With autumn on the calendar, it only feels natural to start swapping the bold brights of summer for the subtly refined patterns of fall. Yet, as stylist Conni Jespersen shows us, this academic look need not have a boring vibe. We’re loving how she adds just a few pops of fun to this classic, prep-inspired shirt dress.
