Even though we’ve seen the black wide-brimmed hat last summer and this summer, it looks like we’re seeing it again better than ever for the fall. Who knew such a simple piece could be such a statement?

I know what you’re thinking, I’m not a hat girl or maybe even I don’t want to look like Johnny Depp from the Pirates of the Caribbean, but listen up here; there is a hat for everyone. It may sound weird, but just like a haircut, there are different styles for each unique person. Easily paired with any of those LBDs or maxis you have, this black hat is a perfect accessory for a girl looking to stand out modestly. If you’re more of the sporty type, opt for a baseball cap or try a beanie. There are so many options and you’ll never know before you try them on whether or not it’s the right choice. This Fashionista here perfectly pairs this trendy look with equally trendy footwear, such as the platform bootie, along with layered mixed-metal necklaces.

Everyone knows it’s a difficult transition going from the sweltering heat of summer to the breezy days of fall. Though, this look serves as a perfect example for the days when you’re not exactly sure what season Mother Nature is projecting. The simple look of a trapeze dress is a budget-friendly way of adding a whole other outfit to your wardrobe. You can throw this on for class or dress it up later for a night out. Pair this look with black tights or a mustard-colored cardigan when the weather gets colder and you’re ready to go sip on some hot coffee while studying chemistry–or maybe just the sipping hot coffee part.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Accessories are so vital in the fashion world. I usually go for the simple neutral look but adding a few accessories can really jazz up the out fit or add a pop of color. Adding fun shoes, funky jewelry and a floppy hat is très chic way to turn heads on campus.”
