Glad to see you again, October! Confession time: I am excited the weather is getting a little colder because that means pulling out all my cozy nits, wearing fun tights, and looking at pretty autumn colours.
Typically I'm not a fan of slouchy cardigans, but I loved this polka dot cardi from Forever 21 because of the pattern. This season, avoid bland colours for cardis and instead try one in a fun pattern. This way you can be comfy and still look stylish. This schoolgirl dress from American Eagle right colour and density of fabric to keep you warm and fall-approriate. This cardigan leaves me a little shapeless so I use a belt (Army & Navy) to cinch my waist.
Finally, never leave your legs bare in fall. Not only will your skin become dry, you will just about freeze to death! When people don't wear tights during cold weather, they look about as ridiculous as someone wearing fall tights in boiling hot weather. But hey, tights are fun to wear and one of my favourite pieces of the season. I wear bright red tights paired with Naturalizer combat boots for a preppy autumn look.
This outfit is perfect if you are a librarian...or for going to school or work on a Friday. Almost any type of hair works with this outfit, but I chose ponytail to keep it simple to leave the focus on the bright tights and eye-catching pattern of the cardigan.
