Who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day? Rules in fashion were made to be broken especially at this point in the season. Summer is long gone and we greet fall with a cheerful hello. As I expressed in my previous post, I love everything about fall except two things: the weather and starting classes. Let me elaborate.
Fall is the greatest season of all time. I could easily end there, but I’ll continue. Fall is the greatest season of all time except for the complicated, pubescent period when its 35 degrees in the morning and by lunchtime it’s 80 degrees, then back down into the 40s in the evening. Ohio’s awkward transition from summer to fall raises a lot of questions for us Fashionstas/os. What fabrics do I wear? What colors do I wear? What shoes do I wear? To this day, I still have no clue what the actual answers are to any of the above questions, a similar feeling that I have in most of my college classes. Let’s get one thing straight, college is awesome. I love going out with friends and building my future career one day at a time. Do I love homework and studying? Nope. Do I love waking up at 7:00 a.m. for class? Nope. Do I love profusely sweating on the stroll to class literally every single day? Nope. During the busy days the fall weather brings to us, where is the time to answer any of these questions, get inspiration and actually put together a look you are comfortable in and love? I don’t know about you guys, but I have a project, two papers to write and 45 “what should I wear?”
So, here is my attempt at answering the various rhetorical questions from the previous paragraph: wear whatever you want. That is exactly what this Fashionista did on her way to class and that is exactly why I love this look from head to toe. She beautifully broke the biggest rule in fashion: no white after Labor Day. Her top is a vintage white, silk, spaghetti strap tank (OMG, it was her mom’s back in the day, thanks mom!) layered with a cream knitted cardigan. With the weird weather patterns and going in and out of classes, layering is essential. These distressed boyfriend jeans are a must-have in any closet, dress them up or dress them down, and more importantly they have holes to give your legs some air while you power-walk your way class. She completed this look with sparkly sandals, a white leather choker, subtle jewels here and there and a gorgeous cross-body bag. Her hair and makeup are quick and natural (checkout that highlight, though) which makes it easy if you’ve pressed snooze one too many times.
