For college students on the best coast (in more formal circles known as the west coast) late fall isn’t a time filled with panic due to the need to find the perfect winter coat that isn’t too bulky but is also warm. We don’t really have to stock up on thick scarves or thermal gloves because our temperatures barley dip below 75 degrees. Thanks to Mother Nature, Fashionistas all over Cali can keep that endless summer going by pairing our new fall coats and cardigans over our summer favorites.
This Fashionista’s outfit is a perfect example of what to wear during the start of the “winter” months in SoCal. Her dark wash denim shorts, white sneakers, sheer cotton tank and long blonde tresses are the epitome of summer cool. But paired with the cream cropped jacket, this Fashionista can stay warm when walking across the quad when the wind suddenly hits or in a classroom where the air conditioner has yet to be turned off. Her vintage-inspired sunnies and minimalist rings are great accessories to a simple yet chic outfit. To get her look pick out your favorite summer outfit and pair it with a fall jacket like this River Island cream colored faux fur bomber jacket.
Unfortunately, we can’t all have this Fashionsta's wavy blonde hair, but with a few good products, we can mimic the beach hair look. To emulate surfer girls and Victoria Secret models try using Bumble and Bumble’s surfer spray. This is a salt-water based spray that will give your hair full volume, and that gorgeous windblown look that seems only achievable after spending all day in the ocean waves. For anyone with a wild mane, make sure to tame it using a good de-frizzing cream. You can use Bumble and Bumble’s defrizz product that makes fly-aways and frizz disappear. Girls with thick or curly hair can try Ouidad’s climate control heat & humidity gel to stop the dreaded frizz from even making an appearance. So even if you don’t have a beach near you, these products can at least help you to pretend that you do.
