The best things come in pairs. When looking for fall fashion trends on campus I noticed that some of my classmates were rocking similar looks. And I’m not talking about sweats and a CCSU shirt–actual outfits that were put together well.
Denim Button Downs
Button down blouses have been all over the place this summer for girls; they came sleeveless, lacy and made with thin fabric. Guys also wear button down shirts, but they’re perceived as more formal. With denim button downs, not only can a guy or girl rock the look as seen in the photo, but it’s comfortable and casual for fall while still looking classy. To avoid a denim on denim clash, take the advice of our student models and pair it with colored pants. Finish the look with nice flats, boat shoes or oxfords and look classy for class.

We’re college students on a budget, so a great inexpensive way to revamp your wardrobe for fall is with scarves. Anyone can take a drab, basic outfit and make it fantastic simply by throwing on a scarf. It’s a quick way to look put together this season. Simply by adding the scarves to their look, our student models’ outfits become eye catching. Take note!

Look fierce and fashionable in animal print! It’s another big trend for fall that is easy to pull off. Animal print tops make a statement on their own, so leave the rest of the look simple, as the students do in the picture.

Mad for Plaid!
I wouldn’t call plaid a trend for fall; it’s beyond that. It’s more of a fashion staple come autumn. Everyone has their own unique way of styling plaid shirts–they’re like jeans in that regard. Students were spotted around campus wearing the look. Caity Ross wore it with denim cutoffs and her signature beanie. Demir Mehovic, who’s in the band Sirens Over Sumeria, wore it with khakis and various wristbands.
Sophomore Fallyn Kittelson left her girly plaid shirt unbuttoned and paired it with Capris.
All these students-turned-models looked very stylish for the season.
