The world is your perfect studio during the fall; grab your camera and some friends and head out to a local park and rake up the leaves and take fall photos!

2. Spending any time outside while you still can

Last minute Frisbee on your Library Lawn, a jog around campus, biking around your college town, bonfires at your local lake. Use this Fall to spend quality time with friends and be thankful for the cooler weather.

3. Go to home football games

4. Find a new indoor hobby for the winter

Take up reading, start a blog and document your college career, take more naps, binge watch Netflix, maybe, if you’re bored enough, start studying for finals

5. Speaking of Netflix, catch up on new seasons and episodes you missed while studying

6. Go on a last minute road trip before traveling takes an icy turn

No one likes to be shut in during the winter and we all love getting off campus every once in a while. So while it is still safe, take a trip to nearby state parks for camping or amusement parks for one last hurrah.

7. Make plans for winter break

We have almost a full month with no classes, no school responsibilities (unless you’re taking winter classes, in that case I’m sorry and you’re winning) so why don’t we go ahead and plan something awesome for every week or for the whole break; I hear NYC, California and Europe are wonderful vacation destinations.

Flannel: A Lumberjack’s best friend, or a college student’s best friend, or a ’90s enthusiast’s best friend.

Flannels are the greatest shirts for the fall and winter seasons. They are stylish, super comfortable and super warm. I wear them anywhere and everywhere. I even wear them to sleep sometimes. Flannels grew popular because of lumberjacks wearing them, but they hit their style peak in the 1990s when bands like Nirvana and Pearl Jam wore them on stage. Flannels are made from a material that is soft enough to wear for long hours at a time but tough enough to withstand the elements while working.

Flannel: Lumberjack style

Flannels are very versatile articles of clothing. You can wear them with the sleeves down and utilize the warmth of the long sleeves, or you can roll them up and find your happy medium. To be more like a lumberjack (costume idea?) you could just rip the sleeves off, or you could wear it around your waist and be retro.

Flannel: trendy style

Flannel shirts are super trendy, comfortable and relatable. I have three of my own, and I plan on expanding my collection this winter. They come in many different colors, but the fan favorite seems to be black and red.

Fall Fashion: Leggings

What every girl loves to wear when it’s cold they’re too lazy for real pants.

Fall season means the campus will be overrun with leggings. Whether they are fleece lined and patterned or solid colors and see-through leggings have one thing in common: comfort. Some think that leggings are trashy or they are for one type of person, leggings are for everyone (I have yet to see men wear leggings but that should be interesting). Leggings took the Fall stage first in the 1990s when they were outselling jeans and then again in 2005 when they were a “fashion revival” (storify.com/voicelessu771). Now leggings again become popular, they haven’t gone out of style they just make new ones. Patterned leggings, such as the ones from Lularoe, are a hit. You can wear then for more than yoga (eye roll); leggings are meant to be worn during the long chilly walk to class, to a date night with your favorite people and even to sleep in. Leggings are the ultimate fashion do.
