WHAT TO WEAR: Back to School

If you haven’t noticed all the crazy store sales and over-the-top, seemingly endless commercials, then you probably don’t know it’s back to school time. Goodbye Netflix and hello Chemistry 101. Still, back to school time isn’t all bad. In fact, it’s one of the best times of the year to show off your killer style! With fall right around the corner, there’s no better time to start adding elements of the upcoming season into your wardrobe.

Let’s take a look at this Fashionista. She’s managed to pull off two staple elements from fall and summer season to create a casual, school-appropriate, transitional look: sandals and sweaters. Granted, for those of you living further south seeing someone wear sandals all year-round might be nothing new, but that doesn’t make them any less versatile.

One of the coolest things about this look is that this Fashionista has introduced a stylish and practical element to her look with a sweater. We all know classrooms tend to get extremely cold, so what better way to combat those chills than with a trendy pullover? Think about it: If you stack up on them now, not only will you be ahead of the fashion curve, but you’ll already be prepared for winter once it’s here.

Lastly, if you don’t have a lot of things to lug around with you this semester (E-Books are mini miracles), switch things up by using a purse. Structured totes make great options for school wear because they offer all the style of a trendy bag with all the space of a laptop case. Not to mention tons of pockets for pens, highlighters and anything else your heart desires.

Overall, dress for success! This is going to be a RAD semester, so why not dress the part?

One Simple Change: Want to take this look from day to night in a snap? Just throw on some killer heels for a cooler, edgier look. Don’t forget to add a smokey eye to you makeup ensemble for an awesome dramatic flair.
