Fall Fashion Trends Simplified

Still confused on what to wear now that we’re fully in fall? Look no further as Erin Kirkpatrick gives us tips and tricks

While everyone is still denying the loss of summer by spending these last few sunny days relaxing on the grass in St. Salvator’s and St. Mary’s Quad, the chill of the wind coming off the North Sea reminds us that fall has arrived and in full force. Here are some trends for this upcoming season:

The Revitalization of 70s Denim

Even though Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again is no longer playing in the New Picture House on North Street, the fashion from it has left a lasting impression. While it is so tempting to go out and buy some intense bell bottoms after seeing Lily James dance around in them, this season’s denim is a bit subtler. The denim trend has strayed from a straight leg to a wide leg flare.

Sneaker Head Culture

Long gone are the days of trainers only being used for sports. Recently sneaker heads have been having a strong influence in the fashion world, causing people to stray away from the old adage ‘beauty is pain.’ You can follow this trend in every day wear by exploring the dad shoe or finding the perfect white sneaker, like the Nike Air Force 1 ‘07s. However, sneakers don’t have to be reserved solely for walking to and from class. If you are daring, swap your stilettos for sneakers at the next ball you find yourself attending.

Back to School

The arrival of fall always reminds us of school, partly because we are still attending, but also because of the classic scholarly looks always seem to return. If you find yourself looking for a new fall jacket or your next key layering piece, look for something in houndstooth or plaid. You might even find options in the upcoming vintage sales at the Union, or at one of the eight charity shops adorning the streets of St. Andrews.

Color Trends

The monochromatic look doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, especially when the color of the season is something as bold as a fiery red. You can capture the color of the season by wearing a power combo of all red, even down to the shoes, on Market Street. If that seems a little aggressive, you can try something subtler by investing in some accessories that will add a pop of color to brighten up even the dreariest days in Fife.

Breaking Taboos

This season is encouraging trends that have not only come and gone, but have found themselves on lists of what not to wear. As shocking as it seems, one past ‘no-no’ is animal print. You can channel the classic leopard print with a fun shirt to wear to the weekly Bop or find yourself having to constantly remind people that your new, oversized, soft leopard print jacket is faux fur. Another rule that is being thrown to the wind this season is the timeline of when to wear white. So throw on your favorite article of white clothing, whether it is a jean jacket, graphic shirt, or a pair of trousers and don’t let the complementary calendars given out by the library dictate your fashion choices.
