Colorful leaves and chill weather beckon the arrival of no other season than fall. After months of basking in our sundresses and bikinis, it’s time to prepare for ourselves for colder weather.
Syracuse’s weather is unpredictable. Within one day, we can experience sunshine, rain and strong winds. It’s important to be properly dressed to brave the elements. Here are the top 5 fall essentials that will help you survive the season in style.
Oversized Knit Sweater
Nothing’s better than dress for comfort and warm, all the while still being fashionable, and the oversized sweater fits the criteria. Try to update your sweater collection by trying unconventional colors. Mossy-green or deep purple are refreshing alternatives that fit the fall color palette. Also look for longer sweaters than can function as tunics to get the most out of your wardrobe.
The longline cardigan, the cover-up of the season that provides warmth and that extra dramatic flair. To incorporate runway style into everyday wear, pair the cardigan with high-waisted jeans and menswear-inspired ankle boots.
No color encapsulates the spirit of fall than a rich, dark brown. And what better way to incorporate that color than with a timeless leather jacket? Just layer it accordingly and you’ll be toasty throughout the season.
Transform summer skirts into fall-ready garments by throwing on a pair of fleece-lined tights. They’ll keep you warm and trendy! Try looking for some jewel-toned tights if you want to add a splash of color.
Any Syracuse student knows that fall brings a lot of rain so it’s best to be prepared. This garment combines two fall essentials: a raincoat and a parka. Lightweight, waterproof, and available in olive green, this rain parka will be your best friend for the season.
