Ready, set, sharpen your pencils!

We consider the first day back to school a fresh start—not only to kick off the next year of your education but also as an opportunity to reinvent your personal style. While many of us spend hours (or days) planning the perfect outfit for the big day, accessories are just as important.

In preparation for the big day, we rounded up everything you’ll need for your first day back while keeping your style vibe in mind. From the season's best backpacks and bags to some of the coolest and most unique school supplies (unicorn tape dispenser, anyone?) and tech ever, we put together the ultimate back-to-school shopping guide to keep your style consistent, beyond your first day.
