Everyone's talking about the Balenciaga collection, and I do really like the stripy blazers teamed with the ethnic scarves. The blazer seems to be one of the big pieces of the season, which starts a 'college girl' revival. Slouchy blazers, teamed with a shirt and jodhpurs featured in the Balenciaga collection but others such as Lacoste, DKNY and Luella provided their own twist on the trend. Rugby stripes were also in the mix at Lacoste, completing the preppy theme.
Key accessories include berets, scarves in college stripes, ribbed tights and stripy belts. With back-to-school season coming up, this is a great trend to try this autumn.
- Oh, and this summer I've been watching The OC boxset religiously. This trend reminded me of an episode in Season 2 where Marissa was supporting the college-girl look. The beret even had a cutesy green bow at the back.
