Fashionista's say that jewel tones are here to stay. Amethyst,Topaz,and Sapphire pair well with the popular Emerald green.

     This season is all about making a statement without any words. Oversized (Menswear inspired) and Statement outwear are great ways for you to stay warm and fashionable during the treacherous winter months.

   Cheetah, leopard, plaid, and herringbone prints are as classic as it gets. Don't dessert them so soon for something new! These classic prints are timeless.

 The punk look is making its come back this year. Leather jackets with lots of zippers and buckles is a great way for you to express your inner punk rock star.

Last but not least, The peplum. This curvaceous item has been maintaining its popularity as a top must have trend for sometime now. This fall peplum's are an easy way to enhance your outfit from casual to dressy; or somewhere in between.

What could be better for a fashion student's wardrobe (and wallet) than a designer garment at an affordable price? Nothing. That's why we love Target's designer collaborations; making it possible for us harrowing college kids to add a little high fashion label to our closets without breaking the bank.
