Castaic Students Fall Into Their Fall Vibes With Their Wardrobe


Each year, new fashion trends arise as seasons begin and end. With the chilly days arriving, it is clear that fall has officially begun, also marking the beginning of fall attire peeking out. Fashion trends can become controversial, so we surveyed students in all grades at Castaic High School to gauge the student’s opinion on this season’s trends. 

According to the survey, 129 out of the 223 students surveyed chose sweatpants as their favorite fall fashion staple, making it the most popular answer. Sweatpants are a great piece for fall fashion. They keep you warm and cozy, but can also be dressed up so they don’t look too comfortable. Kimberly Hernandez, a freshman, adds that sweatpants are a must for her fall wardrobe. 

“They’re comfy and keep me warm!” says Hernandez.

Another top trend was flannels. Ranging from different colors and materials, flannels are a wonderful addition to any fall wardrobe. They can spice up any outfit by layering them on top of different shirts, or being worn buttoned up. 

“Flannels…have become constants in my wardrobe, especially in the fall,” says senior Jack Teoli. “I’ve always liked the look. It has an old Californian look to it in my opinion.”

Senior Syrai Piper agrees that flannels are the perfect staple. 

“I can pair these with any fall fit,” explains Piper. “They’re perfect for keeping me warm. Not too hot, not too cold.”

Another popular yet controversial option are UGG boots. UGG boots have become very popular as years pass and more and more people wear them each year. But, there’s an on-going debate on whether these are fashionable or appalling. 

“I like UGG boots because they’re comfortable,” comments Yves Frost. 

Senior Debbie Torres-Chavarria agreed, adding that “Fall outfits [are] all about feeling comfortable and sometimes sneakers can feel like a lot. UGGS are easy to put on and add a sense of warmth and simplicity to an outfit.” 

But, UGG boots aren’t for everyone. Sophomore Izzy Diaz and junior Cherish Hughes are two of the many people who agree that UGG boots aren’t for them. 

“UGG boots are the ugliest thing I’ve ever seen,” remarks Diaz. “They are distasteful and bring a pain to my eyes.”

“They are overused and basic,” says Hughes. 

Sometimes, it’s hard to piece together a nice outfit that pairs well with the weather. To find inspiration, students search the internet or go to influencers and celebrities on social media.

“I’ve always liked the way John Fogerty dresses from the band Creedence Clearwater Revival,” says Jack Teoli.

Rory Gilmore, a fictional character from the show Gilmore Girls is widely known to have  exceptional outfits that seem to have a big influence on what many people wear during the fall.

“I think she has the perfect fall wardrobe,” adds Tayla Salazar, senior.

Rocking the low-rise flared jeans with cropped long-sleeved shirts, it’s the perfectly aesthetically-pleasing look for any cooler days. 

Pinterest, an app “designed to enable saving and discovery of information like recipes, home, style, motivation, and inspiration,” is used by many to fuel their fashion inspiration and to find the perfect fall outfit. 

“My fall fashion inspiration is definitely pinterest!” states junior Jordan Silver. “It always has the perfect outfits for the weather.”

Similarly, freshman Cassandra Garingan agrees that Pinterest is the way to go.

“I don’t look for a specific influencer, however I do get all my fashion theory from Pinterest.”

Fall fashion, or any type of fashion, is all about what makes you feel good and comfortable. While flared jeans and cardigans are taking over the autumn season, we await what fashion trends arrive with the winter season.
