End of summer is upon us, Fashionistas. Summer school is officially over and campus is empty for a few short weeks before fall semester begins.
As we take on a new semester of classes and parties, we also open up our closets to the new trends that will fill it along with the store windows and magazine pages. These trends have made their way down from New York Fashion Week to the streets of our very own city, in a process that regulates at least a portion of our economy.
Runway fashion is crucial to Fashionista's here at UNCW because it sets the pace for what we all wear. As a prediction for fall fashion, I suggest all Fashionista/os to find their way to style.com – the headquarters for all fashion looks.
My personal guidelines for this coming fall will be along the lines of Stella McCartney’s Pre-Fall runway. This selection of looks and trends encompasses many combinations of feminine details in different capacities. She uses metallics, lace, and ruffles with structured lines for the ultimate Fashionista wardrobe. Unexpected combinations like these are what make us stand out, so don't be afraid to mix not only these small details but also different brands and colors.
The Fashionista featured is wearing a skirt that would make Stella proud. The ruffles add a girly and young feel to what would usually be a simple pencil skirt. Mix a skirt like this with lacey tights and a black blazer for structure and you are runway ready!
Hint: To take this idea from the runway to the quad, embrace the thought of mixing different textures, prints, and other details. When gaining inspiration from runway looks this fall, you’ll be ahead of your classmates in style.
