The Case of the Perfect Fall Outfit

Yes, it’s still technically summer, but we’re already finding clues that point to autumn’s arrival. You might find yourself searching for the secret to the perfect fall wardrobe. Well, look no further! We’ve assigned our Closet Confidential collection to the case. Got your composition book? Good. Let’s take some notes…

Plaids Worth Peeping

This plaid a-line skirt is total perfection. Simply top with a cute tie-neck blouse and your favorite sweater. Finish the look with buckled pumps and perhaps some tights once the weather gets chilly. Now you’re set to stroll across campus or camp out in your favorite coffee shop.

    I love “The Great Cape Capper” outfit. I always have trouble coordinating outfits with socks. This is a great way to do it. Can you please do a post giving us tips on how to wear socks with outfits with skirt, skinny jeans, dress pants? Thank you!

      That’s a great idea! We’re planning on doing a tights/socks leg-layering post this October. Stay tuned! 😀
