If you are new to Social Threads, you’re in for a treat. Social Threads is an online boutique started by two moms, Sara & Maureen. Their goal was to come up with a highly edited list of fun, wearable pieces…all for under $100. It’s quickly become one of my favorite spots for grabbing something new and trendy. So when they reached out, asking if I wanted to collaborate on a Fall Edit…it was an easy answer. And then when Sara & Maureen stopped by the TME office with a whole big bunch of stuff that ended up being EXACTLY the pieces I had been searching the internets for…well.

I’m beyond thrilled with the results.

My absolute favs — the very stars of this collection — will be featured in a post coming out soon (tomorrow?). If waiting is absolutely not your thing, here’s the list: 1. this top, 2. a pair of light-wash, cropped flares (either this one or this one), and 3. one of two coats — this or this (or both – I can’t decide!!!). 

That said, the entire collection is really, really good. (Says, uh, me…since I picked it. haha)

And since we all love a one-piece-multiple ways situation…that’s what I did. Enjoy!

ps.  I’m wearing an XS in everything, unless marked.

1. Start With Some (Ever-So-Slightly) Destroyed Cropped Flares

The silhouette, rise and wash (light and not-too-crazy distressing) feels really current for Fall.

A. Free People Cropped Flares, 4 Ways

These Free People Cropped Flares could maaaaybe benefit from a 1-2″ hem on my 5’3″ self (I’m rounding up as we liars — I mean petites — tend to do). Size up one full size in these jeans — there is absolutely NO stretch. Which means that they are uncomfortable at first, but do soften and stretch to fit after a couple of days. I’m just wildly obsessed with the silhouette.

NOTE: The denim is very soft…just not stretchy.

Fav! A Closer Look: [BLANKNYC] Cord Moto Jacket 

This is one of my very favorite pieces in the entire collection. If you do nothing else, snag this jacket by [BLANKNYC]. I’ve been wearing the heck out of it.The textured fabric and color are such a good update for fall…and it looks especially good with black, too. I’m wearing an XS (my usual size).

Speaking of black…there’s a black layering turtleneck in this collab that’s totally worth snagging. It’ll help transition SO many summer tops & dresses into fall (and winter).

B. Just Black Cropped Flares, 3 Ways

Unlike the Free People flares, these Just Black cropped flares are immediately comfortable. They don’t quite have the dramatic shape of the Free People cropped flares (tiny waist + wide, swingy leg) — instead, the vibe is almost boyfriend jean — but I LOVE them. Fits true to size.

2. Everyone Needs Some Black-Washed Skinnies, 4 Ways

These Free People skinnies are an easy win. The wash is ever-so-slightly faded black, the rise is unapologetically high, and these are nice and stretchy. (I did hack a few inches off the hem.) Fits small (size up one size).

Fav! A Closer Look: This Faux-Leather Shirt

My leather moto jacket hasn’t been getting much wear lately, primarily because it feels like overkill for this too-hot-fall. This faux-leather shirt from BB Dakota is an easy swap. It can basically can be worn in place of a leather moto jacket…or even in place of a blazer. I’m obsessed. (And wearing a size XS.)

3. Dark Flares (or Maybe….Bootcut?)

Legs for days? I found two different options for your consideration….

A. Free People Pull-On Flares, 3 Ways

These Free People pull-on flares are as comfortable as leggings. And — happily for tall girls — they’re really long: I hacked almost 5″ off of the bottoms. Happily for short girls, the bell leg is really dramatic (it starts up pretty high), so hacking the bottoms off won’t destroy the silhouette.

Caveat: These leggings are a little closer to low-rise and they don’t have denim waist styling. So. If you’d like to tuck something in, you end up with a shirt-tucked-into-leggings look (see below photos).  Also, size up.  They run small.

Bottom Row: blouse | jeans 

Fav! A Closer Look: Free People Swingy Sweater

This swingy Free People sweater is one of those pieces that are SO easy to wear. Because of the jagged hem, it looks cute with any rise of jean…even high-rise mom jeans. This is going to get a ton of wear once the weather cools.

B. [BLANKNYC] High-Rise Bootcut Jeans, 3 Ways

These don’t have quite the dramatic silhouette of the Free People Pull-On flares…but these Blank NYC bootcut jeans are maybe the most leg-lengthening pair I’ve ever worn. Fit is TTS, and I folded under a good 4-5″ in the pics below (I’m debating between a cut hem and a real hem for these bad boys).

And before you ask: Is bootcut back? YUP. But only if it’s high-rise.

