TREND: A Fall Feel

As summer inches closer towards fall, our fashion begins to display a slightly warmer feel. Left and right the streets are filled with fabulous summer knits and boots, two trends that aren’t normal on these hot summer days. To most Fashionista's surprise, knits were a huge hit on the spring/summer 2011 runways.

Sporting a fall-inspired look, this Fashionista gave knits and boots a chic, cool feel. Although the New York City summer heat can at times be unbearable, she looked calm and comfortable walking the streets. I love her blend of elegance and roughness. She toughened a pretty knit dress with biker boots, one of this summer's biggest trends. Adding to her already rocker look, she wore silver studded jewelry, but was careful not to over-accessorize.

There are multiple ways to get this Fashionista's look. Some of you may be thinking, "long sleeve knits in summer are impossible." But this season's knit is so easily wearable. If a dress is your style, try this one from Urban Outfitters. It’s an easy summer knit that wont strain the body during the summer. Another easy way to incorporate knit is by pairing a summer sweater with a fresh pair of shorts. To top off the look, add a tough pair of biker boots, throw on a cool necklace and head out the door.

Hint: Looking for fall pieces can be fun and easy, but it doesn’t mean you have to be bundled and overheated. Try to go for breathable knits that don’t hug the body. This way, you’ll beat the summer heat and look effortlessly chic while doing it.
