WHAT TO WEAR: Back to School

September 18th, 2015 at 2:00am

It’s that time of year again when students begin flooding the red brick sidewalks of University of Delaware. As most of us know back to school season is a hectic, yet exciting time. New classes, new books and of course a new wardrobe. The changing of seasons opens up so many great outfit opportunities and a chance to sport this years trends. While the fall staples are starting to creep out, it’s not quite chilly enough to throw on the sweaters and beanies just yet.

However, boots—combat boots, at that—are pretty much amazing any time of year. It does take a brave soul to trot around in 90 degree weather all day in closed-toed shoes though. Props to you, girl! Talk about toasty with a side of chic. This Fashionista knows exactly what she’s doing. Her above-the-knee teal dress from Forever 21 is perfect for a breezy feel while strolling around campus all day. This back to school outfit is fun and fresh! Moving up from the toes to the head, she is rocking super stylish sunnies that fit in effortlessly with this Fashionista’s edgy look. Tilley’s eyewear collection can win anyone’s heart (or wallet) over. Just saying. Of course, the finishing touch to this ensemble was her classic, pink lipstick. There is something about an outfit that makes it complete with just the right shade for that pop of color.

One Simple Change: Let’s be honest, school starts in August; which is one of the hottest months of the year! But of course you would still love to sport this darling ensemble. How about we lighten it up a bit? I suggest ditching the boots and slipping into a pair of gladiator tie-up sandals. This would be an excellent alternative to stay cool while running a few errands until the frigid fall weather kicks into gear. Give it a shot!
