STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Set the Tone for Fall

The month of October marks the beginning of fall, and more unpredictable Pittsburgh weather. It can be difficult to select an outfit for class when it’s 50 degrees in the morning and 75 degrees at lunch time. The key to dressing for success during the summer to fall transition is layering.

This Fashionisto took a simplistic approach to layering by wearing a solid T-shirt with a flannel button-down tied around his waist. The most important part of any fall outfit is color. The easiest way to dress stylish in the fall is to wear deep shades of your favorite hue. This outfit proves that a basic T-shirt can be stylish simply because of the tone.

Any outfit for class must have a balance between comfort and style. This Fashionisto is comfortable wearing jeans and a T-shirt, and his hat and watch pull the outfit together while adding style. Rather than taking up room in your backpack, try wearing your jacket as an accessory by tying it around your waist.

If you have been keeping up with fashion week around the world, you will notice that tennis shoes are the new loafers. Even stores like J.Crew are showing tennis shoes with suits. This is great news for all of us college students on a budget! Most importantly, this trend will come in handy when you are running late to class. The versatility of these shoes is just another benefit along with comfort. You don’t need to wear dress shoes in order to look stylish.

The best part about this outfit is the easy transition from day to night. Put on the button-down, take off the hat and backpack and this outfit can be worn out to dinner or on an evening stroll through the city.
