Fashion Formula : Fall Weekend Casual

It’s been a while since we’ve done a fashion formula here, especially one about casual fashion, so shall we? Here goes…

As a reminder, fashion formulas are those equations we can lean upon for dependable outfits. The formulas are easy to replicate. They come in handy when you’re out of ideas for what to wear. Sometimes, there really is no need to overthink things. Just rely on good basic formulas.

For fall, I find myself craving an easy relaxed vibe for the weekend. I first wore this look in NYC when I was there for fashion week. On Sunday morning, we had no official fashion week plans, so a few of us headed out to Brooklyn for some photos and fun. After days in dresses and high heels, I was ready for jeans and sneakers. Since then, I’ve worn several variations of this look. So, I thought I’d share the formula with you!

Fall Weekend Casual = Military Jacket + Striped Tee + Skinny Jeans + Sneakers

    Ha! I literally wore this exact “formula” yesterday. Military jacket, Breton tee, jeans, and the awesome fall-toned Nike Internationalists you linked a while back.
