Style Advice of the Week

This past summer the high-low trend was found almost everywhere. Girls were rocking this trend with their maxi dresses and/or skirts. This look is perfect because it can add a bit of character to any daytime look or add a bit of drama to a nighttime look as well. This Fashionista shows us how to take this past summer’s high-low trend and transition into fall.

Carrying this trend over into the next season is simple. It could be as easy as changing the color of the fabric or adding a few accessories to any neutral summer dress. This Fashionista’s pumpkin colored sundress is the perfect color for fall or summer, and with her accessories she is able to transition this look. She adds a denim jacket over her dress, which is a great idea for the early fall weather. A denim jacket is versatile and looks great over any dress. Recently on Man Repeller, blogger Leandra Medine wrote a whole post dedicated to the denim jacket. 

This Fashionista adds a pair of brown riding boots, which are an essential in any fall wardrobe. Her knee-highs peeking out of the top of them also gives a cozier feel to this look. She uses a medium thick brown leather belt, which gives this dress a great shape by cinching at the waist.

Achieving this Fashionista’s look is simple. This dark purple high-low dress from Forever 21 is a great basic for fall and can be dressed up or dressed down depending on your accessories. Urban Outfitters also has a great selection of high-low dresses for both day and night. This basic J.Crew denim jacket is made with exceptionally soft denim or if you want a funkier look try this Free People one. You can never go wrong with a good pair of riding boots. I believe that they are a great investment piece and these Frye boots are to die for.
