Head Back to Campus in Cool Comfort With These Fall Staples

Back-to-Campus Staples From H&M For You and Your Newly Filled Social Calendar

This school year, dress for every occasion no matter how small. Teaming up with H&M, we’re sharing on-trend pieces to take you from class to dinner to house party.

Heading back to school is exciting every year — but this year, it’s a bonafide celebration. Take advantage of every moment by wearing not only what makes you feel good, but what looks good too. Between running from class to class, hanging with friends, and cheering for your team, it’s these comfortable and cool back-to-campus styles that will carry you through each new adventure with ease.

As usual, we’re turning to H&M for affordable fall pieces that are just as versatile as they are fresh. No matter what you’re up to, the below looks are a no-fail solution to starting the school year off with a (stylish!) bang.

Vest to Impress

From sweater to puffer, vests are surprisingly versatile. In timeless black, this one is not to be missed. Build on the chill vibe with matching relaxed mom jeans and a fresh pair of kicks that will go with everything in your closet. A trend-conscious bucket hat is the cherry on top.

Cardi Party

Once again, cardigans will be all over your feed come fall. We love this one for its soft fabric and classic neckline. Worn alone or with a bralette, a tee, or even a turtleneck, cardigans are the hero pieces your fall wardrobe needs. Styling one with a plaid miniskirt is the epitome of back-to-school fashion. It’s a little preppy, a bit flirty, and just the right amount of cool.

The Soft Side

Keep comfort top of mind with a pair of sweats in a fresh color and fit. High-waisted with an elastic waistband, this pair can be dressed up or down depending on the outing. A matching tee and ultracomfortable slides are perfect companions for a study session or a football game. Toss on some delicate gold jewelry for a polished effect.
