WHAT TO WEAR: Back to School

The beginning of the school year brings a lot of stress whether its classes, professors or your workload. We’re here to make sure that your first day of school outfit isn’t one of those stressors–you have enough on your plate.

Your first back to school outfit is all about looking effortlessly cute, like you woke up, nonchalantly threw on this amazing outfit in three minutes and ran out the door…even if it actually took you way longer. This Fashionista wore a flowy printed sundress. She balanced out the feminine frock with some edgier pieces. She added ankle motorcycle booties, blue reflective aviators and a slouchy embellished leather backpack. Her backpack is the perfect size to carry her books and laptop to and from class. It’s sophisticated look can make any outfit instantly look more put together and goes perfectly with any color or pattern. The loose nature of the dress and the flat booties provide a comfort factor that is great for walking around campus and sitting in class all day. A summery dress coupled with dark, tougher accessories is perfect for the ambiguity of September weather. It’s the ideal not quite summer, not quite fall outfit.

One Simple Change: If you want to go out later with friends you can make a few simple changes to tweak your outfit for nighttime. Add a structured jacket on top of your dress to cover up for the inevitable breeze. A leather jacket will help you stay warm and provide you with that edge you had in the daytime. Then just swap the backpack for a cross-body and you’re in business! If you want to go one step further you can always change from your flat moto booties to heeled moto booties. Same look with a little more sass.
