Style, Decor & More: Back-To-School Styling Tips To Maximize Your Wardrobe

Back-To-School Styling Tips To Maximize Your Wardrobe

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post for Kohl's and Candie's. All opinions are 100% my own.  

Summer always seems to fly by and before you know it, back-to-school season is upon us and it is time to prepare for the start of another school year. And while some teens might get a little anxious at the thought of returning to school and homework, my daughter finds she feels better when she goes shopping for back-to-school clothes.



Clothes shopping is a perfect way to spend quality time together, have a little mother-daughter bonding time, and calm any back-to-school jitters. My daughter and I like shopping at Kohl's. I love to score a great deal and Kohl's rewards, coupons, and Kohl's Cash help me to maximize my savings. My daughter loves Kohl's because she is a fan of Candie's. Candie's is a young women's clothing and accessories brand that began in 1981 and soared to popularity with their high-heeled wood bottom slide. Back in the '80s, every girl in my high school owned a pair of bell-bottom jeans and Candie's iconic shoes - including me! So, when I see my daughter wearing Candie's fashion pieces, it brings back fond memories and makes me smile. 

The Candie's collection has a variety of super smart and playful pieces that allow you to create your own style vibe for work, school, or play. To inspire you, Kristina is sharing easy-to-wear outfits featuring stylish and affordable pieces from the Candie's collection at Kohl's, along with our fashion tips to maximize your wardrobe.



Dressing for comfort doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style, especially with this season's beautiful blouses. Candie's lightweight, colorful blouses offer incredible versatility for your back-to-school wardrobe. Style blouses untucked (above), belted or knotted (below) to fit your mood. As temperatures cool, style blouses beneath sweaters, cardigans, and jackets for added interest and a polished look.
  

Don't pack away those summer dresses. Transition spring-like dresses into autumn with super easy layering. Wear a duster cardigan, oversized denim jacket, or black pleather jacket over spring-like dresses and switch out shoes with a pair of Chelsea boots. The best part is you can wear any shoes with this dress (sneakers, booties, sandals, etc.) and it's guaranteed to look good.



Take a walk on the wild side. Animal prints are fashion's new neutral, and the endless patterns remain at the forefront on fashion runways around the world. Animal prints can be worn with other prints for a funky look or worn with neutrals for chic-looking style. The super versatile prints add a little fun to my daughter's back-to-school outfits.


Show off your fun side wearing bright colors from season to season! When temps turn chilly, once again, it's all about layering. Distressed jeans, sweaters, and oversized jackets will transition this look well into fall. 

  
Having a bad hair day? Throw on a bright-colored blouse and sweep your hair into a messy bun. You'll look put together and ready to rock your look!


S-C-O-R-E! Are you ready to save on Candie's apparel and all of your back to school purchases? Don't miss Kohl's awesome back to school offer and receive $10 off your purchase of $50 or more! But hurry, the sale is running through August 18th!

Have fun shopping and enjoy the tons of compliments you'll get on your super chic style!
