WHAT TO WEAR: Rain Don’t Mean A Thang

With fall officially upon us, the days are slowly getting colder while our outfits are becoming warmer. The most asked question during the beginning of fall is when it is appropriate to start wearing our UGGs. The answer? Halfway through summer, or every day of the year, your choice.

Rain seems to be a gift in the hot summer, but mixed with the cold and crisp air during fall, it can be a nuisance. When the weather is frigid and dreary, and class is in the afternoon, picking out the perfect outfit is crucial to a good day on campus. Whether your typical style is super casual or always stylish, this simple outfit that this Fashionista pulls together offers a lovely medium.

It’s no wonder why plaid tops are a fall fashion staple: they are incredibly easy to pair with leggings (or jeans), and are warm and cozy—perfect for campus wear. This Fashionista opted to pair the top with comfy solid black leggings and a pair of lace up boots. Because it was a bit chilly, she threw on a warmer jacket that pulls the outfit together. The effortless layering offers two different looks: one for class and one for navigating around campus in the cold.

Every piece of this outfit works with the other to create the perfect fall look. Removing the jacket when arriving at class offers dry clothing underneath, ensuring comfort until you’re back in bed. Casual pops of accessories are the cherry on top of this fall-themed outfit. The stylish necklace and simple ring are just enough for a trip to class from the dorms down the street. They work because they aren’t distracting or loud—two big no’s in the classroom. Rain can be a bother, but you just have to be prepared!
