WHAT TO WEAR: Boho Back To School Basics

You hear the alarm on your phone go off, signaling your sleepy self that it’s time to get up and go to class. Why is it that 8:00 A.M.s never seem as dreadful when you’re registering for classes? Your summer sleep schedule has not prepared you for this! It’s 7:30 A.M., you have a timed 10 minute walk across campus to get to class and you can either hit the snooze button for the third time or show up to your first class of the semester wearing something other than sweats. We all know this scenario a little too well, but for this Fashionista, the choice was easy.

She conquered transitional, late summer style for her first day of classes. This Fashionista incorporated some summer feels with boho accents like the cardigan’s fringe and her woven sandals. Her silver, statement coin necklace gave off some gypsy vibes and certainly stood out against her sun-kissed skin. Paired with dark wash jeans and an olive T-shirt, she could easily layer on a jacket and trade the sandals in for booties to take this outfit to cold weather ready.

The key to this Fashionista’s class look is in the beauty of basics. She let me in to one of her best-kept style secrets: “Old Navy. Almost this entire outfit is from Old Navy!” This Fashionista had the right idea when she shopped their back to school sales and stocked up on versatile T-shirts and affordable jeggings with enough stretch to sit through class in comfort. Like this Fashionista, you can make your basics boho with the addition of some texture by throwing on a knit sweater and statement jewelry. Boho not your thing? No worries, basic jeans and T-shirts can channel whatever trend you’re loving just by adding different accessories!

The use of basics allowed this Fashionista have the best of both worlds this morning: enough sleep and a great first impression for classes!
