Kick off the school year your way by adding new skirts and denim jackets to your closet options.
Separately, skirts and jackets can add a fresh take to your typical jeans and a t-shirt vibe, but together they create an outfit allllllmost too good to be true. Just add a top for layering, your favorite accessories, and a fresh pair of sneakers and you’re good to go.
Denim on Denim
What’s better than one denim piece in your ‘fit? How about two? Wear a denim skirt with a denim jacket to double dip in this iconic material. Create a timeless, laid-back look by starting with a long sleeve cropped t-shirt, then layer on a distressed mini skirt and a classic medium-wash denim jacket. Throw on athletic sneakers and a baseball cap and you’re set for whatever the day brings.
Striped with Love
Midi skirts hit somewhere between a shorter mini skirt and a longer maxi skirt for that free, flowy feeling and just the right amount of between-seasons coverage. Pair a printed midi with a solid-colored top or fitted graphic tee, then complete the look with a wear-everyday denim jacket, chunky sneakers, and delicate hoop earrings. Wear your jacket buttoned up on chilly mornings, or try tying it around your waist for a cool throwback style.
Double the Patterns, Double the Fun
Who says you can’t wear more than one pattern? When it comes to prints, you can never have too much of a good thing. Wear a striped Henley sweater with a plaid mini skirt, then finish the look with a ‘70s denim jacket , a sneaker made for your on-the-go day, and pearl hair clips that serve major elegance. This outfit is so on point for fall we can almost hear the leaves crunching under your feet.
