It’s not fall just yet; however, these summer days are passing us by quickly. The sudden weather change is in full effect. With the chilly morning breeze and the dark gray skies, it’s time to start thinking about fall trends.
This Fashionista is sporting a high-waisted silhouette that will flood our closets this fall. Whether this style applies to a pair of pants or skirt, it will highlight our urge to purchase lots of oversized tops and biker jackets. Along with concentrating on different silhouettes, we can look forward to paisley and baroque prints.

CollegeFashionista: What inspired your outfit for today?
Jasmine Johnson: I’m definitely dressed appropriately for the weather change that’s been going on. It has been a little bit chillier than usual. So, I decided to pull my look together with this Chicago Bulls leather jacket. I’m wearing a nice black crop-top with fitted high-waisted, just in case the weather decides to lighten up throughout the day. I also had to lace up my Nike Air Diamond Turf II sneakers. Sandals would have not done this jacket justice.
CF: How would you describe your style?
JJ: My style ranges from form-fitting and sassy to sporty and comfortable.
CF: Has anyone ever referenced your style to a celebrity?
JJ: Yes! My hair used to be longer than what it is now. So, after I cut my hair everyone thought I resembled Rihanna. This came to my advantage because Rihanna is one of the few celebrities that looks good in anything she wears.
CF: Have any summer trends been taking over your wardrobe?
JJ: I’m already a fan of crop tops, but this summer it’s been a “crop top craze.” I love the different patterns and colors. I think they can be paired with just about anything. I especially love to match them with high-wasted pants or shorts to show off my slim waist.
CF: What fall 2013 trends are you looking forward to?
JJ: I like the silhouettes for fall. Clothes are either tight and sassy or loose and Bohemian. Both sides are exciting to include in my wardrobe. I can see that thrift items might be favored for this upcoming season.
