As you say goodbye to sweet summer, be sure you’ve got these fall must-haves in your arsenal to beat those back-to-school blues.

Give your skinny jeans a break (no really, though) for a pair of 1970s-inspired flares. You’ll be turning heads in the halls with legs for days when paired with suede wedges or booties.

Chunky cable-knit sweaters

Who doesn’t love a cozy cable knit when the crisp fall air starts to hit? With plenty of soft, chunky knits to choose from, pair your favorite elbow-patched sweater with a slim bottom for a completely chic look.

Statement Earrings

When it comes to accessorizing this fall, bold is better. On days when the snooze button proves a little too appealing, you’ll need a pair of eye-catching earrings to really pull a T-shirt and jeans outfit together for maximum style.

Cool Hosiery

What would fall be without tights aplenty? Jazz up any sweater dress or skirt with a pair of fierce tights. From patterns and prints to bright solids, cool hosiery is the best way to impress while still hiding leg stubble (because who shaves after summer anyway).

Floral Backpack

And what would back-to-school shopping be without the most important piece—the backpack? With winter florals taking over fashion runways, there is no better way to embody this trend than with a 90s-inspired floral bag to carry your classroom essentials.
