It’s that time of year again! As September approaches, it’s time to start getting ready for back-to-school (or for others, back-to-work). Though we’ll miss those breezy summer days, the start of September feels like the perfect time for a fresh start. So whether you’re prepping your little one for the classroom, heading off to college, or simply wanting to update your work wardrobe, here are some back-to-school and back-to-work essentials for any age (and budget!).
Big Bag Energy
Back-to-school and work season wouldn’t feel complete without a new bag. Though microbags are still going strong trend-wise, XL picks and chic carryalls are making a comeback and they’re the perfect pick for carrying all your essentials to work and school. And let’s not forget about the beloved backpack—with various styles and sizes to choose from, it’s fitting for both students and workers alike.
Back to (Fall) Beauty
As seasons change, so should your skincare. With cooler temperatures around the corner, now’s the time to update your skin routine accordingly. Try switching out your lightweight summer moisturizers for something thicker and more hydrating and add in a Vitamin C serum to help repair any summer skin damage. And don’t forget to continue using SPF!
With sustainability being top of mind, it’s now more important than ever to be as waste-free as possible. Luckily, there are plenty of great picks for litterless lunches—from bento boxes and lunch bags to water bottles and multi-use cutlery, there are a plethora of options to suit any style.
As exciting as it is to head off to college or university, it’s also a nerve-racking experience, especially if it’s your first time living away from home. One way to combat the freshman blues is to create your own personal sanctuary in your dorm. These picks will help you maximize your space, minimize clutter, and design a space that is uniquely you.
This season, take the guesswork out of daily dressing by curating a collection of wardrobe classics. Wardrobe staples like chic trousers, crisp dress shirts, polished blazers, and well-tailored coats are the perfect items to build a capsule wardrobe that will keep you looking effortlessly stylish all season long.
Need that perfect send-off gift for the young adult going off to college or university? Consider our E-gift cards. They’re a fun way to show the freshman in your life that you’re thinking of them and you can even send them some words of wisdom with the addition of a personalized message or video.
Whether you’re prepping for school or work, we hope you enter this new season feeling revitalized and refreshed with these picks —you deserve it.
