Fashion Combos That’ll Make You Wish It Were Fall Year-Round
You can’t deny the magic of summer. Three glorious, carefree months spent in skirts and sandals. Is there anything better? Yes. The three equally superb months spent in skirts and sweaters. Or sweaters with just a blazer as your jacket. These combinations are perennial favorites—as timeless as jeans and a white tee, but as fleeting as apple-picking season (seriously, how does that last only three weeks?). In celebration of Ralph Lauren’s 50th Anniversary, we partnered with Ariana Lauren and Venessa Kaufman to highlight their favorite fall pairings. Hurry and take part while you still can.
Turtleneck Sweater + A-line Skirt
Ah, the beauty of bare legs in October. Teaming skirts with sweaters is a great way to snuggle up in something soft without having to fully commit to pants (just yet). Look for a skirt with a versatile pattern, preferably one that can be worn with tights once the temps really cool off. “Ralph Lauren is a brand I’ve loved for as long as I can remember. The pieces I’m wearing are classic staples I’ll be sporting all season for years to come,” says Ariana.

V-Neck Sweater + Tweed Mini
Or take a more classic route like Venessa and team your trusty cashmere V-neck with a structured mini. The juxtaposition of long sleeves and a short skirt feels seasonally appropriate, as does the houndstooth tweed fabric.

Turtleneck Sweater + Navy Blazer
Another fall-weather perk? Heading out sans bulky coat. In fact, this season is all about making your jacket part of your outfit. Take Venessa’s blazer, for example. “There’s something about Ralph Lauren designs that exude relaxed elegance. I feel strong and feminine when I throw on a blazer or curve-hugging sweater,” she says.
