STYLE GURU STYLE: Be Bold in Burgundy

For this month’s STYLE GURU STYLE, I threw it back a year ago to J.Crew’s fall 2014 runway. On this runway, J.Crew shows off cozy layers. There are big jackets, bulky scarves and chunky sweaters. These looks are every Fashionista’s dream fall wardrobe!

To channel these cozy vibes I decided to go with high-waisted dark jeans, a plain ivory T-shirt, a scarf with an ombré effect, tan wedge booties and an oversized utility jacket. I kept the color scheme simple and fall-oriented. Burgundy is a staple color in my wardrobe. The deep red draws my attention and makes me think of fall time. The tan and ivory colors are great neutrals to have in this outfit.

I was torn between wearing jeans or a tweed textured skirt, either would work perfectly! The skirt would definitely add more interest, but I wanted to keep a little warmer this day. Dark jeans are something every Fashionista has in her closet, so it’s an easy grab!

I love that these type of booties are in style. I almost wear mine every day and just picked up another pair in black! They’re so comfortable for walking back and forth to class and go with everything!

The jacket adds another layer for warmth, but can be taken off when those study rooms get too warm. Utility jackets are also a must for every Fashionista. They’re comfy and can easily be thrown on. My matching scarf pairs with it perfectly in color and in comfort. This is a new favorite of mine—Steve Madden never seems to disappoint. I added a gold choker necklace to add a little sparkle under my scarf. I’m a sucker for gold accents!

Get My Look: 1. A big utility jacket. 2. Some sparkle. A chunky scarf.
