Going back to school, or gearing up for college or uni and – *gulp* – haven’t started on the prep yet? Don’t break your chill, girl – we’ve got your classroom comeback covered. From A+ tote bags and backpacks to swish-as stationery, here are the new term essentials that you need to make the style grade. Get ready to geek out.
Whether you’re starting out at sixth form, college or uni, or just want to shake up the new semester, a tote bag will score top marks all round. Need proof? Check out this sleek black style – it’s spacious enough for all your term-time must-haves (laptop, textbooks, pencil case – check), while its gold hoop detailing will keep you looking stylish both on *and* off campus. Match it up with shiny black flats (so right with skinny jeans), adding a pop of colour with printed stationery.

Wanna pull off preppy style? A cool black satchel is the way to go – just make it look modern with bug-embellished slipper shoes (an AW17 must-have, FYI) and gold hair clips for all the glam-girl feels. If pow-wow prints are more your vibe, pick up a floral-print tote with matching extras, letting it stand out with navy pointed flats. Heart-eyes alert.
Too Cool For School
If the thought of swapping your summer garms for school uniform is almost too much to take (we’re here for you, babes), then a bold ‘lil backpack is the best way to put your own stamp on your style – without breaking the rules. Starting the new school year with a bang, this paint-splattered backpack is covered in punchy patches that’ll stand out against that regulation blazer, while its navy base colour is sure to keep you out of detention. To keep it co-ordinated (you are at school, after all), get your hands on the matching stationery and accessories.

If your school’s a little more chill, pick up this London-print backpack, featuring cool street signs and slogans.
