Top Back to School Fashion Trends 2018


September is always an exciting time. School is starting again, we’re feeling rejuvenated from the summer, the weather is still beautiful, and the pumpkin-spice-everything is in full swing. It's almost comforting to know that we'll be seeing our friends again in school and back into our daily routine.

With August very steadily coming to a close, we want to share some back to school fashion trends to help you create a few eye-catching looks. Whether you're in a seminar or in your school halls, with these pieces you’ll definitely be able to switch up your look and wear them several times throughout the school year.

White Out

Rush out to your early morning class with ease and style in these white slip-on vans. We love the all white trend for fall and winter and these perforated leather vans are both cute and comfortable. Don’t be scared to sport these bad boys throughout the winter too, they’re made for cold and wet weather!


Back to School Classics

This would not be a back to school fashion guide without a Clueless reference. Channel your inner Cher Horowitz with a yellow plaid mini dress this year. Dress it down with a solid t-shirt and your favourite platform shoes. Now all you need is a dreamy Paul Rudd.


Athleisure is a Thing

Yes, this has been trending for a while and we hope it never goes out of style. Some days you just want to put in minimal effort in the morning—we totally understand. Thankfully, with the inspo of celebrities and catwalks alike, you can still look put together in a matching tracksuit. Pretty Little Thing has got you covered with these side stripe joggers. Choose a colour and find its matching hoodie.


Cycle to School

It’s definitely one of the cutest, yet easy and casual looks right now. Behold…the black biker shorts. Wear an oversized T-shirt or a flannel shirt long enough to cover your “assets” and throw on some combat boots. This just might be the perfect mix of fun and edgy.


Not-so-ugly Sneakers

We are loving the “ugly sneaker” trend, and these Adidas Falcons are a more appealing version for a back to school wardrobe (as seen on Kylie Jenner’s Instagram this month!). They’re available in black and light grey tones, so you can choose a colour according to your personal style.


Poppin’ Pants

Add a pop of colour to a neutral top with these striped mustard pants from Zara. You’ll stay cool and comfortable. Also, if you’re into beauty, you can create some amazing fall makeup looks to compliment the warm tones.


Denim Forever

We all have our favourite jeans—and denim everything is all the rage right now (hello, Canadian tux!). Why not add a fun twist to this trend with this orange denim jacket? It will compliment your summer tan and have you ready for pumpkin patch season at the same time.
