STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Lace It Up

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Lace It Up

Booties are the signature look of fall. But what happens when the unpredictable weather isn’t cooperating with you? You know, the type of weather where you’re comfortable in the morning while walking to class or running errands, but overly warm in the same outfit by mid-afternoon?

Don’t sweat it, this Fashionista has a solution for you. Her black suede skirt and booties mixed with a neutral lace-up top bring fall fashion and a chic look to the table. There is room to breathe due to the lace-up top, so it’s easy to balance the fall look while being comfortable frolicking around town. Yes, booties are comfortable, but they also add a heel to the look, which can turn a casual outfit into a more sophisticated one. Her accessories won’t go unnoticed because she spiced up her look by adding a pair of rose gold rimmed sunglasses.

My advice? Invest in a suede skirt and a reliable pair of booties this fall. I’d recommend black for both items as a starting point, but if you can rock other colors, or even multiple pairs, then props to you! Find some lace-up tops or bodysuits to mix with your skirts—I usually shop for these necessities at small town boutiques!

Grab some accessories, such as this Fashionista’s bracelets and green ring to add some color to your outfit and individualize it. There’s nothing better than adding your own touch to each outfit, even if it’s as simple as tucking your shirt into your skirt and letting some hang loose from the side! Lastly, If you ever find yourself spending more than five minutes trying to decide what color bag to pair with an outfit, just remember this! My go-to is a black bag that can tie my outfit together, thus making me feel so put together that I’m ready to tackle any obstacle life will decide to throw me.
