The Coat

Suede is a big fashion news story for fall and it makes the perfect partner for your fall jacket balancing both practicality and style. A suede trench always looks chic but we have a soft spot for this utilitarian offering from Via Spiga. With more than a little military influence and cute leather detailing, it is sure to have you standing out on campus.

The Backpack

Backpacks are the style success story of recent years. Season after season, designers have let their imaginations run wild and they now come in a dizzying range of shapes, colors and textures. Your backpack should not only be sturdy enough to toss in all your books but also look amazing. This leather satchel backpack from The Sak offers a fun nod to the vintage school bag and is tough enough to take whatever school life throws at it.

The Sweatshirt

On cool fall mornings, a cute sweatshirt can offer the perfect throw on and go look. Oversized styles that draw on 90s influences remain a huge trend and a distinctive logo can set you apart from the crowd. This Wildfox Star Tunic Sweatshirt has an effortless slouchy cool that looks great with jeans or skinny tailoring. Throw it over a shirt for a relaxed preppy vibe.

The Sneakers

Sneakers are no longer just for the running track. They are part of an ever-growing athleisure trend that has seen more and more sportswear crossover into mainstream fashion. They are also a great practical choice for school - offering ultimate comfort even after a long day of classes. Choose sneakers that reflect your unique style by switching up traditional fabric or colour choices. We think these unique standard issue sneakers from rag & bone hit all the right style notes.


The Jeans

Every school wardrobe should include a great pair of jeans and we are well beyond the time when skinnies ruled supreme. From the boyfriend to the flare, the denim possibilities are endless. These Hudson Signature Bootcut Jeans offer easy everyday style and look equally great with a flat or heels. A dark, classic wash gives them a timeless edge– these will be a wardrobe essential for years to come.
