August marks the end of summer—and the beginning of back-to-school shopping season! The first few weeks of the school year are the ideal time to mix new items into your wardrobe. Since the weather is still warm this time of year, you can wear your favorite denim shorts to class and jazz them up with these fun styling tips.
Dress for Comfort With an Oversized Shirt
Playing with proportion is always in fashion. An oversized shirt will remind you of the relaxed days of summer, even when you’re in the middle of a class. When you go shopping, pick tops in neutral tones like black, white, and gray, so you can wear them with any color denim.
Warm Up With Statement Sweaters
When the temperatures are cool first thing in the morning and afternoon, you can stay cozy by pairing your favorite sweater with denim cutoffs. This year’s hottest styles feature fun designs like allover prints and trendy emojis. You can even find fashionable sweaters in a variety of solid hues, so you can wear your school colors with pride.
Go Business Casual With a Blazer
Blazers are a wardrobe staple, even for students. Not only do they help you look sharp during presentations and job interviews, but they can also upgrade your shorts and T-shirt. This time of year, shopping centers are filled with great deals on jackets and blazers—why not buy one in classic black and one in a fun color or print for more styling options?
