What’s the best part about going back to school? Shopping the fall fashion trends! When the weather gets cooler, the fashion gets hotter — and this year’s fall trends are burning up the racks. Here are the latest and greatest looks for the perfect back to school wardrobe.
- Embrace the 1970s. ’70s-esque fashion is still fully en vogue on the runways. Pick yourself up a pair of flared pants, because skinny jeans don’t show any sign of returning. Better yet, flared pants are much more flattering on different body types. Definitely embrace this trend and snag a pair of basic black and denim flares. Daring fashionistas may want to try on a pair of high-waisted pants with a fitted blouse — your legs will never look longer. For dresses, choose between two aesthetics: an earth-toned boho look or a 70s glamour nightlife look. Nervous about over-spending? Consider loading a prepaid card, like the Reach prepaid card, with your allotted fall fashion budget. You’ll save yourself from some costly overdraft fees.
- Go Maxi. Maxi dresses and skirts are all the rage. Those who favor bold stylings should go the sheer maxi dress route; others should stick to solid colors or basic prints. Though winter-weight maxi dresses abound, look for appropriate layers to go with your maxi pieces: remember that if you bundle up too much you’ll look more like a Puritan than a cutting-edge fashionista. Choose V-neck layering tops or short-sleeved jackets. Make sure your shoes aren’t clunky, either; with that much fabric, you need lightweight shoes to balance the look.
