Your Sustainable Guide for Back to School
Dust off that backpack, reopen those notebooks, sharpen your pencils, and set your alarm- it’s time for a new school year to begin! Between running through the endless list of things to do, figuring out where your classes are, and begging your parents to not to talk to everyone in your dorm hall, we welcome a new version of you. Each school year is a chance to reinvent yourself from your studies to your style. Our summer may be closing, but your new fashion era is just beginning.
At Aequem, we know how to work a scene- whether that be the fashion week streets or your own university quad. Here are our best back to school looks that will make you wish the first day of classes were here already:
This look takes the classic schoolgirl uniform to an edgy, confident look. She is the new era of education, spinning a traditional school plaid into a powerful look overflowing with charisma. The Caro Skirt in Organic Cotton is dressed down by the Women’s Navy T-shirt in Tencel to create a hip balance between studious attire and a statement look, finishing the class outfit with a chunky shoe livened by Dotty Socks.
Our functional femme knows the perfect balance between comfort and function. Our Skagen Jumpsuit in Organic Cotton gives her the movement and breathability she needs for attending lectures and studying in the library, but keeps her trendy and bold at the same time. She keeps the jumpsuit style classic by wearing the Blank Boxy Women’s T-shirt in White, but glams the look with the Stacey Necklace.
The modern classic makes studying, taking notes, and running through campus look beautiful. What, like it’s hard? The 100% Linen Dress in Gray gives her an elevated, comfortable look that can last throughout the entire day. Her paired Grey Shadbush Sandals and Sia Shopper Tote in Black maintain her elegance and are perfect functional pieces for a girl on the go.
She’s studious, bright, and a force to be reckoned with. She’s electric! This bold look brightens can brighten any dull university classroom and provides an exciting monotone style of electric blue that is sure to catch any eye. Her Upcycled Bomber Jacket is her essential statement piece that is unparalleled. The Asymmetric Minimal Skirt compliments her jacket with a softer blue to dramatize and give depth to the look. Underneath, she wears the Beauté Unisex Organic Cotton T-shirt to keep her boldness casual and add a complimentary red hue to her electric blue, all while screaming exactly what she is- a beauty.
This is the solution for those late nights that turn into early mornings. When you just can’t keep hitting snooze on the alarm clock but refuse to compromise your style for a few extra minutes of sleep. The laidback lux look pairs the Long Cardigan Dress in Beige with the Stacey Hoops to make sure that the effortless prep translates as effortless elegance. Running late? Throw all your things into the James Bag, an incredibly chic backpack, and appear ready as ever to class.
Our old school guy rocks any campus with his clean-cut look. The Men’s Cariki White Organic Cotton T-shirt pairs with the Summit Beanie in Inca to create a classic, casual look that always looks good despite the weather, class schedule, or time he went to bed last night. To finish his look and transition in style, he throws on the Chore Denim Jacket in White.
The minimalist chic girl can work a look out of the simplest items. Sustainability is sexy. The Piret White Cami Top in Organic Silk elevates the Wide Linen Pants Agota, creating a timeless look of the highest standard and attractiveness. Her Dot Earrings complete the look that is minimal to the core, yet oozing with sophistication.
This style guide is sure to keep you top of the class and a face known all around university- an A+ all around. Happy Studying!
