The weather during September seems to change every day. Some days are hot, resembling a summer day. Others are breezy; reminding us that fall is approaching. This Fashionista captures the perfect season-changing look. The neutral colors are a great transition for this time of year as we transform from bold colors to deeper colors. She also does a fantastic job mixing dressy and casual pieces.
Name: Carolyn Trillana
Major: Culinary Arts
CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing? Where are the items from?
Carolyn Trillana: I am wearing dressy shorts from Old Navy, a button-up blouse from Papaya, a casual cardigan from Forever 21 and combat boots from T.J.Maxx.
CF: Where do you get your inspiration for fashion?
CT: Most of my inspiration comes from the internet; especially, Tumblr and Pinterest. I enjoy all the different outfits that I find people wearing and I take note to see if I can make anything similar from my own closet.
CF: What is your favorite fashionable trend right now?
CT: Right now my favorite trend is high-waisted shorts with a tucked in shirt. I am also into bright colors since it is still summer and soon my fall fashion sense will be directed towards warmer colors.
CF: What investment do you want to make for the next season? Why?
CT: I NEED to own a leather jacket. It is so handy, especially in the fall, when it’s not too cold but it’s not as hot. Also, a leather jacket is very versatile since you can practically wear it with anything and still make a fashion statement.
CF: If you could meet anyone who deals with fashion who would it be? Why?
CT: I would want to meet Kylie Jenner because her style is so edgy and comfortable; If I had more money our closets would be identical. I cannot see anyone else pulling off her style as great as she does.
How To: To get this comfortable and chic look, pull out your favorite combat boots from the back of your closet. Fall is beginning! The boots are the perfect touch to the outfit by creating dimension and a stylish, casual effect. If you don’t have a pair, these Steve Madden boots are perfect!
Next, wear a lacy, light pink blouse similar to this one from Forever 21. It adds a soft feminine look to contrast with the boots. Also, the pastel reminds us that summer is not completely over with.
Complete the outfit by pairing it with dressy gray shorts which you can find at Express. The shorts enhance both the season-changing look and the feminine effect. Then, add a light-weight, loose and neutral cardigan. This one from A’GACI is perfect because it will not distract from the rest of the outfit. Accessorize this outfit by wearing stylish square earrings, your favorite watch and a homemade bracelet. Lastly, polish your nails a bright color to give the outfit some pop!
