ALL IN THE DETAILS: Fall Essentials

Temperatures are slowly dwindling, leaves are changing colors and Fashionista/os are starting to put away their shorts and tank tops. This can only mean one thing…fall is here! As I have said before, fall is my favorite season not just because of the beautiful foliage or the arrival of the pumpkin spiced latte at Starbucks but primarily because of the great fall fashion. From boots to oversized cardigans to light scarves, what’s not to like? Students all around campus are starting to switch out their vibrant summer gear for their comfortable and cozy autumn attire. However, there are a few statement fall pieces that just about go with any outfit during these chilly months. Floral infinity scarves and tall knit socks with boots are two ways to not only stay warm this fall, but to look totally cute and fashionable in the process as well.

This Fashionista is wearing both of these elements effortlessly. Infinity scarves are so easy to wear and this one, from Old Navy, can be paired with almost anything because of its neutral blue tone. With a simple long sleeved dress, like this one, or even a black V-neck shirt, infinity scarves can play up any outfit instantly. In addition to the scarf, these heather gray socks from Forever 21 add a little coziness and color to the overall look. Instead of solely wearing boots, the knit high socks add a little something extra while keeping this Fashionista nice and warm. The rich red wine color of her dress, her blue floral infinity scarf and her tan Michael Kors bag bring a neutral toned theme to this outfit, which is perfect for fall! This can easily be a day to night look; it can be worn to class, or when paired with a longer jacket (to cover the length of the dress), it can be worn on date night to a nice restaurant downtown.

How To: Pair a solid color shirt, jeans and boots with a printed infinity scarf and neutral colored socks to instantly play up your look! It’s that easy; purchase a scarf that is a statement piece for your outfit and work it in to be a main accessory. As for the socks, search for some that are soft and cozy that go with your boots. There you go, an outfit that’s fashionable yet super easy to put together! With these two pieces, you can get through this fall fashion season in style!
