As the end of August approaches, it’s time to pin up your concert tickets and trade in your flash tattoos for flashcards. With the start of any new school year, it can take you some time to get back into the swing of things. Just trying to remember your class schedule can take longer than it did for you to remember the Outside Lands lineup. Even though you’d rather sway outdoors to dreamy beats by ODESZA than slump through hours of lecture, you don’t need to tuck away all your festival finds when classes start.
Take note from this Fashionista: she wears an ornate, colorful necklace as the center piece of her monochrome outfit. The vibrant red and green strands of thread give a cool Coachella feel and resemble the same color pops featured in Vetement’s fall 2015 ready-to-wear collection. The added turquoise accents at the end add a striking feature to the necklace, and truly make it a unique piece.
Don’t be quick to bid adieu to your crop tops, also. As demonstrated by our Fashionista, they can still be worn when the weather gets a little chilly. By pairing her crochet crop top with high-waisted jeans and a comfortable denim jacket, the top is transformed from festival to fall ready.
How To: If you’re getting ready for back to school shopping and want the perfect accessory for fall, don’t scour through stores. Instead, create some DIY jewelry. Not only will you avoid the risk of wearing the same item as someone else (because that’s never not awkward), but you’ll find the pleasure of wearing something you created yourself. Grab some wire, colorful thread and beads to create a replica of this Fashionista’s necklace. Not feeling crafty? Take an old necklace, spray paint it with paint and voila!
