Off-duty style is a genre usually best interpreted by those pretty faces walking the runway – but this fall, DKNY is taking a stab at it. With the help of fashion’s favorite It girl Cara Delevingne, the label has created a 15-piece capsule collection full of varsity and leather jackets, sporty separates, and loud tees. It’s set to launch this October.

Spawned from an exchange of jumpsuit-related ideas, the line also (not-so-surprisingly) includes both hooded and mesh-detailed jumpsuit styles. According to the brand, the laid-back collaboration is “equal parts Cara’s individual quirk and DKNY’s urban edge.”

Part of that quirk is Cara’s humorous touch on the tees, with statements like “If you can read this, you’re too close” paired with a cross-eyed peek at her forehead. That said, I think it’s worth getting up close and personal with this collection (especially its outerwear).

This week, we’re breaking down exactly which trends to wear on top this spring. Next Tuesday, we’ll tackle those bottoms.

1. The crop top is here to stay. So pull out your collection – or start building one immediately.

2. Don’t freak out. There’s no football experience required to sport these varsity jackets.

3. Give the necklace a break. Embellished collars are having a much-deserved moment.

4. Chambray all day, every day? We’re cool with that.

5. The trench is timeless and chic. So we’re buying one in every color.
