School is back in session for many students, and who better to give them fashion advice for the new year than Bethany Mota!

“What is in this year? Well, something that is in every year for me is oversized sweaters,” the 18-year-old explained to On Air with Ryan Seacrest on Tuesday morning. “I feel like this is the way to go if you’re running late. You can just put anything oversized on and pair it with leggings or jeans and it looks cute.

“I’ve also seen a lot of plaid recently, but not just like flannels and plaid button-up shirts,” Bethany continues. “I’ve seen a lot of plaid skirts and plaid t-shirts. That pattern is so in, especially this year, even though it is every year, I feel like they’re really hitting hard with plaid this year.”
