If you don’t want the campus fashion police to come after you, try to follow this back-to-school fashion advice.
DO wear something new. There’s something very satisfying about ripping the price tag off a new item you have been saving for a special day.
DO try a new ‘do. Before going back to class, mix in a few lowlights, try a new length or go for bangs.
DO recycle, reuse, reinvent. Incorporate your summer wardrobe into fall. Tanks are great for layering and shorts and skirts can be worn with long sleeves and fall boots.
DO find yourself and be yourself. Effortless style is where it’s at. Use the start of a new school year to take a few risks and find your personal style. Try a vintage store for unique pieces or dig out an old favourite and make it new again.
DON’T be a copycat. Make sure not to wear the entire outfit you bought off the mannequin at Zara. People will notice — and not in a good way. Mix and match, it’s wonderful.
