5 Essential Back-To-School Fashion Trends
1. Off-The-Shoulder Tops & Dresses
As Beyonce proved with Lemonade, there’s never been a better time to show a little shoulder. The relaxed style is fun, flirty, and very comfortable. To transform it into something fall-appropriate, find a long-sleeved option.
2. Statement Tees & Sweatshirts
Say what you mean with bold typography. A few simple words on a plain-colored top will pair nicely with printed leggings.
3. Bomber Jacket
Once things really cool down, you’ll want to have a bomber jacket. They’re great on top of simple T-shirts as well as fit-and-flare dresses. They’re classic, soft, roomy, and available in everything from pastels to metallics to illustrated landscape prints!
4. Plaids & Prints
This season, there is no shortage of fun patterns to wear. Combining highly patterned pieces can seem overwhelming, so if you want to take things slow, go monochrome. For instance, pair those teal tartan leggings with a teal top for a more subtle effect.
Short and sweet, the beloved 90s trend is still going strong from last year. A choker is a simple accessory that can say a lot. Take it a step further from the usual velvet or lace ribbon and bring some shiny metals into the mix.
