There’s something so comforting about classic fashion pairings, like sweaters and skirts, or a white tee and jeans (they serve as the backbone to any number of everyday uniforms, after all). But instead of relying on the standard fare for fall, drum up unpredictability with runway-inspired combos you wouldn’t think to try. Surprising, yes, but unwearable, they are not. From floral maxis and bustiers to tees and camis, read on to find out how to pull off seven unexpected pairings.
