School is (almost) back in session and while we’ve outgrown our classroom days, we can’t help but feel nostalgic for the excitement that came with back-to-school shopping. Summer might have been over, but the void was filled with shiny pencil cases, colorful binders, and crisp new notebooks to start the year off right. Who would have thought school supplies could give you such a rush?! Student or not, September is right around the corner and there’s no better time to stock up on fresh pieces that will transition your look from summer to fall. Whether you’re headed back to homeroom, or you’re back on the office grind, we’ve got you covered with A+ worthy accessories to get you there.
Back(pack) to Cool
Prep for success with a stylish backpack that will help lighten your load. When in doubt, stick to the classics. The Warren Backpack is the Botkier OG of backpacks. This bag was influenced by NYC street style with shiny leather and urban hardware – the perfect combo to elevate your classroom game. The Trigger Backpack is another classic style that was reimagined as a backpack. It comes with soft leather and convertible straps to transform the wear-everywhere backpack into a shoulder bag or crossbody with multi-functional ease.
The Cobble Hill Backpack is an on-trend style staple that comes in 2 sizes and a variety of colors to suit your every mood. Try the mini backpack on days with fewer classes or go bold with the larger style in cool colorblock combos for fall. For another dual-sized option, try to Valentina Wrap Backpack in the regular or mini version for a sleek style that will hold as much as you need to carry.
Then there’s the it-girl classified Waverly – this backpack’s unique square silhouette is perfectly shaped for books and beyond, plus its chic round hardware adds a dose of fun. Whether you’re trekking across campus, or living that commuter life, these backpacks are must-have, handsfree options.
We say this a lot and we’ll say it again. Everyone needs a solid carry-all tote. It’s a classic silhouette that will never go out of style and provides day-to-day functionality. Let’s start with the not-so-basic, basics. The Highline Tote is minimally chic with clean lines and adds a little bit of shine to your daily wardrobe with a distressed glazed leather. If an open tote isn’t your style, try the Highline Satchel for a lighter option. This satchel has a top zip and removable strap for multiple carrying options.
For all the sporty spices out there, the Trinity Tote adds a touch of athletic style with racing stripe details + it’s roomy enough to pack your gym clothes for after school practice. The Nomad Tote is cool with a boho touch. The braided, whipstitch handles are the perfect accent to this spacious everyday tote. Bonus: this tote comes in mini version for days when you need to lessen the load.
The Lennox Convertible Satchel is a ladylike option that can be styled 3 ways. Carry it by the top handle or use the convertible strap to create a crossbody. The real kicker? The convertible straps turn this satchel into a backpack. What can we say…we love options.
Score a perfect attendance with comfy kicks that will get you to class on time, every time. Sneakers are the low-key style that instantly add a dose of cool to any outfit. Slip on the Harper Slip On Sneakers for an easy morning exit in a variety of colors to coordinate with your wardrobe. Our pick: on-trend leopard. The Harvey Sneaker laces up in a variety of materials, like an iridescent silver that gives off futuristic vibes. The Hayley Slip On Sneaker is another original that takes us back to our very first line of shoes. Try the textured croc in chalk white, or go bold in multi- colored, graffiti-inspired graphics.
Keep the essence of summer going with espadrilles in neutral color combos. The Wesley espadrille is made with lightweight canvas and accented with an oversized bow for a feminine touch. The Wren Espadrille is a lace-up option that provides comfort and style in neutral canvas, or nautical stripes. The Annika Flat was made for the classic girl looking for all-day ease. The pointed toe and sleek lines make this shoe a must. If you’re lucky enough to experience warm weather year-round, an open toe sandal is a casual way to make a statement.
The Maje Slide is an uber trendy sandal that covers all your bases. Take your pick from clear and neon color combos. The Fargo Sandal is a luxe leather slide that’s ready to pair with your back-to-school denim, or a loose and airy dress topped with an oversized blazer. Or you can pair that flowy dress with the Moira slide, which offers a touch of bohemian style with braided straps and natural leather.
