With another school year ahead, there's only one question fashion-conscious college chicks ask themselves before going to school: "What do I wear?" To make it easier for you, we've rounded up a collection of back-to-school pieces you can't go wrong with, whether you dig comfy basics, trendy ensembles, or even chic corporate wear for those practicum sessions!
You don't need to spend a lot for school clothes; try wearing your old graphic or statement tees and pair it with nice-fitting colored jeans. Basic pieces such as plain camisoles from Uniqlo or tank tops from Solo will be your best friend on those lazy dressing days; just wear a fab jacket over it and you're good to go!
Going back to school in June coincides with what some people call "sweater weather". As the name says, make sure to keep a handy cardigan, like the polka-dot piece from Benetton, or a tough biker jacket in your bag. For subjects where you need to dress up a bit for practicum or for class presentations, nab that sexy corporate look with tailored blazers and vests from Dorothy Perkins paired with feminine lace tops or sheer blouses.
Our weather can be unpredictable at times, so if you prefer to wear something short (fasyon-short, not skanky-short!), wear tailored silk or gradient colored shorts from Topshop and pair them with long-sleeved tops or simple tees. Feeling bold? Wear printed trousers to stand out from the crowd.
