Back to School

The first couple of weeks back in school can be exciting. New classes, new people, and a chance to break out so super stylish outfits for the new year. I notice that people try to whip out their best clothes for the new year, whether it’s putting together new outfits or recycling items in your closet for a fresh look. The beginning of a new school year is the perfect time to test the latest trends along, but also to take some fashion risks. I’ve got some ideas on how you can be one of the best dressed people in your class.

1. GRAPHIC TEES & SWEATERS: A graphic piece like a t-shirt or sweater says “Hey there! I’m tons of fun!” An oversized one, depending on where you live, paired with dark wash denim and a cute pair of flats is stylish but functional.

You're sure to get compliments in a graphic shirt like this because who doesn't lone unicorns?!?!?

2. THE LBD: Personally I think everyone should have a little black dress. It’s a wardrobe staple and will never ever ever go out of style. The thing I love about college is that there really isn’t a specific dress code so if you’re feeling edgy go for a bodycon LBD or one with cutouts. If classy is more your style try one with a scoop neck.

Because of the somewhat revealing cutouts the neckline is kept relatively high. Balance is key!

3. BLAZER: Blazers are another item you should keep handy. You can literally throw them over anything and everything.

They go with everything and look good on everyone. Why would you not have one?

4. POP OF COLOR: Adding color to an outfit is a great way to make modern and fun. If you’re wearing all black try blue, mustard, or magenta shoes. A bright purse can work too.

5.ACCESORIZE: Rings, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, anklets, beanies! Adding accessories to a look can pull it together in a jiffy.

I love hats and beanies. Especially printed ones or ones with phrases on them/

Try accessories you wouldn't normally wear, like these or something similar.
