What makes this combo so perfect is that every single item is a staple piece, that can be worn over and over again, all year round. The white tank, for example, can be paired with jeans, shorts, skirts and even a blazer, leaving you always looking put together and effortlessly chic.

This is also why this 'Summer Uniform' is easily transformed into a fall fit, all you need to do is pair the outfit with one of Emma's favorite denim jackets—or on really chilly days, a puffer jacket.

Oversized jackets

To make your midi-skirt/tank top combo fall-ready, all you need to do is throw on an oversized coat. From what we can tell, Emma is a fan of the North Face puffers and as one of Levi's brand ambassadors, she loves an oversized trucker jacket—both of which will keep you nice and toasty.

LEVI Trucker Jacket

RRP: $98/ £120

Yay for oversized denim! When does a denim jacket not look good, especially when it's from Levi? The answer is never. 

If you really want to embody Emma's style ethos, you better stock up on some Levi denim. This oversized jacket, in particular, is perfect for pairing with trousers, matching denim jeans—for 90s fashion (opens in new tab)moment—and even skirts.


Tank tops

We think everyone needs to own at least three tank tops in white, grey and black because they’re so damn easy to style.  A tank top also gives 90s minimalist vibes which is also a major TikTok trend—so you’ll be doing it all!

Emma opts for a white tank top for her fit, but a black one is also a great option for an uber-sophisticated look. You can style a tank with a blazer for a date night look, or an overshirt for a shopping day, or on its own at the beach—the possibilities are endless. We also recommended adding some affordable gold jewelry, to elevate it even further.

Now, looking over the 'Summer Uniform' staples, you can repurpose both the jackets (weather dependent, of course) and loafers for Emma's everyday fall look, but instead, swap out the midi skirt for some denim or Emma's favorite Dickies trousers.
