WHAT TO WEAR: Back To School

The start of a new school year is filled with so many exciting things. Preparing for a semester of new classes requires settling into a new dorm room, picking out notebooks and ordering your textbooks. With all of this, by the time classes begin, it can be a little stressful to find the perfect outfit. It is always hot and sticky in the beginning of the school year, but you still want to make a good first impression on your professors and classmates. This Fashionista shows us how to battle the heat while looking chic and sophisticated at the same time.

Because of the scorching temperatures, this Fashionista knew that she would not want to be weighed down accessorizing her outfit. Instead of wearing a ton of accessories she chose a pair of shorts in a bright color that made a statement all on their own. The red color and pleated cut is an exciting change from a typical pair of denim shorts. She paired her shorts with a plain white T-shirt with just a little detailing on the sleeves. The white color helps her to stay cool and keep her shorts casual enough for class. Finally, she finished her look with a pair of bronze sandals. The rich bronze is perfect for back to school because it can be worn in the summer as well as carried over into early fall.

One Simple Change: As the weather begins to get crisper swap the T-shirt out for a chunky sweater. The red shorts and bronze sandals will take on an autumnal look when paired with a heavier top.
