The leaves have fallen, and t-shirt weather is no more.
Wardrobes are changing and bulking up as well.
Of course, the classic fall staples like flannels and North Face jackets will always be in style, but 2016 has some new options for both guys and girls looking to change up their style a bit.
Instead of a puffy down coat, try a fishtail parka.
They provide the same weather protection as a down jacket but offer less bulkiness and look slimmer on the body.
The most popular of colors for parkas are black and olive green, but navy blue, maroon or even camo options will always be appropriate in the colder seasons.
For all genders, it can be difficult deciding on an outfit that will keep you warm, while not too hot indoors.
The perfect solution for this is the cardigan.
Cardigans are subtle but can pull a simple outfit such as a button up shirt and jeans together and provide extra warmth outside.
With cardigans, it is best to buy a color that will be versatile for a number of different outfits, so primary colors will always work. However, more earth tone options also work, such as a light grey or a camel tan.
Senior Addy Schefter loves her cardigans in the winter.
“They’re comfortable and easy to throw on,” said Shefter.
Footwear is something many find to be a struggle around this time of year because it is difficult to find a shoe that will take on the winter, but also look nice.
Boots will always be in style around this time of year and will continue to be forever.
Classic options such as the combat style Doc Martins can be a commonly used wardrobe piece, but for those looking to take a more classic route, Timberland boots offer an iconic look and hold up very well to the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Junior Chris Norris is an avid fan of Timberland’s boots.
“Timbs aren’t just a boot. Timbs are a lifestyle,” says Norris.
A surprising turn in fashion in 2016 has been the return of the cargo pants.
For years they’ve been mocked and ignored, but now they are coming out of the dark and are cementing their place in the fashion world.
Subtle chino style cargo pants with classic blue collar colors, such as gray, brown, navy blue or dark green, fitting into a variety of outfits without having to look bulky or uncomfortable.
Many feel dressing in the winter only has to be about staying warm and dry, but you can still achieve that while looking great.
