As you switch your closet from summer to winter, be sure to leave out some dresses. In addition to the sweater of sweater weather, dresses can be included in many ways. A dress can be a great way to layer over a cardigan and under a heavy coat. This can be done with a heavy wool coat or even just a leather jacket. Try sticking with darker colors for more of a fall look. Add tights and finish the look off with boots.

Another alternative to sweaters is cardigans. With fall fashion comes plenty of fuzzy printed ones or just neutral tones. These are great to throw over any top or dress to stay warm in the breeze when walking across campus. Pair it with jeans for a quick fix and you’re out the door.

When it is mid-October, Mother Nature blesses us with some beautiful days where tights can be skipped. Instead, opt for knee high boots to keep your legs warm. A great way to reuse those summer dresses are with another fall essential – scarves. Throw on a cardigan and you’re good to go.

Top: African Ancient
Pants: Against All Odds
Boots: Dr. Martens

A great fashion inspiration is using pieces from other countries or homemade ones. These can be found at specialty shops or thrift stores. Using one-of-a-kind article of clothing as a statement piece makes the rest of the outfit easy. Just pair it with a pair of jeans or leggings. Alternatively, if your statement piece is a fun pair of pants, opt for a neutral top, like a white or black sweater.

Fashion is all about self expression, so it’s always fine to break the rules. If you have white pants and you love them, wear them after Labor Day. Distressed bottoms look great with chunky knit sweaters, especially open knit ones. Try a fun colored one or go for a black and white look. Finish the look off with cute booties.

Dress and hat: Forever 21
Choker: Claire’s
Necklace: Icing
Boots: Steve Madden

Here’s another outfit for one of those beautiful days. Use a dress as a statement piece and keep your other pieces simple. This look is great because it keeps with a black-and-white theme. The white is the statement piece and the choker, hat and boots are all simpler black accessories. Try this tactic with other outfits, even just jeans and a top.
