As Labour Day weekend is fast approaching, we inevitably bid farewell to summer and for many of us, begin our annual back to school prep. Although returning to a busy and academic-filled schedule can be a drag, treating yourself to some back-to-school essentials most certainly is not.
In order to make sure your fashion game is on point this year, we have curated a list of our most loved back to school pieces for this season. With pieces like these, we have no doubt you’ll be eager to show them off in class and around campus!
A chic backpack
A unique and fashion-forward accessory from one of our most beloved brands, Mackage, the Tanner Backpack is the perfect addition to your back-to-school wardrobe. Versatile enough to dual up as a carry-all bag on weekends, there is pretty much nothing you won't love about this bag. Check out a similar style below accessorized during Barcelona Fashion Week!
Flat ankle booties
These booties are the perfect pair of transitional shoes to wear around campus or for a night out. The beauty of Frye boots is that they are the perfect balance of comfort and effortless style. See below for one of our favourite ways to style them! *Available in stores - coming soon to shopvoc.com!
Ripped skinny jeans
September is the perfect time of year to treat yourself to a new pair of denim. This year, we are loving the distressed look. The ripped style is casual enough that you can pair them with your favourite plaid shirt for class, yet can easily be transitioned into a more dressed up look when paired with a blouse for heading to your local campus bar. See the two looks below for inspiration!
A cozy pajama set
Back to school obviously means that some late-night study sessions are bound to ensue. This comfy set makes that notion (dare we say?) almost appealing. An ultra soft waffle-knit PJ set is exactly what you need for chilling in your dorm, or for a movie-night get together with friends. *Available in stores only.
The girls at V.O.C can all agree that their go-to piece for class is a cozy, chunky knit. Right now we are all about the Free People Easy Cable Knit, in-stores at both the Oakville and Liberty Village locations. Pair with your favourite skinnies or leggings, some booties and a plaid scarf.
