Spring 2011 Androgynous College Fashion Accessories

These fashion staples know no bounds. Gender shmender…this stuff is hot, period.

The Ray Ban Wayfarers

This is by no means a new trend, these babies have had several comebacks in the last 50 years.  In the 1960’s with Breakfast at Tiffany’s and again in the 1980’s with The Blues Brothers and Risky Business.

Note: For the vast majority of college students who can’t afford the real deal…knock offs can be found at just about every retail store.


The Ray Ban Aviators

These aren’t new either, in fact, they are officially a classic.  Even though the Wayfarer is sort of stealing it’s thunder right now, the Ray Ban Aviators aren’t losing any steam, they’re still a fan favorite.

The Straw Trilby Hat

Note: The trilby resembles, and is often confused with, the fedora. The only difference is that the trilby has a slightly smaller brim.


The Horn-Rimmed Eyeglasses

Looking nerdy has never looked so cool. No prescription required.

Spring 2011 College Fashion Trends for Women

The Feather Earring(s)

Last year suede and fringe were huge, so it was only a matter of time before we saw feathers. Best worn on one ear, a la 80’s Madonna.

The Belt

Much like the scarf, the belt will be the it accessory for every outfit this spring. You name it…beach cover-up, jeans, dress, sweater, shorts…add a belt for an instant style upgrade!

The Structured Black Hat

Whether your look is boho, retro or rock, the black hat is bound to make it’s way to the forefront of your spring wardrobe.  The Derby or Bowler, The Fedora,  The Gambler, The Trilby, The Outback, The Porkpie or Be-Bop,  The Floppy Bohemian  – this trend hardly discriminates. It’s all very Brigitte Bardot.

The Layered Gold Jewelry

It’s all about mixing and matching – short with long, thin with chunky, feathers with medalions, and so it goes.

Also, good news for those college budgets, last spring’s cat shades, cross-body bags, boyfriend jeans and mixed bangles – all still in!

Fall 2010 College Fashion Trends for Women

The Legging

This isn’t really a news flash, leggings have been “in” for a couple of seasons now. However, they took a mini vacay for the summer, and are back in a big way for fall with lots to choose from: shiny ones, patterned ones, and good old fashioned black ones. A note to wearers…your shirt must be long enough to cover your bum…it’s the law.

The Jegging

Leggings + Jeans = Jeggings

The Legging has been so popular that it has joined forces with it’s equally popular counterpart, The Skinny Jean, to create an über pant…and thus The Jegging was born. It’s a perfect match for the staple fall boots and sweaters. Note to wearers… the same long shirt law applies to The Jegging…there are no exceptions.

The Faux Fur Vest

We have Rachel Zoe to thank for this old retro look exploding back onto the scene. This dances the very thin line between fashionable and costume-y. But, if you can pull it off, then it’s one super fabulous “boho-chic” fall piece.

The Scarf

Hands down the best fall accessory.  Scarves go with EVERYTHING and they can make an ordinary outfit stylish (with very little effort).

The Fringe Boot

Fringe is so hot right now, so it’s no surprise that this includes boots. In fact, I predict it’s about to take over every girls fall/winter fave (which, incidentally, happens to be every man’s least favorite girl fall/winter staple)…that’s right…you heard it hear first(ish),  Kettle Black is the new Ugg.

Pictured: Lauren Conrad and Vanessa Hudgens sporting Kettle Black Koolaburra Triple Fringe Boots.


The Biker Boot

The Biker Boot is the other favorite boot for fall, this flat boot is usually studded or buckled and goes great with other “biker-chic” accessories like The Studded Hobo and The Leather Jacket. All across the land sorority girls and reality starlets alike will be able to look as bad as they wanna be, without having to throw a leg up on a hog. And that my friends, is what fashion is all about.

Summer 2010 College Fashion Trends for Women

The Braid
From the beach to the runway, the versatile look is on everybody’s mane. If, like me, you never learned to French braid…now’s the time to learn!

The Floral

This trend dances a very fine line between fashion forward and dated. Layer the florals with a cute jacket or knit to keep from looking too Laura Ashley.

The Romper

The jumpsuit just got a summer makeover and it’s going to be showing off all over town! Not for everyone, the romper can be great paired with the right attitude and accessories.
