WHAT TO WEAR: Back To School

It’s the first day of classes and we all know that the most stressful part of the day won’t be the new material covered in class, but rather sifting through your closet trying to decide what to wear. After all, the only things covered on day one are the syllabus and classroom rules anyway. The first day is filled with many first impressions, so what you wear can say a lot about you as a student and colleague. What do you wear?

This Fashionista, Michelle, has the perfect casual and put together look to impress both her professors and peers on her first day back.Her black long sleeve crop top is edgy yet elegant. The addition of the tribal print scarf draws the attention upward to frame her face. The dark wash of the skinny high-waisted jeans in addition to the buckled, faux leather booties she is wearing helps to elongate her legs making them appear longer and leaner. Lastly, the addition of a gold chained purse helps to pull the outfit together, drawing from the gold on the shoes and the orange hues in the scarf.

Whether you’re eager and outgoing, sitting in the front row or the wall flower in the back, if you’re having a difficult time deciding what to wear on your first day back, just remember the basics. Start with simple pieces, like this Fashionista, and use accessories to dress it up and add your own personal flair.
