When it’s time for school to start, I try to give my summer wardrobe an update by pairing items with pieces for fall. In this outfit, I’ll do just that to make an ensemble that is fun, cool and school appropriate! Hope you like it!
I love high-waisted jeans so much. They flatter my small waist and are just comfortable. I just got an awesome new pair from Annie Sez (that I couldn’t find online) that hit my tiniest point. They’ve got four buttons and have a very classic silhouette, but they’re acid wash, so they’re super fun and flattering. If you don’t feel comfortable with a cool acid wash print, look for something with a dark rinse.
The awesome part about wearing high-waisted jeans? You can wear ultra cute crop tops without worrying about showing too much midriff. Crop tops draw attention to a small waist and show a little bit of skin without being too scandalous. Just make sure they’re not against your school dress code before wearing one! If you’re wearing a pair of acid wash jeans, I would stick to something solid but not boring, like this cute cutout crop top from Aéropostale. If you’re feeling brave, pair your jeans with a patterned crop top. Just make sure the tops have at least one similar color so they don’t clash, but avoid being matchy-matchy (unless it’s intentional!) If you’re going with a simple pair of plain blue jeans, pair them with a cute floral crop top to bring a bit of summer to the hallways!
(Tip: Let your crop tops air dry so they don’t shrink and become so small that you can’t wear them! That’s unattractive and a waste of money!)
For this outfit, I would go with something effortless and simple to keep your outfit grounded and urban. I’d pair this with a pair of slip on shoes or a pair of Converse high tops. That way I’ll be cute and comfortable!
For this outfit, I’d want to include some super cute and glam accessories. I’d wear a stack of homemade friendship bracelets on one wrist, and a watch and a few bangles and thin bracelets on the other. I would stick with stud earrings to keep attention on your outfit, as well as a few thin rings and one short and one medium length necklace or a layered necklace. This combination will make you look cool, but not like you’re trying too hard.
