Wrapping up summer and welcoming the fall season which starts today means sweater weather is back along with scarves, boots, and fall colors.

Moving away from the lighter, brighter colors bathing suit season offers; mustard yellow, burgundy, dark greens, and navy are painting stores throughout malls, as the leaf-changing months tumble around.  

“I’m excited for the leggings, Uggs and scarves in fall,” Jazmyn Everett, senior, said.

For students who want to keep up with the latest fashion, according to Cosmopolitan.com, over-the-knee boots, long blazers, and the usual light-weight sweaters are the trend this season. No more shorts, tank tops, and sandals as autumn rolls around the corner. Bundle up in scarves and army jackets to accommodate the weather. Also add brown combat boots. Bring out flannels, knit cardigans, and high tops as the calendar moves closer to Halloween and the Thanksgiving holiday.
   
A patterned coat, tailored athletic pants and leather according to Menshealth.com is the hot new vogue for boys. Joggers and graphic sweaters will stay, but shorts and tank tops should be put away till next summer.

“Jeans, tee-shirt, cardigan and combats will be my go to,” Reilly Collura, freshman, said.

Do not worry if you’ve already hit the mall. Early fall shopping is not wasted because last year’s fall fashions can be recycled into a new look. Chelsea boots, thin hoodies and army jackets will stay for another round. Fashionistas can rock last year’s styles with pride while making their way through the cooler months of this school year.
