The temperatures are dropping, the leaves are changing and so are the styles, but that’s not stopping Keene State College students from bundling up in style.

KSC students shared their styles for the fall 2015 season and said fashion icons they look up to include Sam Smith, Kanye West, Lauren Conrad, Rihanna and Pia Mia.

Fashion Week may have just happened but, for those who couldn’t make it, here’s the inside scoop on what to wear.

Have to pull something together for class? A pair of Nike sneakers and joggers will not only up your style but also will be the comfiest look you’ll find.

KSC senior Ali Lague said she loves big vintage sweaters.

“They are comfy but also look really good,” Lague said. She said that she would never wear floral shirts in the fall and trades pastel colors in for more earthy tones.

Senior Eric Mealey has versatile fall looks. “On conservative weather days I wear a blazer or cardigan with a V-neck and loafers. For a comfortable exam day I’d wear a V-neck, scarf, skinny jeans and some Chuck Taylors,” Mealey said.

When Mealey goes out on the weekends he said that he goes for the flowy long-length look and wears a suede bootie dress shoe, like a pair of chukka’s, calling this look “classy” yet “subtle.” He said that he would love to purchase a big fedora hat and leather jacket for the fall season.

According to ELLE magazine this fall it’s all about long layers. Their senior fashion editor Nikki Ogunnaike wrote, “Say what you will, this whole not-putting-your-arms-in-your-blazer thing is not going away. Drape it over your shoulders to create what we’re calling The Editor Cape. It lends a polished touch to jeans, a T-shirt and sneakers. If you haven’t figured out how to do the dress-over-jeans thing yet, treat your top as a vest, wear it over another shirt, then add dark denim jeans.”

Junior Chelsea Camacho said that while we’re in between season it’s from “romper to jumper.”

Camacho said although we’re in between seasons the weather is still nice enough to show some skin. “To warm things up I’ll throw a cardigan over a dress.”

Camacho also added that the 70s are coming back. “The 70s are definitely inspiring some trendy looks like turtlenecks and bell-bottoms,” Camacho said.

Beth Doyle, owner of Moe – Moementum Clothing located in downtown Keene, shared her fashion sense for this fall.

“The 70s are definitely coming back and we’re starting to see some flare jeans. But skinnies [skinny jeans] are not dead and I think they never completely will be. You can wear almost any jean bottom,” Doyle said, and “fringe is also really big and leather.” She said her inspiration is “boho chic.”

Sophomore Stephanie Silva said her fall go-to is a flannel.

“You can dress flannels up or wear them casually,” Silva said.

Silva’s leaving her high-waisted shorts for the summertime and bringing out denim jeans, particularly ones with rips on the knees.

Want to find these looks? The latest fashions can be difficult to afford, but there are many shops that offer similar styles at a reasonable price. KSC students said stores they shop at are H&M, PacSun, Urban Outfitters and Forever 21, places both guys and girls can find new fall looks. You can also go to one of the boutiques here in Keene like Synergy and Moe’s.
