Steph’s Style Picks: Back-to-School

Tuesday, August 25, 2009


    Make a statement this back-to-school season with one great outfit that you can wear as a complete look or as separates.

    Start this look off with trendy boyfriend jeans. These ones have a low rise and are loose fit. Top with a flowy and detailed blouse to add a little bit of femininity. Accessorize with a flirty charm bracelet.

    It’s not quite fall yet so mixing summer pieces and warmer staples is key. Pull on this leather jacket for cooler nights. The soft, black leather and structured form are classic.

    September is the month when you can officially pull the boots back out. These grey booties have great zipper detailing and good height.

    No back-to-school outfit would be complete without the latest in high and low-tech gear. The Palm Centro is the smallest and lightest smartphone from Palm. It is equipped with a camera, email and text messaging capabilities, and a Facebook application. Jot down notes in these cute 100 percent post-consumer waste recycled notebooks. They are printed with vegetable or soy based ink in a wind powdered Canadian print shop. Highlight with eco friendly fluorescent highlighters made with FSC certified wood. They won’t dry out!

    Pack these supplies up in a cute, coloured tote. It adds a pop of fun!
