Ryerson students are bringing Fall 2013 runway looks to Gould Street’s yellow walkway as they head back to class this September. Dapper menswear, tweed jackets and whimsical sweater skirt combos are just a few of the designer-originated trends students are making their own.

GQ says blue was one of the most popular menswear colours on fall 2013 runways. Second year accounting student, Syed Sohail, incorporates a sky blue hue into his daily prep-inspired wardrobe. “My style muse is Nick Wooster of Neiman Marcus,” Syed said, adding that he likes to stick to classic styles when heading to class because he likes to be prepared for any situation.

Menswear fabrics are also popping up on women’s coats, dresses and accessories this season. First-year theatre production student Christine Luksts followed suit with a straight-cut tweed jacket paired with a feminine ethereal salmon-coloured dress.

With the summer months coming to a close, sundresses are being replaced with comfy flowing skirt and sweater combinations. First-year creative industries student Brianna Hoy rocked a sea-foam cable knit sweater, A-Line graphic skirt, and suede ankle boots while doing some reading in the quad.
