Welcome back Fashionistas/os! It feels like just yesterday our carefree summer was just beginning and now we are on to textbooks, homework and of course, pumpkin spice lattes. Autumn is quickly approaching and most of us are itching to wear our cozy fall favorites. Forget the heat, don’t let this 90 degree weather stop you from wearing your fiercest fall attire!

This Fashionista is rocking a cheetah print mini with a matching wide velvet choker. The skirt is great because she can wear it now in this heat, or wait and wear it in a few months with some tights and booties. She paired the skirt with a band T-shirt and a chunky black heel, both of which are staples for any time of year. She ties in the cheetah print one more time with the accent case on her phone. Then, she is accessorizing with Cartier jewelry, a Michael Kors bag and a bold lip. This look is so versatile, perfect for sightseeing, shopping and even a lunch date.

As for my style advice of the week: don’t be afraid to be bold and wear something one of a kind, try dressing up an old graphic T-shirt (they work with more than just jeans and a pair of Converse All-Stars) and lastly, have fun! So much of finding your niche in the fashion world is trial and error; wear what makes you feel powerful and confident so you can own your style. Good luck trying out these tips on how to stay RAD this fall.
