2018 School Supply List for Fall Fashion

Alexa Caccamo, Copy Editor

Welcome back, Golden Grizzlies! It has been three months since walking the grounds of Oakland University and it is time to get down to business.

For starters, we are a few weeks away from the fall season returning, and there are a few things we must be prepared for: tailgates at college football games, trips to the cider mills, Halloween and more importantly, fall fashion.

Fall is the most well-known season when it comes to style, and it is vital to have the perfect attire. Every year, retailers launch amazing collections that make walking through the halls of South Foundation Hall, having lunch in the Oakland Center or grabbing a pumpkin spice latte even more enjoyable. Compare fall to summer, winter and spring, and you’ll see that when it comes to originality, fall comes out on top. It is important to take advantage of the endless list of trends it has to offer.

Since there are so many fads that take hours to list, here is a school supply list. No, not a list that tells you to buy pencils, pens and folders, but a list that entails some of the most popular trends to help you own OU’s campus. Without further ado, here is the 2018 school supply list for fall fashion:

1. Turtlenecks

Turtlenecks are a staple. Turtlenecks not only get you through the fall season but through the harsh, cold winter that comes after. You can wear them with a pair of jeans, a skirt, a statement jacket and with a pair of tall boots or booties. You can’t go wrong with a turtleneck.

2. Flare Jeans

Add a little “flare” to your style and get yourself a pair of flare jeans. Flare jeans not only give your outfit that ’70s vibe but they are comfortable as well. They’re perfect for days when you want to be comfy and look fashionable at the same time.

3. Berets

Take a little piece of France and wear it on OU’s campus this season. Berets are not only chic but are classy and go well with a skirt or jeans and booties. They’re a feminine and timeless accessory that will never go out of style.

4. Plaid Mini Skirts

Be bad and bring out the plaid! Urban Outfitters has recently released a collection of mini skirts, and a majority of them are plaid. Plaid mini skirts are a necessity for two reasons: you can wear them with any top and shoe of your choice, and they are good for early fall when it is still warm outside and you want to wear fall clothes without drowning in sweat. To stay trendy and survive early to mid-September, stop by an Urban Outfitters ASAP.

5. Belt Bags

Similar to the idea of a fanny pack, belt bags wrap around your waist but you put them through the belt hoops of your jeans and it looks more like a purse than a nylon sack. Why wear a purse on your shoulder or across your body, and wear a belt when you can have the best of both worlds and wear a belt bag? These bags are both stylish and convenient because whenever you need to pull out your student ID, driver’s license, credit card or any beauty product, you don’t have to dig through your purse to find them because your belt bag is small and right in front of you. Be smart and stylish and purchase a belt bag.
