Fall. Many people’s favorite time of year, because of pumpkins, nice weather and an added array of clothing options after months of sweltering heat. For the fashion world, fall can come to represent a pinnacle season, often determining the entire annual trend path.
In the big leagues of glossy magazines and runways, 2015 fall fashion has embraced a revitalization of nineties style. Interesting silhouettes and cuts are outfitted in suede, fringe, and earth-toned leathers, while after a near-decade of America’s skinny jean obsession flared bell-bottoms are finally making their rightful comeback.
Autumn shades of caramel, oxblood, and deep green continue to inspire in lasting pieces that make the easy transition from fall to winter (a transition that is even easier in Tucson when there’s hardly a difference weather-wise).
In terms of footwear, the eternally current ankle boot is a staple every girl needs, while updates on old classics like loafers and mules dress up any look.
The Gregory School is a place full of diverse style, regardless of what may seem current or not.
One brand that seems pretty popular at TGS is Supreme. If you’ve ever been to any of their stores, especially the one in NYC, you’d know just how popular their clothing is. There are people waiting for hours, for their new items to drop every week.
Junior Ben Siemens, who is always fashionably dressed in Supreme said, “The clothes are influenced by skating culture and bring back a lot of classic looks.”
Even though their items are quite expensive, that doesn’t affect Siemens from buying. Siemens confessed to purchasing hundreds of dollars of items from Supreme as often as, “once a week or once every other week.”
Junior Zakaria Lamri also idolizes Supreme.
“I like Supreme because I personally identify with the skater aesthetic and appreciate its fusion into high fashion,” Lamri said.
“I feel that many of their pieces are versatile and can be combined with other brands,” Lamri added.
Supreme has collaborated with major corporations and artists, such as Neil Young, The New York Yankees, Nike, and Comme Des Garcons.
Furthermore, artists like Kanye West and Tyler, The Creator have been seen wearing Supreme items.
“The clothes look good and say something to people walking by,” Siemens added.
Though the brand is 21 years old, it’s still climbing fashion’s everlasting mountain.
Freshman Chloe Goorman, someone who dresses very chic, described her style as “everyday contemporary.”
When asked what inspires her sense of style Goorman responded, “I guess I’m inspired by modern silhouettes.”
Her favorite clothing brand is Topshop, which is “a British multinational fashion retailer,” and their new 2015 fall campaign with Gigi Hadid serves up major inspiration for fall.
Sophomore Brett Meggersee embodies the fusion of athletic functionality with put-together pieces.
“I guess I have quite a preppy but more laid back kind of clothing style,” he remarked.
Meggersee, who plays a wide range of sports while particularly enjoying soccer, said “I just try to look neat-o while keeping it cool.” Meggersee’s favorite clothing stores are Tilly’s and Zumiez.
Senior Asha Ramakumar, however, takes a timeless route in her fashion endeavors. She describes her personal style as “simple and preppy.”
Ramakumar is inspired by, “neutral colors and layering.” “I love classic pieces because I can wear them so many different ways,” she said.
She finds many of her favorite pieces at the stores Theory, Vince, J. Crew, and Madewell.
Students love fall and are even happier to represent their favorite brands. As the weather gets cooler, so does the fashion sense at TGS.
