Fall style inspo from college destinations across the U.S.
Fall is finally in full swing, and if you’re a student attending classes on campus this semester, that means a few things are likely underway. First, you’ve successfully mapped out your course schedule (getting from the student union to your creative writing lab in record time, naturally). Second, you’ve set up your living space exactly how you like it, whether you’re staying in the dorms, commuting from home, or you’ve found your first off-campus apartment. Next comes landing your look, and with so many great comfy-meets-classic staples to choose from, the best style strategy is starting early.
Whether your college campus channels trail-blazing trends from the Pacific Northwest or city-smart layers for the bustling East Coast, Elite Daily has your fall wardrobe covered.
