Hey, everyone! Hope you guys liked my first Back to School look (see it here!) Here’s another cool look for you all to try! Hope you like it!
I don’t know about you guys, but I have a ton of athletic shorts that I bought for camp but just don’t use during the school year. Fortunately, athletic clothing can look cool and urban if worn correctly. To make this outfit perfect for the halls and not gym class, I’d stick to a pair of the basic black and white shorts so that they look fashion-y, not overdone.
To keep this look fresh and fashion-y, I would pair the shorts with a cool, loose fitting printed tank. It give the outfit some color and edge, and keeps the ensemble from looking too athletic or plain. I like something with a low back (which I then layer over a tank– something with lace is super cool!) and a stand-out color like red or purple. Try to avoid black or white to keep the outfit from looking too matchy matchy.
To keep this outfit looking edgy (but not athletic), I would stick to a pair of basic Converse high tops or Vans. It gives the ensemble an added cool factor and keeps the outfit from getting too matchy matchy.
Accessories are what are really going to take this outfit from athletic and boring to urban and fun. To keep the vibe playful and cool, add a sweet pair of sunglasses to add a hint of color and memories of summer. Keep the edgy vibe going with an awesome choker and a long layered necklace. Try to keep all the jewelry in the same metal color to prevent the outfit from looking costume-y. Throw on some quick stud earrings, some friendship bracelets and a few cute rings and you’re all ready to head out the door. Simple and cool!
