To spice up your Instagram feed this fall, VALLEY has put together your go-to guide to piecing this look together among a variety of different shoppers.
1. For The Amazon Shoppers: Ballin’ On A Budget

With this skirt and collared blouse, add your favorite college sweatshirt and you have a trendy and cute outfit in under $30.
2. For The Thrift Shoppers: Try To Find This Prized Skirt
The NikeCourt Victory Skirt has caught the eye of thrifters everywhere, with the skirt being considered an exclusive find on websites like Poshmark, Mercari and more. Currently, the skirt is sold out on the Nike website but can be found on the DePop website for pretty outrageous prices. However, the skirt has been rumored to be found in thrift stores across America. Do your thing, thrifters!
3. For The Statement Shoppers: Consider PrettyLittleThing
PrettyLittleThing is known for their eccentric, yet colorful clothes that all college students seem to love.

Pair this with your favorite white or black crewneck and you will literally slay the look.
4. For The Matching Set Lovers (Quarantine Flashbacks, Anyone?)
As we all know, matching sets were the winning trend during our coronavirus quarantine. Bleach dye and tie-dye sweatsuits still remain a very popular trend today, with these cute matching tops and bottoms being totally in. MissGuided, a fashion company, has released a pleated mini skirt and top set. Talk about the best of both worlds!
5. For The Plaid Lovers: Fall Is Your Time To Shine!
Fall is undoubtedly the best time to wear plaid. Plaid flannels, shirts, and skirts ultimately take over the fashion industry at this time — and VALLEY supports it. So, why not add a little spice to the traditional mini skirt this fall by buying a plaid one? It’s the perfect way to dress up an outfit and looks great for Instagram photos. Pair it with your favorite black, white or even grey sweater to make the look even cozier.
