Fashion FYI: Fall 2013 Trends

Bye-bye, Summertime. Your departure is bittersweet. You’ve provided me with sun-kissed locks and a tanned complexion, with more mosquito bites than I can ever count. I am so ready to fall into fall-fashions this school year. Take a page from our style guide and watch out for these trends…

90s grunge is back with a vengeance – baby doll silhouettes, velvet on velvet ensembles, and plaid prints are all the rage this season.

Candy coated pastel hues and high contrast black and white prints are huge statement pieces this fall. Snag ‘em while you can.

Working off the high contrast theme, polka dots are also making a stand this season. You’ll be sure to find tops and bottoms donning the print this fall, alongside a variety of embellished items.

Over-the-knee boots have a habit of going in and out of fashion year after year. Newsflash: THESE THINGS RULE! You can wear these bad boys with skinny jeans, leggings, or mini dresses for an extra “oomf.” Too hot.
