Summer’s end brings excitement in many forms, from the return of college football (Go Gamecocks!) to the changing of the leaves. For many, this time of year means back to school prep, whether you’re a teacher, student, or parent. Shopping for a new school wardrobe can be fun, and while we’re all looking forward to boots and sweaters, August and September usually have different plans for us here in the South. Finding stylish pieces to keep you cool while still being comfortable throughout those long school days can be tough, but luckily, my girl Johnna at COAST on Carolina has your perfect solution: a line of basics that are comfortable, affordable, and can merge with everyone’s personal style!
If you’ve followed along for a little while, you know I love a good tee! I love taking such a simple staple piece and being able to style it so many ways while staying comfortable. These tees come in a giant array of colors, are super luxe-soft, and are only $12! The relaxed fit flatters nearly any shape, and these jewel tones perfectly transition into fall. Style these tees with your favorite skinny jean or pixie pant–french tuck the front or knot it up for a little extra flair. And as if these bad boys couldn’t get more perfect, they’re also long enough to be worn with leggings. You’re welcome, college ladies.
Take allll of the amazing elements of those tees and throw them in dress form. Teachers, these will be your lifeline this fall! These versatile maxis allow for comfort and style, and can be dressed up to go from the classroom to happy hour; teachers need lives, too! You can choose from sleeveless or short sleeves, and as we venture into chillier months, throw on one of these button-up cardigans and you are set. As with my tees, I also love to knot up a maxi for a fun take on a classic look! And although they’re only $20 each, the quality of these dresses is unreal! When I find a piece I love, I tend to wear it out, and these maxis have withstood my daily antics, several washings, and still look as good as new. You can’t beat that!
p.s. DID I MENTION POCKETS?!
So whether you’re prepping for this new school year or not, I think it goes without saying that these not-so-basic basics need a place in your fall transitional wardrobe! Find these and so many more at COAST on Carolina in downtown Hartsville and be sure to tag @thehuntforstyle and @coastoncarolina to show us your take on these closet staples! Wishing all you teachers, students, and parents a wonderful school year!
Until next time,
Stay stylish and enjoy the hunt!
