Shopbop's Elle Strauss Dishes On Her 10 College Staples

School is well underway, and if you're feeling underprepared for the new semester (you knew you should have brushed up on your Lacan this summer!), you're not alone. But if it's your closet that's more lacking than your proficiency in stats, we've got a little cheat sheet provided by one of your favorite e-commerce sites, Shopbop.
Just for students, the special Shopbop page has a specially curated selection of gear for college ladies including casual day-to-night staples, versatile outerwear, roomy bags, and shoes you'll be able to walk in all day and elicit compliments in. Shopbop's partnered with CollegeFashionista to showcase campus style from around the country on a pretty awesome blog chock-full of real-life inspiration, new merchandise, and style thoughts from Shopbop's style director, Elle Strauss, who also shared with us her 10 picks for the new semester (nearly all ring in under $100!).
