Hey guys! I know that it is the middle of summer, and the last thing anyone wants to hear about, myself included, is going back to school. What a drag! The good news is that one of the best ways to get excited for back to school is to start off the new year with new things. Now I know that not everyone has parents willing to buy them an entirely new wardrobe just for the upcoming school year. I know my parents would agree with that. With that being said, I have rounded up some of my favorite pieces that range from all price ranges to give you guys lots of options. I also am going to make a few late summer/ early fall 2017 fashion trend predictions and we can see if any of them come true!
Oh and great news guys! I have recently signed up with Shop Style Collective to make shopping so much easier for you guys! I will link all of the wardrobe pieces down below through Shop Style, so you guys can easily get the clothes if you wish. I will also put a widget down below, as a another way that you guys can shop these pieces through Shop Style.
Without further ado, here is my back to school wardrobe essentials list!:
Denim Jacket: I wear my denim jacket all the time for school because it looks great with almost anything! Especially with a dress and some cute sneakers. Price: $29.90
Versatile Cardigan: I have so many cardigans in my closet because they are great for cold mornings, and then easy to throw in my backpack once it gets warmer in the afternoon. Plus if your school has a dress code where you can’t show your shoulders, like mine does, then having these stocked up in your closet is any easy way to avoid that! Price: $69.50
T-shirt Dress: T-shirt dresses are great for a couple reasons. One, its basically its own outfit because all you really need to do after you’ve put the dress on is pick out cute shoes. And two, because it once again follows dress code! They also come in so many variations that you are bound to find one that fits your style. Price: $34.90
Easy skirts: I personally love denim skirts right now and want a bunch of new ones for the school year. They come in so many colors and just remind me of what I used to wear when I was younger. To mix and match, they make some that are frayed at the bottom, some that have rips, and some that have buttons, like the one down below. Price: $17.90
Wrap Dress: Although I think that some wrap dresses can sometimes age people, I have recently found some super cute and fun ones that are perfect for school! Between polka dots and floral, with the tie at the waist, this flattering dress is sure to make getting ready for school in the morning, a breeze. Price: $49.00
Basic T-shirt: Now I know that owning a t-shirt is kind of a no brainer, but I couldn’t resist throwing in my all time favorite t-shirts from J.Crew. They are so soft and go great with all of the skirts that I have for school. I would definitely stock up on these! Price: $11.50
Simple Studs: I had to throw in these simple studs that go great with any outfit. I honestly never really think about changing my earrings during the school week so I like to stick with earrings that really go with everything. Price: $28.00
Keyring/ Wallet/ Lanyard: I can’t tell you how handy it is to have your car keys and wallet essentials all in one! Especially for school, I really need only a few things such as student ID, driver’s license, credit cards, cash, and some parking meter money. I can’t tell you how many times I would have forgotten my money or license if it wasn’t already attached to my car keys. Honestly, I probably only remembered because of the fact that I needed my car keys to get to school. Highly recommend getting one of these. Plus they are super cute! Price: (lanyard) $12.00 (ID case) $12.00
