When I am out snapping photos of Fashionistas and Fashionistos, I often find what makes an outfit unique is the individual's ability to incorporate two seemingly different looks into a single cohesive ensemble.
Take this Fashionista for example. The masculine meets feminine look has a favorite of Fashionistas for some time now. And there's no wonder why. This Fashionista incorporates this season's must have summer staples as a fresh take on the mix and match trend. Her skirt's high-low hemline is in every Fashionista's closet (or at least should be) and is a juxtaposition of trends all in itself. Is it a mini? Is it a maxi? No its both! She takes the look the whole new level by pairing the girly floral pattern of the skirt with heavy military boots and loose fitting black top.
On college budget, it is important to get as much use out of your clothes as possible. Pairing your favorite summer pieces with heavier fall pieces allows you to take your favorite clothes into the new school year.
