We'll admit that we're the first to notice when a new trend crops up, but that has yet to diminish our love for — or dependence on — wardrobe staples like knee-high boots, cozy pullovers, and sleek trench coats. And, based on the results of our Nordstrom Rack Insta-Classics
contest, we'd say you're in the same boat.
We asked you guys to show us how you'll be remixing your timeless fall styles on Instagram with #RackStyleContest and #ContestEntry. Then, we picked our favorite look based on quality and uniqueness (@retroflame's vintage sweater and distressed jeans really brought the heat), plus eight wild cards we just downright loved.
The unexpected layering combos and fresh color pairings you sent our way got us more excited about an autumnal chill than we ever thought we could be. So, considering the brilliant outfit ideas we received from these submissions, big winnings were in order: a $1,000 shopping spree for our Insta-Classics champ to stock her fall wardrobe. Check out our winner and our other fave 'grammers ahead — their OOTDs provide yet another excuse for loving brisk fall weather.
