“Back to School” Inspired Fashion

You may not be heading back to the classroom this month, but that does not mean you can’t enjoy one of the best parts of the season, which is “back to school” shopping. Everyone loves saving and getting deals. I did some homework and found the best school related trends from plaids, corduroy, oxford shoes and more….in grownup shapes and sizes.
This crisp and classic print makes us want to sharpen up some No.2 pencils, and this button down version is long enough to give a little coverage around the hips, perfect for pairing with leggings or slim cut jeans. Decree Side-Cinch Plaid Shirt, $19.99; JCPenney.com
Try a pop of plaid in sophisticated cream and black. A close fitting pencil skirt looks streamlined and totally chic. Belted Pencil Skirt, $79; Talbots.com
Because you just cannot wear this cozy fabric in spring or summer, corduroy is a fashionable way to usher in the season. Available in purple or olive, this blazer is a stylish way to beat brisk weather when the temperature drops. Charter Club Corduroy Blazer, $60; Macys.com
These boot cut cords come with built in fabric panels that flatten the tummy and lift the rear. Not Your Daughter’s Jeans Tummy Tuck Bootcut Corduroy Stretch Pants, $98; Nordstrom.com
An A-line dress in fine-wale corduroy is the perfect layering piece: Pair it with a fitted turtleneck and chunky tights for a great weekend outfit. Women’s Fine-Wale Cord Shirtdress, $29.50; OldNavy.com
Slip into a pair of smart looking oxfords with a twist, like these classic lace ups with a sexy heel. Steve Madden Vulture Brown Leather High Heel Oxford, $69.50; LuLus.com
A fitted blazer offers a chic way to cover up both day and night. This tweed number has come a long way from your professor’s closet: A fitted silhouette, faux leather tab buckles and epaulettes make it a stylish wardrobe staple. Together Tweed Blazer, prices start at $69; Spiegel.com
