Campus fall fashion

By in Opinions

Fall is here and so is new fashion! When the weather is chilly with a mix of sun and cloud, it’s the perfect opportunity to layer, play with neutrals and accessorize with scarves, boots and a warm jacket. Here’s a few of our university’s own fashion forward students, repping some fall outfits. Dressing to impress and  look your best is important for school, feeling great and achieving success.

Fall-Fashion-Guy--Katherine-FedoroffWhat is the best thing about fall fashion?

I mainly wear things according to whatever the weather is. So if I can still get away with wearing shorts these days when the weather is nice, I will. Generally speaking though, I don’t like to wear too many colours and I like to stick to earthy and neutral tones.

What is your favorite fall fashion trend?

I really like professional wear — sort of business casual. There’s a lot of people around campus who dress really nice like this. I usually choose things I like that are business-casual but also comfortable. I’m really not into wearing business shirts buttoned all the way up to the top. It looks uncomfortable and really hot, especially if you’re on the first floor of Murray, which is already 60 degrees to begin with. So if it’s not comfortable, I don’t see the purpose of it.

Why is dressing well important to you?

The way you dress is important to the way you present yourself. Being university students, we’re getting closer to entering our professional careers. So the way you present yourself is really important and the way you dress helps with how people perceive you to be. If you put a little bit of thought into how you look, it goes a long way.

I like layers, sweaters and that it’s so versatile; you can do so many things with fall fashion. You want to be warm — so layering things is kind of fun. Because we live in Saskatchewan, fall and winter are really long so we have to base our wardrobes off of fall fashion instead of summer and spring.

What is your favorite fall fashion trend?

I really like the turtlenecks that came in this year — I like that it’s practical. My wardrobe is pretty much all neutrals and I like that because I can switch things out and buying simple basic pieces makes everything so much easier.

Why is dressing well important to you?

I think dressing well is very important because when you’re dressed well you feel so much better about yourself. It gives you confidence to excel in your life. When I come to school and I’m dressed well and feel good about myself, I do better in everything. With business, it’s very important to look professional because people take you more seriously if you’re dressed appropriately.

What are some university fashion tips?

With university students, building your wardrobe on basics is important so you can also save money. It’s a good idea to spend a bit more money on pieces that you’re going to get a lot of wear out of. That way you can make the most out of all your purchases. I like to buy lots of neutrals and buy good quality pieces that last longer.

Sometimes I buy things and think I’m going to wear them all the time and I don’t really think about what I wear on a day-to-day basis. So it’s also important to think about what you’re realistically going to wear.
