Fall is here, and you know what that means … fall fashion! Now that the heat is —— hopefully— — disappearing, it’s time to bring out some warmer wear to match the autumn chill. To celebrate, here is a list of my top five favorite fall fashion trends of 2021!

Number Five: Leather Mid-Calf Chelsea Boots

My favorite part of the fall season has always been boots. As someone whose spring and summer wear tends to be on the cuter side, fall boots are a welcoming transition to something a little bit tougher. And this year, nothing is as tough as these mid-calf Chelsea boots. The way the sleeve of the boot hugs the calf is reminiscent of a comic book superhero. Wearing these with darker, tighter silhouettes will give the impression you are ready to kick a– anytime, anyplace. These platforms are especially nice if you want to lean into their intimidating nature. 

However, if you are looking for something a bit more low-key, these boots can still work for you! Getting ones with a little bit more room on the calf can make them look more like chunky rain boots, without the squeaky rubber. Paired with some looser, brighter-colored clothing, the Chelsea boots take on a new persona that lends itself more towards an oversized streetwear look. Additionally, you can buy these boots in white, resulting in a fresher, 70s-inspired vintage look — think Go-Go boots. 

If you are looking for some new boots this season, these are the ones to buy! Not only are they cool now, but they also have a decent amount of staying power, making them less of a trend and more of a staple in the fashion world. 

Number Four: Straight Leg Utility Pants

Looking at another great piece from a similar aesthetic, utility pants are here now, and boy am I excited. If you’re like me and have worn the same medium wash Levis for the past five days, these are the pants for you. They are just simple enough to match with anything, but have enough personality for someone to stop you on the street and say, “Hey! Cute pants!”

The draw of these pants is in the name: utility. They make me feel like I am on my way to scale a building, learn how to metalwork, or smash a car with a sledgehammer, even if what I am really doing is sitting in the Geisel Library typing an essay on my laptop. They radiate power in such a way that I feel more confident when wearing them. 

I personally prefer these utility pants in black or tan. I find that these colors blend into my wardrobe the best, and are the easiest to match with pieces such as a vintage t-shirt. I also like matching them with simple tank tops or oversized long sleeves. However, for those of you who prefer something a little bit flashier, I recommend these pants in a bright red, perhaps with white stitching on the edges. Regardless of whichever color you choose, you better believe that you’ll look great. 

Number Three: Rugby Polos

Out of everything on this list, the oversized rugby polo took the longest time for me to come around to. It sort of felt like both a retread of past trends and something silly that probably wouldn’t stay around for long. But after walking around campus for a bit and seeing them everywhere, I must …….
