Fall season is in full swing, and the clothes that are being worn on the runway in women’s fashion aren’t exactly daily wear you would see in a normal high school setting during the fall. There has been a noticeable switch from bright crop tops, tank tops and high-waisted shorts to leggings, leg warmers, boots and knit sweaters.
Senior Kayla Galvez explains how she has fun dressing for fall because she “loves to bring out those big sweaters and leggings.”
This time of year seems to be a very exhilarating and glamorous, as girls try to piece together items of clothing to make a perfect outfit.
Galvez continued to add on that when she thinks of fall fashion, she thinks of “warm colors like brown and maroon. [She] also think of scarves. Basically anything cute but comfy.”
One of this year’s fall fashion’s mottos is warm, cozy wear; this style contains oversized sweaters, leggings, scarves, combat boots with leg warmers and chunky bohemian bags.
The color red and maroon have been an abundant part of this fall season wear, often paired with metallic and leopard prints. Having pops of animal print help break up an outfit, but a little animal print goes a long way.
A surprising comeback of fashion that has become more relevant this fall is the 1950s and 1960s style. This type of outfit would consist of a loose t-shirt, rolled up jeans paired with flats, calling for a casual and cute outfit.
New items of clothing for this fall that have become more dominant are combat boots, scarves, sweaters and cardigans.
To get these types of trends Galvez states that she “likes going to little boutiques to find [her]… clothes.”
“I don’t like having the same clothes as everyone else, but some well-known stores that you can find cute fall clothes in are Forever 21 and Urban Outfitters,” Galvez said.
Menswear has also taken a prominent change from summer to fall just like women’s wear, but again the fashion that is being worn and shown on runways isn’t exactly what you would see in halls in a typical high school.
Junior Jose Sanchez goes into depth to explain his opinion on what he considers fall fashion to be, including the types of clothes he takes favor in to wear during the fall.
“I think fall is more of a fashionable season,” Sanchez said. “You can really show off your own style. It’s not like summer where you have to basically wear nothing or winter where you bundle to the point where you can hardly breathe. Fall is a perfect time to put that oversized sweatshirt to good use.”
According to the Basic Insider website, some trends that have been dominant this season for guys are “statement scarves, camouflage print, the color burgundy and plaid.”
Not all of these trends have to be worn at once for a well put together outfit for men. Most of the time you won’t see these types of trends at all unless you go to the city or someplace where fashion is up to beat and consistent throughout genders.
More daily wear you would see in a high school setting would be “fall clothes…consisting of jeans, cozy sweatshirts [and] long tee shirts… Along with lots and lots of scarves,” Sanchez said.
Sanchez also added that he believes, “fall style is bolder, yet more comfortable and relaxing.”
Menswear is rich in color, whether it is deep tones or brighter tones, and animal prints and textures add onto the depth of an outfit.
Sanchez believes that the newest addition to menswear fashion is scarves. This accessory can really spice up and add the finishing touches to any outfit.
To shop for men’s fashion, Sanchez describes that “the best places would be H&M, Urban Outfitters, Pac Sun and Guess, [and that] they are nicely priced and convenient to regular customers like [himself].”
Both genders’ fashion has the same accessory that is explained to be a new feature added this fall year. That accessory being scarves.
“There is so much to do with [scarves, and] with a million designs and a million different ways to style them, the sky’s the limit,” Sanchez said.
Men and women’s fashion this fall take part in the comfy but cute and daring but relaxed styles. Outfits that are produced this fall can be easily dressed up or dressed down. It becomes easy to dress in style, but stay comfortable at the same time for both men and women.
