If you're headed back to the classroom this fall, you'll want to make a statement by going to school in style. This year, we're going to ditch the skinny jeans and say hello to athleisure, vintage, and comfort. Here are some trendy looks and tips to help you stand out and feel stylish in school this year.
Set Up Your Morning Routine
With school starting up soon, now is the perfect time to set up a new morning routine. Having a morning routine will help you to set the tone for the day, and will help you to start off your school year feeling fresh and productive.
First things first, once you've made the bed, and hit the bathroom, it's now time to start your new routine and get ready for school. If you're used to staying up late and want to reduce the appearance of dark circles around your eyes, apply your favorite color corrector underneath your eyes before applying concealer or foundation. This will leave your skin feeling good and will hide those circles. After applying your makeup, it's now time for mascara. If you want your eyes to really wow your friends this year, consider getting a lash lift to take your school by storm. This will help to leave your lashes looking natural and feeling great. After taking care of your skin, the next step is to pick out your outfit.
Being comfortable in the morning and at school is a must, so grab a pair of cozy socks to keep your feet feeling warm and snug throughout your day. Knee-high socks are in right now, and will go perfect with your favorite pair of sneakers or some tall boots. Or if you'd prefer ankle-length socks, these are a great choice for the varsity look, and will go great with your favorite park of high-tops.
Now it's time for the fun part, picking out your back to school wardrobe!
