You’ll see anything and everything when it comes to fall campus style—sweatpants, oversized sorority tees, fitted blazers, high heels, and the premature-parka-wearer to name a few. The line between cute and casual is a fine one to walk, but it’s exactly where you want to be when it comes to looking chic (and feeling comfy) during your lectures, library sessions, and cross-campus treks. Below we’ve rounded up all the back-to-school outfit inspo you’ll ever need.

Opt for fun accent pieces, like these cow-print booties

Swap your heels for a pair of trendy sandals 

Trust me—absolutely no one whose been on campus before will be wearing any footwear remotely related to high heels. Instead, style your favorite denim skirt, jeggings, or maxi with these modern, double wide-strap sandals for style and cross-campus comfort.
