Sportswear inspired look from the Alexander Wang SS15 runway show.

This fall expect the school hallways to become a spitting image of this past fashion week’s runways, as fashion returns to its  ready-to-wear influences. Say goodbye to the high waist shorts and crop tops of the bohemian rose tinted past and say hello to shift dresses, joggers and your brothers skate shoes. The new fall color palette will shy away from the classic dark hues to include some brighter variants like blood orange, cherry red, royal blue and even pastels traditionally reserved for spring/summer as accents to fall looks. Trends this coming season will include athletic wear and a return to ‘90s teen vibes. As seen in Alexander Wang’s SS15 collection, styles featuring  mesh material, varsity stripes and pleated skirts are becoming all the rage. Commonly seen on girls around campus, the American Apparel tennis skirt is increasingly a go to item for those wanting to sport that athletic aesthetic. Additionally, mock turtle neck tops and plaid detailing paired with grunge style leather boots have also made a comeback from the ‘90s and are being seen on the racks of many trendy stores.

Key articles to recreate a relaxed but put-together look will be jogger pants and slip-on sneakers this fall. These trending pieces are already being seen on campus. Jogger pants are being sold in places ranging from Pacsun to Saks Fifth Avenue and slip-on style sneakers can be found in designs from high end designers like Celine to more affordable versions from Vans and H&M.

To complete the look, many will be happy to hear that  fresh face makeup  will soon be making its way from the models at Jason Wu and Michael Kors and onto familiar faces around school due to its simplicity and effort to showcase natural beauty.
