This Fashionista was rocking a minimalistic fall ensemble consisting of a striped T-shirt, dark washed denim jeans with a RAD, ripped light wash denim jacket and a plaid scarf! The color of the scarf mimics the color of changing leaves such as deep reds and the vibrant yellows. She mixes patterns effortlessly by a picking a neutral color such as the black seen in the striped T-shirt and black stripes in the scarf and using red as the pop of color. The trick to accessorizing in the fall is layering, which is why scarves are the perfect accent especially in the early days of fall.
