Transitioning from summer to fall means a transition in the weather. In contrast with summer’s consistent heat, the fall season is notorious for its unpredictable weather. Whether it is hot or cold, college students are faced with a dilemma: what to wear. As the weather changes, so does our clothing. Should we retrieve the thick woolen sweaters buried deep within our closets? Or should we continue sporting tank tops and shorts, the typical summer wear? Like this Fashionista did, combining seasonal clothes with a trendy flair is the way to solve our “what to wear” problems.

Light layers are key to the summer to fall fashion transition. This Fashionista starts with a patterned crop top and black high-waisted pants. The monochromatic design of her shirt is subtle but makes a statement against her solid pants. Paired together, they make the ideal combination for those cool autumn days. And with the addition of the chambray shirt, her look transforms from chic to casual—great for walking around campus and comfortable for those long lectures.

The highlights of this Fashionista’s outfit have to be the warm toned accents. Contradicting the black and white colors in her blouse and pants, her accessories really stand out. Starting with the bracelets adorning her wrists, the gold bangles are a prominent part to her look—simple, yet effective. Not to mention the cognac ankle boots complementing her tube scarf—an essential must-have for this fall season! Scarves fulfill everyday fashion needs. They are easily accessible and provide warmth and comfort, while successfully completing any outfit. In other words, they are perfect for fall.

One Simple Change: Ditch the chambray shirt for your favorite leather jacket. Not only will it keep you warm during those late fall nights, it refines your look for the perfect girl’s night out.
