Back To Style
We know the feeling well — shopping for your back to school clothes and choosing that perfect first day of school outfit to show you’ve earned your style stripes over the summer. This year our editors have done some of your homework for you, with this adorable back to school look we’ve picked, complete with just enough trendy fashion-forward appeal, comfort, and individuality.
You can show off the hottest trend for the season, leather, in these fabulous H&M shorts paired with textured or opaque tights. Or substitute the shorts for leather or leather like leggings. We also suggest wearing them as part of an effortless, feminine look with this pretty embroidered ivory Topshop top. A boho, prairie-girl top like this one can also transition into the cooler months paired with your favourite coloured denim. Our editors love the versatility of a piece you can wear with any of your favourite bottoms.
Add It Up
Your math lesson for the day? Add on some delectable accessories for a back to school look that will put you in the running for best dressed before the lunch bell rings.

Now that we’ve prepared you to look great on the first day at school, you just need to come up with something to say when the teacher asks what you did over the summer. Shopped, of course!
