The Secret to Early Fall Fashion


According to stylish stars like Emily Ratajkowski, Gigi Hadid, and Abbey Lee Kershaw, the key to mastering summer-to-fall fashion is a mid-length skirt. Take note.


Emily Ratajkowski incorporated the trend into her stylish world tour for “We Are Your Friends.” She paired a suede Brunello Cucinelli pencil skirt with an Atea Oceanie bodysuit and Sophia Webster sandals. All she needs is an oversized sweater for this to be a full-blown fall look.
