Back to School: The Quintessential Essentials

The Wide Leg Pant
You may want to still pack your skinny jeans, but don't forget to buy a pair of wide leg pants at your favorite retailer. See by Chloe has a retro inspired "classic wide leg flare jean," which has an amazing lengthening and slimming effect. For a dressier look, Theory has a many wide leg options this season.

The Open Front Cardigan
Perfect for walking around campus or for those cool fall nights, the open front cardigan is a necessary staple in any lady's wardrobe. Even though most people opt for the black or the gray, this red "cozy cardigan" by DKNY is made out of silk and cashmere. Luxurious.

The Fitted Blazer
The fitted blazer is the epitome of prep school chic. It makes you look elegant and put together without all of the fuss and pressure of assembling the ultimate outfit. Rugby by Ralph Lauren perfected the craft of the blazer.

The Full Skirt
This classic piece is making a comeback and it's ready to be in your closet. Combine with colors or florals like this skirt by Aqua.

The Oversized Bag
Every girl needs arm candy. Necessary for carrying books, a laptop, makeup and magazines (sometimes all at once), an oversized bag is a must-have! My current favorite is Botkier's Large Monica Satchel in black.

Your Boyfriend's White Shirt
Simply take from his closet. If you're single and fabulous, fake the look by buying a "His White Shirt" from JCrew.
