Somehow, it’s already Labor Day Weekend. Summer is basically over and gone. For most kids living in their prime, school has just started and syllabus week is coming to a close. Before jumping headfirst into fall fashion, we’re going to pause with some simple back-to-school inspired outfits.
High School Hero! It’s a pretty basic look, but a each one of these items are staples in your closet. This navy gingham button down is casual and I’ll almost always wear it with it’s sleeves rolled up. I’ll be pairing it with black jeans and olive khakis in just a few months, but for now I’m rocking a 7″ navy chino short while I can. I’m always cautious when wearing predominately one color (I don’t enjoy looking like a blueberry!), but pairing a solid with a subtle design or print generally works for me. With this outfit, the color accent comes with the New Balance sneakers – a mossy green, but still carries that navy through the outfit. The backpack pictured is The No. 5 Backpack from my friends at Proper Assembly!

This second look is still a very casual and playful look, but a little rougher aroudn the edges. But it’s an outfit I really dig. The Levis jean jacket adda a nice denim layer and breaks up the horizontal stripes from the Vince tee. These are paired with bonobos 7″ chinos as well. I found I wear the stone grey shorts much more often that I imainged I would at first, they happen to go with just about everything in my closet. I’m rocking an alternative to Converse’s high-top chuck.. the classic PJ Cruisers, which might be the most comfortable pair of shoes I own. period. They’re my go-to music fest sneaker since there’s a lot of walking around & standing, but great for putting around town too.