4. Two Cute Skirts

A. Leopard Midi Skirt

These silky midi skirts (in leopard) are some of the most versatile things in my closet. Wear ’em with heels, with sandals, with boots, with sneakers. And I love the updated colors in this particular skirt. It does fit tight in the waistband, however. Otherwise, TTS.

ps.  The mixed leopard print look is my fav. Love how it almost looks like a really cool dress.

Bottom Row: skirt | pullover | jacket | hat

B. Soft Cord Mini Skirt

This Z SUPPLY cord mini is an easy win. So good with sneakers now, and then tall boots (or OTK boots) later. The waistband is good enough to for a full or half-tuck of a top. Love the mod vibe. TTS.

5. Two Fall Dresses I Love

A. This Gorgeous Brown (Rust?) Midi Dress

OK, this BB Dakota Button-Up midi dress might actually be a maxi dress on me. Whatevs. It’s one of my very favorite pieces in the collection, and you’ll see many more pictures of it styled in an article coming out tomorrow. (If you want that sneak peek, Social Threads has a few of those photos up on their site….here). Runs small – size up one size.

B. Classic Turtleneck Sweater Dress

This Z SUPPLY turtleneck dress is short…but with a really flattering shape. Especially love it with boots.

6. Chic & Cozy Loungewear

Social Threads always has some seriously good loungewear…and this set by Z SUPPLY is easily my new fav.  The joggers have a really high foldover waistband (suuuper-flattering), and the sweatshirt is perfectly thin and drapey, with bell sleeves. The sweatshirt is actually one of my very favorite things in the collection (you can see it styled with almost everything, above).

7. Don’t Forget The Accessories….

A. This Cute Zebra Hat

I love a cute hat and this is one is really cute on. The black-and-tan feels especially chic.

B. Or This Colorful Set…

This exact same hat comes in a bright, playful stripe. This entire set reminds me a bit of an old Kate Spade hat-and-scarf set I had a few years ago…but at a fraction of the cost.  

NOTE: This knit feels like it *could* be scratchy…but actually isn’t.

C. A Faux-Fur Stole (To Make Everyday Jackets Fancy)

I’ve had this faux-fur stole for years. You might remember it styled with a blazer last holiday season. So glad Social Threads brought this piece back.

D. This Hat That Can Also Be A Scarf

This cute little pom-pom has a little trick up its, er, sleeve? Or funnel? In any case, pull out the insides, and you’re left with a chic little neckwarmer.

  1. Love this!! Ordered the leopard skirt and cami, black layering turtleneck, and the hunter green short sleeve baggy sweater. Excited to see in person! Great collab ❤️

  2. So fun! I love that white Free People sweater and the black turtleneck dress. And the Z Supply loungewear pieces. How cropped is the sweatshirt? I love it, but cropped tops are not really my thing! Love this collaboration! Can’t wait to start shopping!

  3. I loved the clothes and went to the Social Threads site… only to discover the clothes aren’t available in my size 14. Like the style, just wish it was more inclusive.

  4. Hello! I’m a faithful follower of your blog. I read it almost daily, and love your commitment to diversity on all fronts – size, race, age, price point. I know you love Social Threads, and I love you guys, so I *want* to love Social Threads, but here is my hang up: I’m trying to buy more sustainable fashion and, every time I follow one of your links to Social Threads, I notice that most of the items are not natural materials, extremely inexpensive, and do not include the location of where they are made (which makes me assume many are made overseas, raising carbon footprint and possibly treatment of workers issues). Do you consider clothes from Social Threads sustainable and, if so, why? I am truly asking, not trying to be antagonistic (in part because I want to feel guilt free about buying that green sweater!). Thank you! Samantha

    • Oh Geez – no. We don’t consider the lines that Social Threads carries to be sustainable. That said, the reason I love Social Threads is because, overall, the selection is REALLY well edited. The pieces I have from Social Threads I’ve been able to wear year after year. I think part of sustainability is just being really, REALLY picky when deciding what to buy (and keep). And their price point is important, especially for our budget-conscious readers. If you are able to spend a little more to buy sustainable products, than this article may not resonate with you. The one I published Sunday night, however (with my very favs from this collection) I did try to round up some sustainable products where I could. I feel that the tide is turning, however, and someday – hopefully SOON – all of these lines will be moving in a sustainable direction. Anyway, thanks for the feedback. Here’s Sunday’s article:

  5. Thank you – this is a fantastic response. I appreciate your thoughtfulness and agree on all counts – the tide is definitely turning, and an important part of sustainability is being super mindful about purchases (hence my careful parsing of the Shopbop sale right now 🙂 ). And yes – one of the things I love about your blog is your focus on inclusivity, so I appreciate that aspect of Social Threads as well. Thanks again, and thanks to Mom Edit for being such a part of my day. If you guys ever come to San Francisco, I’ve got you for restaurant and shopping recommendations! Sam
