It’s sometimes difficult to let go of your favorite pieces in your summer wardrobe. This week’s Fashionista shows us how you can wear your high-waisted jean shorts while still incorporating fall trends. In her cut-off short shorts and motorcycle boots she makes a statement that the sunny season is not over yet. However, when she pairs them with a chunky oversized sweater, she proves that she is very aware of what’s in trend for the fall.

CollegeFashionista: You do a great job forecasting fall trends even in this hot weather, what’s your secret?
Taylor Evangelist: Well, hard to do when it’s ninety degrees and you’re sitting in a sticky classroom all day. Mostly, I just stick with wearing my favorite shorts like these ones, and then pair them with either fall boots or a cute, light jacket.
CF: I am obsessed with your sweater, where did you get it?
TE: Urban Outfitters, I find all of my great steals there. It’s a good place to find trendy pieces without breaking the bank.
CF: What are you most excited about wearing from your fall wardrobe?
TE: My boots! I love my tall over-the-knee boots. I wear them with everything, they are so easy to dress up and down.
How To: Finding it challenging to break away from your summer wardrobe? This Fashionista found the perfect solution: wear your summer pieces to keep cool and then mix one fall piece in at a time. Whether it’s your favorite leopard sweater paired with shorts as shown here or even your corduroy skinnies with a tank and sandals, you can find the perfect balance for the season.
