Posted Thursday August 15, 2013 8:17 AM GMT
Back-to-school shopping can be a bit overwhelming. But Kohl’s is about to change all that.
From dorm décor and savvy electronics to A+ accessories and tons of trendy clothing; consider the retailer your one-stop-shop destination for all things campus related.
With the vast array of sartorial options available — like pieces from our fave celeb product lines like LC by Lauren Conrad and the Jennifer Lopez Collection — we thought it’d be wise to pull together a handful of goods sold exclusively in-store and online at Kohls.com to hone in on first.
These items are the core, foundational threads you can build outfits off of all year round! Feast your eyes:
SO Roll-Cuff Button-Front Top, $36: Every gal needs a trusty button-up shirt in her wardrobe. We especially love this option for its polka dot print, which would make an unexpected, yet adorable statement underneath a plain V-neck sweater.
LC Lauren Conrad Denim Vest, $50: A vest is a fantastic layering piece, and is our favorite transitional outerwear piece to take us from summer to fall. Pair it with leggings and a t-shirt for a causal look or layer it with a maxi dress for a more formal appearance.
Candie’s Chambray Lace Back Top, $42: Chambray is the fabric of the moment. It’s casual, yet trendy look makes for effortlessly chic getups time and time again.
SO Plaited Sweater, $36: You’re going to need something comfy and cozy for those mornings when you’re functioning off of four hours of sleep. Slip into this trendy sweater, for a look that won’t scream ‘I just pulled an all-nighter.’
Mudd Palazzo Pants, $40: How fun are these pants?! We’re obsessed. Pair them with a tank and a denim jacket and you’ll seal your stylista status the moment you step onto campus.
Jennifer Lopez Bootcut Jeans, $54: Flared jeans are back, and we couldn’t be more excited. The boho-chic look is subtly stylish, making you look totally on trend without trying too hard.
Jennifer Lopez Solid Pleated Shorts, $44: If you plan on checking out the night life (after studying, of course), invest in a pair of black shorts. They can be worn casually on campus during the day, then worn either alone or with a pair of tights (on chillier nights) for evening outs with your BFFs.
LC Lauren Conrad Solid Leggings, $20: We’ve tried on a lot of leggings in our day, and we can honestly say that these babies are worth every penny. And, at $20 a pop, you could afford to stock up on 2 or more pairs to go with your favorite riding boots.
Mudd Wedge Sneaker, $69.99: Kick your shoe game up a notch with the wedge sneaker. We love this cobalt blue option from Mudd, and think it’ll complement your collegiate apparel perfectly.
SONOMA life + style Suede Ankle Booties, $74.99: Booties are the hottest shoe of the fall season, so make sure you’re well equipped with a chic pair of ankle grazing kicks . We love this style because it closely resembles Rag & Bone’s $495 Harrow Boot.
OUTERWEAR & ACCESSORIES
IZ Byer California Boyfriend Blazer, $58: In our opinion, the boyfriend cut is the way to go. It looks fabulous with some skinny jeans and flats, yet is still appropriate for all your future internship interviews!
Apt. 9 Solid Roll-Tab Utility Jacket, $70: Your fall outerwear arsenal just wouldn’t be complete without an edgy utility jacket. We love how it looks with a plain white tank and some leather leggings—hello, future Homecoming Queen!
You’ll also need a solid everyday handbag. We suggest the Relic Norwood Tote ($88). It’s one you’ll have for multiple semesters. Still on the hunt for a backpack? Opt for Candie's Geometric Backpack ($60). We love the eye-catching tribal print! Lastly, layer up with some arm candy. For under $20, you can adorn yourself with Mudd’s Studded Bracelet!
