Back to School 2014: Trendy Styles for Fall

It's almost back to school season (or it might have already started for you) and it also means that it's almost time to rock some fall fashion! Fall is my favorite season and I am so excited to share some of my favorite fall styles. I have put together some outfit ideas surrounding three key fall essentials that is necessary in my fall wardrobe. Hope this post will give you some ideas about how to transition your summer pieces into a new fall look.

Trend #1: Plaid

Entire outfit from Forever 21
Shoes: Dr. Marten's 1461

Here I paired my crop top/muscle tee hybrid with what I think is one of the quintessential staples of fall - a plaid shirt. You can go ahead and throw on your flannel as well! Here I layered my plaid shirt with a denim jacket (which I'm holding in the picture, but if the weather is chilly, a denim jacket is the perfect layering outerwear.) I wore my pleather leggings from Forever 21 (which is on sale now for $8) along with some comfortable flats that go with everything I have. 

Here I have some outfit ideas that incorporates a plaid shirt. Plaid with leather gives an edgier look, while paired with boyfriend jeans and some black booties gives a casual and tomboyish vibe. 


Trend #2: High-Waisted Pants

Cardigan: Thrifted
Top: Loft
Pants: Forever 21
Belt: Thrifted
Shoes: Dr. Marten's 1461

Bringing the high-waisted trend into the fall, a pair of high-waisted jeans will add just a bit of attitude into any normal outfit. I got these high-waisted jeans on sale from Forever 21 and they fit like a glove. I recently thrifted this heavy and warm cardigan from Clothes Mentors and I am absolutely in love with it. I rolled up the sleeves to give the sweater some shape and paired it with a simple white botton-down. This monochromatic look is perfect for those days when you want to look nice but you don't want to stand out. 

Here I have two different looks incorporating high-waisted jeans. The outfit on the left is what I normally would go for: a little darker, a little edgier and rebellious. The outfit on the right is very cute in my opinion as well, a bit more girly with softer and lighter colors and a bright blue backpack.

Trend #3: Denim Vest

Tee: Aerie
Denim Vest: Forever 21
Shorts: Forever 21
Belt: Thrifted
Shoes: Topshop
Scarf: Aldo

Since it is not quite fall yet, there is still time to wear some shorts and tees. In this very casual look, I paired my denim vest with some high-waisted paper bag shorts and a decorative scarf. This was my go to casual -I'm doing nothing today but going to the grocery store- look for the summer. 

When you have the right denim jacket, it will be super easy to style because it would match everything. Here are two different outfits where, again, I incorporated two different styles. The outfit on the right is a good summer look, which I paired this awesome denim vest from American Eagle with a cute, flow-y dress, a sun hat, and some cute white oxford flats. The look on the left is my fall look, which I paired the same vest with a cropped gray sweatshirt, some distressed high-waisted skinny jeans and a red beanie.
