STYLE ADVICE: Transition Pieces

STYLE ADVICE: Transition Pieces

As the weather continues to change, our wardrobes need to as well. Making a seamless transition seems nearly impossible with the weather being warm and sunny one day and miserable and cold the next. The key is to find some pieces that accommodate for both. Trench coats are a great example of this. Throwing on a trench coat helps defend against the cold, but it is also not thick enough for you to overheat.

This Fashionista is rocking a sleeveless trench coat. I am in love with this new take on the trench coat. The reinvention of the trench adds a modern touch to this classic look. They are also a closet basic and must-have in any wardrobe. They can help dress down or dress up any outfit you could dream up this very instant. Pairing it with a striped button-down adds a unique touch to the outfit. A dark patterned blouse creates a great contrast in color with the light beige of the trench coat.

Something I always find myself gravitating towards is a cute pair of jeans. Recently, I have been loving the distressed denim trend and, in my opinion, the more rips, the better. The light wash denim allows for this look to be more casual than formal which is important for anyone walking through a college campus. Pairing them with a pair of brown booties, one of my favorite wardrobe staples, really emphasizes the creative yet casual style I tend to gravitate towards.

As always, jewelry is very important and adds the finishing touches to a garment. Her necklace and large earrings help showcase her fun and down to earth personality. A trendy outfit only goes so far. What I find most fascinating about an outfit is how I can get to know a person by seeing how they make an outfit truly their own, and that is why I love fashion.
