4 Looks For You & The Crew
Written by Lucy Felton
These hot jersey-fueled style ideas are about to become the most-hyped looks on your feed. Lucy Felton, fashion journalist and The Lucy Edit blogger, runs you through the options.
Got fall fashion info overload? It’s worth remembering that IRL, no one actually splashes cash on building their wardrobes from scratch. Fact: the smartest style winners hunt down the FW17 quick fixes instead. The wardrobe upgrades that have the minimum impact on the wallet – and the max impression on the street. Sometimes the simplest pieces anchor a look. Focus on getting the jersey foundations right and the rest will follow.
Clean, crisp, bold, cuffed on the sleeve, neat on the chest and a preppy button-down collar: the clout of the jersey polo needs no explanation. Take it up a notch into sharp mod-England terrain with suspenders, cuffed ankle pants and your team’s scarf: suddenly a firm fave feels anything but old news. Strong. Fashion. Game.
The Sports Fan
Does it look like a flashy 90's bootleg piece? Then you've nailed it. We’re talking designer Italian- feeling pattern, fresh color combos, bold logos – you get where this is going. Step forward, hero side-stripe sweatshirt, in iconic green, white and red. Timeless, standout and every inch the fall pro. Acid wash denim and your dressiest sneaks will make this revival piece soar.
The Street King
Go-to joggers get a motocross makeover with paneling and well-placed pockets, while the latest hoodie comes in an anything-but-average print. A tracksuit with lounge vibes that you can wear on the street? #Win. Get dressy-casj feels by throwing on a pair of rubber-block laceups – zero in on ones with a lug sole and you’re good to go.
A (Budget) Idol
It all starts with the perfect white tee. Once you have that right, you can move on to the star of the show. An army shirt's a good pick: it brings all the urban cred, with vintage-shop character. And a brand new white tee will also revive your rockin' leather jacket after its summer festival beating. Mud, beer, stuck-on backstage passes … Nothin' a crisp white tee can’t fix.
