Top: Forever 21
I remember trying out this look as a little kid. When you didn’t want to hold your jacket, you’d tie it around your waist. Well, fashion often repeats itself and this trend will probably be around for a while. Instead of jackets, most people opt for flannels. This looks great with all different outfits, but with denim shorts specifically. Try it with cutoffs, a white top and combat boots. If the chilly weather comes around, opt for tights underneath.
Hat: passed down
Just about everyone has that vintage piece that maybe came from a family member from when they were your age
or maybe it came from a thrift store. Regardless, an easy way to pick an outfit is finding a statement piece like a vintage one. Next time you’re having trouble, dig out mom’s old jacket, your grandfather’s old fedora or the shoes you thrifted last weekend. It should definitely inspire the rest of your outfit.
Tank and sunglasses: Kohl’s
Skirt: Forever 21
Did you just get a new pair of brightly-colored sunglasses? Try using them to coordinate an outfit. Here, the sunglasses match perfectly with the skirt and the shoes match the top. Try using colors or patterns to give you inspiration by looking at just one piece. Small details like this make outfits look a lot more put together, but at the same time are easy to do.
Shirt: Forever 21
Scarf: World Market
Printed or distressed, denim is an easy go-to because it is b best when paired with a neutral top. If you don’t own distressed denim, consider making your own to save money. Crop jeans by rolling them up and finish the look off with sandals or classic converse

Sheep bowtie: Amazon
Shorts: American Eagle
Shoes: Polo Ralph Lauren
As we hit mid-September, the weather can get chilly, even with the sun out. It’s cardigan weather. Long sleeves and shorts look really unique together and are really easy and comfortable in the air conditioning of University Hall. Bowties and collars make the look more classic and give it that school uniform look. Try keeping the colors simple and match the cardigan to the bowtie. Finish the look with canvas sneakers.
Dress: TJ Maxx
Bracelets: Alex and Ani, grandmother and Europe
Socks: Urban Outfitters
Leather jackets always spice up any outfit. Mix more girly articles of clothing, like skirts and dresses, with one for a unique look. This is also a really quick pairing when you can’t decide what to wear. Finish the look with knee socks and booties and you’re out the door.
