With the fall season in full swing, it often becomes tempting to get into the same boring routine. We have all been there; you stumble right into the corner of your closet that contains your chunky knits, and basically pitch a tent there until spring. It is easy to be over-obsessed with the new coziness of this fall weather, but as a Fashionista, you’ve got to stick to your true individuality.

Instead of pulling out the same boring turtle necks with the same boring scarves, mix up your life with some pattern and passion. One of the most important rules of fashion is to be unpredictable, no matter the season. I dare you to test your boundaries this fall with some unexpected pieces, and I promise they’ll never see it coming.

This Fashionista tested the autumn boundaries with taking a black and white textured sweater and pairing it with pleated gold metallic pants. She added even more texture with one-of-a-kind statement earrings and a pop of fresh color on the lip.

The trick to pulling off multiple unpredicted pieces is finding stability between the two. This Fashionista balanced the lively textures with a clean, black jacket and a pair of sassy yet simple heeled booties.

It is about time that Fashionistas stand up and take back fall. Don’t let the fall facade dampen your attitude. Dare to step out of your comfort zone this week, and mix up your fall favorites. You may feel a tad out of your element, but that just means your outfit’s working.
