 What’s Trending:
    • Printed skinny pants — especially at geeky “flood pant” length above the ankles


    • A touch of fur — or go all out with a fur coat, but keep it fresh and funky


    • Plaid and stripes — worn separately or maybe even together


    • Pretty floral print dresses for special occasions


    • White, men’s style undershirts worn as shirts — can be layered under a plaid shirt too


    • Layers! — They’re big this fall, so have some fun dreaming up new outfit combos from your back to school separates


    • Peplum waists on dresses — you know, the kind that are tight at the smallest part of the waist then have a circle of pleated material around them


    • Geeky high necks — turtlenecks and button-up shirts as well as scarves around the neck too


    • Turquoise, teal, pink, orange, white, purple, tan, rust, emerald green and butterscotch yellow

Trendy Back to School Glasses for Guys:

According to Jonathan Bell at, “the biggest shift in eyewear over the past two or three years is the renaissance of plastic frames.” This is true for Fall 2013 fashion for men (as well as women) and Bell goes on to say that overall, today’s plastic frames are larger but “less cumbersome” fit-wise than they once were. Zenni has oodles of comfortable, trendy, stylish plastic frames at awesome prices from just $6.95 that will be bound to leave you plenty left in your budget for your other back to school necessities.
