They say to leave the best for last, and if Paris Fashion Week is any indication, the adage is correct.

Chanel, Valentino, and Stella McCartney were among the many fashion houses displaying their Fall/Winter 2013 collections throughout the week, and we happened to notice that the overall feel of some of our favorite shows was decidedly autumnal and collegiate.

The models at Valentino wore schoolgirls ensembles, complete with lace collars and short hemlines. We also saw some of our favorite fall patterns, including plaid and pinstripes. Our suggestion for outfitting your wardrobe this fall? Think schoolgirl and you won't go wrong. In the meantime, click through the gallery to see our favorite looks from the shows, and get some inspiration for your looks this fall.
