Leaves are blowing across the cobblestones, students don scarves and boots and you’re craving anything pumpkin flavored. Its official, fall has arrived in full force. I love fashion around this time, especially the quintessential fall colors like maroon and hunter green. Cooler weather is cause for layering, which adds depth to any outfit. I’ve been observing a lot of layering techniques on campus lately. A popular choice is flannel, as demonstrated by this Fashionisto.
Flannel is a great choice for layering because it’s a stand out piece that can be matched with an entire outfit of neutrals. It keeps a look from being bland and keeps you toasty warm, of course! I like that this Fashionisto paired his plaid flannel with a hoodie underneath. This look is a little more grunge than some more formal attire that I’ve observed here in St. Andrews, but I think it’s perfect for a busy day of class because it’s both comfortable and stylish. As you can see, this Fashionisto picked a bold plaid. The pattern complements the brown shoes, while contrasting the rest of the neutral outfit. He traded a traditional backpack for a cool messenger bag, which is definitely a popular choice this season.
During this seasonal transition, dressing can be difficult because of unpredictable weather. That is exactly why layering is so essential. You can keep warm between classes and still have the ability to stay cool in that one classroom that always feels like a sauna. Layering will keep you looking good and feeling comfortable this fall.
Hint: As the weather gets even colder, add even more layers! Adapt this look with a pair of sturdy boots and warm jacket.
