WHAT TO WEAR: Fall

Crammed with assignments, television series premieres and other special events, would you believe we’re already a few months into the semester? It is finally fall, time to graciously welcome back crunchy leaves, sweater weather and everything pumpkin spice! The transition from endless days of blazing summertime heat to autumn’s mix of wind and rain can be tricky for some.

This Fashionista stays warm without being weighed down by hoodies or coats by incorporating this floral piece that is actually a dress when buttoned. It accentuates her waist and complements the rest of her ensemble. Her warm, marsala-colored leggings are the quintessential example of a fall staple. Leggings, pants and jeans in warm tones similar to this one are so versatile, which is great for those who despise outfit repeating or are on a budget! Besides, pairing these leggings with a teal shirt probably wouldn’t be feasible if not for the floral addition. While florals are not typical fall attire, this Fashionista effortlessly pulls off the unlikely combo. A natural lip, bare face and mini red backpack also complement the look. This Fashionista really knows how to work a palette!

One Simple Change: If it is windier where you are located, feel free to add a scarf in a warm tone like burgundy or plum purple, or even legwarmers if they suit your style. This look can also be transitioned to fit winter weather. Instead of the leggings, you can sport a thick pair of colored pants. If you choose to stick with leggings, make sure they are fleece-lined. Swap the short sleeve top with a long sleeve, switch to a wool coat or jacket and add floral hair accessories or shoes such as booties and everyday boots.
