A new school year means new looks and whether you’re a student or not, everyone can benefit from a bit of freshman fashion. The Fall/Winter fashion season welcomes preppy style, the return of layering, and a new color pallet into your wardrobe. One of the hottest releases for FW is Lacoste‘s Nouvelle Collection, which brings slimmer cuts and contemporary colors to provide a fresh spin on vintage style. Classics like the polo, crewneck sweaters, and zip jackets are remixed with large logos and bright colors for some 90’s nostalgia. The vision is a retro aesthetic with a modern twist, and they’ve come up aces. To spice things up, select locations even have a customization bar for monogramming to add a personal touch to your piece. With so many to choose from, we have hand-selected our favorites from the ensemble for you to freshen up your look. Class is in session.
Bring back varsity cool with this wicked tartan check bomber when the weather drops. The wool-composed jacket comes with a woven check jacquard detailing on the front with beige sleeves and navy bomber collar. Perfect for morning class or a night out, pair this intricate outerwear with white tee (link other white tee article) and a pair of dark jeans.
This sleek canvas colorblock jacket honors Lacoste’s sporting origins with some serious tennis vibes. The full zip jacket features a navy body and chili red on the collar and shoulders. To pile on the old-school look, a stand-up collar with drawstrings for some 80’s swagger. This piece is literally good enough for the runway (it was featured in this season’s fashion show) but afternoon Spanish class will do.
Everyone needs a cool graphic sweater in their arsenal, so Lacoste obliged with this retro crewneck with some serious 90’s influence. This wardrobe essential is made with plush pima cotton, balancing comfort with cool and is a perfect pick for lounging with friends or a work session. “Lacoste” is printed in a 3D graphic on the chest with a quirky comic font composed of forest green, mustard yellow, navy and white for an eye-catching logo.
Of course we need to highlight the famous Lacoste polo. As the original tennis shirt, it has undergone countless redesigns, including this modern take on the classic polo. The navy shirt is detailed with a white minimalist piqué print and features a solid color collar and ribbed cuffs. Finish off the chic look with beige chinos and loafers for the perfect Saturday night outfit.
You can never go wrong with a pair of slim chinos, and these ones are as versatile as they are stylish. These navy blue pants provide a dressy feel with lounge comfort, composed of tough yet stretchy cotton twill and finished with zip pockets for a trim finish. They’re also guaranteed to fit well with an elasticized waistband and an inner drawstring for a customized fit.
Channel your inner professor with this cotton turtleneck that’s tailor-made for the FW season. The flour white color makes it easy to match with any other clothing, and the material is so soft it melts onto your skin. Ribbed cuffs keep everything nice and tidy, and the neck height sits just right so it’s not intrusive to the neckline. Timeless and classy, Lacoste even embroidered the crocodile logo on the neck for the stamp of approval.
