With the new school year approaching and summer days at the beach and barbecues coming to an end, many students here at Penn State are grappling with the question of what to wear to class every day. It bothers me.
Fashion is evolving day by day. The designer’s runway shows and classic street style give him a two-lane effect where current trends have room to grow and bounce off one another.
Here’s a comprehensive guide to new fashion trends for Fall 2022 to cover Penn State students from head to toe.

Autumn is a popular season for its cool weather, festivals and colorful foliage.
Each season brings a fresh set of bold and eye-catching fashion trends worth adding to your collection. I can do it.
From raspberry pinks and yellows to traditional fall browns, nudes and grays, bright and bold hues are popular in current fall fashion.
If you’re a color minimalist, let this be the season when you cross the line and add color to your outfit.
Off-white, lime green, Everest green, and bright orange are popular colors to look out for while shopping.
These are all contrasting shades that simultaneously combine our common desire to express calm and expression in a joyful way.
With the mood shifting from shorts and swimwear to warm layers, you’ll find styles for all styles at State College’s downtown stores to satisfy all tastes and cravings.
Many designer labels adopted a subversive style that permeated retail stores.
Think deconstructed knits, reworked tailoring, lots of faux leather and biker-style designs. The destructive style includes cutouts, straps, missing sections and many tube tops.
TikTok has helped popularize this trend with influencers posting DIY videos of their basic subversive creations.
At the same time, a modern wave swept the fashion industry, imbuing denim, dresses, cargo and more with a gritty punk nuance.
This season’s jeans reflect an ultra-loose fit look with a low or mid-rise waist.
Cargo pants are very popular this season. The practical design is functional and the roomy fit is comfortable.
Pants are flexible enough to be dressed up or down. Team it with chunky sneakers for a more relaxed daytime look, or pair it with heels and a crop top for an evening out.
Y2K-inspired clothing has been popular throughout the year and shows no signs of going out of style anytime soon.
The 2000 Fashion Movement recreates nostalgic fashion designs from the late 1990s and early to mid-2000s.
Tiny skirts, wide-leg denim trousers, dazzling logos, tiny purses, denim-on-denim, and copious amounts of velor fabric are back in 2000s clothing.
At the flashy end of fall trends, the richness of the jazz era was born.The pattern, adorned with rhinestones, sequins and crystals, can be easily paired with everyday jackets and boots.
Outerwear that’s perfect for show-off days also looks great, like floor-length dusters, super-oversized puffers, and oversized faux furs.
Of course, the oversized t-shirt trend isn’t going out of style anytime soon. Buy an extra large size, not big.
Overknee boots, which were popular around 2017, are back.
For men, comfort is fashion. The trendiest fall 2022 colors for men are burgundy, indigo, gray and brown tones.
An easy hack to make a decent outfit in a short amount of time is to wear cool colors underneath and combine warm colors on top. Combining neutrals with minimal pops of color is another trick.
Bomber jackets and quilted jackets are fall fashion trends for men, as are flannel.
Flannel is a classic fall item that can be worn layered or worn alone. Keeping a few flannels in your closet this fall will give you a dependable ensemble.
Baggy pants and jogger pants are great basics to match any top in your wardrobe.
Confidence is key regardless of what you wear or what fashion trends you follow. If you look good, you feel good.
