Back to school shopping was one of the most exciting times of the summer. Exciting if I found what I was looking for, but if I didn’t see the style of clothing I wanted to achieve my overall look, I set off visit yet another store. How convenient it is now that we have the internet! We can look up styles on social media and also purchase items online without the hassle of waiting in line at the store. But, what if you haven’t figured out your signature look just yet? That’s okay, today’s blog post will walk you through some fun ideas for this school year. I’m teaming up with Barely Xtensions to talk about reinventing your style!
2019 Back to School Styles
Look Stylish, Comfortable & Confident As You Hit the Classroom
ATLANTA (Aug. 26, 2019) – According to a recent report released by Deloitte, a record $27.8B will be spent on back-to-school shopping this year. That’s is an average of $519 per student! Each year, shopping surges in late July and early August, accounting for 62% of $17.3B of all Back to School spending. By these numbers, it is easy to say that students want to look their best when they hit the classroom this fall. And parents are right in step with this trend.
“Actually, girls want to look cute and stylish for back-to-school season, and the guys want to look great,” says Nadine Mullings, Brand & Product Development Director at Barely Xtensions. “Whether students are looking to enhance their current look or completely re-invent their style, this is the perfect time of year to do it.
“I like to tell back-to-school students to have fun with fashion, accessories, makeup and hair. Most importantly, look for smart ways to feel comfortable and confident as you start this new school year!”
So, with Back-to-School in mind, here are some quick beauty tips for the new year:
Layered and Loose.
Comfort and style can be achieved with this trend.
Oversized jeans cinched at the waist with a belt and a tucked-in shirt make a fashion statement. Add a bow ponytail, sassy side braid or a front twist bun to complete the look. It’s easy, it’s casual, it’s fun and most of all: it works!
Or you can rock along, boho skirt layered with a cozy t-shirt, fringed poncho or soft button-down shirt. Add long earrings, layers of necklaces and an armful of colorful bangles for a comfy, yet cute ensemble.
Romance is back in the air, especially with the addition of dresses, necklines, puffy sleeves and flowing hair!
Wear these dreamy styles with casual, loose waves to look like a modern day princess or Game of Thrones siren. Then add volume and play with color by wearing hair extensions by Barely Xtensions—they’re so cute and natural that no one will ever know!
With new products like the Volcanic Lava Ceramic Pro Spin N Curl, there are plenty of ways to get the rippled cascade of swirls that are perfect and sweet. Finish your stylish look off with soft pink lipstick or gloss and natural, rosy blush.
Grab your favorite band t-shirt, add biker or jean shorts, black jeans and combat boots and you’ve got a rocking look.
Want to go full-on rocker? Add drama with a hair gloss treatment, color spray, or bold new color. If you want the look without the commitment, blend in a few color hair extensions to get a colorful look without ever touching a drop of dye. Add black or dark grey eyeliner or a bright red lipstick to become totally rocker-chic.
Lace up and Look Out.
Getting ready for school, work or the big game is the same — lace up and look out. This year, laces are in! Embrace this trend in a variety of ways. Wear cute jeans with lace-up details up the legs. Also, try t-shirts, tunics or bodysuits that lace up at the neckline or down the sides.
Tall boots that lace to the knee are a renaissance look that’s appropriate (and adorable) for the classroom, and they’re perfect transition pieces for fall. Finally, grab a colorful ribbon or cord to weave through a low ponytail for a darling laced-up look that’s totally on-trend.
Textured and Lectured.
Sadly, the days at the beach are being traded in for hours in the classroom, but you can hold on to that summer look for a bit longer. Even if your hair is pin-straight, create beachy waves using tools like The Bed Head Swerve and Curve Waver & Wand.
This “magic wand” gives you a styling advantage and you will look like you’ve had a carefree day hanging on the shore by creating natural-looking beachy waves. Finish this style with a blast of sea-salt spray and/or texturizing spray to add some texture and volume. Or use your favorite hair spray to keep the look from fading throughout the day.
