While fall officially started on Wednesday, summer weather typically hangs around for a few weeks into the season. Take advantage of this time to wear bright colors, like this popsicle graphic T-shirt. Use the colors in the top to pair it with a bottom of a matching color. This shows that you put time into your outfit instead of just opting for blue or black jeans. Add a bandana around your neck or head and a pair of sneakers to compliment your summer look.

Like pattern-on-pattern, denim-on-denim is another fun and daring look. It’s also really easy to put together. Tops for this look could be denim shirts like this one or just a denim jacket buttoned up. Long shorts give a really edgy look, but shorter shorts or jeans work well too. Don’t think you have to stick with blue denim. Colored denim also fits the trend. Finish the look off with simple sneakers and a statement necklace.

Here’s another example of denim-on-denim, as well as of how it works with colored denim. Keeping the colors more neutral as opposed to patterned denim is another good tip when trying out this style.

One of the many trends for fall is fringe. The cool thing about fringe is that it can be present anywhere: skirts, shorts, tops, tank tops and even jewelry. Another great thing about fringe is that it is a fun DIY project. While the skirt here was bought, it can easily be made by cutting up a soft maxi skirt. The same applies with shirts. Whichever fringe piece you choose, try pairing it with basic pieces to let it be the true statement piece.

Another easy fashion idea is choosing one color for your outfit. This idea is versatile, which makes picking an outfit super-easy for rushed mornings before class. Flower crowns are also really cute with floral pieces, like this floral skirt. Enjoy wearing bright colors before dark colors sweep in with the fall weather!

Overalls: American Rag

Sunglasses: Ray Bans

Over the summer, shortalls were really big in the fashion world. If you also fell in love with this look, try transitioning to fall by investing in ones that are full-length overalls instead of shorts. They’ll keep you warm as the weather cools down and are great for layering cozy cardigans over.
