Back to School Styles: Fall Preview 2018

It’s almost August, which means it’s time to start thinking about back to school shopping! I know some of you may be thinking, “UGH, do we have to?!” But, back to school shopping can be super fun since it’s the time when you get to start picking out your new fall wardrobe and be oh-so stylish walking down the halls. Keep reading to check out our top picks for Fall 2018!

cardigan

The most staple of all fall outfits is this look. It is great for almost any occasion, and can be SO versatile since there are SO MANY ways to achieve this look! If it were up to us (and this heat wave would go away) we would be wearing a cozy cardigan every single day. Finding a cardigan, or sweater, that is made with a textured knit fabric is the way to go! It gives your look a pattern, while still wearing neutrals.

Denim is also a staple piece to stock up on for fall. As the temps start to drop, you will need a few core styles of denim jeans to rotate through the year! Kancan Jeans and Flying Monkey Jeans are two of our favorite brands that we swear by.  They offer different styles and fits, while all being so comfortable and sculpt to your every move. One of our go-to looks is denim on denim.  This put together look can be achieved by wearing your favorite denim jeans (or jean skirt) and pairing it with a jean jacket or button up chambray top.  To let your personality shine, wear a graphic tshirt underneath or add your unique accessories to add a pop of color.

Shoes

Now, you can’t talk back to school shopping without mentioning the best part: NEW SHOES! Finding neutral booties is a great investment in your fall wardrobe.  They are so great since you can easily dress them up and down, while still remaining comfortable throughout your day.  A few of our favorites are from Qupid Shoes, Soda Shoes, and City Classified Shoes! Also, you can’t forget about your new cool sneakers to complete your athleisure looks for days when you really don’t have the time or energy to be completely glam. 🙂

cc and sherpa

If you haven’t hopped aboard the sherpa train, or if you’ve been living under a rock and have no idea what a sherpa pullover is, now is DEFINITELY the time.  Sherpa is huuuuuge for fall, and now is the best time to stock up on your favorite styles! (PS. These are amazing Christmas gifts.) You never have to worry about being freezing while sitting in class, or putting on a bulky winter coat again.  They are literally so warm and cozy, you’ll never want to take it off! A great pair to sherpa are beanies! CC Beanies are our favorite beanies to wear when it gets cold.  They offer a variety of colors and styles, that you’ll be sure to find one that suits your needs.

Athleisure, activewear, what-have-you.  All we know is that the trend is in AND it is comfortable.  It’s a win-win situation that will have you adding to your collection on the reg.  However, if you are unsure of how to pull off this style, we are here to show you where to start!  Keep reading to check out some of our activewear styles from Mono B Clothing.

The greatest thing about active wear clothing is that you can go from brunch, to class, to running errands, and to the gym all in one outfit! Or if you’re like us, trick people into thinking you are headed to the gym when in fact you are headed home from class to watch 8 hours of Netflix…  You are totally capable of looking put together in leggings and a pullover without looking like a bum.

First things first: leggings. You can NEVER have too many pairs.  Anyone who tells you otherwise, well, they’re just plain wrong. We have recently gotten in so many cute and trendy pairs of leggings and you definitely need one of each pair! These leggings are made with a comfortable stretch fabric that is perfect for lounging or cardio. With different designs, lengths, and colors, you will easily be able to mix and match with your wardrobe day to day.

leggings

If you want to be SUPER trendy and put-together, buy an active-wear set! These sports bra crop tops are perfect for the warmer months coming up.  They come in cute matching prints as some of the leggings we carry and feature a comfortable, padded construction. Not comfortable with wearing only the crop top and leggings? Throw on a basic tee or tank over the sports bra and you’re all set.  For chilly or windy days, invest in a neutral windbreaker or athleisure pullover.  With muted tones and a simple design, your look will go from bleak to chic in no time.

Last, but certainly not least, you will need to invest in a neutral, comfy, and dependable pair of tennis shoes to complete your look! These shoes will be able to take you through the day in style from your morning coffee runs to your gym workouts at night.  Also, try Boho Bandeaus or Teleties to pull your hair back in a messy bun when you decided to hit snooze for the fifth time before class that day.

Basic & Graphic Tees Your Closet Needs

header

With athleisure and casual wear being so in and fashionable right now, it’s important to stock up on some basic and graphic tees! They are so versatile and cute, that people won’t even realize you are just wearing a t-shirt! So many different brands are putting their own spin on basic and graphic tees, that it is so hard to choose just one. Some of our favorites are from Vanilla Bay, PIKO, Friday + Saturday, and Lime N Chili (to name a few!).

Your year-round wardrobe definitely needs a couple tees to choose from and rotate through throughout the seasons. A basic solid colored tee, a basic striped tee, and a fun graphic tee are completely worthy of a spot in your closet! (You can thank us later.) These are styles that can take you from work or school to dinner and a night out in no time.

The greatest thing about basic & graphic tshirts is that you can style them in so many different ways to suite your overall taste, and depending on what your plans are for the day.  They are 100% a staple for your closet, in our opinion! We know you are probably thinking, “How can something so simple and comfy be transformed into a trendy and sophisticated outfit?” Well, since they can be worn alone with jeans and sneakers, worn alone with dark wash denim and heeled booties, or layered under your favorite jackets, cardigans, and kimonos, it is so simple to dress these tops up and add some interest to your overall facade.

basics

For example, throw on a basic tee and wear it casual with leggings, a lightweight long cardigan, and flats or fashion sneakers and you are ready to run errands or attend class. Dress it up by putting on your favorite graphic tee, some destructed denim jeans, heels, and a blazer and you are ready for dinner or a date!
