Fall 2012 Trends: Clothing Staples Every Girl Needs

By Miranda McHodgkins

Chunky Knit Sweaters
Knit sweaters not only keep you comfy during the cooler months, but are also very casual and cute. It’s an easy piece to throw on when you’re in a hurry to get to school.

Riding Boots
I highly recommend investing in a good pair of riding boots because you’ll get a lot of use out of them. They go great paired with skinny jeans or leggings and are so comfortable and cute.

Sweatshirts/ Graphic Pullovers
Sweatshirts will not only keep you warm but by having a bold print or design on it can help make a statement and gives your look an edgier feel.

The Army Jacket
Military inspired clothes are big this fall and what better way to sport the look than with an army jacket. It looks great layered over knits, t-shirts and even dresses.

Leather Jackets
Leather jackets are a warm and fun way to spice up your look and give your look an edgy feel. Plus they are so effortless. You can pair them over a v-neck t-shirt with some skinny jeans and converse shoes and you’ve got a warm and comfy outfit for the day.

Polka Dots
If you could wear only one pattern for the entire season of fall I’d recommend polka dots. This season big and bold polka dot prints with bright colors are in and especially look cute on  a big oversized sweater.

Patterned Skirts and Pants
Feel like wearing something a bit bold and daring? This season crazy patterns are in such as tribal printed skirts. If you want to join in on the patterned trend, but want something more subtle I’d recommend trying out soft floral printed skinny jeans.

Cardigans and Blazers
These two pieces of clothing can dress up any outfit and will definitely keep you warm. Plus they are perfect for layering and you can play around with having layers underneath the cardigans and blazers pop out from your sleeves or if you have a collared shirt you can have that pop out from under you cardigan or blazer.

The Menswear Watch
Accessories that are in this fall are big wrist watches. They look great paired with cuffs or chunky bracelets.

Colored Bags
Another accessory that is hot this fall is colored bags. The crazier and brighter they are, the better. it’s perfect for a day when you’re just wearing a plain white tee and some skinny jeans and can instantly transform your outfit and make it look like you spent more time on your outfit than you did.
