Just because you’re not gearing up for the start of a new school year doesn’t mean you should skip out on all the back-to-school fashion. From trendy carryalls to a new pair of fall shoes, there’s plenty to shop for even if you’re not shuttling to and from class in the coming weeks. Here, items to help you instantly relive your days as a co-ed.
A Functional Carryall
Talk about a classic. Le Pliage, the nylon-and-leather tote from French label Longchamp comes in various colors and sizes, but the large version is perfect for carrying books, gym clothes or important files. Get it customized with your initials and keep both class and cubicle mates from mistaking it as their own.
A Sleek Gadget
When you depend on your smartphone for everything, including telling time, a reliable timepiece isn’t high on the list of priorities. Enter Tag Heuer Carrera Wearable 01, the new smart watch by the Swiss purveyor that’s sure to make it to the top of your back-to-school must-haves. Techy and trustworthy, the Android-compatible watch promises to be a fast favorite when it goes on sale in October.
Cool Comfy Sneakers
Few footwear options transcend age and tastes more than the classic sneaker. And thanks to Marni’s Selva on Drill version, the ‘It’ shoe for back-to-school not only satisfies your gym class requirement but is also chic enough to wear nine-to-five. Break from the high heels in this fashion-forward pair with Velcro straps and contrasting piping.
The Statement Jacket
Versace’s Vanitas leather jacket is a stylish take on the biker’s staple. It’s cut femininely and made from rich, buttery leather, making for a back-to-school accessory that’s at once stylish and practical (though you won’t want to stuff this one in your locker). Plus, the edgy number is just what you need to elevate your look for a post-class or afterhours meeting.
