Reel back to the nineties with this monochrome style: a collared linen blouse, black-and-white tartan skirt, and a hint of gold jewelry. Great for classy museum dates or even an evening park stroll— just don’t forget a beige trench coat.

CITY CASUAL

Casual yet classic, this look is fit for a brisk walk downtown to grab a newspaper or cup of coffee. Cooler tones and soft fabric, plus a hint of distress, can add a distinct fall texture to a minimalistic outfit.

RETRO COLORBLOCK

Colder months don’t always mean a bled out wardrobe. For a retro style, peruse your local thrift store for baggy jackets and colorblock sweaters— this vibrant look is great for CD shopping or a Friday evening kickback.

COZY FLARE

Balancing comfy and sleek, take this look to a fall picnic or morning study session at a cafe. High-waisted mom jeans are a staple for every season, and you can make them cozier with black pieces and a fleece-y tartan shawl.
