STYLE GURU STYLE: September Stripes

September 19th, 2016 at 2:00am

Just because the fall semester has begun doesn’t mean that it’s time to put away our summer dresses! With a simple layering trick that you can dress up or down, you can effortlessly continue to wear your favorite pieces from July in September.

I wore my go-to black and white striped dress from Zara paired with a black lightweight bomber jacket from American Apparel so that I’d stay comfortable even in air conditioned classrooms throughout the day. To pull the look together, I added my favorite pair of black suede block heel sandals by Steve Madden. On another day, I would have opted for a pair of classic white sneakers by Superga instead of my low heeled sandals to ensure even more comfort and a more down-to-earth vibe. I also kept my outfit minimal, but still put together by accessorizing simply. You’ll rarely find me without my everyday accessories, a pair of Quay sunglasses and a stack of personalized silver charm bracelets from Pandora and Alex and Ani.

To get this look, pair any simple cotton jersey dress with a lightweight jacket to add an extra layer of comfort in order to transition your summer wardrobe into an autumn one. Slip on a pair of sandals or sneakers depending on whether you’d like to dress the look up or down, and add some chic sunnies and some of your other favorite accessories to top it all off.

Layering can do more than extend the wear time of your seasonal dresses. It keeps you comfortable and prepared for the warm and cold weather, and puts together any look to show that you have #RAD style!
