With many of my fellow Style Gurus already back in school for the start of fall semester, my fashion life and personal life have been overcome with thoughts of school and my impending fall quarter. While I am enjoying the beautiful weather in the state I hale from (California) I must say that the Fashionista in me is extremely excited to head back to Seattle for the transition from summer to fall. Dark jewel tones and chunky sweaters will be likely pieces in my everyday wardrobe.
This Fashionista’s classic style caught my eye. It's a perfect look for back to school and the hard transition from summer to fall. This Fashionista’s clean white blouse paired with the always classic pleated circle skirt creates a flattering look for any body shape and any campus. The great part about this outfit and style is that it is easily accomplished, pulling inspiration from classic shapes and styles with a good dash of preppy. This Fashionista mixed her bohemian style accessories (note the belt and great sandals) with the classic staples of a nice white button-down tank and a great printed skirt.
This outfit is so put together and polished! It is a great ensemble for any Fashionista to replicate for her first day back to school. The options to personalize this style are endless. For colder weather campuses, a great sweater and knee high socks would be great paired with short booties. Grab a shoulder bag like the one this Fashionista is rocking or this one from Urban Outfitters. For warmer weather campuses, play with patterns and use a bold bandeau under your tank paired with classic sandals or flats for a more preppy feel. Lather on the sunscreen and you are set for class.
With this Fashionista’s look in mind, keep an eye out for some great back to school pieces. A great retro skirt like this one from Forever 21 is great piece to have in your closet. You can dress it up for a night out or dress it down for class. A classic tank is always an essential in any Fashionista’s wardrobe, since you can wear it with jeans or a skirt like the look seen on this Fashionista. Other essentials for fall include embracing and incorporating jewel tones as basics in an outfit or fun accessories, as well as setting your sights on a great back-to-school bag (whether it’s a large tote or a stylish backpack).
School is all about furthering your education — learn what styles you like and what you want to experiment with this year.
