Let me preface by saying that you don't have to spend a fortune to look your best. In fact, all of these items are less than $100, most under $50. You will want to invest in a few timeless staple pieces that you can mix and match year-round. For example, this striped shirt ($19) is the perfect layering shirt that will look great no matter the season, plus, it is super comfortable for those long hours of lectures and library time. A classic blazer for presentations or interviews is also great to have on hand. I like this blazer because it is tailored and less than $40, which is a bargain. Of course, you also need a stylish and durable tote to carry the essentials in between classes. I love this tan tote for under $25. It looks like a Tory Burch bag, but is a fraction of the cost! Finally, I am a stickler for pearls. I have this pearl necklace ($32) and wear it all the time. I wear it with casual outfits as well as more dressy looks, and always get a lot of compliments on it. It is also a great layering piece. I love to put a crystal necklace underneath to give it a little extra sparkle. What are your favorite back to school basics?
Good luck to everyone and study hard- it will pay off!! :-) Thanks for stopping by!
