If there was one thing we learned in our school days, it’s that skirts and sweaters, stick together like birds of a feather. Well we may be a little rusty on our maxims, but the algebra of outfits has stayed with us through and through. Though school uniforms have had all kinds of sleazy renditions in the last 12 years (ahem Brittany Spears), there is something undeniably romantic and retro about demure collegiate attire-and it’s “appropriate.” We’re thinking along the lines of Allie Magraw in Love Story, but we’ll trade the peacoat for a leather biker jacket. While skirts and sweaters may not be as exciting as a backless dress, or six inch stilettos, they’re the kind of investment pieces you’ll be coming back to again and again. This is your simple 3-step-recipe to back to school success. Plus, if you put your styling skills to the test, you’re sure to stand out amongst a sea of jeans and t-shirts. So get to shopping and head back to school in style!
