File this under Brilliant Inventions: the double-sided earring. By replacing the normal, utilitarian earring back with an aesthetically pleasing one, even the simplest studs become statements.

This ingenious jewelry concept looks great from all angles, and the options are endless. From wrap-around ear jackets to double-sided studs and animals (like the unicorns shown below) there is a style for everyone.

The best part about this trend is it has long-lasting potential. Who wants to go back to boring earring backs after these glamorous 360 versions hit the market?

In today’s “why hasn’t this already happened?” news, WWD is reporting that Britney Spears will soon be launching a lingerie line.

Called The Intimate Britney Spears, the line will include lingerie sets, bustiers, kimonos, and even loungewear, like sweats, shorts, and camis. We are loving how inclusive this collection is: bras will have A to J cup sizing, while bottoms are available in sizes 0 to 28.

Spears also spoke to WWD about the collection:

“Every woman should feel confident and beautiful in everything she puts on. My vision for The Intimate Britney Spears is to create pieces that are sexy, luxurious and comfortable at the same time.”

The Intimate Britney Spears launches September 9, and will be sold at intimatebritneyspears.com in the U.S. and Canada, barenecessities.com, and some specialty boutiques throughout the U.S. and Canada. Prices range from $17 to $79.

Quiz: Which Fall 2014 Trend Should You Incorporate Into Your Back-to-School Look?

It’s almost August, which means many of us will be heading back to school before we know it. Even though the thought of a new semester with new professors and midterms galore may sound frightening, there’s one thing that every college fashionista can get excited about: back-to school-shopping!

After a summer of working and saving up, my money is burning a hole in my pocket, and I’m ready to buy some fall fashion! If you need some ideas for staying trendy while back-to-school shopping, take the quiz below to find out which Fall 2014 runway style you should rock on campus:

Quiz Results!

Below are the results to the quiz. If you haven’t taken it yet, then don’t peek! I’ve created an outfit inspired by each Fall 2014 trend. Scroll down to check them out:

Bright Mixed Colors

Product Information: Skort, Tank, Sunglasses, Purse, Shoes

This outfit is a perfect summer-to-fall transitional look. The bright colors are super young and fun, plus the orange handbag is stylish pick that can be carried throughout fall.

When mixing bright colors together, feel free tone it up or down as much as you’d like. Here, we mixed prints for an extra bold look, but you could also pair the skort with a solid-colored top or vice versa. After all, fashion is about making each trend your own!

Normcore

Product Information: Crop Pants, Blazer, Loafers, Watch, V-Neck

If normcore sounds like a made-up word, that’s because kind of is! A combination of “normal” and “hardcore”, the premise behind this trend is to blend in so much that you stand out. It’s essentially really intense casual wear.

Personally, this outfit is my favorite because it’s super versatile. Whether you’re meeting with your study group or are headed to class, polished jeans and a structured blazer are appropriate for almost anything and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

Cardigan Craze

Back-to-School outfit: cutoffs, crop top, knit cardigan
Product Information: Shorts, Crop Top, Sweater, Boots, Hat

Cozy knits were all over the fall runways. Oversized, head-to-toe, colored and neutral – it was all there! This is another incredibly wearable trend since almost everyone has a trusty cardigan (or five) somewhere in their closet.

This look is ideal for a cold classroom or a late night library study session. Another way to up the high fashion factor? Pair it with sweater tights once the weather gets cooler to really emphasize the knit aspects of the outfit.

Sheer Brilliance

Back-to-School outfit: lace top, sheer panel shorts, sandals
Product Information: Shorts, Top, Cuff, Bag, Shoes, Bralette

Sheer pieces have been spotted in stores for a while now, but really blew up on runway this season. When worn tastefully and in toned-down colors, you can create a look that is sophisticated and collected.

If you’re looking for sheer clothes in stores, make sure everything that needs coverage gets coverage; if the bralette above is a bit risqué for your taste, a cami would look equally as cute underneath the lace top! Also, don’t over-do it with too many accessories. In this case, a sleek tote and gold cuff are all you need for a romantic and stylish ensemble.

What do you think?

What’s on your back-to-school shopping list? Would you wear any of these outfits? Which is your favorite? Let us know what you think in the comments below!

Back-to-School Style: Wardrobe Basics for College Girls

6 Comments

Casual and cute back to school outfits

It’s that time of the year again: back-to-school season. Everyone’s thinking about what clothes to bring to college and how to fit everything in a tiny closet, and this is a recipe for stress and over-packing. However, if you start planning early, your dorm/apartment’s closet can be less crammed than a Forever 21 rack.

In this post, I wanted to go over a few of my must-have college wardrobe staples, as well as my favorite ways to wear each piece. These all-day-everyday basics are the best place to start when you’re considering what to bring to college:

1. All-American Layers

Jeans and a white v-neck are the skeletons of any closet. These are the bare bones needed to support layers, so I always bring multiples with me to school. Also, I can’t live without cardigans, even in the summer.

When you’re walking across campus, comfort is key, and these mint Converse sneakers add an unexpected, pastel touch to any outfit. I love the look of white Converse too, but I’m prone to spilling everything, so I thought this mint hue was a tad safer.

Other college basics I recommend bringing? Dark and light-colored camisoles (mine are from F21) and a watch (tortoiseshell makes me feel like a cool grandma).

2. Better With a Sweater

Back to school fashion sweaters and ankle booties

It may not be sweater weather, but thin, oversized sweaters are an eternal staple in my wardrobe. Speaking of eternity, I have eternal love for neutral ankle boots. I wear these with everything. Just the other day I carved my name plus a drawing of these boots into an oak tree to mark our love.

During summer, I love pairing thin sweaters with white shorts. This look can easily be transferred from summer to fall with black pants, another basic I beseech you to bring with you to college. Black pants help combat against the leggings apocalypse.

3. Lounging Around

Cute college loungewear

Midnight fire alarms, freshman dorm movie parties, and any day in-between calls for snuggly lounge clothes. I’m partial to these gray sweatpants because they have real life, authentic, can-actually-hold-stuff pockets. As part of my master plan, I painted my nails this chic, classic gray (Essie’s Master Plan). My top is actually a minty dolman-style shirt, which is something that can also be worn to class or the gym.

To sum up my back-to-school wardrobe basics packing list: jeans, black pants, white shorts, comfy lounge pants, oversized sweaters, cardigans, a white v-neck shirt, camisoles, ankle boots, easy-to-walk-in sneakers (like Converse), and a watch. Cute sweater-material pillow? Optional.

Your Turn!
