WHAT TO WEAR: Back to School

How is it already the middle of August?! I cannot believe how the summer has flown by, but you know what they say: time flies when you’re having fun (and being fashionable). Everyone is making the most of the last of the warmth here in Milwaukee because we never really know when it will come to an end. While we don’t want to deter our minds from cut-offs and flip flops, it is that time to start thinking about the school year. With a new school year comes a new wardrobe, or at least that is what I tell myself to ease the pain of thinking about 8:00 a.m. labs, exams and what not.

This Fashionisto sports the perfect back to school outfit; he effortlessly combines comfort and style, which is key to looking and feeling great when you get back to campus. He wears a cool, fitted pair of khakis that are comfortable enough to walk around in and are a nice step up from sweatpants. He pairs this with a stylish adidas T-shirt that complements his blue, patterned snapback. On his feet, this Fashionisto opted for a basic pair of white sneakers. These are as practical as they are fashionable; he can walk, board or bike around campus comfortably.

As you go out shopping for the upcoming school year, follow this Fashionisto’s example. The perfect combination of style and comfort is key. Finally, remember that when you look good you feel good, so invest in pieces that will make you feel like a million bucks to take on the 8:00 a.m. labs, exams and whatever this school year will throw at you.

One Simple Change: This outfit can easily be transformed for a night out after a long day of classes. Swap the T-shirt for a button-down and trade the hat for some hair gel, and you are set to go!
