Back to school must haves

Back to school must haves

Summer’s over.  Bummer right?  Soon you won’t have beaches, road trips, or free summer movies in the park to entertain you.   It’s time to pull your textbook out and get back to school.


You can make your own fun, you just need the right gear. We at FashionEdits pulled together a state-of-the-art arsenal of fashions, tools, and toys that will make the next nine months a breeze. That means a computer, sure, but the modern fashionista student’s life wouldn’t be complete without a camera, a wedge, or a leather backpack, right?


Quirky Prints

The quirkier the better!  Prints that take the Monday Blues away, or to celebrate the start of the weekend!

Faux Leather

Leather has been a major focus on the runways like never before. But real leather can require you to have major bucks on hand it isn’t very practical for a student when having to pay for cafeteria food and books.  Faux leather is even more affordable and can add edge to any outfit.

From Chanel featuring their now popular Graffiti Backpack Bag in their Spring 2014 collection, to Mulberry releasing their own backpack line with British model Cara Delevingne. The backpack has made a triumphant comeback that is certainly not child’s play for the fall 2014 season.  The backpack has graduated to leather, metal details, and quilting.
