Hello trendy pack! Fall is officially among us and you know what that means, time for pumpkin spice flavored everything, an excuse to wear dark colors and the trendiest pieces you’ve been dying to wear all year long.
Although summer (and the hot temperatures that come along with it), hasn’t come to terms with the fact that its time is up, the cooler weather is definitely sneaking its way in. This season is all about coats, cardigans, booties, flannels, joggers, head pieces, dark lips and so much more!
Sometimes being fashionable costs too much, but it doesn’t always have to be a pain. Students around campus are showing us that style isn’t always about brand name pieces or how expensive they are.
You can show off and still pay your rent.
“Whatever I feel that day, [my outfits] depend on my mood. If it’s a long day, I want to be comfortable but I also want to look put together,” said student Richard Meza as he described his style as “random and thrifted.”
According to students on campus, thrifting is the thing to do. It’s an affordable way to look trendy, but still keep your wallet happy.
Student Bomi Han explained where she finds her pieces of clothing, “Online on Korean websites, American Apparel and when I don’t have money, I go to Goodwill.”
“Thrifting” is the smart way to shop, while keeping a unique style.
Style is putting your own individual personality and attitude into what you wear.
Being trendy is what you make out of fashion. It’s being able to stand next to a person wearing the exact same thing as you, but giving it a completely different vibe.
Some students find inspiration from celebs like student Kenya Johnson. “I look at what celebrities are wearing and what’s trending at the moment, like Rihanna.”
It’s being able to stand out, rather than blend in; how you style pieces together to make them your own.
“Personally, my style is versatile. It all depends on how I’m feeling that day. Today’s outfit is more like sporty and comfortable but still fashionable. I like to be color coordinated and sometimes I don’t,” said student Noe Suarez.
Whether you’re a big spender and like to pop tags or you like to ball on a budget, you can definitely count on your fellow coyotes to keep you updated on whats trendy this quarter.
So what are you waiting for? Hurry and make sure you go grab those essentials to look on point all season long.
Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone this fall that will umph your style.
Stay young and stay fashionable ‘yotes!
