It can be difficult when seasons are changing to know how to adjust your wardrobe accordinly, but this Fashionista has it down pat. She paried her infinity scarf with a light white sweater – the perfect imbetween of summer and fall.

Name: Ridhima Chopra

Year: Sophomore

Major: Criminal Justice

CollegeFashionista: What was your favorite collection at NY Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2012?

Ridhima Chopra: My favorite collection from NY Fashion Week was Cynthia Rowley. Her S/S 2012 collection was literally glowing  from the glamorous florals to the animated shapes and the mirror runway, the dresses were feminine and flawy yet so edgy.

CF: What blogs do you follow?

RC: I have two favorite blogs: The very famous, Sartorialist and The Man Repeller. The Sartorialist is great for candids and high fashion inspiration, it's real people with impeccable taste. I have a huge girl crush on Leandra Medine, who is the brain behind The Man Repeller. While I don't have the courage or the creativity to create outfits as original as hers, I admire people who can make fashion unique in a world of billions of people. Medine has influenced me to play with jewelry and get a bit more creative – certainly, less is not more!

CF: What trend are you most looking forward to for fall?

RC: Some of my favorite styles are making it big this season! I love a good peplum silhouette, finding one to suit different body types is hard, but it is a definite hit for the fall. While fun colors and prints are stilling going strong into fall, I am most excited for a lot of leather, lace and most importantly sheen!

How To: Pair a light sweater like this one from T by Alexander Wang with jeans and an infinity scarf. Grab a bag and throw on some flats and you'll be ready to transition into fall!
