STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Free Fallin’

As the trees on campus begin to lose their leaves and the temperature in the morning is 10 degrees colder than it is at midday, opting for a quick fix pair of leggings and a go-to, over-worn sweater can be very tempting. But dressing for iffy and unpredictable fall weather doesn’t have to be drab or uninspired…enter the must-have fall essential, the T-shirt dress. This little pretty dress is both cozy and chic, it’s an easy slip on, no-thought-necessary outfit and who doesn’t love those? Check out how this week’s fabulous fall Fashionista styled this ever-popular dress from Brandy Melville for an effortless keep-me-warm-while-looking-oh-so-cool-style.

To recreate this autumn ensemble, head over to brandymelvilleusa.com and pick up their Janelle T-shirt dress in your favorite colors. This Lafayette lovely opted for the dress in green and at 100 percent cotton it gives you all the comfort of your favorite pair of leggings. To dress up the simple cut casual dress and be prepared for potentially cooler weather, she paired hers with a Free People Windowpane Plaid Cardigan Jacket in ivory combo. And let’s not forget, it’s the small things that count, like accessories! To accentuate the gray tones in her cardigan, she wore a silver choker and long feather pendant necklace from Banana Republic. Although the store no longer carries these specific pieces, their Hammered Dog Tag necklace is the perfect substitute. She completed her look, with everyone’s favorite fall shoe, the riding boot. She’s sporting the Unisa Teylor Riding Boot in brown, which can be found at DSW.
