Whether the phrase Back to School makes your heart sing with joy or strikes fear in your heart, fall is a season of change. The leaves slowly start to turn, the wind starts to blow, and crisp mornings greet us as we start our daily routine.
But just because the seasons change, doesn’t mean that your entire wardrobe has to. Keep these style secrets in mind as you build your back to school style and keep your outfits as sharp as your mind.
To dress up your school style, swap a sporty backpack for a stylish tote. Look for a book bag that has thick straps, is made out of a durable material, and has a patterned liner to hide any surprise pen explosions or highlighter mishaps.
2. Layer It On Me
Stop! Don’t pack away your maxi dresses and skirts just yet. Wear these summer essentials well into fall by adding additional layers such as jean jackets, light scarves, cozy sweaters, and easy cardigans.
3. Back to Basics
Short on time? Rely on your beauty basics to help you when you’ve overslept, are running late for class, or lost track of time during a last minute study session. To save face, skip out on your full beauty routine and keep it simple with a layer of lipstick and a few coats of your favourite mascara.
4. Walking on a Cloud
The first few weeks of school can be hectic, so ensure you’ve got a comfortable pair of shoes to help you find your classes and explore your campus.
5. Make a Statement
Invest in a few statement necklaces to dress up any outfit in a pinch.
6. Wrap Me Up
For those days that start warm and end cool, bring a light scarf to help you deal with unpredictable temperatures.
7. The Skinny
Effortlessly transition from summer to fall with the help of a classic pair of skinny jeans. On warmer days, wear them with flats; as the temperatures drop, tuck them into a sleek pair of fall boots.
8. Get a Leg Up
A good pair of warm tights can completely change the look of any back to school outfit. Experiment with printed, wool, striped, sheer, coloured, and opaque tights to keep warm and look stylish.
9. Jean Machine
Like a good pair of blue jeans, a jean jacket is a wardrobe staple. For extra style points, add additional back to school accents like a light scarf, a statement necklace, or a comfortable pair of shoes.
10. Wide Awake
Back to school often means late nights and early mornings. To hide the side effects of working hard and playing hard, stock up on an under eye concealer that camouflages dark circles, shadows, and tired eyes.
