Fall is the time of year that rolls around where leaves are not the only things that are changing. With the weather cooling down, Halloween approaching, and Clyde’s season upon us, students have to accommodate for the chill of the new season by altering their everyday wardrobe choices.
Popular fashion trends this season include cardigans, bomber jackets, and jean skirts. This transition time between two seasons can be difficult to stay warm while wearing fashionable outfits. Adding layers to any look can consist of a flannel, sweater, or cardigan. Accessorising with knee high socks, and scarves can make an outfit more intricate and bold while staying warm at the same time. Students at WHS have been dressing to impress and displaying their latest fall outfits. All while staying warm and adapting to the temperature alterations.
How students dress for this time of year is fascinating to see, while they compensate for the dropping temperatures.
