With a new school year finally here, you’re ready to hit the books once again.

You’ve got all your pens and notebooks, and you’re now wondering what to wear on those first days back to class.

With fall having such variety in its weather forecast, you have to be able to adapt what you’re wearing as fast as the weather is changing. This should give you a few tips on what is “in” this season and how to wear it.

Boots are the essential piece for this season. From leather to duck-hunting boots, they can all be dressed to fit your outfit and the weather. With cold, rainy days, they’re the perfect way to keep your feet warm and dry. For an added touch of warmth, wool socks are perfect. Socks peeking out the top of the boot is a great look for fall.

All types of jackets come out around this time of year: jean, leather, rain, etc. But according to what has hit the runways, it looks like oversized jackets are the trend. It doesn’t matter what fabric or material it’s made of, as long as it’s very large in size. The look it gives off is very ‘90s grunge. Maybe combine it with ripped jeans, a solid colour T-shirt and a pair of Converse sneakers, if that’s your style. Or pair it with your boots!

Fur is this season’s “it” fabric choice. Great for keeping you warm on those chillier days. Of course, it doesn’t have to be real. Faux fur is a great way to follow this trend without hurting any of our furry friends. Another way is to thrift shop. Buying used fur garments can help you be environmentally friendly and fashion forward.

It’s time to ditch the backpack as over-the-shoulder bags are in. Guys and girls can benefit from a great bag. Not only can it hold all your textbooks and laptop, but also you can throw in just about anything: your wallet, makeup, sunglasses, anything you’d need for a day on campus.

While walking to campus, you may be chilly from the autumn wind. Then, once in class, you may be sweating. That’s why fall is the most important time to layer your clothing. You may be going to class in the morning in a hoodie, but by noon, be wearing a tank top. That’s why it’s important to have pieces that are easy to take off and on because the weather can be all over the place this time of year.

This doesn’t mean that you all need to go out and buy a completely new wardrobe for the school year, though. These are just a few things that you can do to look great and feel cool with this new school year and season finally here.
