Besides seeing the beautiful colors of the leaves changing around Purdue’s campus, Halloween and the pumpkin spiced latte from Starbuck’s, October is also one of my favorite months because I love dressing for it. It’s the perfect weather because I don’t start sweating on my walk to class, but I don’t freeze either. Since it’s still relatively warm out, I’ve recently been transitioning my wardrobe from summer to fall by combining loose sweaters with skirts. Thanks to Macy’s, I’ve been able to add to my collection with their variety of brands in the mstylelab department.
My first outfit has a bit of a ‘90s grunge feel to it. A light jacket is one item that every Fashionista should have in their closet for the fall months. It’ll keep you warm as the weather cools down, but isn’t bulky like a winter coat. This hooded military anorak by American Rag is perfect for back to school. I paired it with a brown American Rag skater skirt, XOXO long sleeve lace crop top and burgundy Dr. Marten boots. What I like about this outfit is you can easily go from day to night by simply removing the jacket.
I’m a big fan of neutral colors for this season, and American Rag had an amazing selection of earth tone pieces. The easy bohemian feel is what made it one of my favorite brands at Macy’s mystylelab. One particular piece I fell in love with was this long sleeve striped sweater. I liked it so much that I couldn’t refrain from using it in two of my looks. It is comfortable and versatile, making it the perfect sweater for just throwing on when you’re in a hurry. I first paired it with a pair of olive skinny jeans by American Rag. When worn with sandals it is an ideal ensemble for running errands or just hanging out with friends on the weekend.
My last outfit is something that I would wear to class while the weather is still warm out. What I love about fall is getting layers on layers of clothing so that is exactly what I did with this American Rag sweater and a dress from my own closet. It’s a light, flowy outfit and every bit as comfortable as yoga pants and a t-shirt, but looks a lot more put together. I paired it with flats, but these XOXO boots would also make it a great fall outfit.
Being true to your own personal style is important when it comes to being confident in how you dress. Macy’s mystylelab will help you discover your personal style and make a statement with your wardrobe as you go back to school. There are so many great brands available and I am so thrilled I had the opportunity to style some of my favorites. I found a lot of great transition pieces that I know I’ll be wearing all the time throughout this semester. I can’t wait to go back and check out all of the other great items that mystylelab has to offer.
