The cold days are headed our way, which means it’s time to put away last season’s rags and stock up your wardrobe with this years hottest trends. Fall is the best time for any fashionista at heart, picking an outfit out for school can be time consuming but you’ll be happy to know last year’s fall favorites have carried into yet another season! I’ve made a list of the top 5 trends you can expect to see on campus this season that are sure to rock your look this fall semester.
Trend #1: Chunky Knits
Cozy is the best way to describe this trend. Of course colder weather calls for warmer clothing; that’s why this season you can expect to see many girls on campus showing chunky knit love. I have always loved this trend because not only is it versatile, but it is also super comfortable. Who doesn’t love to be comfortable and fashionable at the same time especially when you’re stuck in class all day?
Trend #2: Plaid
Plaid is always a reoccurring fall-time trend and my personal favourite. The classic pattern can be played up or down and can be seen in a variety of different clothing from jackets and button downs to scarves and even footwear! I know I’ll never be out of style on campus wearing a plaid shirt or even having it wrapped around my waist, it can be worn with skinny jeans or leggings tucked into your favourite pair of this season’s boots. The possibilities are endless.

Trend #3: Hunter Boots
The ever-so-trendy rubber boots are back for another season. I have always been a huge fan of these boots because they are so simple it makes them extremely versatile with any fall outfit you throw on. Campus style suggests that this Canadian footwear staple is going to be the shining star during this fall semester. These boots are best to be worn with skinny pants (of your choice) that you can easily tuck into the boots, an easy footwear choice when you’re rushing out the door for class.
Trend #4: Blanket Scarves
Although infinity scarves are still popular, say hello to the latest fall craze – blanket scarves. These scarves are thicker and warmer and are more than likely found in a flannel fabric, making them an easy choice on chilly fall days. On days when I feel my outfit is lacking excitement I’ll add a blanket scarf to the mix and feel confident in my look for the day. A blanket scarf is an easy accent to any outfit and they can be found in a multitude of colours and patterns.
Trend #5: Leather Jackets
The final and biggest trend you’ll see on campus this fall is the widely adored leather jacket. It’s too warm for your winter coat but just cold enough that you can get away with wearing a stylish jacket to finish off any outfit. The leather jacket is an absolute closet staple for fall and a campus style go to.

The best part about all of these trends is that they are totally interchangeable; you can wear any of these items together or even all at once and still be in style! There is no limit to the fashion possibilities. The last thing I need as a student is added stress so following these top five trends this fall I know I’ll be stylish on campus without having to worry about what I’m going to wear for school next.
