Comeback to Campus

One week left of summer & then it's back to campus. Start this year off fresh, browse a collection of college girl necessities and my favorite fall picks via Nasty Gal.

Syllabus week.
As relaxing/lame as it is, this is your chance to pull out all of the statement pieces. Fall trends  should be worn with caution; denim on denim only works if they're different washes and fits. A denim button up is a safe, stylish first day look. If you're a bit less ballsy, grab some floral high waist shorts and a gem-toned top. Over-sized blouses are easily dressed up or down.. & Let's be real here, 10 out of 12 weeks of any semester are spent in the comfort of yoga pants and a quarter zip hoodie. The time is now, fellow fashionistas.

First impressions are everything.
Stay styled while you settle into the dorm, but don't try too hard..especially you, freshman. A cut out blouse, wrap around romper or slit sleeve tee are a few key pieces every college girl can rock.

 Ah, the weekends.
A significant part of the college experience. 
Girlfriend, please leave the leopard print faux satin mesh cut-out WetSeal body-con dress at home.. unless you're going for a trashy, too-many-shots kind of vibe. Limited cut-outs and neons are bold choices. Tank tops and metallic toned skirts are a classic win, and graphic tees with zipper bottomed skirts are golden. 

Spring & summer were dominated by pastel colored skinnies.
Take the next step this season with patterned, fitted bottoms that pop against neutral colored tops and tanks. Pattern-blocking is do-able, especially with floral fabric.

Last but not least, finish off your back to school wardrobe with a pair of nude Jeffrey Campbell Litas and a neon or leather cross body bag, perfect for toting around campus. Start the new semester off right, styled by Nasty Gal.
