It's that time of year again and as fast as the summer went, you can't deny that little part of you that longs for fall fashion and luxurious layering. Even if you're not going back to school, it's hard not to get in that mindset of wanting to transition over your whole wardrobe as we enter September. Here's a few pieces that we think are essential as you head into the school year.
Nothing says back to school quite like a brand new backpack, but with the amazing styles that are available now, you won't have to sacrifice any sophistication when you reach for that great carry-all. Opt for a rich colour that will pair well with tons of looks. We also recommend going with leather or a coated canvas for amazing durability.
One wardrobe staple that should never be forgotten is a great pair of boots. Opt for a shorter style that will be a no-brainer for jeans and pants or a great knee-high pair for giving your dresses a casual yet sleek look.
There's nothing quite like cracking open a brand new notebook and putting pen to paper. Even if school is a thing of the past for you, keep yourself organized and have a place to jot down any great new ideas while you're on the go.
With Fall 2014 collections from The Row, Celine, and Michael Kors all showcasing a plethora of sweater dresses it's easy to see how this will be a major trend and must-have for the cooler months ahead. We suggest thinking of it like an oversized sweater, something that you'll want to curl up in but could also look great layered with some opaque tights and boots.
