Spending a lot of money on an article of clothing isn’t exactly ideal. I love a good bargain especially when it comes to my pocket and looking good. Going thrift shopping is great way to find super stylish retro fashion and often times they are heavy articles of clothing that you can wear for fall! But say one might  have the luxury to spend a little more on clothing but does not want to spend all of your money, places such as Target and H&M are great places to find fashionable fall clothing.

Though some may dress fashion over function or comfort over style, 2018 fall fashion has great trends for all. Let’s talk colors! No one can go wrong with a nice maroon, brown, or dark yellow. These colors will add a little pop and dimension to all outfits! For all of those ladies looking to branch out a bit, but want to stay comfortable, A simple blue, high rise jean that is distress at the knees, a form fitting shirt, long cotton cardigan, with a pair of converse or vans, or booties will do your outfit. During this fall season, expect to see a lot of layers! Layers are good way to add dimension to any outfit. For example, say its a nippy day out and want to be bundled up but fashionable. You can wear a regular tee, a flannel, and a jean jacket to go over to ensure that not only is someone warm, they look super cute.

Now on our campus we can see students and teachers dressing in great fashion. The people featured in these pictures show Tolleson what best dressed truly is.
