STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Autumn Hues

Each passing day means less warm days filled with shorts and sandals and more boots, sweaters, tights and pants. Personally I am excited by the opportunity to pull out all of the clothes that I retired at the end of the winter.  

This Fashionista also seems to be excited by this! Through her neutral colors and deep purples, it is obvious that she is ready to jump knee deep into falls hottest clothing options. The main focus of her look is the Missoni-esque purple and grey sweater that she is wearing. Sweaters are one of falls largest staples, so I encourage everyone to get a variety of shapes, sizes, and styles. A baggy sweater is a great option to wear to class. This is so because while it is still visually appealing it is also a comfortable option when you have to head to that dreaded 8:30 class. Large boyfriend style cardigans are also an awesome idea because they can be worn over a t-shirt or a blouse. Also, I advise that everyone take a cue from this Fashionista and branch out for just plain neutral colors. Try to incorporate rich fall colors like plum, orange, red, etc. into your sweater collection!

Knee high flat boots, like this Fashionista’s, are amazing because they are stylish but also very practical. Flat boots are comfortable and in the winter they can act as protection from the snow. (Be sure to find some nice warm high socks to wear under them!) My personal favorite brand for boots is Frye, they offer every color and style imaginable. Now to wear these types of boots it is critical to have the right style of pants. This is where skinny-legged pants come into play; therefore I suggest leggings, skinny khakis, corduroys or jeans. Either one of those options would look adorable with knee-high boots and are perfect for the fall and winter.

This Fashionista accessorized with a large cross body bag. A purse like this one is perfect for walking around campus because it fits everything you need! This season there are many different styles to choose from, I suggest an animal print or bright colored bag.
