One minute you’re sweating and the next you’ve got the chills. Sounds familiar? Fashionistas and Fashionistos are in the middle of a fashion crisis: how to dress in between seasons. This period is not only an awkward time to put together looks, but can be tempting to stick to only your summer or fall clothes. When I spotted this Fashionista on campus, we chatted about this difficult time. Despite the challenging situation, this Fashionista was eager to share her fashion tips during this tricky transition.

CollegeFashionista: What is your favorite season to dress for and why?
Alanna Staiman: My favorite season to dress for is in between summer and fall. I love wearing my favorite summer floral dresses with fall jackets and boots. I like pairing these items together because they bring out both style and color from both seasons.
CF: How do you stay stylish yet comfortable for class?
AS: I like to wear comfortable shorts or leggings depending on the weather. I usually dress them up with cute tops and sweaters that have a design, graphic print or bright color.
CF: Who is your favorite designer and what’s your favorite item from that designer?
AS: I don’t have a favorite designer, but I love BCBGMAXAZRIA. Literally everything I own is from there. My favorite items are their bandage skirts and printed shorts. They are both great going-out pieces.
CF: Who are some of your celebrities you draw fashion inspiration from?
AS: Blake Lively, Mila Kunis and Leighton Meester.
How To: Putting together a flirty, feminine in-between season look like this Fashionista’s is quite easy. Start with a floral summer dress like Brandy Melville’s Jada dress. Try pairing the dress with suede booties for a touch of sophistication. Finish the outfit off with a great army-inspired jacket. In no time, you’ll be looking trendy on campus.
