STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Welcome to My Layer

It can only mean one thing when temperatures begin decreasing and fashion trends start to rise – fall is upon us! Fashionistas and Fashionistos alike pull out all the stops as this fashionable season arises. With an introduction to the season ahead, this week’s Fashionista shows off one of the favored trends of seasons past and ones to come.

Without leaving a snag, how can you pull the most out of your warm, fall-ready sweaters? The answer is simpler than you may think—layers, layers, layers. Take a look at how this Fashionista took a new twist on an old favorite. Sweaters, while perfect over jeans, are also just as versatile over a dress.

Dresses may seem like a one season outfit, but I can assure you they’re much, much more than that. Layering a sweater over a dress breathes life into a completely new ensemble you didn’t even know you owned! It’s the feeling you get when you pull twenty bucks out of a pair of jeans you haven’t warn since last winter (or at least a close enough feeling).

This Fashionista demonstrates how easy it can be to pull together a show stopping outfit while working with a college student budget. New finds are easier to pull from old ones than the eye initially gives way to. The addition of a statement necklace helps tie color into the neutral look, while lace-up boots continue to the fun details from head to toe.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “I love to play around in my wardrobe and see what new pieces I can bring together; it’s a mini art project I get to explore each morning. I’ll admit, some mornings are a little more challenging but the end result always prove worth it.”
