your BACK TO SCHOOL MUST-HAVES
1. DENIM & PLAID: a winning combo
No back to school wardrobe is complete without the match made in heaven: denim and plaid, but this year brings a fresh way to feature these school trends. Denim on denim is still a hot look that allows you to pair your beloved skinny jeans with a cool jean shirt or jacket, but the real college craze for 2018 is plaid. Classic plaid shirts are updated with detailing, pants are parading in checks and even dresses are feeling the tartan kick. Wear one or pair them together and your cute back to school outfit is made.

2. perfect PANTS
Always start with the basics and work from the bottom up, because without perfect pants, nothing else matters. Make sure your collection of leggings is updated with bold colors and prints, but also keep your go-to joggers on hand for those late nights of studying. A pair of skinnies is a great way to downsize the legging population, but don't overlook paperbag pants and wide legs which are making hot comebacks. Finally, don't shy away from fresh, fun prints because your legs like to make statements too!
3. breezy BLOUSES
Now comes the hard part: picking the cute blouses and trendy tops that will drive your look from sloppy student to college chic. The key is to be fearless and choose the print, texture or combination thereof that speaks to you. Bold colors, twin prints and pretty florals lead the way, and with a handful of off shoulder designs, statement sleeves and maybe even a dramatic, high low hem or two, your cute, school outfits will be the stuff assemblies are made of.
4. stylish BLAZERS
You don't need to be a business major or a preppy girl to rock a blazer at school these days, especially with the diversity of tailored, oversized and printed styles. A sleek blazer with a pencil skirt is ideal for a job interview or internship, but a floral or plaid blazer with your skinnies creates a smart and sexy new you. It may have ruffled sleeves, a sash or cascades of chiffon, but however you style your new blazer, it has college chic written all over it.
5. dress to IMPRESS
A college wardrobe should follow the 3 C's: cute, comfortable and clean, so it's up to you to maintain your laundry schedule, but we can help you dress to impress. Rompers and maxis are perfect for the sunny start of semester, casual off-shoulder and skater styles are ideal for class and great with jean jackets, but also keep a cute mini or sexy bodycon on hand for your extra-curricular activities. From your internship to drinks with friends, the right dress makes creating outfits a breeze.
