WHAT TO WEAR: The Black Parade

WHAT TO WEAR: The Black Parade

Thinking of what to wear in the month of October? October is when we fall in love with the season of fall (pun intended), where we all celebrate Halloween, enjoy everything pumpkin spice and become layer slayers to embrace the chilly weather.

When we think of October, we would immediately think of Halloween. However, this year’s October is also a special month for the ’90s kids—it is the month (October 23 to be exact) of the famous American rock band My Chemical Romance’s album The Black Parade’s 10th anniversary, ’til this day the band’s placement in rock history and within us millennials and college students are still assured.

I spotted this Fashionista on my way to class, and her black and maroon rock style outfit certainly caught my attention. This Fashionista rocks all the colors and essential clothings for fall: a leather jacket and booties. She wears a burgundy peter pan collar skater dress from Forever 21; the black collar adds a hint of contrast and edgy look to the dress, and it keeps the whole outlook simple yet attractive—who needs a necklace when you have a collar?

To add a hint of edginess and rocker-chic vibe to contrast the femininity of the dress, this Fashionista wears a black leather jacket from Forever 21 on top, which is also perfect for the breezy weather when the leaves fall and the wind blows. The black suede boots she wears from Blondo is also an autumn-hue staple for a day-to-night outfit—the block heels add height while keeping them comfortable to walk on. In addition, the soft and sophisticated suede material is versatile and adds a dose of glam and luxe to the outfit, a perfect pairing with this Fashionista’s black wool felt hat from Aldo that adds a touch of warmth to the coolness of the black.

Many fans and rock bands from all over the world are paying tribute to My Chemical Romance this month. I think this outfit best represents the band, and it is also the perfect outfit for fall.
