WHAT TO WEAR: Back to School

WHAT TO WEAR: Back to School

A new semester, a new you and a new wardrobe! For the first few weeks back on campus everyone dresses to impress, but make sure not to over do it. The new semester is the best way to show off the latest summer trends in a casual way.

Open shoulders are the hottest thing is summer. The cold shoulder look was seen all over spring 2016 runway shows, from off-the shoulder tops to shoulder cutouts to asymmetrical necklines. A cotton blend dress with open shoulders is the perfect way to show off the trend in a tasteful and appropriate way. A cool cotton dress, like this Fashionista is wearing is ideal for warm classrooms, and humid dorm rooms.

To accessorize, this Fashionista has done it very minimally where she paired the dress with a simple gold bar necklace. This Fashionista is wearing a jewelry brand called Dogeared, which is fairly popular and found in many department stores including Bloomingdale’s. This Fashionista choose to pair her dress with a great pair of super comfortable sandals. These sandals are great for class because of their extremely comfortable cushion soles. She also paired it with a great tiny cross body bag from Rebecca Minkoff.

One Simple Change: You can transform from this perfect back to school look to something to wear for girls night by ditching the sandals and pairing with rockin’ heels and killer jewelry. Open shoulders are great to transition from a casual day outfit to dressy night wear. For a night out, finding a cold shoulder top with an eye-catching detail, like cascading ruffles or a dramatic shape will be the ultimate trendy outfit.
