Tired of regular, old blue jeans? Try patchwork denim! Patchwork denim is one of the most unique and popular trends for this fall. These jeans come in an assortment of colors such as neutrals shown above, shades of pink and purple, and classic light and dark wash denim. Stores such as Jaded London and Amazon sell patchwork jeans. You can also try to make your own patchwork jeans at home with recycled denim and a sewing machine. 

“In regards to the environment, I appreciate how people feel inspired to give life to an old pair of jeans whether it is through patchwork, paint, asymmetry, or dyes,” said Faith Drescher, senior.

Tennis skirts are a feminine and sporty piece that gained popularity this fall. Tennis skirts come in a variety of colors and have most commonly been worn with a crewneck sweater layered over a button up blouse. You can also pair it with a polo shirt and penny loafers for a preppy look!

“There are no rules when it comes to styling your tennis skirt,” said Esther Newman, fashion and lifestyle journalist for Refinery29

Newman suggests that the tennis skirt be paired with a button down and knit vest or a graphic sweatshirt and tube socks for a more 1990s inspired look.
