Hello September! Sweater weather is officially here and it’s time to prepare our wardrobe (and minds) for new fall trends that will keep us both looking and feeling hot no matter what temperature it is outside.
This week’s Fashionista is rocking one of my favorite, edgy outfit combos: denim on denim. Wearing two of the same fabric can be difficult but the key is all in the different washes of denim. Seen here, this Fashionista is wearing a dark wash pair of skinny jeans paired it with a light wash denim button-down. This look is an instant classic when the right shades of denim are combined together.
Also, check out this Fashionista’s patent leather ballet flats. Chic and comfortable is the way to go when you have to walk the streets of Pittsburgh all day long. Also, throw on some cute sunnies and a practical yet stylish bag for class like this Fashionista’s maroon Longchamp, and you’re ready to go to class.
As the weather starts to drop you might find that flats just don’t do the job in keeping your feet warm so try switching out the flats for riding boots for some extra warmth. Also, always remember to keep layering in mind if you live in fluctuating temperatures. A cardigan or lightweight jacket or blazer over this denim top will add some cute layers to help you transition into colder weather.
Fashionistos, you can easily wear this ensemble as well! Stick to my advice with mixing different shades of denim and try wearing this outfit with a light military style jacket and some new fall boots. You’ll be just as stylish as the girls without even trying.
Remember, looking fashionable is second in importance to dressing weather appropriate so it’s time to start layering your favorite oversized sweaters and man-cardigans, and of course, all the denim you can find. Don’t be scared to mix textures and fabrics because taking a chance with fashion is definitely in this fall!
