfect for class, running errands or those long nights at the library because of its comfortable yet polished look. To finish off the outfit, this Fashionisto is sporting an East Coast staple: boat shoes. These loafers are a perfect blend of comfort and style. Their extreme durability makes them a popular choice for college students. An alternative would be a classic black slip on, like these. Leather loafers can be worn year round and go with almost any outfit.
While looking for the finishing pieces to add to your fall wardrobe, don’t forget these classics. You will be surprised on the countless ways you can wear these items throughout the season. Change one piece and you will create an entirely new look, which is ideal for any college student.
Hint: When looking for a pair of skinny jeans, make sure to pay extra attention to the fit. Just because they are skinny doesn’t mean they need to be skin tight. You need to be able to sit and move comfortably. There should be gathering around the knees and thighs. If not, move on to the next pair.
