|5 "Back-to-School" Outfits I'm Stealing From Cool Brit Girls on Instagram|
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 autumn is right here, thanks to our Insta-pals. Over the past few days a flurry of decidedly NOT heatwave-ready outfits have started to infiltrate our feeds from the UK girls we love best: gone are the asymmetric floaty dresses, the Santorini rooftops, the ice-creams. Now it's all rusty colours, cosy knits, close-toe shoes and box-fresh blazers. So, as your mind will undoubtedly be turning to all things A/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 28-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 onwards, and shop the key pieces to replicate them. Style Notes: Jessie's relaxed look feels so approachable and yet so ladylike with those little Manolo Blahnik mules and oversized clutch bag. Style Notes: Ada has the Topshop boilersuit we're all obsessing over—but we love how she's restyled it with a leopard top underneath and bright-white boots. V cool.Style Notes: Sophia knows it's not coat weather yet, but it IS cardigan weather and they're back in business this season. Love the hippy stripes of this one contrasted with a minimal outfit underneath.Style Notes: When in doubt throw on a leopard dress (or snake or croc or zebra, depending on your animal print leanings) and simply add sneaks. Thanks for the reminder, Alex.Style Notes: Could we be any more into this colour 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. Next, what shoes to wear with skinny jeans.
