Fall Campus Style Guide

By resident stylist, Jorden Jakobs

Looking for ensembles that exude ease, professionalism and style this school year? Help has arrived! Follow my Campus Style Guide to learn how to blend the forecasted Fall & Winter 2022 trends with practical outfits so that you’re fashion ready for your next big trip, class or event. My tips and tricks will ensure you’re dressed for success going into the first quarter! Without further ado, let’s talk about the top three trends of FW22—Blazers, Puffer Jackets and Cardigans.  

 

Blazers—the ultimate statement of professionalism and comfort. Wear this simple, beautiful piece with ease, sure to have you paying more attention to notes in class than adjusting your clothing. This style is dressing for the job you want after graduation without going full business attire. Just add a simple blouse and pant to complete this cool and confident look. The goal here is for the blazer to pop out as the statement piece. Look for blazers that catch your eye in fit, color and pattern—something you can wear on repeat in different combinations. Finally, complete your blazer outfit with Chooka’s versatile, weather-friendly boots—perfect for elevating your style in all the Fall & Winter elements.

 


 

Next up! Cute, cozy and casual cardigans with the perfect accessory—coffee. This look is for the days when we value those extra 30 minutes of sleep and need to dress in a hurry. Keep it simple with these 5 steps to dress:

  1. T-SHIRT. Take your pick of plain or graphic tee.
  2. PANT. Rock your best light wash mom jeans.
  3. LONG CARDIGAN. Pick your favorite cozy piece.
  4. BOOTS. Step into the Chooka Chelsea Bootie for this look. Linked below!
  5. ACCESSORIES. Simple jewelry of your own—necklace, earrings and rings.

And now you have just enough time to stop at your local coffee stand before class! Check out the links below for more outfit inspiration.

As the season is changing, we will have some cold days ahead. The Puffer Jacket will be a staple in your outfit routine throughout the week and into Winter. This jacket will keep you warm as you walk through campus in the wind and rain, while not compromising on the style of your outfit. You can feel free to wear your classroom attire as you wish knowing you will be warm in between classes. I would recommend choosing a Puffer Jacket color closest to the color palette in your closet for versatility. Chooka's Puffer Jacket is sleek, weather protectant, and sure to match every outfit throughout your Fall and Winter quarters!

I hope your mind is churning with inspiration and ways to add your own personal taste to the trends I've listed in this guide. I fully believe in dressing for success. There is so much power that comes from feeling confident and comfortable in your own clothing. I appreciate Chooka for having so many forward-thinking boot options. No matter the season, you can travel from home, class, and study in fashionable urban style.
