Binghamton has already transitioned from fall to frigid. Cold, gray skies and sporadic snow showers are increasingly common. But for the cherished Indian summer, a day of unusual warmth, it’s essential to dress sensibly without losing your autumnal flair.
Today’s Fashionista, Gladys Guerrero, wears a Native American-inspired tribal print sweater for this occasion. Instead of breaking out your denim cut-offs, keep in mind summer is long gone and a pair of jeans, leggings or tights is the way to go. This Fashionista also rocks distressed leather boots and a fringed scarf, along with ornate gold earrings for a chic finish.
