The fall semester is just around the corner, and with it comes back-to-school shopping! Check out CL’s classy weekend staples to add to your wardrobe this year.
1. Boyfriend Jeans
Jeans have always been a weekend staple, but boyfriend jeans are guaranteed to keep you comfortable while chilling out on your days off. Not to mention, they are versatile! Dress them up for a night on the town by rolling up the bottom and rocking a pair of stilettos, or dress them down with a pair of comfy riding boots and a big sweater. Whatever your plans are for the weekend, boyfriend jeans are a go-to.
2. Leather Jacket
This is another perfect item for a cool fall day. A leather jacket goes well with just about anything. It can be worn with skinny jeans for a sleek, rugged look. Or you can pair a leather motorcycle jacket with a lace mini-dress for a sweet and edgy look.
3. Riding Boots
One of the most frequently worn shoes seen on campus for fall is riding boots. There are so many different styles- western, wedge, flat, etc. Create a comfy, warm weekend style with knee-high socks to wear to a football game for a casual look.
4. Short Sleeve Sweatshirt
Any time you hear the word “sweatshirt” you think automatic coziness. While it may seem easiest to throw on a huge sweatshirt with your school’s logo for the weekends, gain style points by layering a cute short sleeve sweatshirt over an oxford button down or a henley top.
5. Ballet Flats
Why wear heels when you don’t have to? There are so many chic ballet flats that are cute and cheap! Give your feet a chance to relax and find a cute pair in bright colors.
6. White T-Shirt
Ask a group of guys what they think a woman looks sexiest in and surprisingly enough, many will say “jeans and a tee”. What better excuse to rock one of our comfiest articles of clothing? A white t-shirt can be dressed up by tucking it into a pair of dark jeans with a skinny belt. Bonus points if you pair it with your leather jacket, and possibly some bonus attention as well!
