The school year is finally in full swing! You can feel the air getting cooler and see the leaves beginning to change. Fall is finally upon us. Transitioning outfits from warm to chilly weather can be a challenge especially here in New England where the temperature can’t quite seem to settle.

However, this Fashionista perfected the art of transitioning a look from summer to fall. To start this difficult task, she chose a great base with a dark red dress. This shade is made for fall and embraces a deeper color scheme without going too extreme. Her neutral scarf brightens the look and adds some warmth for chilly mornings. A gray cardigan like this one from J.Crew, is, of course, an essential for any Fashionista when the weather cools down. Roxy combat boots are a must-have for this fall and pairing them with adorable socks from American Eagle Outfitters adds a cozy touch to the look.

The black tights, while optional when the weather is warmer, add an air of sophistication to the look making it appropriate for class or a more formal meeting. For accessories, this Fashionista stuck with basic jewelry and added depth to her look with a dark green nail polish. To finish off the look, she styled her hair with a velvet bow by American Apparel giving the dressy look a fun vibe.

One Simple Change: Going out with the girls later on in the night? Swap out the combat boots for a pair of heels and you’ll have a perfect outfit for a Girls Night Out!
