Back to School Trends

Back to school shopping can be fun, but it can also be stressful.  To make your shopping trip a little bit easier, here are a few trends from this fall’s fashion runways that are cute and easy to emulate.


Don’t shy away from bright colors like the oranges that have been appearing on the fall fashion runways.  This color can be the perfect addition to anybody’s back to school wardrobe, and it beautifully imitates the fall foliage.

The Runways presented their oranges like this:

But you can easily accomplish this look for cheap with these pieces from Warehouse:

Animal Accents:

The most fun fall trend is  animal print, ranging from birds to wolves, added to sweaters and skirts.  This trend may seem a bit strange to wear off the runway, but it is a surprisingly fun way to spice up your back to school shopping list.

Here it is on the runways:

You can find it at shops with a vintage flair like Forever 21 or Paris is Coming:

If you live in a place where the fall and winter can get chilly, this trend is perfect for keeping you both warm and fashionable! Hints of fur on the collars of coats and vests are chic and easy to find.

Shearling on the Runways:

What better way to welcome back the school season than with a little plaid?  Runways have been loving this popular prep school look, but you do not have to be a school girl to rock this trend.  Coats, skirts, shirts; you name it, plaid is on it. The amazing versatility of this pattern makes it easy to mix and match.

Plaid on the Runways:

This plaid ensemble from Asos combines three trends.  Orange, wearing a matching skirt and crop top, and, or course, plaid.  Plus, it’s within the average shopper’s budget!

These trends only scratch the surface of the many looks that walked down the runway this fall, but, if you are heading back to school, these are the most wearable on a daily basis.

Happy shopping!
