The Beauty of Layering

I think everyone can agree that the best part of fall fashion is layering. The weather can range from chilly, grey mornings to summer like afternoons all in one day. The best solution to this: lots of layers. I love this outfit, because it keeps the eye’s attention as the colors and fabrics blend together to create a whole look. I started with the black and white striped skort and added the draped white top to complement the asymmetrical cut. To add a pop of fall color, I layered a burgundy leather jacket perfect for fall mornings. Try an outfit like this for long day on campus or spending time exploring the city!

Faux Furs for Fall

Hands down, one of the biggest trends of the season has been faux fur. Over the past year, the trend has been rapidly increasing in popularity, but now it’s bigger than ever. Fur was seen on nearly every fall runway this year, from Alexander McQueen to Tom Ford. In the past, fur was often seen as overly eccentric and hard to style. One of the easiest ways to incorporate fur into your wardrobe is with a fur vest. Fall is all about layering, so adding this over a pair of leggings, jeans, or even a summery dress to give it a fall vibe is easily achievable. Another great way to wear fur in the colder months is in a tasteful coat, scarf, or gloves. It always makes for a unique and chic statement piece.
