Shopping for back to school wardrobes can be quite the tall order. If you’re anything like us, you plan out your first-day outfit to a T, PLUS try to stock up on a solid selection of basics, PLUS pick up the year’s top back to school trends, all while staying under budget. Geez – say that five times fast. To help you out, we’ve put together a few of our favorite looks of the year, all crafted affordably with finds from Buffalo Exchange. Whether worrying about your GPA is (thankfully) a thing of the past or you’re still trucking your way through school, these looks are perfect for fall!
Camouflage has been on the radar all summer long, but it’s now available in a refreshing array of colors, including pink, fluorescent yellow and orange. Perhaps surprisingly, this is one of the more versatile back to school trends – if you want to dabble with camo, pick up a tee, hat or bag with the print. Otherwise, go for the most popular camo item, by far: a baggy, army-style pant. Pair these with crop tops, graphic tees, band tees or mesh.
New Takes on Denim
When we think of back to school shopping, we think of the hunt for the perfect jeans. There’s nothing more classic than denim for fall, but you don’t have to stick to just jeans and a tee! Interesting new back to school trends in denim are available this year: think frayed hems and distressing, embroidery, button-front skirts, overalls, jumpsuits and denim jackets for a full Americana look. Denim looks especially good when paired with bandanas or covered with patches and pins.
What happens when you’re three weeks into the toughest schedule of your academic career and you just want to be comfy? Enter athleisure! Layer running tights with shorts, technical jackets in neutral colors, sneakers and classic sports labels like Champion, Adidas and Nike. This is definitely the most functional of all back to school trends. Not only will you look put-together and cute but you’ll be ready to run to class at any moment. Not that you ever hit the snooze button, but, you know, just in case…
To keep your back to school shopping even more on budget, clean out your closet and bring it along with you when stop by your local Buffalo Exchange. You can put the trade towards new-to-you fall pieces or take the cash to reimburse yourself for textbooks. Either way, stop in soon – we’re stocking up on all our favorite back to school trends!
