It’s that time of year again, when we buy our textbooks, puzzle out equations on chalkboards, and pass notes during Geography! This year we are heading back to school in beautiful style. Right around now we start thinking about how to update our wardrobes with fall layering essentials and fun takes on structured classics, whether we are headed to Literature 101 or the office. Fall is a season to dress with class, and for class, so we have put together a back to school feature bursting with fall fashion inspiration!
One trend we love this fall is incorporating our summer brights into fall ensembles. Pair brightly hued accessories like a bag and charming flats, with a classic, tailored outfit for a fun pop of color. And don’t put your summer denim away just yet: a chambray button up can be layered over a dress, tucked into a pencil skirt, or become the perfect companion to eclectic printed pants for a polished back to school outfit!
P.s. It’s adorably preppy to button your chambray all the way up, and add a bit of sparkle with a statement necklace.
Every autumn, as the temperatures get a little chillier, we reach for our tights to add warmth to fall outfits. But instead of always opting for classic black, we adore choosing textures, patterns, and bold colors for our tights. Our favorite back to school silhouettes are sophisticated staples like pencil skirts and peplum. We are also gravitating toward style combinations that allow us to express our personality, like flirty florals layered over colorful tights and retro inspired skirts with fun retro tops.
Another fall must-have for the office or class is a pair of Oxford pumps or flats. With just the right amount of menswear influence to balance out feminine silhouettes and details, Oxford pumps will easily be one of the cutest, most versatile pair of shoes in your closet.
We hope our feature, Take Note, fills you with style inspiration for cute but appropriate 9-5 attire or for stepping onto campus with confidence this fall! Browse our back to school fashion feature to help put together outfits for the coziest of seasons and shop our collection of fall staples like ankle boots, bright accessories, pencil skirts, cardigans, tights, and of course the perfect purse to tote all your daily essentials.
