It is September and it is already getting a bit chilly! But that doesn’t stop Fashionistas from wearing their summery dresses just one more time. A great way to transition into fall weather is by pairing a flowy summer dress with boots instead of sandals. Boots are definitely a fall fashion trend must. Let us see how this week’s Fashionista styles her boots-dress combo.
Name: Alie Messler
CollegeFashionista: Tell me where you got each piece of your outfit.
Alie Messler: My dress is from Free People. I absolutely love that store. My shoes are Jeffrey Campbell and all this arm candy is Michael Kors. Most of what I buy is online. Here in Dallas, there aren’t many places to shop. There is one boutique in Scranton that sells Free People clothing and Jeffrey Campbell shoes, but that is pretty much it.
CF: Are you excited to try any new fall fashion trends?
AM: I definitely want to get more ankle boots. I’ve also been seeing a lot of cropped pants.
CF: Where do you look for fashion inspiration?
AM: I’ve been getting Vogue (USA), Marie Claire and InStyle for years. I love the recent Vogue issue with the Jennifer Lawrence cover! But my favorite model and fashion inspiration is Cara Delevingne. It is great seeing her on and off the runway. So many models are seen in ad campaigns.
CF: Describe your style in three words.
AM: Relaxed, flowy and earth tones.
CF: If you could go on a shopping spree to one store, which one would it be and why?
AM: Free People! I love everything they sell there. It is so beautiful and fits my style perfectly.
How To: For a similar bohemian outfit, head over to one of my favorite stores, Free People! Just like Alie, I love the beautiful collection of dresses Free People sells. Combine one with a pair of chic ankle boots. Add a watch and a bracelet or two and you are ready for class.
