Monday Muse: The Great Goes Back To School For Fall 2017

The Great Fall 2017

If it’s been a while since you’ve gone back-to-school shopping, The Great’s latest offering will either bring you right back to those good ol’ days or get you booking an extra session with your therapist. However that nostalgia hits you, there’s no denying that the collection — designers Emily Current and Merritt Elliott jokingly said it was half “good student” and half for “the rebel” — will be a hit with the line’s celeb fans (Jessica Alba, Emma Roberts, etc.) and real-life women alike.

The brand’s longtime fans will recognize a few favorites coming back. Those include slouchy cargo pants a la Jennifer Aniston, of course, along with boyfriend-fit flannels and cozy oversized sweatshirts. But tossed in along with those are a few quirky-cool additions that are just odd enough to set them apart while still being completely wearable.

The awkward silhouettes include jeans that are roomy and cropped and shrunken jackets alongside longline overshirts. Both rebels and good students alike will gravitate towards the graphic T-shirts and the dresses (long and prim for the good girls and shrunken for those a little more rebellious). To amp up the school spirit, Current and Elliott added varsity jackets, argyle sweaters, and baseball T-shirts. All that was missing were a few pom-poms.

For anyone who has graduated from study hall, the Great’s growing up, too. While denim will always be the brand’s bread and butter, there are a few more dressed-up options, too. That includes an off-the-shoulder cocktail dress in an easy, breezy fabric and gingham separates that channels prep tradition without veering too sweet.
