The 40 Best Back To School Accessories

Untitled-1Alrighty guys, as much as I hate to admit it, back to school time has rolled around once again. Personally for me it’s a bit scary, I’m starting my senior year in college – eek! For some, back to school represents a little more quiet time around the house, for others it means entrapment in a classroom and too much time spent on homework, and for the lucky few it represents ¬†the excitement of a new, fresh year. Sad as is it to see summer go, going back to school is still a fun time- you get to see your friends, you might get to be the big shots on campus, and you can finally break out your plaid and get ready for some serious leaf stomping. Back to school is also an important time in terms of possessions. No back to school ensemble is complete without the best backpacks, coolest notebooks, and sparkliest pens. Click on through for forty fabulous back to school accessories. And if you aren’t going back to school, that’s ok too- backpacks are super chic right now, cases shaped like foods are fun, and who doesn’t love a newer, cuter iPhone case?¬†Click through below!


So recently I was chosen to take part in a nice little StyleMint Advertorial for the lovely CollegeFashionista, and it came out today, so I wanted to share it with you all!

Madewell Denim Shirt
La Rok Furry Vest
Citizens of Humanity Jeans

Parsons students have a deep love for fashion, and dressing the part is essential in this school and New York City. They use any opportunity to get dressed up, and rarely come to class in nothing less than their finest pieces and most unique outfits. Needless to say, there is no shortage of glamour. However, the pressure to always look goo can be overwhelming if, like most college students, you’re on a budget. Enter StyleMint T Shirts.

Through StyleMint, students can get T Shirts exclusively designed by Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen, who, apart from being just plain fabulous, are extremely respected and successful designers. Who wouldn’t want a shirt by there two? The Ts are the perfect balance of luxe and casual- the style and materials used make them stand out in an industry swimming with Ts. The shopping experience is an unique as well: a brief style quiz produces pieces and looks just for you, so deciding which T Shirt to get is a snap, even with all the amazing styles available. And what’s better? Every month you get to go back to see your new recommendations. Saving the best news for last- these Ts are only $29.99.

The Ts are perfect for class, because they can be dresses up or down, something students love to do. 9This is especially true at Parsons, where you will see a T Shirt with a sequined skirt and statement necklace in one room, and a T Shirt with slouchy jeans and combat boots in another.) For a perfect class look, take a T and layer with an open button down shirt or cardigan, and a fun furry vest on top. Pair it with some great skinny jeans and a cool heel, or, as an alternative, tall boots. Accessories such as a knit cap or gloves in a fun color like red or purple are perfect for the cold weather, and look fantastic. Putting a StyleMint T Shirt with either jeans, leggings, or printed pants (if you want to take a bit of a fashion risk), a fun statement piece like a fur vest or great necklace, and some comfortable but cute heels, like a wedge or a bootie is a perfect look for classrooms that can go from boiling hot to freezing cold, and is comfortable enough to work in, yet polished enough to look professional. 

So what are you waiting for? Go take that StyleMint quiz now!
And as an added bonus, first time Parsons buyers receive 20% off your purchase when you enter COLLEGE under Discount Code at checkout!
