Back To School Fashion, It’s Time To Gear Up!

Back to School Fashion 2014

As college students, gone are the days of getting away with wearing frayed cutoff jeans and skimpy spaghetti-strap tops at school (wait, was that just me?). If we had to guess, your professors wouldn’t be impressed by that Hollister Co. themed outfit choice and, truthfully, higher education equates to higher-end style (unless you’re a roll-out-of-bed type of person). And no, this doesn’t mean splurging on your wardrobe is a must, but taking pride in your appearance is the perfect way to kick off a new school year, filled with promise and new opportunities.

Rose Gold Watch | Stone Stud Earrings | Peach Agenda Notebook | Glass Bottle

From floral prints to pops of leopard print, let’s bring a bit of excitement to your classroom wardrobe. Shall we?

The girl who’s looking to make a larger impact this year, floral and patterned blazers may be your new best friend. Adding this layer can take even the simplest of outfits to the next level of on-trend fashion. Since a piece like a floral printed blazer makes such a solid statement, scale back your accessories and pair the jacket with neutral colors to balance the outfit.

For those who do prefer the most minimal morning routine, stick with an all-black ensemble featuring soft skinny jeans and a comfortable v-neck. Add a pair of cheetah d’orsay flats and a rose gold watch with a bit of sparkle and you’ll instantly be the most polished girl in class.

This fall, precariously dangling and long earrings aren’t necessary. Rather, all you’ll need is a pair of simple yet sweet stud earrings (think pearls or pink sparkle) to be your consistent accessory. I love the pair above for its touch of peach (an unexpected fall pastel color) and for its accentuated sparkle.

Now, what’s a girl without her carryall? Let’s be real, you’re in college now, so say ta-ta to that Jansport backpack and welcome in a new kind of book bag. The ever elegant shoulder tote is a must-have for computer lovers and bookworms. The mint bag above can carry all your school essentials while still making a serious style statement.

School accessories extend far before your chunky necklace and pave bracelets, instead you’ll want to be prepared with a glass reusable water bottle and well-organized agenda. Yet again, another opportunity to showcase your style by getting planners and bottles that reflect your personal taste.

Well, we can’t promise that you’ll be the best-dressed in your class, but we can promise you’ll be able to standout of the crowd with these eight essential pieces. Each of these pieces serve as a launching pad for immaculate outfits that show off both your professionalism and youthful side. Here’s to getting our fashion “homework” done ahead of time!
