The changing of seasons is upon us, especially in Ithaca where the temperature can drop twenty-five degrees over night. Extreme transitions are necessary when the possibility of going to class in ninety-degree weather and leaving in a hailstorm is highly possible. A relaxed pair of corduroys and a vintage style graphic T-shirt are perfect for layering and facing whatever is coming your way, whether it’s a rainstorm or a pop quiz.
This week’s Fashionisto was spotted taking a nod from the changing colors around him. With a mix of warmer shades, make sure that you coordinate hues that compliment and brighten each other while still popping. Classics like Levi’s cords will always exude a collegiate vibe, while allowing a more urban feel to any outfit. When looking for a pair of shoes that show you take your style seriously yet can still be relaxed, Clark Desert boots in any kind of earth tone blend are the perfect choice.
A fun way to let your look do the talking is rocking a trendy T-shirt that literally does just that. Any vintage or thrift store will have hidden one of a kind gems, but True Religion and Obey always have witty choices as well. Never let the shorter days of fall and layers deter you from be as trendsetting as ever. Toss on a vest and a scarf just in case, and let your fashion sense rise as the leaves begin to fall.
Hint: If you feel as if your style is too vibrant for the darker shades popping up as leaves fall down, invest in a statement piece accessories. Brands like Clark’s and J. Crew have traditional maroon, navy and chocolate boots and oxford, but always have a few wildcards in eccentric prints. Adding one pattern to an otherwise understated yet stylish September look will give everyone else around you the autumn chills – in a good way.
