As the weather continues to cool down and candy corn starts lining the supermarket shelves, you sip on your pumpkin spice latte while excitedly look out your window to see if the leaves have changed color yet.The leaves won’t be the only thing transforming during the fall season though; your wardrobe will too. Well, if you’re looking for some outfit inspiration, look no further.

A fall wardrobe essential is of course a lightweight coat to get you through chilly days without making you break into a sweat when you walk into your heated classroom. This Fashionista here opted for a cropped structured coat from Zara, the standout piece of her outfit that can be dressed up or down. To complement it, she paired it with a monochromatic outfit including a crepe tank top, also from Zara, tucked in to a pair of high-waisted pants. This Fashionista completed her look with a trendy, but practical large tote that will fit all her books and supplies for school, as well as brown Steve Madden sandals.

Remember, fall fashion is all about warmth: warm hues and warm clothes! When in doubt, choose pieces that easily pair well with a variety of things to make the most of your wardrobe and get the most bang for your buck, too.

One Simple Change: Can’t figure out what to wear to your internship? Take this look and switch out the sandals for a pair of black pumps for a more mature and professional look, without sacrificing style.
