Time To Update The Uniform

Instead of just heading back to school, college or university as a Plain Jane, why not head back in total style and confidence – transform yourself by incorporating this season’s trends into your outfit. Why not go for Geek Chic for instance? Embrace/create a formal look, with an eye catching accessory, giving your outfit a voice above everyone else.

Get the look, style yourself in monochrome – a recyclable style for all seasons. A white shirt is perfect for this can be worn for both a formal and casual style. For a casual event you can make a few simple alternations – rolling up the sleeves, untucking the shirt and unbutton a couple of buttons. Contrasting the white shirt with a pair of loose fitting pleated black trousers will add the ‘Granny Factor’ to your outfit, a style that is totally now! To off the outfit, consider a simplistic black sandal or even white flatforms.

To bring character to the outfit, think eye catching accessories. The main attraction is going to be the accessory of the season - Granny glasses. These always guaranteed to add a quirky twist to your appearance.

The other essential accessory to the back to school season is a bag. Carry all of your must haves, as well as those scrumpled bits of paper that you’ve forgotten about, with stylish ease. Try adding a metallic backpack with the straps pulled tight to add a touch of organised glamour.

If Geek Chic is too formal for you, then how about a more casual look. Go for more of a street fashion but with no compromise on style.

This outfit is a simplistic one, styled around simple white or grey t shirt – the perfect staple item for any wardrobe. Add a super casual pair of jeans, think black jeans rolled to just above the ankle and finished off with black thick sole ankle boots.

Complete this get-up with an edgy jacket. Try keeping it very on the street with a bomber jacket, maybe even purchasing a size too big, to make a feature of the oversized design. Try green or black as both colours will complement the simplistic outfit. You could always turn the outfit into more of a biker style with a black leather jacket, releasing the inner rebel from you and letting the teachers and lecturers know that you are back and you fully intend to make them earn their wage!

To flatter the look and keep it simplistic, add minimal yet bold accessories to make the lasting impression you’re aiming for!
