a denim dress that I rock with a stripped flannel shirt and boots,” said Stoffel. Another trend this fall is the military inspired army green jacket. It adds just the right amount of toughness to any outfit. “Try pairing the army jacket over floral leggings,” explained Vano Kimmel, SCSOPA modeling Coach and Stylist. “This look is mesh jerseys. Jeans and a tee never go out of style, but this basic pairing looks modern when layered with a bright cardigan and metallic kicks. Take your denim game to the next level by adding versatility like animal prints. Treat patterns in denim like a neutral and pair them with a graphic tee or a lace top. For Back-To School, trade your skinnies for flare jeans to instantly update your entire look. “Wide-leg jeans are big for fall,” stated Vano. Designers are showing cropped styled flare jeans that hit just above the ankle. “They are the latest take on the 70’s trend and they’re a fun way to show off your cute shoes,” said Vano. The trick is to skip the SCSOPA Student Dakota Booher edgy, but soft and appropriate for any age.” A printed baseball jacket also updates your BackTo-school look. Try putting a girly spin on this sporty trend by layering baseball jackets in femme prints and colors with your favorite ripped jeans and Dakota Booher breezy boho blouses and pair them with structured tops. Suede is huge for fall and continues the ‘70s, boho vibe. “A moto jacket in brown suede is totally Coachella-chic” said SCSOPA student Dakota Booher and tie dye is back! Update the hippie-chic staple with structured neutrals. Get in on the ‘70s trend in a denim jumpsuit and cool booties. A monochromatic look is anything but boring, especially when you choose a bright hue. Marsala is Pantone’s color of the year and mixing textures and styles of the same color keep it interesting. The one item everyone needs to go Back-To-School with is the bag. Bright, colorful backpacks are always classics, but today many school goers are choosing to carry over-sized satchels instead. Fashionable tote bags are a fun and stylish way to carry books and other life essentials. “Totes look super cute with any school day outfit,” said Elise Stoffel, SCSOPA student. 29
