I decided to do a fall photoshoot on our campus with some Trinity students: sophomore Natasha Muppala and juniors Walker Lands and Eleanor Oâ€™Shei. The photoshoot incorporates some of the trends that I wrote about in my previous article, â€œFall Fashion for the back-to-school season.â€ Regardless of it being a sunny and warm day, I did not hesitate to style them in fall classics like knit sweaters, turtlenecks and bomber jackets. They might have complained a little about dressing for 70 degree weather when it was 90 degrees out, but they will thank me later when they post the bomb(er) â€” no pun intended â€” pictures, taken by junior Jack Parker, on Instagram.
I wanted to give the photos not only a fall feel, but a back-to-school, looking-cool feel, so I did the shoot on the bleachers by the football field. I dressed Lands in a jiggy red quilted bomber jacket, which dominated the runway for fall-winter 2017 fashion week. That jacket looked like something a 1950s greaser would wear, so Walker looks like an actual rebel without a causeÂ â€”Â yes, I just made a James Dean joke.
For the ladies, I wanted to continue with the red since itâ€™s this seasonâ€™s color. So I had Muppala in boss-lady-like red pants with a black sweater. Then, Oâ€™Shei in all black, but made it a little cute and country by having a red bandana, a western classic, tied around her neck.
I think these looks are trendy and easy pieces to find at stores like H&M or Nordstrom. They can go well on a dinner out to Pizza Classics with friends, studying at Rosella or even for giving a presentation in class.
But regardless your style and taste, have fun dressing up this fall because itâ€™s more than just boots and scarves!
