Back To School: College Essentials

One of the most frequent requests that I get from my younger clients is wanting help finding the perfect “back to school” wardrobe. This task seems even more daunting when you’re first going from high school to college and have no idea what to buy to upgrade your wardrobe.

I asked my current summer intern, Kristie, to put together a montage of the things she thinks are necessary for the college life & also model some of her own favorite wardrobe staples! Hopefully this can help you or your daughter on their quest to find the perfect BTS looks 😉
