Outfit of the Week: Courtside Cool


With the end of summer upon us, take a layering cue from Derek Lam's crew-neck top, the perfect piece to kick-start your transitional wear as you begin to plan a back-to-school wardrobe. Pair it with Givenchy's vermillion red Obsedia bag for contrast that brings occasion to J.Crew's denim shorts — notice how they're slightly longer, leaving more to the imagination than the ever-popular cutoff variety. Wear the look with a bit of blush for a flushed glow and solid wedge pumps, the better for maintaining height without losing leverage on city pavement.
