It will soon be that time of year again when we pack our school bags and head off for the beginning of another school year! Some of us will be excited and some of us won’t, this is normal, but one thing we all need is that one special outfit for our return to school. There are some basic rules that we have to stick to when picking our school uniforms; trouser styles, skirt length and heels all need to be looked at, but this doesn’t mean that we can’t have some fun with our styles!
The Knee Length Pencil Skirt
The pencil skirt is back and it is not just confined to the office. This year’s perfect school skirt has to be the humble pencil skirt. They are smart enough to be worn for the majority of occasions, from school, to your friend’s house and home again, this staple is not to be missed.
Why have one when you can have two? A multipack such as this one gives you both a black and a grey skirt, both acceptable colours for school. They are also stretchy, making them comfortable considering you are going to be wearing them all day long. Shop online at http://www.littlewoods.com/ to nab these beauties and feel chic all day long.
Get Creative with Your Shoes
The humble plain ballet pump is no more. Now we have creative versions of this classic adorning every runway. Whether they have embellishments, are a funky bold colour or they have added straps; they are all equally fun. One of the most important things when deciding upon your school shoes is the comfort factor. Let’s face it, you will be wearing them for a long period of time and especially when the weather takes a turn for the worst.
This pair from a collection of Kickers shoes and boots are perfect for school and fun. They have a hard wearing sole and comfortable upper leather, that will make all the difference when it comes to comfort. The best bit is the ankle strap detailing, making them perfect for summer and even over socks in the winter.
The Sun can Shine All Year Long
Summer 2013’s signature colour is pale yellow. We have seen this filter throw the catwalks of YSL, right down to the high street. So why not bring this into your school looks too? Choosing this shade of yellow will keep you right on trend and smart enough for your day of learning. Whether this is through a dress or even just a humble shirt, you will be bringing the sunshine with you wherever you go. These polo shirts are a great example of functional school wear, but with on-trend styling.
These polo shirts may look simple, but imagine them style with a boho necklace and friendship bracelets.
Whatever you choose to wear to go back to school, remember these simple rules; keep it comfortable, sharp and bang on trend.
