Tis the season for crunching leaves under your ankle booties, baking apple pies with your own hand picked apples and snuggling up in your favorite oversized waffle-knit sweater with a cup of coffee (or pumpkin spice latte) to watch ABC Family movie marathons. Can you tell that I love fall? This is my absolute favorite season, for may reasons. Fall brings so many fresh beginnings. Having a September birthday, fall brought me new clothes, new school supplies and a fresh start to the school year. Although I am attending school online this semester, there are still so many fun fall things to get excited about, particularly fall fashion!
It is easy to get overly excited about fall—especially while living in the northeast—and find yourself profusely sweating in the middle of the day because the September weather is just not ready for your sweater. I’m speaking from experience here. The skill lies in figuring out how exactly to execute fall fashion regardless of the forecast. One of the best ways: layering pieces. Featured here is my favorite Fashionista. Donned in a flowing, printed Free People frock, fringe cross-body bag, ankle booties and a statement necklace, she welcomes transitional weather perfectly. This dress is excellent for the cold weather transition because it will look just as excellent when paired with black tights and a leather jacket.
If you’re wondering which trend to invest in this season, I vote fringe. Seventies style is still huge, with fringe booties, jackets and suede cross-body bags. It’s time to embrace fall with patterns, varying textures, adventure-friendly outfits and a bohemian spirit. ‘Tis the season!
What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Sometimes I like dressing sophisticated, other days girly and on other days, like today, I’m a hippie. A sure fire way to look like a hipster is to wear flowery drape-y clothes, and, of course- put a top knot on it!”
