Getting school wardrobe essentials can be overwhelming and costly. Read Peter Minkoff’s guide to getting school wardrobe that will save you time and money here.

Yes! Another year, another chance to shine! Your own personal runway is waiting for you once again. Of course, your main goal is learning new things and paying attention in class. But why wouldn’t you look awesome while doing it if you can? Leave those lazy summer days behind you and focus on achieving your goals.

The best advice I have for you is a tiny hack of mine, which is to always plan your outfit the night before school and leave it all on the chair or at some visible place of your room.

There are two reasons for this: first − you have a lot more time, patience and energy to plan your outfit carefully than you have it in the morning and second − it will be so much easier when you wake up and realise that you can relax and take your time having breakfast, and doing your other morning rituals since your clothes are already prepared and waiting for you. Whatever you do, make sure that you don’t violate your school’s dress code!

How to choose the best back to school wardrobe you need?

1. Shoes

Your shoes need to be versatile. It doesn’t matter if you have 2 or 22 pairs of shoes, it is so much better when you can combine your footwear with a lot of garments. Don’t wear heels to school please, you will have a plenty of time to have ankle pains and other difficulties later; for now, enjoy the beauty of non-tacky flats.

2. Pants

By pants I don’t just mean jeans. Although jeans are a really popular garment, which is normal since you can combine them literally with everything, there are other fish in the sea. You can buy some cool black skinny trousers, but also beige and the always trendy: ochre ones. They go awesome with black and white.

3. Tops

This is the best part since you have a total freedom. Replenish your stock with all kinds of different shirts such as simple tees, printed ones, hoodies, tank tops, college sweatshirts, flannel shirts etc. The beauty is in combining different styles, colours, materials and textures.

4. Accessories

Don’t overdo here. It’s not a night out, so keep it simple. For example, when wearing a simple top and cardigan, tie your hair in a bun, take a simple ribbon choker and put on some cool statement earrings with it. Next, put a one simple ring on your finger and put on a cute tiny watch on the same hand. Use a long multilayered necklace when you aren’t wearing any belt. My personal favourite combo is a colourful bib necklace with high neck or a bulky sweater. Fabulous!

5. Jackets

For the jacket, it goes the same as for the shoes: keep it versatile and simple! Use a neutral colour like steel grey or black. Depending on where you live, and a climate condition there, the thickness of the jacket is your choice. You must always feel warm and cosy in it.

6. Bag

Oh my, I almost forgot about this one. The ultimate accessory of them all – the bag! Now, this depends on your style a lot, but the best would be to start with a black bag because it’s the most neutral and versatile. Later, if you’re into buying bags, you can choose any colour and design you like, just make sure that it’s oversized version since you need to fit all those books inside of it, right?

This was basically it, I wish you a wonderful school year and good grades! XoXo my dear.
