The Best of Back to School

Its almost that time of year again and you may or may not be dreading the impending school year. Regardless of your feelings on the actual school part, we know that the one thing everyone looks forward to is back to school shopping. So we’ve put together a list of our “back to school essentials” for you!

Now what would a back to school essentials list be without Herschel ? Whether you need a bag that will only fit a few of the basics or you need something a little more substantial for your laptop and books Herschel’s got you covered.

Back to school unfortunately means we will have to say goodbye to our dear friend summer and say hello to chilly fall days. To combat that pre-school, early morning chill we suggest a light jacket like our Seasons Jacket. A light weight jacket means you won’t have to worry about lugging a heavy coat around from class to class all day and its perfect for layering with your favourite sweaters and jeans.

Speaking of jeans… they are without a doubt the most essential back to school item. Whether you grew 3 inches over the summer or you just got bored of your old ones, jeans are the number one item to put on your list. Our current favourite is distressed denim like our Destruct Boyfriend Jeans or our Brook BF torn jeans, if you ask us the more rips the better!

Comfort is key when it comes to school, which means leave the heels at home and bring on the sneakers! Our current favourites are from People, no need to compromise fashion for comfort with these ones!


Now last, but certainly not least, a statement piece for that long anticipated picture day. Whether its for your yearbook or your student ID that picture is going to stick with you for a long time so you want to make it count! One of our favourite statement pieces right now is the choker necklace, it is an easy way to make sure your photo stands out!
