It’s already October Fashionistas, which means we get to look forward to next season’s trends and styles while the weather gets cold.  While sipping pumpkin spice lattes, curling up by the bonfire or spending the day apple picking, we want to look our absolute best for fall.  Some of the hottest fashion trends this season are coming from Christian Dior, J.Crew and Oscar de la Renta.  It’s not hard to guess that there will be toned down colors, cozy fabrics and decade references.  You’ll most likely be wearing capes, booties, vests and plaid.

This Fashionista caught my eye on Ohio University’s campus green because she was completely ready for the fall season, plus her adorable puppy helped!  It’s already starting to get chilly in Athens, Ohio, and her look was perfect for her day on campus.  She matched her cozy flannel dress with fashionable open-toed booties.  I absolutely loved the accessories she paired with this seasonal outfit.  She added a layered necklace from Rue 21, Ray-Ban sunglasses, a leather backpack from T.J. Maxx and, of course, her pup.  These really finished the look and prepared her for the autumn weather.  She looked great as she walked through the falling leaves on the green.

One Simple Change: This plaid dress would also be a perfect choice for a country concert!  By switching out the booties with cowgirl boots and adding a wide belt, you will be ready to see any country star. It’s always great to be able to use your pieces for different events.
