They say all good things must come to an end, but why not simply hop from one good thing to another? Rather than fret over the reality of summer’s end, jump eagerly into the first day of school with a new and improved style that might just win you “Best Dressed.”
Below are a few of our favorite looks – straight from student-favorite brands! Mix and match clothing, accessories, shoes, tech and more for a look that’s all your own.

Staring at a screen all day can be harsh on the eyes and affect your sleep. Reduce exposure to harmful blue light and improve your sleep cycle with Lenscrafters’ BlueIQ lenses, which filter out at least 50% of blue light. Incorporate the lenses into eyeglasses or sunglasses from your favorite designers.
An iconic brand for a reason. All you need is a pair of classic Ray-Ban aviators, cat-eyes or retro-vintage Lennon-inspired shades to feel like you’re taking the school year by storm. Feeling bold? Go for an on-trend square or oval shape.
