Stylish Back-to-School Gear to Elevate Your Classroom Style

The arrival of the end of August is synonymous with one thing: going back to school. While everyone else is flocking to school supplies havens like Staples or Target, we rounded up some of our favorite ways to re-imagine your back-to-school must-haves.

Chic Notebooks and Pens

Amidst a plethora of sleek notebooks and writing utensils in the market, settling for the ordinary and mundane is no longer a school requirement. This year, take cues from the most recent fashion weeks to inspire your purchase decisions. We love monochromatic, color coordinated notebooks and pens, especially environmentally friendly ones. Paired with a matching, sustainable water bottle, your everyday items are transformed into a chic statement. 

Backpacks Reimagined

While everyone else plans to head to class with literal interpretations of back packs, a-la the typical black option from The North Face, we prefer subtler takes on transporting all of your classroom needs that have all of the function of a backpack without sacrificing the style of a bag. If you absolutely need a backpack, however- we do love the functionality of this Dagne Dover backpack. If opting for a leather bag, be sure to spray it with a good water-proofing spray to ensure it doesn’t get damaged by the rain, or swap out for a sturdier material, like canvas, on rainy days. Make sure to plan ahead for the weather in your area by checking the ThreadWeather app to make sure your bag will be perfectly suited to the weather in your area.

Elevated Organizers and Accessories

There’s nothing more satisfying than organizing all of your belongings, especially when the organizers themselves can double a fashion statement! We love this affordable gold stapler and splurge-worthy leather pencil case. For more affordable options, we also recommend browsing through your local HomeGoods for some one-of-a-kind treasures!
