It’s almost time for back to school, but before you start shopping you’ll need to do your research. Style.com is an excellent source for the complete runway shows of every major designer. The site is an encyclopedia of what’s on trend for the season. With several hundred designers to weed through, it can get overwhelming, so I’ll be posting my personal favorite collections for you! Draw inspiration from what you like below and scour thrift stores, consignment shops and low end fast fashion stops for a similar look that will be sure to earn you an A+
- Oversized Accessories. Don’t be afraid to make a statement. I love the silver plated necklaces and huge furry hat. For everyday, you may want to try something on a smaller scale.
- Sporty Chic. Take a look at the model’s feet. Notice that they’re not wearing heels? Designers these days are all about the sneakers. I’m super happy about this because it means I can walk around campus and not complain about my feet hurting. Mix posh items like a printed midi skirt or an easy dress with your kicks.
- A neutral colored backpack will go with any outfit. Keep that in mind when finding something to carry your books in.
- Why bring a pencil case to school when you could wear one? Wang does it again with his innovative, cool-girl designs.
- Add sky blue and you won’t feel so grey anymore. The color blocking and chevron blue sweaters are a great color palette for the fall. They’re subdued without being boring.
- I’ve never been a fan of over-the-knee-boots, but I love the way they look here.
- Again with the cool-girl vibe. I love how laid back these outfits are. The very last one would be perfect for any class.
- Sometimes you feel the need to make a statement. I’m not sure what makes more of a statement than neon green. Accents like that will for sure get you noticed on campus, for all the right reasons.
- Invest in a quality jacket if you haven’t already. You want one that can be used all year long. For example, a leather jacket like the one pictured. In the fall layer it over a dress, in the winter over a sweater or under your overcoat.
