3 Back to School Looks for the New Term

The start of the school year marks the beginning of a new chapter in your life! Soon you’ll be rejoining your friends and meeting new ones. Are you already thinking of what to wear for the first week of school? Do you want to change sartorially, dress to impress or simply keep up to date? In any case, YesStyle is having its Back To School Sale right now, so grab the chance to update your wardrobe and stationery! To begin with, here are 3 failsafe styles to consider:

Urban Chic
This is the style I love the most. Emphasizing practicality and minimalism, the examples below are reduced to just a black, white and pink palette. You can try other colors, but please choose a maximum of three colors to make your style stand out. Since the athleisure trend is still a major focus this fall, I’ve included embroidered baseball caps, varsity jackets and backpacks alongside sophisticated stationery in this look. For tumblers, there is a huge variety to choose from. I particularly chose this Korean one since it’s made from lightweight BPA-free tritan plastic, and can withstand water from -20 to 110 degrees Celsius.

Autumn Cowgirl
With the arrival of fall comes autumnal colors: shades of orange, brown, olive and burgundy. Orangey suede and corduroy are a perfect match with denim. Wear an off-shoulder, tie-front pinstriped blouse and a suede buttoned skirt to set the basis of your OOTD, before topping it off with a denim jacket and patent tasseled loafers. Alternatively, wear a denim jumper dress over a white off-shoulder blouse and finish with a choker. For those who prefer pants, why not try patched jeans instead of ribbed ones? It will soon be getting cold so you may not want your legs to come in direct contact with metal seats.

Goth and Quirky
This style is for those who wish to look more grown-up without being too revealing. Everything on this list happens to be black, a foolproof color at all times and especially in the fall. I’m not suggesting that you wear black most of the time – after all, it’s a matter of personal preference. However, black does makes one look more sophisticated. Just make sure you break the monotony by combining it once in a while with white and gray, or gold and silver in the form of grommets, a choker or even accents on the heels. For the more daring, there’s also the trend of wearing a spaghetti strap dress or top over a white tee or blouse – a good way to extend the use of your summer dresses.
