Across the nation, colleges are opening their doors to students once again as fall semester starts. Fashionistas are eager to return in order to catch up with friends and, of course, to sport the latest and greatest fashion trends. One thing that can be great to know for this fall is that denim truly never goes out of style. Destructed denim is making a huge impact in the upcoming season. This Fashionista loves the new trend of distressed denim and cannot wait to indulge more during this upcoming school year.

Nothing says fall fashion quite like denim does. Distressed denim is popping up everywhere. What is great about this trend is that it is not limited to just jeans. Designers are adding destructed denim to all aspects of their collections like jackets, miniskirts, overalls and shirts. Light wash denim gives any look an effortlessly cool vibe.

The Fashionista embraces the vintage appeal trend with a pair of light wash, destructed, cropped jeans. She perfectly pairs her denim with black strap sandals. Going light on the accessories, she sports mixed metal bracelets and a pendant necklace. This outfit embraces both hints of summer and fall. The delicate, black chiffon top with lace embroidered straps still holds out for summer weather. Adding the lightweight flannel around the waist is a great transition piece for the chilly weather that comes in the fall. The balance between the femininity of the black top and the edgy-chic appeal of the flannel creates a perfect equilibrium.
