The Scene – Welcome to the Jungle

Welcome to Bingham’s fashion scene! Now it is finally fall with the sweater weather and pumpkin spice coming in full force. With the change in weather comes the change in fashion, and here at The Scene our aim is to keep you updated on the trends and fads.

The theme for this month is “Welcome to the Jungle.” With the resurgence of animal prints and nature shirts the jungle fever is running high. Let’s keep the fashion fierce this season Miners!

FALL 2013


• Hats are in- beanies, floppy knits, even baseball caps. Just make sure you are not wearing them during school hours!

• Layering is back, but make it stream-lined with leather and military-esque basics.

• Lace and grunge is a match made in heaven this season.

• Tying a plaid shirt around your waist is the perfect way to dress down an outfit; it can also be used as an extra layer when you get cold in class, since the school is keeping the temperature at sub zero again this year.

• Animal tees/Nature shirts- but keep it tasteful so you don’t look like you actually belong in the Jungle.


• Emerald green

• Winter white

• Khaki green (a.k.a. Military green)

• Dried rose

• Yellow

• Blue Spruce

• Tomato

• Chocolate

• Cobalt

• Purple fuchsia


• Houndstooth is popular in men’s-turnedwomen’s wear.

• Animal print is BACK! Leopard is everywhere from accessories to statement pieces.

• You can never go wrong with a classic stripe.

• Plaid, plaid, plaid, plaid, plaid, plaid, plaid- it is a must-have for this season!

• Camouflage – get in touch with your inner outdoorsman.


• Channeling the 80’s with high-waisted shorts, skirts, and pants.

• Chunky knits over leggings are the definition of comfort, and are also a super cute replacement to boring old sweats.

• Peplum shirts and dresses flatter nearly everyone.

NEW: Harem pants – is this trend here to stay?

This new fad is reminiscent of Princess Jasmine and the many wives of middle-Eastern men. The question is if it can be flattering and fashionable, or if it’s just downright ridiculous. When worn with flats harem pants look a bit like pajamas, but when paired with a heel they instantly become modern and chic. Choose your footwear carefully, ladies.

MATCH OF THE MONTH: Graphic tees + leather = fashion gold

From the red carpet to the high school halls, graphic tees and leather are the perfect contrast. The silly playfulness of the tee combined with the rough-and-tumble look of the leather shows the world that you know your fashion.

Keep these trends in mind as you go shopping and get dressed in the mornings, and your outfits should be a hit.
