One of my favorite parts about going back to school – and the part I’ll be missing most – is shopping for great, versatile pieces to wear to school. You already know that I’ve been stalking my favorite stores for fun pieces. These are my Fall ’16 picks!
Graphic tees and tanks are a great way to show your personal style and are awesome to layer with all types of jackets and cardigans – a must when you never know if your classrooms are going to be freezing or sweltering!
Cardigans are always a good investment piece that can be layered for every season. Bonus – they can come in basic colors and traditional pieces (good for multi-use) and fun shapes and prints (great for freshening up your style).
You cannot go wrong grabbing new jeans. Just make sure to get some that work with all different types of shoes and weather so they’ll work all year! One of my favorite things to do is get two or three really versatile pairs, one super fun pair, and one ripped or cropped pair. Whatever style(s) you pick, make sure it fits you and your personality!
A few dresses never hurt either! The great thing about dresses are that they can be dressed up or down for class, study groups, or date nights. Pair them with tights, a denim jacket, or a cardigan to change it up.
Leggings are super popular these days, too. They work dressed up, dressed down, paired with tons of shirts, and even under shorter dresses. They are my go-to when the weather cools down – perfect to pair with a sweater and boots! In my opinion, the very best leggings ever are from Black Milk*. They are perfection, but a little pricy for leggings. However, they hold up super well and are the most amazing things ever with basic styles and ridiculously fun ones. They are opaque (except the ones that aren’t meant to be), thick, breathable . . . can you tell I love them?
*Black Milk also has amazing EVERYTHING. They have both Australian and U.S based websites and sometimes you can find different things on each site. I have a ton of their stuff and all of it is amazing quality.
