Autumn is finally here in Montana, and for the most part, I could not be more excited! I say that with a little bit of hesitation because while it may look like fall on campus, it certainly doesn’t feel like it. One of the difficulties with this time of year is having to dress for cooler temperatures in the morning and warm (if not hot) temperatures in the afternoon. The best way to dress for the whirlwind of temperatures is by layering. Layering is one of the best ways to accessorize because you can play with different pieces of jewelry, as well as things like scarves.

There is no better way to layer than with a scarf, especially one that has a classic fall print like this one. Scarves are perfect for the fall, as they provide a little bit of warmth and protection from the wind, yet they are not too heavy and can be worn every day. Scarves with prints on them pair perfectly over basics like a white blouse and a pair of distressed skinny jeans. No fall look would be complete without feminine, heeled booties.

This Fashionista’s plaid scarf is the epitome of fall, and it will go with absolutely everything throughout the season. Scarves are one of the most versatile pieces in a wardrobe because they can be worn so many different ways and with so many different pieces. To personalize the look even more, add a pair of statement earrings to pull the look together.

How To: Find a scarf that is going to work with several items in your wardrobe. Pick a fun print to go with a more basic look or a basic solid color to be paired with the more fun and printed pieces in your closet.
