STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Fall Flair

As Fashionista/os everywhere are beginning to pull out their jeans and scarves to prepare for the fall, it’s hard not to notice the intermeshed seasonal styles. Today's Fashionista pulls off the changing of seasons perfectly. Wearing a cotton peacoat, cropped-turtleneck and suede boat shoes, she’s ready to bring in the fall without straying too far from summer by also rocking a pair of turquoise jean shorts. The studs emit an edgy look and, with a simplistic black top and tights, the bright color fails to be overwhelming.

I have always been a huge fan of high-waisted shorts. High-waisted shorts have been around since the 1940s and, without a doubt, have made a huge comeback onto the fashion scene. They're the perfect way to bring in the fall by showing a bit of summer color, but easy enough to pair with tights to stay warm. I bought my favorite pair of high-waisted jean shorts at a vintage pop-up shop in London. For something closer to home with a British flair, check out ASOS’s shorts collection. New York-style? I'm in love with these vintage cut-offs from Denim & Supply by Ralph Lauren. If you’re not too sure what your shorts style is yet, I recommend looking into Urban Outfitters' great collection, which includes a pair similar to today's Fashionista that you can check out here.

When wearing high-waisted shorts, make sure you are wearing a pair that suits your body type. The most flattering way to wear them is buying a pair that fits snuggly, but baggy shorts can also exude a more casual feel. Wearing a cropped top or tucking in a longer shirt is essential to pull off this look. Finishing it off with a skinny belt and a pair of Converse or low boots (combat boots anyone?!) is the best way to accessorize for the fall.

If you’re looking to bring in the fall with a bit of flair like today's Fashionista, check out this great find on Etsy. Add a neutral color pair of tights, a simple cropped top and a cute shoulder bag, and you’re ready to bring in the fall.
