Shopping for your size and specific body shape can be extremely difficult, especially since fashion mags, advertisements, and even in-store displays usually push outfits that look great on girls who are relatively tall and skinny. For petite girls, it's hard find clothes that are both flattering and stylish - especially when you don't have the body of shorty celebs like Nicole Richie and Hayden Panettiere!
While I'm enjoying summer's warm weather, there is one thing I'm really excited about for fall: cozy, oversized sweaters. I know, I shouldn't wish away the summer months, but seeing all those fall clothes out on the racks is getting me super pumped for sipping a hot coffee in my fall wardrobe on the way to class. Sigh.
While hoodies don't exactly have a rep for being fashionable, every girl has a few in her closet. They are pretty much THE staple in every college wardrobe since they are comfy, warm, and easily slip on over whatever you wore to bed last night. Even hardcore fashionistas have lazy days!
Throwing some tights in the mix is insanely cheaper than buying a new wardrobe and you can really create tons of new outfits with just a few pairs. Tights can function merely to keep your legs warm when it gets chilly while also adding style with bright colors and patterns.

When summer rolls around, boots get shoved to the back of the closet along with heavy coats, sweaters, and scarves. But who these days can afford to buy a wardrobe for each season? And who wants to give up wearing the fabulousness that is a hot pair of boots for nearly half of the year?

Fall merchandise will be arriving in stores over the next few weeks, and while it may be tempting to run out and get a whole new back to school wardrobe, don't! Wait for sales to begin, and shop in your closet instead. One item that the majority of college girls have in their closets are leggings.

Long necklaces, like these from J. Crew, can add glamour to any basic look: a cardigan and tank, a dress, even a pantsuit (if, you know, you're going for the Hilary Clinton look...)! But there are several other uses for long necklaces, as well. You just have to think outside the box a little bit.
Are you sick of waking up in the morning with black feet/someone else's chewed up gum between your toes? Perhaps you should invest in a pair of Fit In Clouds fold-up flats.
The best outfits happen when you mix two contrasting styles to create something totally new. Recently, the feminine yet edgy trend has been spotted on many celebs, including Demi Lovato and Lindsay Lohan. The leather jacket adds a tough element to a floral dress, making a new and totally unique look.
I know there is a serious anti-summer-scarf movement out there, but I am not a part of it. I love scarves - yes, even in the summer. They are really versatile pieces and can really add a lot to an otherwise boring wardrobe.And they can be incorporated in many ways - not just tying those suckers around your neck.
So, long skirts were in style at some point in the last 5 years and you somehow have, like, 12 taking up space in the back of your closet. You're obvi more into the show-off-your-legs kinda skirts these days, but you can't bear to part with them. You don't have to - in fact, they could be the most versatile pieces in your entire wardrobe!
Everyone has a basic white tank, like this classic Theory top, in their wardrobe. Maybe you wear it under a sweater, or with sweats on a lazy day. However, that basic white tank is not reaching its full fashion potential. Such a versatile piece can be worn in so many different ways, it's like having ten outfits in one!
It's (finally) June, which means shorts weather is fast approaching! I personally find it hard to spend a lot of money on shorts. I mean, they're like 1/3 of a pair of pants for a similar price. Scam? I think so. Plus, they can only be worn for a few months a year. I'd rather invest in jeans or tops I can layer that work year-round.
