In my opinion the best part about summer is that it leads into fall. I suppose I enjoy a warm day and an afternoon at the beach as much as the next girl, but there is something about the crisp breezes and rich colors of fall that no other season can touch. Another reason I love fall is because I still associate it with “Back to School”. While I haven’t personally had to hit the books in a few years, whenever the leaves start to turn I always find myself getting a bit nostalgic for classic campus style.
It seems I’m not the only one affected by this either. From the rising popularity in tried and true Americana style to the release of the sequel to “The Preppy Handbook”, polos, khakis and dress jackets are once again finding their way into the greater fashion subconscious. As a way to keep the look updated and fresh (think more Band of Outsiders, less dinner at the country club), opt for trousers in looser boyfriend cuts , experiment with patterned and textured fabric for your jackets and don’t be afraid to put a new spin on a classic, like our Judy skirt with asymmetrical pleats.
