WHAT TO WEAR: Back to School

September 15th, 2015 at 2:00am

Summertime sadness has set in as we make our way onto another school year. No more lazy days on the beach or bike rides in the sweet summer breeze. The ending of something great always means better things are on the way, right? Back to school is a time to re-invent your look and rock the campus quad like the runway it really is. Searching for that killer first day of school ensemble can be a little daunting, but this Fashionista may just have a fresh new look on classroom attire.

Who can say no to a pair of good ole’ fashion cut-offs? These baggy, button-front Free People shorts are an easy way to look cute while beating the southern heat. This Fashionista threw on a plaid, loose fitting top to keep things casual and cool; as we know the walk to class can be a bit of a workout. For shoes she opted for a pair of strap leather booties that add a unique boho element. The heel is small and won’t hurt your feet while you walk around campus. Carrying your must-haves from building to building calls for an easy-to-carry bag, and what better pick than this ’70s-inspired leather fringe cross-body. A dainty gold and charcoal necklace finishes the look with an excellent mix of femininity and edge.

Back to school doesn’t mean back to the same old mundane routine. Leave those oversized T-shirts behind and be a trendsetter on your campus.

One Simple Change: If you’re looking for a little first week fun, throw on a pair of caged heels and ripped-knee skinnies to take this look from day to night.
