I've been requested to do a back to school video for youtube, but as I'm not going to school myself anymore, it would be really weird to go buy lots of stuff that I'm actually not gonna use for school (even though I'd love to do the shopping for clothes anyway). But I figured I could just make a post about it here instead, so I put together some pieces on Polyvore - I've got a link to my polyvore on the right side of the blog btw - and I'm just gonna write about it instead :)
So the first things I would go for, would be jackets. Especially if you live a place that is not warm all year around! My faves are a great leather jacket than you can wear all year round, a cowboy jacket and a quilted bomber jacket! It can of course be any kind of jacket you want, but those I just my favorites for a bit warmer weather and not winter.
Dungarees/Other "statement pieces"
The second thing is something that is a bit more special, and not just your ordinary jeans or skirts. For this I've picked dungarees, as they are absolutely amazing, and can also be worn with thighs when it's beginning to get colder! It could also be something like kimonos (which I also LOOOVE!) or dip hem/high low/whatever you wanna call them skirts(Loooove).
The most important thing is probably as great pair of jeans! I would recommend Topshop, Asos, Urban Outfitters, American Eagle or any kind of brand like that for finding a great pair of jeans. I've also heard from my sister that Dr Denim makes some great pair of jeans, which I am definitely going to try out as I am looking for new jeans as well.
Another important thing is the top. I personally wear a lot of shirts at school, but also love t-shirts. Normally I go for very neutral t-shirts, as they can go with almost everything! But tank tops or t-shirts with cool print is also a must-have, if I may say so! :)
As for shoes I recommend buy a pair of sneakers at first, and when it gets colder a pair of really cool boots! I love boots, and I wish I could wear them all year 'round without it getting to hot around my feet! I would recommend a pair of vans or converse because I think those are the best sneakers ever! (Btw you can get the coolest vans ever with cats on! or my favorites with cool flower print on)
I think that if you wanna make your style more personal, a great thing is to have some good statement jewellery's or just small cute ones. You can find lots of different ones everywhere, but try Etsy.com if you want some more personalised pieces. :)
For school you want something to carry your books and stuff in, so invest in a good quality backpack as it's the best bag for school. If you've got a shoulder bag it's gonna be really heavy on your shoulder after a while (Talking form experience hehe) I would personally pick a neutral bag and not anything totally crazy coloured, because the neutral ones would go with every outfit you pick everyday!
You're probably gonna have your phone on you all the time, so why not have the coolest cover? :D You can buy so many cool covers online, or even make your own as I have. We all know how important your phone is, so it should look cool too! This also counts for your laptop if you have on! :)
I hope this helped any of you! If you have any further questions just leave them in the comments! xx
