WHAT TO WEAR: Back To School

The summer is coming to an end and it’s back to school for many of us. While many students are shopping for school supplies, we Fashionistas are shopping for something else: new clothes. The first day of school is the perfect day to showcase your style. The start of a new semester signals the transition from summer to fall. New York City is the mecca of fashion and fall is the season when new trends and styles are showcased. More importantly, the weather is perfect and it’s not too hot or too cold. During this season, layering is essential and sweaters are a must-have.

This Fashionista’s style hit the target. The contrast between the dark cropped trousers and white sweater worked together to create a preppy look, while the oxfords conveyed a more masculine feel. The red and blue detailing along the edges of the sleeves added a bit of flare to the sweater and complemented the trousers. The backpack kept the ensemble casual and school appropriate. This Fashionista’s aviator-styled sunglasses completed the look and created a suave ensemble. With autumn right around the corner sweaters are perfect for the upcoming weather, and although this look screams “too cool for school”, it’s perfect for the first day of classes.

One Simple Change: The sweater is quite versatile. If you want a more feminine look, go for a pair of ballet flats. If you’re looking for a more sporty feeling, throw on a pair of black slip ons or Converse All-Stars. This sweater would also be perfect for a girl’s night out. Simply throw on a black, high-waisted midi skirt and black heeled sandals and you are ready for a night out.
