The first day of anything is a cause for celebration and anxiety. We'd be remiss to say there weren't years where we spent an inordinate amount of time planning our back to school outfits. It's a new year, after all! Starting it off on the right foot puts you in the right frame of mind. And since the streets of New York City and Brooklyn are basically runways in and of themselves, the back to school style here isn't your ordinary homecoming. This is a city bursting with vibrant personalities; it's where all the big fish in their hometown ponds come to become even bigger. And school is, of course, where a solid bit of that education comes along.
So, without further adieu, let's get class started. Aspiring Best Dressed superlatives, this way.
We'd say this is an overall good look! (See what we did there?)
We'll take a McJacket, please! Super size it!
That vintage Penguin is a party in the front AND back.
Nothing bored about those cords.
We want candy, too!
Gwen Stefani goes goth-punk.
Let's be ethereal here: Blush is always and forever going to be in.
Some people prefer deep blue seas, we prefer deep blue pockets.
See? Blue and black DO go well together.
A sensible sweater vest says it best.
A look that means business.
Mirror, mirror in the eyes...
Behold a study in duality: hunter orange and camo pants.
Pattern. Play. All. Day.
Vans are our dream school uniform, too.
Did someone ask to be served a look of sophisticated wit and effortless charm?
