Although fall doesn't officially start until the end of September, most students like me, consider it to start on the first day of school. Which is in August. (You know, I just recently realized I have a summer birthday! I always thought it was fall, but it's not technically!) Seeing as school/"fall" is starting in less than a month :( :( :( ... I figured I'd say what I'm loving for (and will be sporting to) school.
Dark wash jeans & destroyed jeans; but not super-skinny. Straight or a looser fitting skinny is good, perhaps even a bootcut.
Ankle boots - everyone's loving them, and I'm no exception! I love my Doc Martens, and all those high heel ankle boots running around that I don't have any of... (Mainly because it's not practical for me. I hate wearing heels to school. I can walk in them just fine, and I actually love wearing them, just for school, I hate it. And I don't care enough on weekends to get them for then. :P) Also, I'm into OXFORDS as always.
Cardigans! I think they're a great year-round thing. Lightweight or heavier depending on the weather, I think both are good for fall. But I really like COLORS on cardigans right now. In particular I like darker (autumn) colors... forest-y green, dark purple, or dark blue/navy. A leafy orange or red would be good too...
Tiiiights~ they're so great for when it's cold, but you want to wear that short skirt (or even some shorts). I honestly can say that my tights keep me warmer than jeans. And what I really like for fall is patterned tights, of all different kinds. I think I've got ...(counting in my head)...8 pairs of patterned tights right now, plus basic skin tone and black ones are always in.
High-waisted shorts and skirts. I've always liked high waisted skirts, but for fall I'm also loving the 2 pairs of shorts I got at H&M. You'll see them soon enough! And you can pair them with just about anything~. I plan to wear skirts more than pants this year, especially in the fall.
Vintage... jewelry! Bracelets and necklaces, and even earrings. Classically vintage things - pocket watches, roses, trains, lockets, in classically vintage colors, silver, gold, copper, bronze, or a Victorian pink or ivory.
Nails! For fall, I love the french manicure (and pedicure too!). I'm planning on doing that for the first week of school. You guys haven't seen any pics of my nails, but I always do crazy-awesomesauce things. I haven't quite decided what to do past my first simple, chic french mani. (I love doing my nails... my favorite was for this last Earth week, I painted the earth on my nails, as in blue and green, but I shaped it so you could see specific countries. I only had space for Europe and Asia mostly. It sounds weird describing it.. I wish I had pics.)
Oh, also, high socks. Just showing above your ankle boots, or knee or thigh length. Loving those.
