Back To School Shopping Guide 2017

Okay, the first thing we need to do is break down the essentials for a school wardrobe. There are plenty of items that we might want to grab for fun but aren’t exactly useful when it comes to studying and attending class. The five must haves for every student wardrobe are jeans, boots, sweatshirts, backpacks, and comfy sweaters. Those are the essentials that carried me through college. They are also extremely easy pieces to combine and create several different looks with.

I also worked out a lot in college, so sneakers and gym clothes were a must haves for me. But if you know yourself well enough to know that gym isn’t even hitting the radar for school, forget about them this time.
