There’s something about this time of year that incurs a collegiate, back-to-school, varsity-inspired feel. I’m blaming it on the weather and football season. That said, the athleisure trend has been around for quite some time, but sometimes it can feel a bit too edgy/casual for my taste. I wanted to round up a few pieces that felt a bit more feminine ivy league, and a bit less downtown cool.
Wear these with your regular wardrobe – try cool pink high top sneakers with your jeans and tee, or a fun, tennis-inspired pleated skirt that feels at home in your work wardrobe (this one was gorgeous too, but just outside of that $100!). Add a scarf like this striped number to your fall looks to keep you cozy, and throw on a practical backpack (like this pink Baggu or this fun Tommy Hilfiger style) instead of carrying a purse.
