Style Advice of the Week

According to several thousand Pinterest, CollegeFashionista and personal observations, the classic white button-down and brown leather boots are this fall’s uniform. It is like an unspoken bond between Fashionistas. It is the go-to outfit in almost every Fashionista’s closet this fall, including my own. What says classy more than a polished button-down? My answer: nothing.

Polo Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger and J.Crew are just a small few that sell the classic style. The above preppy retailers are sure to have several colors and styles in their button-downs. White being the most basic color of all. I know what you are thinking, white after Labor Day? To answer that, I believe that the old-fashioned rule is dated. White is the new black this fall and winter. Do not let anyone tell you otherwise.

Brown leather boots have so many styles and shades to choose from, making it impossible to not find a pair that suits you. Brown leather boots to Fashionistas currently are comparable to UGG boots to tweens. Every Fashionista has or has had a pair of UGG boots and we all know they are slowly falling off the board of style, but not to worry if you are still sporting them to classes. Macy’s and Nordstrom are two of the biggest leather boot suppliers in shopping malls today. If you are trying to dump the UGG boots for a new fashionable boot, check out one of the above department stores and you will surely find a perfect fit.

This Fashionista has pulled all of my style advice together this week for the ultimate fall basics with her own little twist with accessories. With this look being so basic it is easy to mimic with limited knowledge of style and trends. Finding brown leather boots and a white button-down in a shopping mall is as easy as finding produce in a grocery store. Don’t let the hectic holiday shopping intimidate you when shopping for this look. You will be in and out in no time because these pieces are so basic and easy to find. I hope all of you readers had a wonderful Thanksgiving and have a happy holiday season!
