Back To School Fashion Is Hot

Oct 11, 2007
Whether you're 20 or 50, you've probably seen the kids headed back to school; chances are, you've even thought some of them looked pretty darn cute. So how do you pull off the back-to-school fashions of this fall without looking like you're trying to be someone you're not? We've got some ideas on how to play up these ultra-cute and ultra-versatile looks, whether you're headed to the soccer field or the boardroom.

First up, layers. If you've been anywhere near any clothing store in the last two months, you know this is a great look. And really, who hasn't gotten up on a Saturday morning and thrown a long sleeve shirt under a t-shirt once in a while? It's comfortable and gets you through your Saturday morning errands. But what if you want to have the same look in the office? It's simple. Pair a long-sleeved turtleneck made of cashmere and silk, or a fine knit henley with one of this season hottest items, the swing jacket. Many of the swing jackets are coming with 3/4 sleeves, or "bracelet sleeves," as they're being called, so cover that extra skin with an eye-popping color like cobalt or red. Give your black pantsuit a little oomph!

Embrace color this fall season. Soon we will have long winter days filled with heavy grey clouds - why not brighten everyone's day by throwing on a bright red scarf or grabbing a patent-leather red purse on your way out the door? Don't want to go that big? Slip on a pair of your very own ruby red slippers, minus the sequins, and strut your stuff through the office. These look great with that staple black pantsuit that every working professional has in her closet.

Ballet flats are big this season with everyone. And while the kids are sporting them with skinny jeans, the rest of us who can't wear skinny jeans can pair them palazzo pants, jeans of our own, and knit dresses. Really, flats are perfect for just about any occasion.

Do you ever look at the girls coming out of the schools and long for the days when you could rock a baby doll dress with a cute pair of those flats? You can! Baby doll dresses are hard for anyone to pull off without looking totally pregnant, which is not a look anyone wants. However, a shift dress is a great alternative! As a straight dress that is waistless and skims the silhouette, the shift is flattering and modern. You don't need to go super short, and you can wear solid black tights for a uniform look that makes your legs look long and lean. Be sure your dress is cut above the knee and made from a fabric that drapes well, such as velvet, knit, or jersey.

Kids can be cute, and often times they get some of the coolest clothes around. Don't hesitate to steal their style if you can do it, without looking inappropriate.
