As much as we all hate to face it, summer is almost at an end, which means the start of a new school year, new classes, new teachers and best of all, updated clothes, shoes and bags!
I loved and hated going back to school when I was younger. The latter reason was because, at that time, there seemed to be this weird belief in the fashion industry that if you were a curvy girl you wanted to look like a 45-year-old woman who dressed for a very dull office environment. I skillfully dodged cameras most of my middle and high school career unless I was wearing something I had designed and made myself. Thankfully today we have great designers who know that curves come on women of all ages and lifestyles. And with that, they bring us young, fun and funky pieces that hug and flatter those beautiful curves this fall.
What are some of the hottest trends for back to school this year? Trendy jeans in skinny and boot cuts, tunics in soft fabrics that feel as amazing as they look, and hi-lo hem dresses that can be dressed up or down in a variety of ways. Furthermore, we’ve got updated plaid button-downs (in fabrics other than flannel!), rompers, cardigans and, of course, basic tees in silky-smooth cottons. Mix these with great outerwear in warm fall colors, on-trend boots, and a stylish alternative to the traditional backpack. That’s it — you’re ready for a great school year!
