We love summer, but we have to admit: we’re pretty excited for layers. We threw on some of our favorite fall trends here in Philadelphia for photographer Brandon Hayden. On our back to school shopping list this year? Plenty of retro athleisurewear, Clueless-inspired plaids, camo and denim.
Fall Trends: Feeling Fit
Rolling out of bed and heading to class has never been easier. This season, we’re all about track pants, track jackets, retro sneakers (how about these old-school Air Jordans?!) and classic athletic logo tees. These looks are the 90s all over again and we couldn’t be happier about it. Fair warning, though: if you often use the excuse of, “I forgot my gym clothes at home,” you’re out of luck. Welcome to the fittest fall yet!
Fall Trends: Feeling Clueless
For those mornings when you leave yourself more than 10 minutes to get dressed, do your hair and grab a granola bar on the way out the door, 90s prep is one of our favorite fall trends. We jut love Cher Horowitz too much for it not to be. For the gals, pick up a checkered school uniform skirt and you’re ready to hit the mall. For guys and gals alike, try on a plaid blazer or checkered scarf and you’ll be saying, “Ugh, as if!” in no time.
Fall Trends: Feeling Camouflaged
Don’t sleep on this 90s trend! Camo is everything right now, not to mention everywhere. This year, we’ve been seeing it in lots of fun new ways like brightly colored camo pants. If this is one of those fall trends you’re not ready to go whole hog with, try it out in a more laidback way: just throw on an oversized camo button-up as a lightweight layer or pick up a camo backpack. Pair with your favorite denim for a 90s streetwear look that’s guaranteed to impress your classmates.
If you’re ready to start shopping for the new school year, be sure to clean out your closet and stop by your local Buffalo Exchange to trade it in for cash or your favorite fall trends. Whether you’re more athleisure, more prep or more street, we have the 90s look of your dreams waiting for you, plus plenty of great everyday staples to mix and match with.
