What are you most looking forward to for fall fashion? "Definitely hats, jackets, boots, and sweaters: the fall essentials."

What is your favorite season to dress for? "Right now I am looking forward to winter, but I'm sure once it gets cold I will want it to be summer again."

Do you have any advice for students on how to look nice at school? "Find a style you like. It’s really not as hard as you think to wear the clothes you like. I buy so many clothes that I always want to wear [and I wear] them as often as I can."

Elements of Kaylene's Outfit

1. Burgundy Hat

Kaylene loves her hats and this burgundy one is perfect for fall. It adds some fashion-forward flair to her ensemble and the color and material look so luxe. This is Kaylene's favorite hat and it's easy to see why.

2. Lace Embellished Shirt

With so much attention on her bold accessory, Kaylene balances it out with her seemingly "plain" white tee. But check out those pretty lace sleeves! This top adds so much texture and depth to her outfit, as well as a dose of femininity.

3. Gladiator Sandals

The weather is still fairly warm here in Nevada, and these sandals are a stylish way to ease the transition to the cooler months of the year. Kaylene wore her Target sandals all summer and isn't ready to pull out her boots quite yet. These shoes are the perfect finishing touch to this early fall ensemble.
