Make it Maroon!

Fall has officially arrived in Blacksburg!

A color that I love to wear during the fall season is MAROON! Its rich shade compliments any skin tone and it is highly versatile. Plus, it is one of our school’s colors! Here are some ways you can incorporate maroon into your Fall wardrobe:

Break out your favorite pair of jeans for a casual outfit! Add a couple of your favorite accessories and you're ready to go!

If you choose to wear skinny jeans, pair them with brown booties. Again, they make your legs look longer and are another way to incorporate fall colors.

Want to dress up? Pair a maroon sweater with a high waisted skirt and stockings. Then, add contrasting accessories like light brown shoes and a purse, as shown above.

Investing in a maroon-colored purse is wise because you can mix and match it with several outfits. With this one accessory, you can easily make a fashion statement.

Not that many people wear maroon pants, but that makes them unique. Find yourself some maroon skinny jeans, wear a basic top, and a statement accessory (like the leopard print scarf shown here) and you are no doubt going to stand out in the crowd.

Want to be more comfortable? Trade the skinny jeans for leggings! Wear a chunky sweater and/or jacket and you will instantly dress up your outfit.
