STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Practical Perfection

In Illinois, autumn is one of the trickiest seasons. While many people may expect it to be consistently cool everyday, that is definitely not the case. One day it could reach upper sixties, the next it could be windy and raining, and then later on in the week it could be thirty degrees. This may make it difficult for you fall Fashionista/os to decide what kind of outfit will have you best prepared for the wild weather, but don’t fear! Here is an example of how you can be practical, yet stylish at the same time.

This Fashionista utilizes both of those trends and shows us how to look ready for fall, but also ready for whatever kind of weather the day brings. She layers a cozy sweater over a denim button-up and pairs it with cute duck boots. Sweaters are always a very important trend when it comes to fall. It will keep her warm when there is a chill in the air, but she can always take it off and rock the denim-on-denim look if she gets hot. The boots serve a double purpose by being warm and also water resistant.

Not only did this Fashionista have the perfect outfit for the rapidly changing weather, but she also had great little details in her ensemble! The bejeweled statement necklace she wore added just the right amount of sparkle to her outfit. Statement necklaces are always great to glam up any look! By cuffing the sleeves of her sweater she was able to show off a little more of the denim shirt and make the look more unique. Lastly, the tall socks that peeked out of her boots added warmth and flare.
