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!

Mixing it up

Just like the average girl, I always get sick of jeans. Although they’re arguably classic, they’re usually far from comfortable and overdone. I like being able to have other options to change up my look besides just wearing a skirt rather than jeans. Over the past year, I’ve been experimenting with cigarette pants, palazzos, and harem pants and they’ve definitely been a worthwhile investment to my wardrobe. They’re a variety of silhouettes, so it’s been a great way to take advantage of other items in my closet to pair with them. But definitely the most important benefit of harems are how comfortable they are! They’re not restricting like jeans and cigarette pants, but just as comfortable as your favorite pair of yoga pants. Comfort and fashion; the ultimate duo. I styled these cotton harems with a white crop top, oxblood leather jacket, and some of my favorite chunky, gold jewelry. Try pairing them with a cropped sweater and pair of booties for the colder weather!
