This weekend, Kate Mara ducked in and out of shops in New York wearing a Sea plaid tweed crop top over loose, broken-in jeans and stacked open-toe heels. The look evoked a back-to-school mood — like the cool girl hanging out by the lockers — and serves as good inspiration for the sometimes-hard-to-dress-for final month of summer. (It’s still hot, and yet white linen feels stale.)
Mara’s look offers a solution for transitioning your favorite denim into the fall — and it’s just the thing to throw on for errands or a casual date night. Click through our slideshow for ways to get the look.
