5 Must-Have Style Trends for Teens This Fall

Style Savvy 37

Lauren conrad KohlsI absolutely adore back-to-school time. No -- I myself am not heading back to an educational setting nor do I have kids I'm sending to class, either. But who cares!? I adore everything about office supplies and jump at the chance to sneak into those major stock-up stores for their back-to-school sales. Even more than the scent of fresh paper and No. 2 pencils, I absolutely adore back-to-school shopping.

All the stores have sales. Boots are back, long sleeves are in, and holy moly do the sight of leggings and fall colors make me weak in the knees.

Check out these fall trends teens are rockin' this back-to-school season:

1. Colored denim: See Lauren Conrad up there lookin' fine in light pink pants? Say hello to one of fall's biggest back-to-school trends. Our tip: Trade in some of summer's brighter colored denim pieces for something a little more subdued in the classroom.

2. Mixing prints: Did you check out Kylie and Kendall Jenner covering Seventeen magazine's September issue? The youngest Dash dolls are totally rockin' a must-do for fall: mixing patterns. Make sure to stick to the same color family, throw a few neutral accessories into the mix, and you'll be good as gold.

3. Brooches: I know, you hear the word brooch and you instantaneously think of your grandmother's old dingy wardrobe. I swear, stores everywhere are piling on the pinnables in funky, cute styles that can seriously spruce up your teen's fall wardrobe. Pin them to a plain shirt to jazz things up, or decorate a favorite bag.

4. Patent flats: Who doesn't love a little shine, eh? Patent flats are everywhere this back to school season, and you can get 'em for cheap, too. Wear 'em with a skirt of a pair of capris so you can show off your shine.

5. Patchwork: Teens everywhere are channeling their inner boho princess by rockin' the patchwork look. Try this new style by grabbing a fun new bag or a stylish pant.

What trends are you shopping for this back to school season?

Shouldn't teens be picking out their own clothes? I mean, I'll take my mom shopping with me sometimes and ask for opinions but the last time she picked out my clothes I was ten. Also, I don't focus Ailey on trends but more how the clothes fit me. I'm twenty and can still shop in juniors but I don't wanna look like a teeny bopper.
