Whether or not you went “back to school” this fall, preppy fall fashion with a hint of “off to hit the books” appeal will always hold a place in this industry’s hearts. Maybe it’s an easy way to relive the scholastic days without actually having to deal with the stress of pop quizzes and report cards, or maybe looking smart just never gets old. Either way, the Mango Pre-Fall 2011 lookbook leaves models Kasia Struss & Emma Xie all set to step on campus with medium-wash cropped jean trousers, cable knit, plaids, khakis, and noninvasive floral prints. We love the ruffle-sleeve denim one peice and cuffed shorts. These are easy answers to the classic question: What do I wear today so that cute guy in lecture will look at me?

Even though our favorite season is coming to a close, there’s comfort in the rampant summer sales on last month’s must-haves. Today’s find? An adorable ‘Winnie’ romper by Motel from Nasty Gal—formerly $78, now $54.60. We can’t read the name without imagining Winnie from The Wonder Years sporting it with her cute blunt-cut bangs (we have to imagine this was taken into consideration with the model’s ‘do as well). Pair this denim one-piece with platforms and a pair of vintage frames or wear it with tights this fall for a look that draws on childhood innocence and urban appeal alike!

By now we’ve made it quite clear that we’re into anything that screams rock ‘n roll. And who better to be the face of always rock inspired lable Eleven Paris than Zo? Kravits—afterall the rock vibe does run in her blood. In this third installment of their Life Is A Joke campaign, photographed by Sune Czajkowski, Kravits rocks out and chills out in an ultra 80s acid wash denim romper and frayed-at-the-sleeves denim vest. We love how this daughter of rock pulls off both the all American girl and super-punk rocker chick look perfectly.
