As warm summer afternoons spent poolside slowly fade into brisk autumn mornings spent commuting to school, Blazers, like the changing colors of the leaves, begin to make alterations to their wardrobes. And even though the temperature is starting to drop, these autumn trends are sure to keep Blazers looking hot. Once again, the fashion experts of SilverChic have collected golden clothing ideas that Blazers are sure to fall for.

Always a great staple for an outfit, scarves are a must have this fall. But why not spice up your outfit by adding the versatility of a circle scarf! These flexible scarves can be worn in countless ways depending on the creativity of the wearer, and, most importantly, they keep bare necks and ears warm on those dreaded, cold morning commutes.

Out:
Personality glasses are no longer necessary for showing that you have a personality. Ditch the faux frames and, as Tyra says, try smiling with your eyes.

Shoulders
In:
This fall itís all about mixing, matching and layering. Donít be afraid to be bold and pair your favorite t-shirt with a baggy cardigan and a long necklace. Be brave, and experiment until youíve found a look thatís sure to blow away any leaf pile.

Itís time to punch ponchos out of your fall wardrobe. Rather than try to bring back an itchy trend that leaves you shapeless, try a baggy, vintage sweater that will actually provide your body with warmth and style.

Knees
In:
Jeans or leggings? Fortunately, it doesnít have to be such a painstaking decision anymore! Jeggings are a new autumn trend that appear to be jeans but are actually made out of nylon legging material. Not only are these legging-pants the most stylish thing to hit legs this fall, but they can provide all-day comfort for Blazers.

Out:
This fall, dress to impress and ditch the holey, torn-up jeans. And though the the trees are changing colors, your jeans should not; avoid bleached or embellished jeans in order to maintain a sleek and sophisticated fall look.

Blazers will be hitting Blairís hallways in oxfords this season. Available in various styles, colors and designs, oxfords are easy to slip on and provide long-lasting comfort for navigating Blairís hallways.

Out:
Although every girl needs a reliable pair of boots to compliment her favorite autumn outfit, leave the studs and the detailing for other foot fashions - super-studded boots are so out. And do remember: Your boots are made for walking, not suffocating, so save your thighs and donít let your boots surface past your knees!
