Fall Trend: Minimalism

Don't know about you guys but my back to school wardrobe pretty much consists of these reoccuring outfits. Dressing for school is all about being comfy yet cute. You want to be taken seriously but at the same time look chic. Leggings are obviously a go to item. You can wear them with just about anything. Right now I love to idea of full length leggings with an oversized shirt. Denim shirts are in... but I prefer menswear shirts. Give it a try!
Besides leggings, my go to item is skinny jeans! Skinny jeans look great with everything except extremely long shirts (shirts that look like dresses...). The best thing about skinny jeans are they pull together any outfit. No sloppiness here guys.
If your feeling flirty, try a voluminous skirt with tights. Boots keep you warm... and heck throw in an oversize cardi and your good to go =)
Another trend I've been seeing others wear lately... denim cut offs with tights. While I have never quite been a fan of this combo I must admit, when done right it is extremely cute. The key is to keep it simple and cover up on top please!

The key to minimalism is basic pieces that are not only majorly trendy at the moment, but also clothing that will last for years to come. Keep it simple but still incorporate your own flair. Quality matters. The trick to good basics is mixing in one trend at a time; be it a red shoe, lace up boots, forest green tee, or camel coat. Remember to have fun with fashion! Happy styling =)

Also, I'm dying to find a great, inexpensive pair of lace up boots. Preferably with a wedge so its easier to wear to school... Anyone know of any good pairs?!
