Fashion in the Forest: Chic for Cheap II

A new month and a new season: Fall is here, which means the BEST season for fashion has arrived (plus a whole new catalogue of trends following NY Fashion Week!!). 

So check out the second edition of Chic for Cheap to find some affordable looks!


Olivia Palermo, fashion blogger & socialite 


Breaking Down the Look:

The mustard-yellow pops against the red blouse; Olivia has been known to value a pop of color, and this outfit is no exception. Relaxed, light-wash, rolled up jeans balance out the formal top to make this an accessible look for the collegiette.

Olivia’s shoes are also an excellent hue for Fall. She hasn’t gone black and wintery yet, but still reflects the switch from lighter summer colors. We’ll skip the bag as an accessory because, to be honest, no collegiette is going to carry a small handbag around campus. You have classes, so prioritize with a backpack or tote.
