We had an unexpected and welcome chill in the air early this September. It instantly put a pep in my step. There is a very slim window for enjoying this picture-perfect weather here in Minnesota, and one of the highlights for me is getting to wear my favorite fall outfit combo: sweaters with skirts. I’ve had my eye on some of these iconic Sézane pieces for a while. Others are brand new to the fall collection and sure to go fast.
As always, I put together my honest thoughts on each piece and provided fit notes. Enjoy!
I am a sucker for a Peter Pan collar, especially with contrast piping. I’ll be wearing this outfit often!
Fit Notes: The Frances jumper runs a little big but I think it looks great when the fit is a bit slouchy. The Bettie skirt fits true to size—I’m wearing my usual size and still have room for tucking in sweaters. The André loafers run big—I took my usual size 7 (38 in French sizing) and am swimming in these.
I love a set! This jacket and skirt combo is a dream. The plaid reads both preppy and tomboy. The pieces look great together and also work well on their own when paired with basics. They give a stylish update to any go-to look.
Fit Notes: The Will jacket and Tania skirt fit true to size. The Charly jumper runs a tad small—consider ordering up a size. The André loafers run big (see note under outfit one above).
This is the Bettie skirt I’ve been coveting! Once I got my hands on it I realized how many outfit ideas it unlocked. That’s how you know it’s a piece well worth adding to your wardrobe. I paired it with this fabulous jumper, sheer socks, and my new favorite slingbacks.
Fit Notes: The Bettie skirt and Paula Babies shoes fit true to size. The Emile cardigan is quite oversized! Consider ordering one size down.
This outfit does not feature a skirt but I love the look of gray on navy on black. I’m breaking all the rules here but it works. I have been living in the Madeline cardigan! I love how the cotton knit hangs. If there is one thing to buy from this month’s roundup, it’s this cardigan. The Romie Bag is perfect. I love the closure on it so much—it’s essentially a leather loop that automatically closes the bag whenever your arm is slung through it. It’s a genius bucket bag design.
Fit Notes: The Brut Sexy jeans run small—go up one or two sizes! The Madeline cardigan fits a little big. The André loafers run big (see note under outfit one above).
