WHAT TO WEAR: Back to School

September 25th, 2015 at 2:07am

No matter which year you are, the first few weeks back are always the time to make a fashion statement. Students bring their best in that first crucial month, before resorting to sweatshirts and leggings for the rest of the year. Back to school is the time to show your exes that you’re back and better than ever, your friends that you have a whole new wardrobe and your school that you’re ready to make your mark. This can all be done through the clothes you wear and how you present your fall style.

This Fashionista’s outfit is the perfect example of a fabulous back to school look. With essential fall colors, from the army green jeans to the chambray top, plus the excessive layering—this Fashionista is ready to take on classes, meetings, mixers and so much more.

Starting with her messy bun and working our way down the look, this Fashionista keeps things simple with an effortless hairstyle and lets her outfit do all the talking. The embroidered chambray shirt is a great fall piece, especially for back to school, because it is different from your typical day-to-day denim top. The Western-esque detailing brings an eclectic feel to the neutral outfit and spices things up a bit with some difference in color and texture.

This Fashionista layers up with an oversized gray cardigan with a unique texture and pattern. She buttons the top button but allows the rest to hang open, as to show off the chambray and give the illusion of layers. The loose-fitting army green jeans are the perfect match to the neutral top half of the look, while also bringing in one of fall’s hottest colors. To top off the look, this Fashionista adds a camel-brown leather jacket and some gladiator sandals, in an effort to keep summer around just a little longer. The jacket adds yet another layer of fabulous while introducing another fall color into the palette and tying in the shoes.

Back to school is the best time to show off a new style, keep up the momentum and have fun with your looks!

One Simple Change: Switch out the cardigan to minimize the layers and put on a pair of dark skinny jeans for a perfect fall concert look. Add a pair of leather cowboy boots if you’re headed to one of your favorite country star’s shows!
