Sigh, we wish we were sporting a bright pink Celine bag and a Versace bracelet instead of a broken JanSport and a rubber band in our student days.

Troy William Harris Jr., student at Syracuse University

There's no doubt that bow ties are cool, and we've never seen one quite like this number from Collar Candy. Plus, the Kreemo buttons and a jean jacket help keep it all casual.

We love how the ornateness of this ring from Nordstrom shines against the simpler silver accessories.
