STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Bright and Breezy for Back to School

Nothing screams summer like a neon miniskirt paired with a breezy, sheer top. Although this Fashionista looks effortless and adorable in this cheerful ensemble, she is going to have to tweak her look for the fall – after all, classes start mere days from now. By swapping out her sky-high wedges for nude ballet flats and her colorful satchel for a playful laptop case, she will be ready to hit the books in style.

While integrating summer classics with items appropriate for the classroom is a must for the fall, these key pieces should not solely be reserved for daytime. As we BU Fashionistas and Fashionistos know, chic going-out outfits are essential for weekends in the city. For a flirty alternative to your standard LBD, combine your candy-colored mini with a top done in an equally bold hue. Tone down the brightness of this look by topping it off with black staples such as opaque tights and sexy patent leather heels.

Feeling daring? Hop on one of this season’s biggest trends: animal print. Glam up your gauzy blouse with a pair of leopard print skinny jeans and killer red platforms, accented by an armful of bangles or statement earrings – suddenly your laid-back summer top is ready for a night out on the town.

Whether you prefer bar-crawling, frat-hopping or simply doing homework in Mugar Library, outfits that marry the fun, easy-going spirit of summer with the latest fall fashions will undoubtedly turn heads.
