Who said going Back to School had to be all about the kids? Bethanie Lunn, resident Style Adviser at Meadowhall Shopping Centre has got some top tips packed away in her backpack to encourage you to treat yourself while you’re picking up the kids’ new school uniform.
Whether you’re a school-run-mum or waving the kids off as you leave the house for work, you can look stylish in one single fail-safe swoop. The blazer is the perfect instant glamouriser- just chuck it on and go. Choose a bright colour like cobalt blue or mint green or brave it in checks or stripes for the most fashion-savvy choices.
The Satchel or the Tote?
Satchels aren’t just for kids, pick up a neon design from Blott to accommodate your daily essentials or, if you’re planning a day out after taking the kids to school, a quirky tote bag from Cath Kidston is ideal. Roomy enough for essentials that cater to you and them.
We’re all about the flats this year – and they’re what your feet need to survive the first term school rush. Schuh have a brilliant range of trainers which will give your look an edge. Choose from Converse, Vans or Nike and make your own kids envious! Or why not stay retro with a pair of Burgundy Brogues from Dorothy Perkins? Slick, practical and ideal for the office too.
