As October comes to an end, we are given new opportunities and the new styles of November! As opposed to summer, bottoms-wise we are sort of confined to jeans for the next few months. Not exactly complaining, but leggings are the perfect solution to an overdose on denim. Just the right fit for showing off those toned calves and thinning out the figure. Don a pair of leggings with an elongated button up, and then slim your waist with a thin leather belt. Contrast colors by making the button up a standout pattern or color, then neutralizing the rest of the outfit.
College Budget tip: By sticking to vibrant colors versus loud patterns, you can layer and wear the piece of clothing much more often. The most popular fall trend I’ve seen thus far is the lace up leather boots. Dorothy Perkins makes this fabulous pair of suede grey boots; a bit pricy, but great quality and very versatile. They look fierce tucked over skinnies or leggings- a fresher appeal to boots contrasting the ever popular UGG. Carrying on the feather trend, take them from your hair and tie them to your necklace! Very Native American/Thanksgiving-esque. Finish the casual-chic outfit with a boxy silver bag and a vintage ring. The elements of this outfit are perfect for strolling to class, grabbing a salted caramel latte, or browsing through a pumpkin patch.
