STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Keep Your Heels, Head and Standards (Thigh) High

With cold weather quickly approaching on the East Coast, we’ve reached the time of year where you have to dress for cold mornings, gorgeous sunny days and chilly evenings. Autumn in Virginia means it’s time for the much anticipated transition from summer styles to fall colors, boots and long sleeves. It’s time for the return of pumpkin spice lattes, hoodies, football games, hiking and dates to the pumpkin patch.

This Fashionista chose to rock a look perfect for the seasonal mood swings of the Mother Nature. She pieced together a velvet olive button front mini skirt with a white surplice body suit. The velvet adds a nice mix of texture to the ribbing of the one piece. Underneath, she featured a rust bralette to add warm fall colors to the ensemble.

To accessorize, she included a pleasingly simple black choker with a pearl pendant. The favorite necklace of the ‘90s is back in action and we all love it. For the finishing touch, she added some adorable lace-up ankle booties and thigh high socks. These simple additions made the outfit trendy and chic.
I’m sure we all can agree that this combo is way too cute to handle. The colors are perfect for this month’s palette and everything was put together flawlessly. The thigh highs, which are everywhere right now, were what really made the outfit stand out. From layering them with over-the-knee boots to warming up a cute dress, these socks are the ultimate accessory to add that autumn spice to any outfit.

Aside from the fact that she’s slaying, the best part about this Fashionista’s look is the versatility. It would be suitable for a date, class, a cliché autumn outing (pumpkin picking, apple picking, etc.) or even just to grab coffee and run errands! With the ability to easily dress it up or dress it down, this style is sure to turn heads no matter the occasion.
