Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few weeks, you probably have seen the endless coverage of the infamous hurricane Sandy. Fittingly dubbed “Frankenstorm” with its Halloween week arrival to the East coast and Northeast, you can be certain that if you reside anywhere from New Jersey to New York all the way down to Western Pennsylvania, you will be feeling the wrath of this treacherous storm, and so will your wardrobe. For all of us in the Pittsburgh area, it's important to be prepared and ready for the long trek to the Cathedral of Learning. This week's Fashionista's printed scarf and rain boot combo is smart and safe, perfect for the atrocious weather conditions.

Pairing her skull infused scarf with a soft, mint green sweater, black leggings and black Hunter rain boots, this Fashionista is ready for the torrential downpour and upcoming holiday festivities.

Dressing for terrible weather can leave you pretty dreary (no pun intended). Throwing on sweats and an oversized poncho is a tempting option when you have to squint in order to make out what lays past the sheets of rain in front of you, but don’t let that discourage you. Opt for more comfortable pieces like this Fashionistas simple black leggings and oversized knit sweater. Both materials provide you with comfort, flexibility and warmth.

Furthermore, dressing for holidays can not only be entertaining, but also give you a creative outlet to release all of those holiday ideas and outfits that you didn’t get a chance to try. Trust me ladies, any holiday is an excuse to dress up and add a little extra funk that you wouldn’t normally sport.

Emulate this Fashionista by sporting a Halloween-inspired outfit appropriate for the stormy weather to come. Try paring this skeleton printed one-piece with a pair of comfortable skinny jeans. Throw on a sweater or button-down to add some warmth to your look.

Most importantly, it’s imperative to stay smart and stay safe if your campus is located on or anywhere near the East coast. To all of you other Fashionistas, keep the East coast in your thoughts and maybe offer us some help on how we can keep reinventing the rain boot, because it doesn’t seem like Sandy’s rainy weather is going anywhere anytime soon.
