WHAT TO WEAR: Fall Doesn't Mean You Have to Ditch the Skirt

October means we’re getting ready to carve pumpkins and pick out our costumes for Halloween. We opt for long sleeves and our gladiator sandals become leather riding boots. Fall typically means bringing out darker hues such as maroon, mustard and olive-colored clothing. Fall may sound like a three month sentence of wearing only pants. However, this season brings varying temperatures, which actually allows you so much flexibility when it comes to picking your outfit of the day.

It may be October, but you don’t have to expel your summer staples from your closet. This Fashionista shows us how to transition your favorite jean skirt from the summer to a cute fall outfit.

This Fashionista is wearing a ribbed, mock neck crop top and a denim, multi-buttoned skirt from Forever 21. She pairs this with brown and black tall leather riding boots from Famous Footwear. She accents her look with lace boot socks and a gold cuff on her wrist.

This look effortlessly adds fall touches to a simple denim skirt. Mock neck tops and leather boots are quintessentially fall. Pairing these with a skirt easily incorporates warm weather style into an autumn day. The addition of boot socks adds a layer of warmth allowing you to tackle the wind while strolling through campus.

It’s mid-October. So by now it’s likely that leaving your bed in the morning for class is hard and studying for midterms is even harder. But let’s make one thing easy: when you’re thinking about what to wear in fall, remember you don’t have to ditch your favorite skirt.
