Next, let's look at Morgan Robinson's look. She is a guest contributor on the WV Style Team blog and writes her own blog, Charming Charleston.
Morgan dubbed her look "hipster," and said it is a great transitional look that could function in many settings. Whether going on a date, heading to a football game or just running errands, this look can take you anywhere.
About her choices, Morgan said, "The long cardigan can be worn dressed up or down, and the length makes it totally acceptable to pair with dark brown leggings and boots for an even more comfortable outfit. The cross-body bag is large enough to serve as a carryall for fall, but lightweight enough that it won't hurt your shoulder after a day of cider sipping or shopping!"
WV Style Team contributor Dennise Smith took the jacket in a dressier direction with an outfit that could easily transition from the office to an evening out.
Dennise said, "My goal was to find an outfit that was comfy but kind of rock 'n' roll. I chose a basic black camisole so these chunky layered necklaces could share center stage with the skirt. Since the color scheme was very neutral, I chose the cherry-red pumps and teal handbag for pops of color."
Sarah Francke, Style Team contributor and our on-the-spot photographer, chose an outfit based on comfort and style. Her look is perfect for a night on the town.
Skinny black trousers and spiky shoes make for an edgy club look. However, the look is still tame enough to swing by cocktail hour and meet up with your officemates. A switch to ballet flats would even allow you to run a few quick errands at the mall.
I chose my look based on comfort, functionality and my own, slightly hippie, sense of style. Like all the members of the team, I started with the jacket and perused the racks of Target looking for inspiration.
I encourage you always to think outside the box. I happened upon an adorable Liz Lange maxi dress in the maternity section! Paired with a belt and sweater, it becomes flattering and sleek. Don't limit yourself. Look everywhere for things you like -- kids', women's, maternity, men's. The sky -- and your imagination -- are your only limits.
