Your basic fall must-haves include:
TOMS SHOES: Toms are a definite must-have for this school year! They may not be the most stylish of shoes, but they really are good for school. They’re comfy, easy to put on, and you can just throw them on in the morning with any outfit and be set for the day. Another great benefit is that they come in an almost unlimited variety of different colors and designs that you can choose from! (And don’t forget that for each pair of TOMS that you buy, another pair is donated to someone in need.) You can buy TOMS shoes at , , and .
Lululemon/Yoga Pants: I would have to say that are the quintessential item for school! I’m obsessed with them. They are the most comfortable pants that have ever been made, which makes them an absolute need for school. Every student knows how hard it is to get up in the early morning hours for school, so why get all dressed up? Just put on a pair of Lululemons and you will look fabulous as ever, guaranteed!
Juicy/Designer Book Bag: The old school Jansport backpack is so out, and shoulder bags are in! They’re stylish, they’re big enough to fit books and pens, and they are easy to carry around all those crazy crowded hallways. Ladies, we all know it’s about accessorizing, so spoil yourself with the greatest school accessory you could have: a designer book bag. My personal preference is Juicy Courture, which is available at and .
Mod Colored Sweater: Mod colors are huge this fall! () Think Twiggy! Lots and lots of saturated colors like bright reds, oranges, and yellows. Pair these colors with tunics, jeans, or a stylish pea coat and you’ll be the most stylish kid in school.
School Spirited Hairbands. As I mentioned before, local business makes fabulous hair bands. What’s great is you can order them with your school slogan or in your school colors. These are perfect for showing your fierce school sprit! You can wear them to football games or to school.
Hunter Boots: With Seattle being one of the rainiest cities, rain boots are a must for school. I suggest Hunter Boots as a chic option. You can get traditional Wellington boots (cut for ladies), rain boots with wedges or heels, or more equestrian-inspired styles. They are fashionable and the perfect rain boots. You can get these boots at
Follow these fabulous finds for school, and like I said earlier, you will have you turning eyes and exuding confidence as you strut your stuff down those school hallways this fall.
