WHAT TO WEAR: Summer in September

As the summer gets old and the air grows cold, style and comfort are tough to align when the seasons begin to change. Since the exciting, yet a little sweaty, first few weeks of fall semester do not necessarily align with its “fall” label, summer weather will still linger through this September at Marist College. Try to beat the heat and still incorporate a taste of fall fashion this month just like this Fashionista has– finding a way to bring her carefree, beachy style and attitude to the classroom for the start of the semester.

Pairing classic denim Levi shorts with a flowy button-down, this Fashionista creates a beachy, cover-up look to wear comfortably to those 8:00 a.m classes when the sun is out and the humidity is high.

The autumn foliage-inspired earth tones of her shirt, combined with its oceanside style, create the perfect transitional look from summer to fall. The frayed ends of the top’s fabric bring a chic, worn-out look to the lazy mornings of walking to class alongside the river. Like this Fashionista, wear a light and thin shirt with some classic denim to not only craft a cute, relaxed look for your early morning and early season classes but also to really bring some beach vibes to relieve the stress of a new semester.

This Fashionista shows off her layered necklaces, featuring two Saint Christopher Medals and a bar necklace, to really personalize her classroom look. She also shows off her stacked bracelets, made of earthy stones and tones, and her silver wave-shaped ring. Some natural looking jewelry always adds a personal aspect to any outfit.

So this September, while the sun stays hot, stay cool on campus while still incorporating some summer inspiration. To help transition from watching the shore break to watching the leaves turn brown and red over the beautiful Hudson River, this Fashionista has nailed a look to ride through her classes as smoothly as the ocean waves.

Always stay RAD(ical, dude!), and let a relaxed style mimic a relaxed, stress-free fall semester!
