Going back to school is usually both exciting and overwhelming, and this year, things are going to be even more hectic than they have been previous years. School may look different this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be fashionable! Here are five essential clothing items you need to buy during the back-to-school season!

Throw-on Cardigans

If you aren’t doing virtual school and are going to actually be in school classrooms, a throw-on cardigan is a must. It’s still hot in August, so most students come in clothes made for hot weather and soon remember how freezing the school can be. It’s too hot for sweaters, but too cold for short-sleeves! That’s why I always recommend bringing a cardigan or jacket that you can just slip on when you enter the building and can always take off when you leave. It’s a foolproof plan!

Hair Clips 

Most girls have plenty of hair ties and scrunchies and definitely understand the importance of being able to put your hair up when it’s in the way. However, sometimes you may want something with a little more flair. Hair clips can be used if you just want to push the hair out of your face, or they can be used to bring some pop to your outfit! Not only are they cute, they also serve a purpose. Amazon offers a large selection of hair clips in both gold and silver, so get yours before school starts!

Plain White Sneakers

You can never go wrong with a pair of simple white sneakers. These shoes can go with every outfit! Wearing a nice top and jeans? Slap on some white sneakers. Feel like dressing comfortably but still want to look put-together? Slap on some white sneakers. White sneakers can be used in both warm and cold months for almost any occasion. Additionally, there are so many variations of white sneakers at different price ranges that you are bound to find a pair that suit you. Nike, Adidas, and almost every large shoe brand sells their own version of white sneakers available on their websites, so hop online and grab your pair today!

Hoop Earrings

I’ve talked about hair clips, but the real statement piece is a good pair of hoop earrings. Big or small, thick or thin, hoop earrings bring spice and color to the simplest of outfits. Hoop earrings can be worn with almost every variation of clothing choice, ranging from a nice dress to a top and jeans to even comfort clothes. This specific type of earring is great for showing your own personal style while also not being so dramatic that it ends up distracting you and others from learning. Making sure they don’t get snagged in your hair is the only problem I warn you of! Once again, Amazon has quite a few options for hoop earrings, some of which will arrive in just two days!

Black Leggings

Last but not least, a pair of classic black leggings are a must when planning to go back to school. These will carry you throughout the entire school year, global pandemic and all! You can wear any top you like with black leggings, from a workout tank to a regular old T-shirt. If you will attend your real school, black leggings are a go-to clothing item when you just want to be comfy throughout the day. If you end up taking online school, black leggings are perfect to lounge in when you have to sit behind a computer screen all day. They even extend their purpose beyond school! You can wear them when you work out, go for a jog, or do small things around the house. If you treat your leggings well and try not to stretch them out too much, they’ll last you quite a while! You can find a pair of black leggings anywhere, but I especially like the ones I bought from Target
