Ah, and it is that time of the year again to grab your backpacks and Swell bottles, and get ready for the new school year. There is nothing quite like ripping open a new pack of pencils or finally being able to wear those distressed jeans you ordered. Before you start to hit the books, check out some favorite college student fashion trends, as witnessed at my school, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. There’s always something to spice up your wardrobe!

Trend #1: Sport Cute

Lauren just throws on her Adidas Tee to go with her denim jacket to give it a sporty but chic look. She also paired it with white Lulu lemon shorts and Steve Madden sneakers. “I love being able to throw on a t-shirt and still be able to say I look trendy, it’s like I can have me cake and eat it too,” she says. Lauren is one of the many college students who are looking for comfort when picking out their school outfits.

Trend #2: School Spirit

Being a student at UNL just means that you better know how to rock your husker gear whenever. Here we have Lauren still rocking her favorite Nebraska game day tank but also adding a light denim jacket to give it a more of an edgy look. “I LOVE the jean jacket trend, so easy to just put with anything,” she esays. We love the denim look as well, especially with some nice distressed jeans or shorts.

Trend #3: Denim Flirt

The best part of all of these girls who helped me out with this article was that I never told any of them what particularly to wear. I told them all just to come in whatever, they believe in trends. And they. All. Brought. Denim. Jackets. So I guess you can say denim is in trend. Katie decided to match her distressed denim jacket with a detailed denim skirt. The denim on denim look gives her look a whole new edge with a polished look to it as well. So, ladies, when in doubt grab your denim jacket and you are ready for the school year.
