TREND: Bringing the Heat in Miami

While you may be inclined to pack away your summer wardrobe once fall rolls around, this doesn't have to be the case. One of the great things about Miami is the weather is always warm, the sun is always shining and your summer staples never go out of style.

The a/w 2010 runways have been taken over by the “prim and proper” look and designers have incorporated shorts in different styles (wool and thick cottons). Shorts just above the knee are a must this this fall and winter.

As the time for finals have arrived and the library crowds, our CollegeFashionistas need to remain cool and comfortable.

This Fashionista is weather and season appropriate by pairing her jean shorts with a floaty long sleeved shirt. Her shorts are a fabulous alternative from sweatpants. Pairing a long sleeved tee shirt like this one strikes the right balance between summer and fall. It’s an ideal outfit to enjoy the breeze as you study outside.

To Miami Fashionistas:  This is one of the few places where not only can you get away with wearing your shorts in the fall but also wear sandals!

If you want to remain in this seasons style but also enjoy showing some skin, you can pair your shorts with fall staples, such as: long sleeve shirts (like today's Fashionista), sweaters, tights or boots. With the right layers, your summer shorts can adjust comfortably into the fall season. 

For an alternative in styling your jean shorts, try layering on a cardigan (for both for warmth, comfort and additional color). Finish off your studious-glam look with a pair of boots and a textured shoulder bag to carry your books.

Urban Outfitters has a great selection of shorts for your fall wardrobe. You can find jean shorts or  try a warmer pair of shorts such as these fabulous patterned shorts.

Hint:  If shorts in the fall seem like an enigma for you, try out other fall accessories mentioned such as, tights or knee-high socks. You can pair them with a blazer and a fitted tee. Finish off your look with a pair of oxfords or combat boots (for an edgy style). This outfit will be perfectly versatile for school as well as any other occasion.
