Back to School Fashion 2011 – Basics on a Budget

Students of all ages are returning to school in the next few weeks, and while books and classes are key, there’s nothing more important than the fashion! Since most students are on a tight budget, they (or their parents) can’t afford to buy a whole new wardrobe. Whether you’re rockin’ the playground or the dorm room this fall, here are three must have items which are both versatile and affordable!

Denim – Colored & Flares

Each season brings new fashion trends, but for busy and active students, jeans are a must have for back to school! If you’re a trendsetter at heart, you must own a pair of colored jeans for fall. Walk on the wild side with a pair of bold cobalt blue skinnies or royal purple jeggings, both would look great with a graphic tee, cardigan or blazer.  Go casual with a pair of sneakers or dress them up with boots for a funkier look! These lovely jeggings are just $16.50 from Kmart.com!

If colored jeans aren’t your style, but you still want to add some new denim to your wardrobe, opt for a pair of flare jeans. Skinnies have been all the rage for the last few years, but wider legs, flares, and boot cuts have officially made a comeback. These jeans are more relaxed than their super fit counterparts, and can be worn with just about everything. For girls, go for a bohemian vibe with flare jeans and a peasant blouse. And for boys, be the epitome of casual cool with boot cut denim and a cotton tee. Check out Old Navy to stock up on jeans starting at just $10! (Use promo code THANKS on the Old Navy website to get an additional 30% off!)

Custom Kicks

Nothing says back to school fashion than a new pair of shoes! Sneakers and tennis shoes are a must, but can you imagine making a statement in your own set of customized kicks? America’s favorite sneaker brand, Converse, gives students the opportunity to design their own sneaks on their website. Whether you prefer Chuck Taylors, All Stars, or Purcells, you can show off your creative spirit in their interactive design studio.

Design Your Own Converse

The ten step process let’s you select everything from the color of the body and lining to the laces, with 26 colors and 22 prints to choose from. With prices starting at just $45, you’ll be styling in your very own custom creation without breaking the bank! And you can rest assured that nobody else at your school will have the same pair of shoes!


All Purpose Backpack

A sturdy, all purpose backpack is essential for students of all ages. Backpacks not only hold your books and homework, but it’s also the perfect place to show off your personality with fun colors and prints. Both functional and fashionable, backpacks are a student’s permanent accessory, so you might as well invest in one that you really love. Whether you’re looking for a simple bag or one with all the bells and whistles, Zappos.com is the place to find the perfect backpack this fall. With more than 650 styles under $50, there is definitely one for everyone!
