Fall has arrived! The first day of autumn was Sept. 23. It is now socially acceptable to be excited about fall holidays and activities. Halloween, hayrides, pumpkin patches and cider mills, but most importantly, fall fashion can make its way back into your wardrobe.
As the temperature drops, wearing a light jacket can keep you both fashionable and warm. There are a variety of fall jacket trends for this year. Recently, students have been wearing classic fall jackets, but with a twist.
Leather jackets are a necessity when it comes to fall fashion. The classic, sleek black look will always be a go-to. Black goes with anything, so it is easy to wear a leather jacket with anything such as a pair of pants, jeans, dresses or skirts.
The twist: Colored leather jackets have become a trend for Fall 2015. Some popular colors for the jackets include burgundy and gray. The colored leather jackets are fun for fall, simply because you can style them like a normal leather jacket, just with a little more color.
Denim jackets are another classic jacket that you will see around campus. In the ‘90s, people would wear over-sized jackets and pair them with denim jeans. The movie Dope featured many ‘90s styled outfits, including denim jackets. Movie-inspired outfits have been transitioning into fall fashion.
The twist: Taking style tips from the ‘90s, acid-washed denim jackets are making a comeback. Also, denim jackets with colorful patches sewn on are squeezing their way back into the style trend.
When the weather is more chilly and rainy, trench coats come in handy. Just like leather jackets, they go great with any outfit, and come in a variety of colors.
The twist: The trench coat trend that is becoming fashionable this fall is the longer trench coat. This instantly adds a touch of class to any outfit.
