It’s back to school time and you want to make sure you are looking your best not only on the first day of school but for the rest of the year. We love hitting up CrossIron Mills for our best buys as it’s filled with the most amazing stores and of course, the latest and greatest in trends. When shopping for items, you don’t want to be THAT person that wears their new wardrobe to death so here are a few tips to think about when shopping for back to school.
1. LAYER (THE GAP)
Our mornings are pretty nippy, so don’t be caught with unattractive goose bumps on your body whilst sporting a tank top and short. Be smart and think about layering with scrarves, lighter jackets for the fall, and sweaters. Pieces that you can take off once our hot fall afternoons come to play!
2. INVESTMENT PIECES (H&M)
Yes, back to school is all about that one item everyone is coveting. Get it, but also buy pieces such as blazers, jackets, and pants that you can pair with other items in your wardrobe so you are not wearing out that one piece and you become known as the guy with the one and only fancy shirt.
3. INCORPORATE TRENDY, SPARINGLY (KIXS)
Remember not to take a trend too far. You don’t want to be dressed in head to toe fluorescent colours even though they are a trend. You want to make a statement with your fashion but a good statement! Keep the trend to a one or two pieces maximum and you wont go wrong. Just because Bad Girl Ri Ri is working it, you don’t have to.
