10 Fall Fashion MUST-HAVES For Every College Girl's Closet

Fall is the best season, especially for fashion.

The weather is not too hot and not too cold which leaves options wide open for what to wear. If you do not have the following clothing items in your closet, you better go shopping quick. These are MUST HAVES for the fall season.

1. Booties

These booties make any outfit look totally put together. They can be dressed up with nice pants, a dress, or a skirt, OR you can dress them down with a simple pair of skinny jeans. I am loving this pair from Kohl's. They are a basic color that can go with almost everything and have cute floral embroidery on the back of them.

2. An Oversized Sweater

It is finally sweater weather again (aka the most wonderful time of the year). You will live in sweaters for pretty much the whole season, and maybe even the next one! The comfiest sweaters are oversized like this one from Urban Outfitters. You can chill in your bed in these all day or pair them with riding boots or booties and dress them up.

3. A Denim Jacket

Perfect for that “not too hot, not too cold” weather. The hardest part is choosing what color and style however if you want just your basic denim jacket go for this one from Forever 21 (it’s only $20!). Denim jackets go with anything and everything and will keep you looking super stylish this fall. For an edgy look pair with a vintage concert tee.

4. Ripped Jeans

Ripped jeans are a must for fall. These ones from pacsun are not too distressed to the point that you may or may not be homeless, but just have a touch of distressing at the jeans to add a casual feel to your outfit. This dark wash is the wash to wear in the winter and will pair perfectly with a cute pair of booties.

5. An Oversized Flannel

PRO TIP: buy a men's flannel for ultimate comfort. I have this one from LL Bean (it’s on sale right now!) and I LIVE in this. It is best paired with a simple tank top underneath and a pair of jeans or leggings. It is great to throw on if you are chilly in your dorm room or need something to put on over your “going out” outfit. This is an absolute MUST.

6. Black Jeans

As the weather gets colder the wash of your jeans should get darker. These black skinny jeans from Hollister would look super cute with a sweater or flannel on top. Also, black jeans with no rips will make you look more professional and sleek, especially if paired with flats.

7. A Cardigan

Cardigans are perfect for throwing over dresses or wearing over a tank top. If you have a summery dress that you can’t seem to part ways with this fall, throwing a cardigan over it will surely make your dress look appropriate for the season. This one from Forever 21 is simple, and a great length.

8. A Scarf

Scarves are a perfect accessory for any fall outfit. This one from Charlotte Russe is only about $5 and they have so many different colors. Scarves pair perfect with a cardigan and keep you warm in the chilly fall weather.

9. Riding Boots

These boots from DSW are exactly what you need to pair with your skinny jeans and leggings this fall. This brown color is also perfectly crafted for the season. The buckles on these boots really adds more fashion to these. However, there are millions of boots to choose from with all different colors and buckles and zippers.

10. A Vest

Vests are made for the fall weather. You can’t really wear them in the winter because it is too cold and it will overheat you in the summer. They pair perfectly with a flannel or a buttoned up plaid shirt. This one from Patagonia is a little on the expensive side but definitely worth your money. Plus black goes with everything!

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
