STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Floral for Fall

Style Advice of the Week

Who said you need a new wardrobe for every season? Remixing pieces here and there always brings an unexpected freshness to the outfit that would help you stand out in the crowd of people on campus. This Fashionista was found wandering before class with her very fresh floral summer dress and a bright spirit. As college students, we are often restricted by our budget to get new “in season” outfits every month. The key of rewearing a summer dress in fall is to understand how to tone the colors down and make it cold-weather-appropriate. You can even pick out out-of-season sales items online to refresh your closet on a tight budget.

ASOS is having many summer items on sale at a very good price. To replicate our Fashionista’s look, you might want to check out this dress.

Our Fashionista paired the floral sundress with black tights. This not only helps to tone down the bright colors of the dress but also helps with keeping her legs warm in this unexpected fall weather. She also has on a dark brown pair of leather combat boots. Here, she is mixing the rocker chic look with the more soft and sweet outfit. Juxtaposition is always fun to have on any outfit. It creates an expected but unexpected playful look.

Fall is the season in between, when you can really play around with different looks and colors from both summer and winter. Try digging up those neon or floral pieces from your summer wardrobe. You’ll never know what you can come up with!

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Floral for Fall

Uncategorized

This week again proved to be warm and sunny  - one of those times where all the college students seem to pour out of dorm rooms, fraternity and sorority houses, apartment buildings and out of class rooms to stretch out their limbs on campus parks and other nearby grassy areas. Students could be seen playing classic ultimate frisbee, lounging on blankets while studying, and just catchin' some rays while chatting with friends.

This week's Fashionista was caught photographing friends and students in their natural habitat – one of Springfield's still-green city parks. Her love of photography and love of fashion stood out to me as she described how she was working on a new project for one of her classes. Even though when you think about fall you don't automatically think floral, our gal found a way to incorporate the trend into her outfit. Aim for darker colors, like black, navy, and maroon which will keep the outfit from looking too summery.

Check out this faux-velvet dress from Forever 21 - the texture gives the outfit a rich feeling while the color palette is in keeping with traditional fall colors. Feel free to spice up a more simple floral dress with a faux lamb fur vest to give off a vintage vibe. For accessories, keep the rest of you warm with wool leggings and some funky boots like these from Chinese Laundry. A lot of attitude with some softer sweet florals can be the perfect pairing for a new look for fall!
