Sponsored: Can you believe that back to school is right around the corner? That means your teen will not only need school supplies and clothes, but will most likely need some back to school accessories, like new kicks, backpacks, and of course, some nerd glasses (a major essential… *wink wink*).
What teen doesn’t want to look awesome that first day of school anyways?
Let’s be honest here- it’s a mini runway show every year.
But just because your teen wants to look all up-to-date with the latest trends, it doesn’t mean it will empty your pocket book. Here are five back to school accessory trends for teens from rue21 that will make them look runway- I mean hallway- ready.
Booties- Combat boots and other neutral colored Booties are a major back-to-school trend right now. Booties are perfect for wearing with skinny jeans, skater dresses, shorts, jogger pants, and even overalls. Plus, they work for fall, winter, spring, and even summer. Having a good pair of booties are a good back-to-school style investment.
Backpacks and Bags- No teen would want to carry the sad backpack that I had to rock as teen. Thankfully, there are some sweet backpack and school bag styles that are cool enough to wear, even after school. In fact, I want to wear one, too. Is that weird? Seriously though, they have floral, aztec, and chevron prints now… I only had one color and it was navy blue… and probably a hand-me-down.
Jewelry- When is jewelry not in? For back-to-school accessories, it’s all about sweet watches, rings and midi rings, as well as long necklaces and stacked bracelets. Sounds like a lot, huh? Well, the cool thing about accessories is that they don’t have to be expensive at all and they can change the entire look of an outfit. Rue21 has some great accessory options at a low price.
Headbands and Hats- Brimmed hats are not just for moms trying to avoid extra fine lines and wrinkles anymore- teens love brimmed hats, too. And, if their school allows them (some don’t), a back to school hat is a great way to get ready quick and not have to worry if your teen is pressed for time or is having a bad-hair-day-meltdown.
Nerd Glasses- Is this just a west-coast, east-coast, and Austin, TX thing? Or are the rest of American teens getting in on this trend, as well? We are talking teen hipsters and preppy teens alike rocking nerd glasses that have NO prescription, to school. Well, maaaybe being the nerd in school is becoming not so nerdy anymore. I wish that were the case when I was in school… I was a choir nerd and I am not ashamed.
