STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Layering Pieces

We’ve all gone through the struggle of wanting to stay warm and comfortable in the fall, while wanting to keep up-to-date with the newest fashion trends. This fall, I’ve been seeing the perfect solution to this issue on my campus.

I’ve come across a lot of looks similar to what this Fashionista is wearing: a sweater layered over a dress. This look is simple to accomplish, being that you really only need two garments to make it work. Pair your favorite cotton dress with your warmest sweater. The key to successfully accomplishing this look is to make sure that your sweater is loose enough to give off a comfy look, as well as making sure the skirt of your dress is free-flowing. You want the drape of the sweater and the skirt to compliment each other. It might take a few tries to get the look right, but once you do, you’ll become just as obsessed as I am!

This Fashionista’s look also shows another major fall trend. I have been seeing a lot of boots with skirts this season as well. I think it looks fabulous to pair knee-high boot socks with your ensembles, which could give you a little bit of extra warmth. I am all about comfort and style, so I think that this trend is a perfect mix for a fall, daytime look.
