5 Foolproof Fall Outfits From The Great


Credited with bringing boyfriend jeans into being—a feat for which we are forever grateful—stylist-slash-designer duo Emily Current and Meritt Elliott are lately impacting our wardrobes with their new line, The Great. In its second season (and already a mainstay in the wardrobes of LA’s fashion set), the label stays true to the ladies’ Americana aesthetic while implementing a bit of boho whimsy for a fresh result. Flip through their fall lookbook and you’ll find unexpected closet essentials, including Victorian tops, tea-length skirts and, of course, plenty of novel denim. Here, Emily and Meritt share a few exclusive tips for how to wear their favorite pieces from the prairie-core collection.
