I love a good pile of leaves. To me, there is no color combination more beautiful than that of fall foliage. Burnt orange, bright red, butter yellow and brown blend in a way that has me dreaming of college football games and crisp air. As many people are transitioning into the colder weather with more subdued clothing hues like dark burgundy and gray, I cannot help but welcome a cheerful pop of seasonal color. Enter this Fashionista, ready for class with her oversized bright red bag. It takes center stage second only to her beaming smile. What makes this look so on point for the season is that it has balance. I am not eager to claim that this vibrant accessory goes with everything. The bag would be overkill with, say, bright yellow jeans or a pink pullover. Her willingness to let the bag be her look allows for an individuality that isn’t over the top.
This Fashionista’s clothing is perfect for a casual day of classes and wandering. Her open hunter green sweater and matching tank top are simple and pretty. Black jeans are classic and lace-up combat boots give them some edge. A chunky gold necklace does the same up top. The carry-all bag has industrial accents, making this look urban chic overall. The bag’s many zippers speak to its functionality; a perfect trade for a more traditional backpack.
This look is so lovable because it is effortless to throw together, yet it still makes a statement. Try it yourself with any accessory in a great fall color. A deep orange belt and matching clutch would look great, as would a rich plum scarf. Keep the rest of your outfit subtle to let the piece really shine. And while you’re at it, go jump in a pile of leaves! Nothing is as stylish as a person having a great time.
