Fall Fashion 101

Sponsored in part by Bluefly

We know you aren’t really supposed to pick favorites, but when it comes to fashion, fall is simply the best season for style. The colors! The layers! The accessories!

This fall there seems to be so many great styles and trends to choose from that it can be a bit overwhelming. Luckily, the editors at CollegeFashionista have cut through the clutter and broken down our must-have looks and pieces for this back-to-school season with the help of our friends at Bluefly.

1. The stacked heel—We love the architectural feel of this heel style. Definitely a modern upgrade to the classic black bootie. Our pick: Céline


2. Fringe—In case you have been living under a rock, fringe is back in a major way this fall. Incorporate this detail in your handbag for a boho look. Our pick: Valentino


3. White—Forget the rules! White for fall is a must. A white clutch is the perfect pop against the otherwise dark autumn color palette. Our pick: Foley & Corina Convertible Cross-body


4. Elevated backpack—Mix function and fashion with a noteworthy backpack. Perforated leather mixed with this atheleisure style is totally spot on. Our pick: Olivia Harris Leather Backpack


5. Boyfriend—Your boyfriends back…the boyfriend style that is. The oversized sweaters and blazers will keep you comfy and fashionable for class. Our picks: Autumn Cashmere Sweater


6. Cross-body—Hands down the most versatile handbag style for fall. Update your look easily with a classic style in an exotic print or trendy tassels. Our pick: Rebecca Minkoff ‘Lexi’ Drawstring Bucket Bag or Rebecca Minkoff ‘Mini Mac’ Convertible Cross-body


7. Jumpsuits—Welcome the ‘70s fashion revival with a simple jumpsuit. Look for one in black that can easily transition from day to night. Our pick: Wyatt Illusion Jumpsuit
