How To Be Cool For School

How To Be Cool For School

Whether you’re starting your first semester at Uni, or heading back to college, the pressure’s on to start the year right!

Get your style inspo from stars of the big (and little) screen, from the 80s classic Breakfast Club, to the one-season wonder Freaks and Geeks.

We’ve done you a solid by spending hours in front of the TV all in the name of research, you’re welcome…



Breakfast Club

We don’t condone landing yourself in detention, but we do condone Molly Ringwald’s nan-approved look. From carpet-esque paisleys to dandelion prints across blouses and midi dresses.



Jumpsuit: £26.00


Freaks and Geeks

We know you’re not a freak or a geek, but the utility styling in Judd Apatow’s one-season wonder is bang on trend. Think jumpsuits, boiler suits, khaki, flared trousers and you’ll get the vibe.

Jumpsuit: £28.00



Before you say anything, we know, obvious right? But how could we put together a legit blog about back to school looks without giving this classic a mention.

Checks, checks and checks… need we say any more?

Don’t judge Skins by the MTV reboot! It’s all about series one and all the teen mischief you can manage in one sitting. Channel the 00s with hooped earrings and DMs (standard), mustard hues and most importantly, layers.

Remember to tone down the sometimes violent pattern clashing, the look shouldn’t be ‘everything I found on the floor’.

The Carrie Diaries

Loved Sex and the City? Check out the prequel and Carrie 2.0’s eclectic 80s vibes.

Leopard prints strike exactly the right chord, while cardigans make a comeback as the ultimate layering item for this ultimately glossy look.
