Fashion Week is in full force. Fashion editors from the top magazines are stylishly running from one fashion show to the next. Models grace the streets with their cool off-duty style as if they were walking down the runway. Designers start their shows fashionably late, sending out the latest designs that are sure to be featured on magazine covers in just a few months.
It starts at New York Fashion Week and this process continues in London, Milan and Paris. Fashion month is a global affair, and during the month of September, as the season officially changes and the weather begins to cool, all those interested in style and fashion are on their A-game.
This Fashionista perfectly displayed how to dress, not only amidst a seasonal change but also during the year’s most fashionable month. By playing with the textures and textiles of the pieces she chose, this Fashionista coordinated a floral, summer dress with metallic, autumnal loafers and created a foolproof transitional outfit.
On any given weekday, many girls opt for comfort over style when attending classes and meetings. Understandable. No one wants to be trudging around campus in four-inch heels and a billowy skirt that has a tendency to lift with every gust of wind. What I like about this Fashionista is how she layered a simple, floral dress over a basic cami for optimum comfort. Additionally, instead of wearing sandals and risking cold feet in lecture, she picked a metallic set of loafers. Although this combination is unexpected, it’s playful and expertly displays this Fashionista’s fun and outgoing personality.
September is a perfect time to reach in your closet and see what pieces you can combine to make brand new outfits. Not always does fashion month mean spending tons of money on new clothing. A better way to approach this stylish holiday is to reinvent pieces you already have and create outfits in ways you originally did not plan.
This Fashionista proves that metallic gold and a colorful floral print are a match made in heaven. What about polka-dots and stripes? Chevron and color-block? Metallic and stripes? The possibilities are endless. All it requires is stepping out of your comfort zone and seeing where different textures, patterns and textiles can take you.
