When it's good enough for the runway, it's good enough for the streets of San Diego. After years of being told that mixing textures with patterns is a fashion faux pas, the runways have finally let us continue with taking clothing experimentation to another level. Today's Fashionista, Layla White, pulls together a casual look by pairing a flowy top with a solid black bandeau, jean shorts and fringe boots. Mixing jean shorts with various styles of brown boots is a great way to delicately mesh the end of the summer seaon with early fall fashion trends. Like Layla, topping off the look with an embellished headband or a cuff is a great way to subtlely add detail to an outfit without ruining the feel of femininity.

Head to Forever 21 for an embellished headband, and top off the look with a pair of fringe boots from Urban Outfitters. Tada! Perfection.
