July has come and gone faster than that popsicle you dropped on the pavement during your Fourth of July barbecue. All of a sudden, it’s August, which means fall classes are right around the corner. School bells are ringing like the ghosts of academia future, prompting us all to enjoy one last summer hurrah and, of course, signaling back to school shopping!
This back to school season, why not try a geometric print in your wardrobe? Shapes stolen from your geometry class have been popping up on everything from button-downs to shorts to blazers this season. The grid is in, showing that coordinate planes aren’t just for nerds, but can be tailored cool too. Stick with a basic black and white print for a sleek, professional look. On the flip side, try a print that’s a kaleidoscope of colors for a piece that will really make a statement. The combinations of prints and colors are endless, so you can really find one that fits exactly your style!
This Fashionisto shows that style is really all in the small details with his micro-geometric print button-down. The print adds some interest to an otherwise plain white shirt, but isn’t in your face distracting for a casual day of class.
For the Fashionista, try a white T-shirt with a grid print skirt for a simple stylish look. Add a chunky sandal for hiking all over campus to get to class and easily switch them out with a minimalistic heel to go out at night.
How To: Go ahead, dress like you’re being inspired by an actual day of class. Try a shirt reminiscent of graph paper to help you get through that math class. Also, choose a stylish watch as well to make sure you are on time.
