It's officially "back-to-school" time, and we couldn't be happier about it. Swapping pencil cases and rubbers for cardigans and boots, the grown-up girl's guide to segueing into fall is right here, thanks to our Insta pals.
Over the past few days, a flurry of decidedly not–heat wave–ready outfits have started to infiltrate our feeds from the British girls we love best. Gone are the asymmetric floaty dresses, the Santorini rooftops, and the ice creams. Now it's all rusty colors, cozy knits, closed-toe shoes, and box-fresh blazers. So, as your mind will undoubtedly be turning to all things F/W 18, we thought it easiest to select a few of the best entry-point ensembles: the simple looks you can throw together and feel brand-new in, without lamenting the loss of 80-degree weather and those shorts you really enjoyed wearing this past summer.
Keep scrolling to see the "back-to-school" outfits we're stealing from tomorrow onward and shop the key pieces to replicate them.
Style Notes: Sophia Tassew knows it's not coat weather yet, but it is cardigan weather—and they're back in business this season. Love the '70s-colored stripes of this one contrasted with a minimal outfit underneath.
Style Notes: Could we be any more into this color palette, the double snakeskin, the blue leather jacket, or the chunky flats? Answer: no. Lucy Williams has kindly provided an entirely relaxed way to this season's '70s trend.
