Feeling a little down about summer being over? We have to admit that we are also going to miss the days spent by the pool, soaking up the sun and lazing around. However, there are plenty of things to look forward to come fall, like cool scholarly basics such as bomber silhouettes made popular by the varsity jacket, boxy schoolboy blazers and slouchy backpacks. Among celebs embracing this trend, include style standouts such as Michelle Williams, Taylor Swift and Lana Del Rey.
If you want to work this oh-so-cool-for-school look, there are just a few essentials you’ll need to get you through the rest of the year in style, and we’ve got just the picks for you. From the perfect jacket to roomy bags for your books, you’ll be sure to stand out from the crowd in these back-to-school must-haves.
Acne’s leather version of the bomber jacket is a fresh update on the classic topper and oh-so-cool. Pair it with Mother’s high waisted skinny jeans and a Diane von Furstenberg blouse. A new pair of sneakers are a must for your wardrobe this fall and we love Sandro Amaranth’s suede and leather wedge silhouette.
Bonus: we love the on-trend oxblood hue! A 3.1 Phillip Lim suede satchel will let you carry your daily essentials in style.
Club Monaco is known for their preppy classics and it’s no surprise that they have mastered the navy schoolboy blazer. We love it paired with Marc Jacobs trousers and Tod’s metallic loafers for a new take on the school uniform. Alexander Wang’s Marti backpack is the ultimate “it” bag that you’ll want to carry in and out of the classroom.
