Style Advice of the Week

As the weather continues to fluctuate, picking out one outfit to stay in all day can be frustrating. If you’re bundled up for the cool morning temperatures, by lunch time you’re seriously regretting that chunky sweater. Today’s Fashionista displays the perfect way to layer for a warm fall day.

This Fashionista wears a pair of black skinny jeans with a long black tank top. Instead of simply throwing a cardigan over the tank top, she chose a detailed lace shirt. The lace shirt, similar to this one from NASTY GAL is super functional. You can pair this shirt with anything from your favorite pair of high-waisted denim cutoffs in the summer to your favorite pair of jeans in the fall. Another way to dress up the delicate lace is by wearing it over a simple black dress.

To make your outfit more sophisticated, try to veer away from basic flats. Today’s Fashionista went with a wedged bootie, similar to this afforable pair from Target. Wedges aren’t just comfortable for walking around campus, they can also polish off a look and take it to the next level of style. Not to mention the wonders wedges do for your legs!

If heels just aren’t for you, opt for boots. Pairing a girlish lace pattern with combat boots takes the look from quaint to edgy. If weather permits, try adding a Krochet Kids slouch beanie to pull the look together. If edgy isn’t you, try a pair of cowboy or riding boots! Riding boots are perfect for the cooler weather.

It’s amazing how something as simple as footwear can change the entire look of an outfit. Don’t write off your favorite lace shirts quite yet. Find the perfect pair of shoes and work your way up. You’ll be pleasantly surprised when you realize just how versatile lace can be.
