With fall just around the corner, you’re probably throwing articles of clothing left and right, trying to find that perfect outfit for the new season. Not only is your social calendar blowing up with last minute summer plans, but classes resume in a matter of weeks and you’re desperate for a fresh outfit. Before deciding you’re entirely out of clothes and the mall is the only option, take a second look. The dresses, skirts, and tank tops you bought last spring in anticipation for summer still have potential for the fall, with the help of some simple changes and revamping.
This Fashionista pulled a simple maroon dress out of her closet and paired it with a denim jacket for a day in the city. The faded blue in combination with the deep purple tie together perfectly and give off that mid-summer and early fall contrast you were looking for. Adding simple earrings and a choker keeps the look casual and classic, while her strappy wedges and fringe bag provide depth and individuality to the outfit. While this Fashionista wore this ensemble for an afternoon downtown, the look could easily be worn for many events including brunch with friends, an end-of-summer barbecue or a class presentation.
One Simple Change: Trade out the jean jacket for a black leather jacket to wear this outfit to dinner or a girl’s night out. In addition to the jacket change, throw on a pair of black pumps, add eyeliner and a dark shade of lipstick to your makeup and your look instantly transitions from classic to edgy.
