There’s nothing sweeter than an easy outfit formula that works every time, for everyone. That fail-safe combo for fall? A crewneck sweater with a midi skirt and slouchy boots.
The midi has proven its might over the past few seasons, coming in a range of silhouettes from A-line to body-skimming pencils as well as an array of fabrics, colors and prints. The length is flattering on literally all body types—yes, even petite frames—and the versatile shape makes it appropriate for just about any setting.
Then there’s the crewneck sweater (fitted or oversize)—a classic worth owning in every color. You truly can’t go wrong with this silhouette thanks to the neckline that’s at once smart and tasteful, no matter your age.
Next come the boots—this fall, slouchy styles are big, but really they’re textbook anytime, always lending a polished, well-dressed vibe.
This flawless combo is a great way to experiment with colors and prints you may not normally try. Since each piece is timeless on its own, you can color-block shades you hadn’t thought of pairing; pick out a speck of color from a print and highlight it with a complementary piece; go for texture with a tactile skirt in patent or wool. It’s fashion-forward without feeling overtly trendy.
Ahead, ten ways in which to master this uncomplicated outfit. From edgy to ultra-feminine, we guarantee a combo that’s perfect for you.
