Something Schoolcore

Fall is the perfect time for a school-inspired look. Pair a gingham skirt with a turtleneck, crew-neck sweater, or a tucked-in button-down. Add an edge with a bomber, windbreaker, or leather jacket. Complete the look with Mary Janes, loafers, or sneakers.

Statement Outerwear

Elevate the timeless jeans-and-white-T-shirt combo with a statement outerwear piece. Choose a jacket in a bold color or with a fun pattern, making it the focal point of your outfit.

Denim Skirt

Embrace the denim skirt trend, especially in maxi lengths. Style it with a white button-down, T-shirt, or go for a collegiate look with a varsity sweater or cozy half-tucked sweater.

Sweater Dress

Cozy up in a sweater dress during chilly weather. Pair it with knee-high boots for a classic look or sneakers/flats for a more laid-back vibe. Consider adding a brown leather jacket for extra warmth.

A Pair of Cargo Pants

Cargo pants are making a comeback. Pair them with a basic tank top and experiment with accessories and outerwear. Add a one-shoulder slouchy sweater for a softer touch or layer with an oversized cardigan or denim jacket.

Matching Set
