The dog days of summer have finally passed, and now we’re embarking on a new season. Aside from the changing leaves and long-awaited arrival of pumpkin spice lattes, fall also ushers in a fresh crop of fashion trends.
As pretty as fall’s foliage may be, predicting the weather is easier said than done. Waking up for an 8 a.m. class (and downright chilly temperatures) can be brutal. Naturally, you pile on the layers. Once the afternoon hits, however, the sun is out and you’re left sweating in that chunky pullover that seemed like such a great idea only hours before.
So how does one stay warm in the morning and cool during the day? The answer is an open knit sweater – the perfect transitional staple to have in your closet. With see-through stitches and breathable panels, this wardrobe essential will have you prepared for any forecast. Check out the outfit inspiration below so that you won’t be left out in the cold!
Complete the look with an oversized leather bag that conveniently fits a notebook and all of your classroom essentials. Now, if only you could earn extra credit for your OOTD (outfit of the day, that is!).dELiA*s) to inject some life into your winter wardrobe of neutrals. Avoid making the biggest faux pas of the season (leggings paired with a certain brand of furry boots!) by layering your denim shorts over a chic pair of black tights. Opt for suede ankle boots and a stylish backpack for a look that has too-cool-for-school written all over it!
