Tennis Skirt Crew
Relish the last warm days of the year by pairing your favorite sweater with a skirt. Here, we are styling a black Stussy crewneck sweatshirt — layered with a white button-up shirt underneath — with a trendy pleated tennis skirt from Lacoste. Statement eyewear and footwear, like Balenciaga’s rectangular sunglasses and these Dr. Martens flatform brogues, add interest to the look. Depending on the weather, you can wear the chunky shoes with some black tights or a pair of colorful socks.
Recreate Princess Diana’s iconic gym looks with a loose-fit sweater and ‘90s bike shorts — we love the pairing of this burgundy cotton-jersey sweatshirt by Acne Studios and silver cycling shorts from adidas Originals. A pair of thick ankle socks and retro dad sneakers such as PUMA’s Cell Endura complete the athleisure ‘fit. To accessorize, go for large hoop earrings like these heart-shaped ones by AMBUSH. Finally, a water bottle like this black one by Christopher Kane will help keep you hydrated and looking chic on your morning walks.
A vibrant, color-blocked outfit will certainly brighten up your day. Reach for a bold colored sweater and some comfy bottoms in a contrasting hue — Nike’s orange cropped terry crewneck and Girlfriend Collective’s purply blue leggings look perfect together. Don’t be afraid to throw on any equally bright accessories, like this lilac Fendi Baguette bag and these neon yellow runners from Balenciaga (these stylish wireless earbuds will match your shoes, too).
On those wet and windy days, wear your favorite crewneck sweatshirt with weatherproof outerwear and shoes. Peace & Quiet’s “Natural” gray sweatshirt looks great with a pair of straight leg jeans and black leather boots, like these laced-up ones by Proenza Schouler. A water-repllent trench coat like The Row’s beige, double-breasted style will help keep you dry from the rain. A small card holder like Loewe’s will fit perfectly in the pockets, so you can be hands-free.
Black and (Cream) White
A cream white sweatsuit is ideal for minimalists who like to keep their outfits effortless and simple. Raey’s ivory sweatshirt is designed with a slouchy fit and matches these drawstring track pants from Jil Sander. A pair of low-key sneakers, such as the New Balance 990V5, will tie the weekend-ready look together. Going into the winter season, you can layer a long wool coat on top — Stella McCartney makes a timelessly chic design. A leather handbag, like JW Anderson’s gold chain-embellished carryall, adds a luxe touch to the otherwise laid back look.
