Summer is coming to a close, and that means school is right around the corner. But, going back doesn't have to be a hassle. Especially, if you’re setting off to business or law school, our back to school style guide is exactly what you’ve been looking for. With student loans piling up and textbook costs at an all-time high, looking good on a budget is the back to school style of the year.

Back to College

Going back to college after a summer of relaxation can often be stressful. My best solution is a little bit of retail therapy, but on a budget of course. If you love to shop online and love a deal, I suggest downloading Honey, a Google Chrome extension that will automatically apply the best coupon to your order. Since I’ve downloaded it, I’ve saved over $200. It’s definitely worth looking into if you shop online, especially at Macy’s, Target, or Lord and Taylor.

In terms of what to wear this coming semester, the layered look is a classic staple that will never go out of fashion. As the days get cooler, layer a t-shirt, a sweatshirt, with a light jacket to create the ultimate in university versatility. It’s the ultimate way to show off your college pride as well, wear your school’s colors and a neutral colored jacket and you’ll be sure to rock any party.
