Almost Too Cool For School

September 12

Back to school and back to the mall—is there any better time to spruce up your wardrobe, dust off your dresser, and score some sweet new gadgets?

No matter what your current situation is—work or school, online or in-person—a few simple closet staples can have you looking and feeling your best this fall, even if it’s only for a Zoom meeting or FaceTime call.

It might be hard to imagine putting on real pants lately, but a flattering, comfortable, well-fitting pair of jeans is a wardrobe essential and worthwhile investment. Dress your jeans up with a blazer, down with a hoodie, and match them with anything in between. And if donning denim sounds depressing, try a coloured pair to keep things soft and cozy, distressing to look chic and edgy, and of course, spandex for stretch and comfort, all available at American Eagle Outfitters.

Say it with us: sweater weather! Soft, warm, and stylish, what’s not to love? Sweaters are a great, easy and fast way to stay warm and look more polished than a hoodie or sweatshirt, especially when they’re from H&M. Throw it on before you answer your next virtual meeting, and you’ll be sure to impress.

Kids growing like (very cute) weeds? Save time, and money, with multi-pack buys on wardrobe staples like leggings and tees from The Children’s Place or H&M. When you find what you like, why not buy it in every colour? Or, invest in outfit sets that take the guesswork out of mixing and matching and make getting up and ready for school a breeze.

We’re all spending a little more time online lately, so now is a great time to look at upgrading your internet service, smartphone plan, and getting a device you love that will meet your needs. Talk to an expert in-store at The Source or Freedom Mobile and compare models and plans to find just what you need—and a cute case to protect your investment.

Happy shopping, happy learning, and happy September!
