Although the sun is still shining and hotter than normal days for this time of year, summer attire needs to be put to rest.
Fall fashion is underway and there are some styles that need to be put back in the closet.
It is time to put away your floral print patterns and midriff baring looks and break out the scarves and boots.
Ladies, we all love summer for being able to wear short tops that displayed our killer abs we worked so hard for during the summer, but the midriff look is a huge fashion risk during fall.
If you must wear these stomach baring tops, I suggest pairing it with high wasted jeans to not cross the line from fall to summer of your stomach is showing.
There is a time and a place for this look , if it is too cold for the beach it is too cold for crop tops.
This season, we are seeing a wide variety of animal prints ranging from everything from purses, shirts, pants, and even lingerie. Cheetah print can be found at almost every store you walk into now.
It is important to know your limits and how much of one pattern to wear.
If you decide to wear an animal print, limit how much of the pattern you will be displaying. It is not a good idea to drown yourself in any one print.
Same goes for floral prints.Dresses with such designs are a huge fashion no.
According to E News’ Fashion Police, when Nicole Richie was photographed wearing a fall patterned neck high dress, she was said to have every color of fall on her and it was not well liked by the fashion experts.
Now, we all love our leggings but the big fashion trend right now is patterned leggings which come across very loud and represent a gaudier look.
Such trends can be found at stores like Charlotte Russe, Forever 21 and Wet Seal.
All styles can also be found at a reasonable price where you can buy a whole outfit for under $100 at the previous mentioned stores.
Although these are trending right now, you must be careful how you wear such an extreme style.
I asked two students with opposing views on the topic of patterned leggings.
Tamara Guerrero favored the patterned leggings saying that they are “fun” and that she loves all the different styles of leggings there are.
Nicole Cortinas however did not favor patterned leggings by saying, “They draw too much attention and it’s hard to find a top that will match.”
It is also important to dress for your body type and some of these patterns may not flatter certain body types.
Even wearing basic solid color leggings can be risky. If you are to wear leggings, you must be sure to wear a long top.
Tights are not considered to act as pants therefore no one should be seen wearing tights with a basic top even if it’s longer than average.
With fall attire here, we are all excited to bring out the boots that have been packed away all summer yet it is now time to put away those sandals.
Sandals should not be worn when you’re all bundled up in fall clothes it downplays the look of the entire outfit.
Fall fashion is fun and it’s okay to be creative, however it is important to not cross any fashion lines and dress suitable for the season.
