Well, it’s here again — back-to-school. Everyone knows that back-to-school is when everyone pulls out all the stops to look their absolute best. The beautiful thing about fashion is that it’s not hard. With just a few basic items that you probably already have in your closet, you can totally rock your back-to-school look. Here are just a few examples of how basic items can totally transform your look. All of these outfits can easily be recreated and morphed into your own personal style.
Black and denim is a classic pairing. This skirt with buttons all the way down works with any top, but putting it with a plain black top allows you to accessorize.
I won’t lie, this is one of my favorite looks for back-to-school. The shirt is a DIY project, and can so easily be swapped for a band or graphic tee if you’re not crafty. Ripped jeans are a staple and go with everything. I highly recommend you invest in a bomber or letterman jacket. They immediately take your jeans and t-shirt look to a whole new level. Pro tip for this outfit: pair a ballcap with it.
Millennial pink is IN! This velvet top with a strappy bralette under it is the perfect pairing for those still-hot early fall days. This can be paired with shorts, jeans of any color or a skater skirt.
