While back in United States fall weather is in force, it is still in the 80s here in Florence. However, there is a catch! The mornings and evenings are often chilly, leaving the only way to dress is in layers. This Fashionista proves that you can never go wrong with a neutral lightweight jacket to transition from summer to fall. Her beige military jacket was spot on with the upcoming cameo trend for fall. She paired the jacket with a pair of black skinny jeans, but this jacket would also look chic with a floral dress and a pair of combat boots.
The black skinny jeans were extremely flattering and help the transition from summer to fall. Every Fashionista should own one pair of black skinny jeans that make them feel good no matter their mood. The addition of the zipper pockets on her jeans helped to tie the entire look together. The Fashionista then paired a nautical stripped bustier underneath her jacket. She mastered the art of taking two different styles and combing them to make an edgy fashion statement. The combination of the preppy nautical stripe contrasted the military jacket and jeans to make a whole new style. When trying to make fashion your own, trying combining two extreme styles to create something everyone else will be trying to copy.
The outfit was finished with a great pair of neutral wedges. Her shoes look extremely comfortable and dress up the entire outfit. I loved the worn leather look and oversized buckles paired with a small wedge. Overall, her shoes were my favorite part of the look since they seemed to combine the nautical and military style in one piece.
Next time you fall into the rut of looking like every other person on campus, try taking two pieces you would never wear together and make an outfit. Who knows, you might start a new fashion trend of your own!
