Fall 2013 Style Inspiration: What to Wear to a Fashion Show (College Edition)

Hola Bombshells! My week is starting off to a rough start as this flip-flopping Los Angeles weather has me fighting off a mild cold. However, I’ve managed to pull together a fun and festive What to Wear post that I think you’ll enjoy.

Diamond writes, “I love your website and your “What to Wear” posts are always on point so I thought I would come to you guys for help. I will be attending a fashion show for one of my college’s student organizations and I wanted to know if you guys had any ideas on what to wear.”

You can always play it safe, opting for a pair of skinnies, a structured blazer, and a standard pump or stylish flat, but I wanted today’s style inspirations to be fun and fashion forward so I incorporated playful pieces for a standout look that’s stylish and daring.

For look #1, dress down a Topshop midi tulle skirt with a New York City graphic tee and platform ankle boots.

Sass things up with a faux fur appliqué leather clutch in a zebra print, Gold and Black Facet Gem Embossed Triangle Stud Earrings, and a black structured blazer.

Liven up a chambray top with a faux leather green pencil skirt and a Campaign camel coat for the perfect Fall ensemble.

Accent with a pair of color block pumps, a Golden Lane Large Duo clutch, and gold wind chime hoop earrings.

Bring together a few wardrobe staples to create a fashionable rocker chic look. Tap into a pair of burgundy coated skinny jeans and a sleeveless graphic tee for an edgy feel.

Add an unexpected twist with a leopard print coat, a metallic pointed toe ankle boot, and a complimenting handbag.

And if you must wear a pair of jeans and a structured blazer, make sure to offset them with a metallic oxford and a statement clutch.

A high neck blouse in a bold print, gold tassel earrings, and a multi ring set cap off this casually chic look.

And if attending a fashion show isn’t on your social calendar, these looks are always great for a fun night out in the city.
What do you think? Are these style suggestions fashion show worthy?
