WHAT TO WEAR: Back To School

It’s that time of year again: the days of summer jobs, poolside afternoons and barbecue weather are winding down and school is fast approaching. While it may seem daunting to get back to days of studying and lectures, it can be exciting to embrace a shift in routine and your wardrobe. In preparation for your return to campus, some back to school shopping is definitely in order. Keep the summer vibe alive and well with warm weather looks that are easy to rock in class, like this Fashionista’s! Though she is perfectly clad for the hazy days of August, this look is a perfect mix between comfy and fun that will keep your summer spirits alive as you make your way through campus.

This Fashionista’s look is a perfect mixture of classic pieces and it is a perfect ensemble for a lunch date, drinks with friends or even the lecture hall. The crop top and high-waisted denim short combination is always perfect for summer, but it’s also a fun outfit for the first few weeks of school. While her outfit is very on trend, this classic styling mixes modern and retro flair. This Fashionista’s details, like her gray and rose-gold watch and kate spade purse, are both minimal and recall vintage styling in their designs—they are both amazingly adorable, too! The white Converse and oversized denim jacket are both ’50s-inspired and minimal as well, they are casual and edgy additions to the outfit. Pairing some fun basics and perfect details will make for a great outfit for the fading dog days of summer and they will transfer perfectly into your return for the semester!

One Simple Change: Since these pieces are all classic and effortless in every way, translate this look for the colder weather of the upcoming school year! Swap the shorts for some high-waisted trousers—don’t be afraid to even add some rips for an edgy twist.
