Whilst shopping earlier today, I saw loads of students frantically searching for clothes to wear on their first day at school. Girls rummaging through piles of soft sweaters and thick chunky knit cardigans, desperate to find that one, special outfit that would make them distinguish from the crowd on their first day back to school! So without further ado, I came back home and decided to curate my own «Back to School» wishlist, including pretty yet comfortable pieces of clothing and accessories to wear, hoping to give you a few ideas.
When thinking of back to school outfits, to me, the first and most important thing is the backpack. It has to be a stylish one that will take you from lecture theaters to casual cinema nights, but also sturdy and spacious to carry all of your things without breaking after the first semester. I found a beautiful,very affordable, black, leather backpack from Doca, a Greek brand that is very popular in my city. I have double-checked and they ship internationally for a very low price so it’s a win-win situation for everyone. The second thing that you have to consider for your Back to school outfit is the pair of shoes you’ll be wearing. It has to be a comfortable one as the first day of school there’s loads of walking and standing to be done. I am all about trainers and these Nike Free TR8 are simply perfect for the occasion! Now, onto the outfit, a pair of black jeans, a plan top and a soft cardigan will do the trick. Don’t overdress yourself and try to be as comfortable as possible in your own skin as this is what will make you feel and look confident. Don’t forget to wear accessories because they will take your outfit to another level and as Anna Dello Russo once said ‘accessories are like vitamins to fashion- as such, you should use them liberally‘. Remember, you never get a second chance to make a first impression, so make sure it’s a good one!
Wish all the best on your first day at school!
