Hittin’ the mall this weekend? Here’s what to stock up on before it’s time to head back to the books.
A sharp blazer
We dig how this jaunty jacket takes a summer staple (stripes!) and puts an awesome autumn spin on it (check out those deep hues). Mix ‘n’ match it with floral dresses for a cool, eclectic look or pair it with high-waisted jeans and a blouse for something a li’l more tailored.
Tailored shorts are major this season and getting a pair that’s decked in checks doubles the trend factor...in a good way. A slouchy sweatshirt keeps it from looking too uptight.
When there are so many items to snag for school, jewelry can take a backseat. But we love the idea of scooping up a signature piece, especially if it reminds you of your summer escapades.
Maybe you’re into cute mocs or ankle boots with cutouts or rad desert boots. No matter what your style a pair of go-with-anything ankle boots is key for fall. As comfy as sneakers, but way more stylish.
A clever tote

Sure backpacks are super hot right now, but how can you pass by a toter that’ll help you keep your endless piles of papers together? Nearly impossible.
