STYLE GURU STYLE: Sweater Weather

Hi Fashionistas! It’s finally fall season, filled with pumpkin spice lattes, boots, warm sweaters and all of our favorite things. At the University of South Carolina we always have a fall break scheduled in October for a time to go home and visit family and friends. This fall break I went home to Washington D.C. and it was definitely sweater weather. I wore this particular outfit out walking around and later to dinner at a restaurant with friends.

I rocked my dark brown over the knee boots matching them with a pair of gray over-the-knee sweater socks. I wore this with a purple oversized sweater dress with a cowl neck. Both the dress and the boots are from Lulus, which is one of my favorite online stores to shop with very affordable prices and super trendy clothing. I threw on a floppy hat and sunglasses for day time wear.  One great thing about a floppy hat is that if you are having a bad hair day, it’s a sure way to cover that up but still look very fashion forward. The sunglasses I bought from a boutique in South Carolina have a very Dior-esque feel without the Dior price tag. This ensemble is perfect for that fall sweater weather afternoon wear to a night out. This outfit is also great because you are comfy from day to night.

Whether you are running around a city doing errands or going out at night, this is a versatile look. Fall is the perfect time for sweaters, and you can never go wrong with a sweater and boots. Here’s to discovering your inner chic!
