The back-to-school season usually brings to mind an annual shopping extravaganza. The first, of course, is for school supplies, which some of you might not be quite so thrilled about in comparison to those of us with Type-A personalities! But we think it’s pretty safe to say that back-to-school clothes shopping ranks pretty high on all of our lists! Whether you’re headed back to campus or the office, these five denim looks—inspired by the easy-going and versatile collections at American Eagle—will motivate you to dive into a fall clothing shopping spree sooner rather than later. Tell us—which is your favorite?
Perfect for a busy weekend out and about, this get-up features easy-to-slip-on sneakers, a light-weight classic T-shirt and a chic jacket for battling the early morning chill. Finished with a big tote (for your text books or market must-haves) and a pair of soft, vintage-style jeggings, you’ll be ready to take on whatever fun the weekend holds!
The two keys to a versatile fall wardrobe are neutral layers and poppy accessories. With this second look, you get the best of both worlds! Up top, don your favorite chambray button-up, and then loop on a layered gold necklace for added interest. Slip into a pair of dark jeggings, and to balance the look, add in a bold fringe tote and a pair of ballet flats.
Saturated denim is all the rage this season, as is a high-wasted pant. These sateen jeggings in a deep indigo wash are the perfect new addition to your fall wardrobe. All this bold pant needs is a simple white button-up, a pair of suede booties and some retro style sunglasses. These four items will make you look instantly pulled together and ready for brunch with the girls!
Looking to up the wow factor? Take things to the next level with this fourth look, which features a whole range of accessories and layered textures. Start with super distressed denim—both in your jeans choice and your jacket—and then layer on a slouchy oversized striped shirt. Slip into a pair of sexy black pumps, add gold earrings to your lobes and finish with a bright fringe crossbody purse. You’ll be perfectly decked out for your next dinner-and-a-movie date!
Finally, there’s no better time to celebrate the jewel-toned hues in your wardrobe than late summer and early autumn. It’s easy to make those colors count when you pull on a pair of olive-colored jeans and a deeply vibrant burgundy sweater. Because of the bold colorway, you won’t need to go heavy on the accessories to make your look feel complete—a simple wrap watch in mocha-colored leather is just the thing to bring everything together!
