Denim mini skirts are one of the biggest trends right now. They are versatile in that you can easily dress them up or down with the right accessories. A great casual look is to wear your denim mini with a pair of Vans.
Boots will keep you warm when the weather gets cooler but they also give your look a bit of an edge. Booties are a great dressier option, while a Timberland style is great for walking around all day in your more casual outfit.
Beanies are the perfect statement piece for any fall outfit. As the weather gets cooler a beanie is a way to stay warmer while still looking cute. Not to mention that they are PERFECT if you aren't having a good hair day!
Jean jackets are great for when the weather starts to get cooler but isn't super cold yet. Think about layering the jacket over a short sleeved shirt. They look great with skirts and pants and really add that extra something to your look.
You obviously don't need to stick with neutral tones for your fall wardrobe, like I did here. But if you do, there is the added benefit of everything going with everything else.

I often look at my closet, overflowing with clothes, and think: "I have nothing to wear." But a great way to combat this problem is to take a staple item and style it in different ways. Take the t-shirt, for example
T-shirts are cute, comfortable, and easy to wear. You probably have a ton of them; I sure do! T-shirts are super versatile...so lets take a shirt out of your t-shirt hoarding pile and style it different ways. I grabbed this black "coke" shirt from Forever 21. Here are a bunch of different ways to wear it.
Look 1: Out & About
Look 2: Classy but Sassy
Take the same black shirt and pair it with a fitted skirt with a cute ruffle, and a pair of suede flat and all of a sudden you've taken a casual look up a notch. Depending on your job, you could wear this to work, and it would be great for going out to dinner at the end of the day.
Again I kept my makeup and hair pretty natural with this outfit. A pale pink lip makes sense when you are wearing shoes that are in the same tones.
Look 3: Night Out
Finally, a fun hairstyle for this look is a half up top-knot. The key to this look is that the knot isn't too perfect-- messy is good here, and be sure to wave the bottom part that's left down.
Don't be afraid to style your t-shirt in tons of different ways. Fashion is all about trying new things and exploring. Go find your unique style!
