It’s Back to School season! Not only for you, but also for me. As explained earlier in my ’20 Facts About Me’ post, I am enrolling in a master in Fashion Marketing – so excited about all the things I am going to learn OTHER than How To Write A Good Memoire.
Homework stories aside, I thought it would be fun to celebrate this new season (and start) with two special ‘I’m-getting-back-to-school-after-years’ look ideas. Which, of course, you can still refer to if you didn’t press pause on your education.
Having experienced high school in Japan, I used to wear a uniform. I didn’t really like it at the time because it was the only thing I was ever allowed to wear but today, out of its primary context, it has become a stylish piece that I was so happy to incorporate into my wardrobe. It’s stylish, classy, humble, and fucking warm I swear (I mean we wore it during snowy winter). For all the ladies out there who had a uniform a few years ago, my advice would be the following: go get it back right now and work it baby.
Because summer heat is sort of over in France, I released the high-necks. Black is safe and black is hot this season. This tight high-neck top is my favorite when it comes to practical, Parisienne-kinda fashion. In order to minimize the monotonous ambiance of the look, consider adding a piece of statement jewelry, like this necklace from Mirina Collections. Mirina Collections is an accessory brand based in Manhattan, New York. Their wide collection includes a series of necklaces, from modern to more classic designs, to bold and statement pieces. I particularly loved this Roman Necklace for its classic yet contemporary mood. The crystal tears make me feel like a modern-time princess.

Every look needs a wrap-up, and here it comes in the form of leather. Real leather on my feet, animal-cruelty-free leather on my arm. The boots are from Topshop, it’s last year’s collection. This roomy bag is from my favorite label… you can have a guess. Yes, you’re right, it’s Flatiron again. I just LOVE the space and how luxe it looks. It just makes the whole outfit a little more ‘mature’, in the good meaning of ‘mature’, like not childish. I took it on my first day of school and I gotta admit it was just perfect to carry all my papers and essentials.
This second look opposes the first – in terms of shape and color – yet talks about elegance as well. We’re thinking white here, with a little black to balance the whole look – and a little red for passion. I admit that white can be really hard to wear, especially for school where you go by bus only to sit on strangers’ chairs. But this piece does make a statement, doesn’t it? I fell in love at first sight with this long blouse by COS and I truly want to wear it every single day of my life (but I can’t for previously stated reasons.)
Because white makes the best of marriages with black, I paired it with my favorite black pants by UNIQLO. And a pair of high heeled low boots that give a little Texas mood. I always feel like a baddass when wearing them. The metallic heel adds a little modernism to the cowboyish print. But the key-piece to this other back-to-school look is the backpack. Flatiron again, I might say. It’s SLEEK, it’s roomy, it’s IVORY, it’s beautiful, and it’s even secretive as it boasts a super-secret opening system that only the lucky owners know about (you should see my friends trying to open it). I love taking it to school, especially when I am packing my notebook for my 3D classes, it allows me to safely carry my essentials.
