Style Syllabus: 7 Standout Pieces To Make An Entrance This School Year

For the sartorially minded, the back-to-school jitters are due in large part to the Big Question: What to wear on the first day? The trick is to dress to impress without looking like you're trying too hard.

These flashy numbers are made for only the bravest of souls, but you can tone them down by pairing one with an otherwise plain outift. Or, if you're really ready to make a splash in the campus pond, throw a few on together for a riotous ensemble...don't be afraid to seize the day, 'cause these opportunities to reinvent your style are few and far between!
