Chilly nights are now upon us and those sweaters you once were happy to pack away are now all you want to wear. It’s the beginning of the season where you can see how many different twists you can put on the classic sweater. I caught this Fashionista on her way to lunch and had to stop her for her effortless sweater arrangement. She captures the iconic fall ensemble from her gingham button-down layered under her lovely blue sweater to her neutral loafers. Dive into her interview below to learn more about this Fashionista’s favorite fashion tips!
Name: Whitney Wemett
CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing and where is it from?
Whitney Wemett: My blue sweater, gingham button-down and gold chain-link bracelet are from J.Crew, my dark wash jeans are Lucky, my chestnut loafers are Coach and my pearl statement necklace is from Forever 21.
CF: New York Fashion Week recently just happened, how does it inspire your sense of style?
WW: I follow many of the designers, who had shows, on Instagram, so I use a lot of their lines for ideas for my spring wardrobe. I also try to incorporate the runway trends into my looks for this season as well.
CF: How do you feel about trends? Do you embrace them or shun them?
WW: I embrace them, but add my own twist to make it more me. I make them work well with my own sense of style.
CF: That being said, which fall trend are you most looking forward to?
WW: I’m looking forward to layering. I love to layer button-downs under everything, as you can see today! I enjoy layering them under sweaters, blazers and vests. I follow fall trends so I’m excited to see other people’s take on fall because I get outfit ideas from them. I love being inspired by others!
CF: Fashionista to Fashionista, what’s your main piece of fashion advice?
WW: A bold statement necklace is always in style. You can never go wrong with that, especially if you’re looking for a way to spice up an outfit.
How To: Embrace these lovely fall days while you can, especially before it gets too cold! To do so, follow this Fashionista’s stylish example by imitating her favorite fall trend: layering. Layering is perfect for these ranging temperatures of fall. To do so, get your hands on a classic button-down. The next item is up to you. You can follow this Fashionista’s example and choose to wear a light weight sweater or you can pair a button-down with a colorfully warm vest. Match your outfit with a neutral pair of flats or riding boots to add a flair of fall. To complete the look, take this Fashionista’s piece of fashion advice to heart and throw on the perfect statement necklace. Once everything is in place, you’re all set for this lovely new season upon us.
